‘Star Wars: Forces of Destiny’ Comic Books Coming in January 2018

IDW Publishing will be launching a 5-part 'Forces of Destiny' comic series early next year

Longing for more Forces of Destiny stories starring your favourite Star Wars heroines? Then you’re in luck! Lucasfilm has teamed up with IDW Publishing to create a new five-issue comic book series based on the popular 2D animated series.

Announced during the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at New York Comic Con 2017, Star Wars Adventures: Forces of Destiny is scheduled to land in our galaxy in January 2018 and will be a weekly series featuring artwork and original stories by a talented team of female writers and comic book artists.

Much like the animated series, the comic series will focus on the adventures of fan favourites, such as Leia Organa, Rey, Padmé Amidala, Hera Syndulla, and Ahsoka Tano, as well as Rose and Paige Tico from The Last Jedi (which will out in cinemas worldwide this December). The women tasked with bringing our iconic heroines’ stories to life are writers Delilah S. Dawson (Phasma), Beth Revis (Rebel Rising), Jody Houser (Rogue One comic adaptation), Elsa Charretier, and Devin Grayson, and artists Arianna Florean, Eva Widermann, Elsa Charretier, Valentina Pinto, and Nicoletta Baldari.

Fans can also expect a selection of variant covers, including five interconnected covers by Charretier and a super-rare variant by Annie Wu. You can find some samples of Ms. Wu’s cover art over on her website.

Update: According to this tweet and Dan Brook’s article on StarWars.Com, the five issues will be broken down as follows:

  1. Leia Organa – Elsa Charretier (art and story) and Pierrick Colinet (story);
  2. Rey – Jody Houser (story) and Arianna Florean (art);
  3. Hera Syndulla – Devin Grayson (story) and Eva Widderman (art);
  4. Ahsoka Tano and Padmé Amidala – Beth Revis (story) and Valentina Pinto (art);
  5. Rose and Paige Tico – Delilah S. Dawson (story) and Nicoletta Baldari (art).

 

Star Wars Adventures: Forces of Destiny will be out in January 2018 and will be published weekly. For more information, check out IDW Publishing’s full press release over here.
