Lucasfilm’s dandy Dan Brooks recently spent some time chatting with author Jody Houser about the upcoming Marvel The Rise of Skywalker comic adaptation series that set to debut in June. Check out the intro to Houser’s brief interview segment copied below and then head on over to StarWars.com for the full read.
In Star Wars storytelling, comic-book adaptations hold a legacy that dates all the way back to 1977, starting with the very first Star Wars comics ever made. So Marvel’s recent announcement that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the last film of the Skywalker saga, would be making the jump to comics is especially significant. (The circle is now complete, one might say.)
Written by Jody Houser with art by Will Sliney and covers by Phil Noto, Marvel’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker kicks off in May. But it’s no ordinary retelling: the five-issue miniseries will include scenes not seen in theaters. StarWars.com, wayfinder in hand, tracked down Houser to learn more — and to make a request.
