Want to get a glimpse at the planet Batuu before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in Disneyland this summer and Walt Disney World this fall? Starting in April, you can “journey to this locale in the Outer Rim in the new Marvel Star Wars comic series Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” as announced by StarWars.com!
The five-issue miniseries will introduce Dok-Ondar, “the Ithorian collector of rare antiquities, and find out what happens when the First Order reaches the edge of wild space.” And the article on starwars.com muses that “the key to saving this lawless outpost might just involve a job pulled long ago by none other than Han Solo and his cohort Chewbacca.”
The series is written by Ethan Sacks and illustrated by Will Sliney. And you can read an interview with Ethan sacks on StarWars.com, where he shares that “There’s a reason Dok-Ondar’s name ripples far and wide in the Star Wars universe. He’s a mysterious Ithorian who is the proprietor of the most notorious antiquities shop in the galaxy. And every item has a story behind it. Some more dangerous to listen to than others.”
Sacks also states that, “Our series will give fans the chance to visit Black Spire Outpost months ahead of voyaging to Batuu in person. Armed with top-secret sketches and information from Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm, we are keeping this authentic to the spirit of this rich new setting.”
Again, you can find the full interview here. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge issue #1 will be available in April, and interested readers are advised to reserve a copy at their local comic store or wherever comics are sold.
