While IDW Publishing’s saga-spanning all-ages series Star Wars Adventures doesn’t arrive until September, San Diego Comic-Con attendees will get a special early look in an “ashcan” preview.
Thanks to our friends at IDW, however, StarWars.com readers can download the complete ashcan right now: click this link to view or right click to save, or check it out in the gallery below.
Written by Landry Q. Walker — who StarWars.com can confirm will later write for the series — and illustrated by regular series artist Derek Charm, the preview is a charming introduction to what we can expect from Star Wars Adventures. C-3PO and Artoo address the reader, bickering and telling short stories of, well, Star Wars adventures: we see a boyish Luke Skywalker getting into trouble on Tatooine, young Anakin Skywalker fleeing with some important parts for a personal project, and more. It’s delightful and the stories are genuinely surprising. The ashcan, coming to comic shops as well, also offers a glimpse of the classic 2D animation-like visual style of the ongoing series.
For more on Star Wars Adventures and all things Star Wars publishing, SDCC goers should be sure to attend the panel “Lucasfilm Publishing Presents: New Stories from a Galaxy Far, Far Away….” Set for Friday, July 21, from 12-1 p.m., it will feature Christian Blauvelt (Star Wars Made Easy), Cullen Bunn (Darth Maul), Christie Golden (Inferno Squad), Claudia Gray (Leia: Princess of Alderaan), Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Jedi Academy: The Force Oversleeps), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), Beth Revis (Rebel Rising), and Landry Q. Walker (Star Wars Adventures) discussing their latest stories set in a galaxy far, far away. There will also be some sneak peeks at upcoming stories, surprise guests, and giveaways.
Look for Star Wars Adventures #1, written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Derek Charm, in stores and digital on September 6.
