Storms Of Crait Comic Reveals Backstory To Star Wars: The Last Jedi

In Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, the Resistance hunkers down on Crait in hopes that they can hold off the First Order long enough to ensure the Resistance’s survival – but over thirty years before that happened, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa scouted the location as a potential base for the Rebel Alliance. An all-new one-shot comic will tell that story.

 

 

According to Newsarama, the comic is 40 pages in length, is written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, and is illustrated by Mike Mayhew. A preview of the cover (illustrated by Marco Checchetto), followed by six textless pages previewing the comic, can be seen below:

 

 

The official press release is as follows:

This December, the soon-to-be thrilling Star Wars: The Last Jedi rocks movie screens across the world…and the reverberations are felt all around a galaxy far, far away! First up, learn the secret of the mineral planet Crait! Long before it became a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa led the Rebellion there in search of a new home! From writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Star Wars Join the Resistance) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire) comes the backstory to this winter’s biggest adventure!

The comic will hit shelves on December 27.
