January’s Star Wars comics offer a peek into the life of Star Wars: The Last Jedi character DJ, the mystery man played by Benicio Del Toro.
There’s a conclusion, too, in the showdown between Darth Vader and Jocasta Nu.
While in not one, but two, issues of Star Wars, the ashes of Jedha are stoked as the fire burns within Luke Skywalker.
Doctor Aphra finds herself neck deep in trouble, again, as a familiar face may lend a helping hand or, perhaps, a swift kick.
While in the pages of Poe Dameron, Gen. Leia Organa and Black Squadron find themselves stymied in their crucial search for Lor San Tekka on a covert and dangerous mission to Cato Neimoidia.
Read on to find out more about January’s six Marvel Star Wars comics, including creative teams and more.
