Marvel Comics First Look: Star Wars: The Last Jedi #1 of 6
Star Wars: The Last Jedi Adaptation Written by: Gary Whitta | Art: Geoff Shaw, Katie Cook, Frazier Irving Cover: Mike Del Mundo | Variant Cover: Joe Quesada Release Date: May 2, 2018
Marvel is bringing Star Wars: The Last Jedi to comic book fans later this year and while the six-issue adaptation will capture the film's iconic moments it is also going give fans some never before seen material as well as expand on some of the onscreen moments.
My Take: While I personally have no issue with comic book adaptations of films I feel that the release of this is coming at a time when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hype has died down. The added material and story expansion will definitely get hardcore Star Wars comic fans even at an inopportune time.
Check out the cover and Joe Quesada variant cover below.
