The Press Release:
Announced earlier today at StarWars.com, iconic Star Wars character Ahsoka Tano will headline her very own comic book series! Following hit comic book adaptations of Disney+ shows The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka will grace the comic page this July. Transforming all eight episodes to dynamic comic book format, STAR WARS: AHSOKA will be written by Rodney Barnes with art by Steven Cummings and Georges Jeanty, the team who masterfully adapted both seasons of The Mandalorian for Marvel Comics. Cummings and Jeanty will alternate on illustrating, with Cummings launching the series with issue #1.
About The Comic: The ’verse is a complicated and dangerous place, and Malcolm Reynolds and his outlaw crew aboard the Serenity are ever experiencing tough times. When tensions rise among the crew, a call for help becomes a welcome interruption: they must track down a missing friend and the answers to the mystery surrounding her disappearance. Georges Jeanty (Buffy Seasons 8 and 9) returns to the ’verse! iZombie creator Chris Roberson writes the continuing adventures of Mal and crew.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Are you ready to give me a slap on the bean with this disclosure? No? Perhaps you will once I say that I have never seen a single episode of the cult favorite series “Firefly”. Yeah it just ended up happening that way. I missed the boat when it was first on and then I never looked back into it despite my friends saying how I would love it because it was awesome. Don’t worry there is a super affordable Blu-ray set available and I will investigate picking that up so I can join in with the rest of you. So that admission makes this a series that while lost on me, would truly be something that pleases the fans of the short-lived show. Speaking frankly, I just love that Dark Horse Comics is keeping this mythology vibrant by offering up new adventures of the characters that were on the show. What do you readers think about this new series? Will you be collecting it in single issue format or waiting on a collected edition to have it all in one place. Let me know in the comments section below.
