It’s right here!
We were intrigued when IDW, in announcing the new series earlier this year, noted that its stories were aimed at younglings and younglings at heart. After two issues, it’s obvious there’s no better way to explain the delightfully scripted and superbly illustrated stories.

To Me, She’s Royalty
When a young-adult Leia novel written by Claudia Gray was announced, I was as full of anticipation as the next fan. Having loved Gray’s previous Star Wars novels, I was eager to see a young Leia novel. And Claudia Gray did not disappointment. Leia: Princess of Alderaan is the Leia book fans have been wanting for decades.
Leia: Princess of Alderaan begins with Leia standing before her parents declaring her intention to someday rule Alderaan and her plan for tasks to test her heart, her body, and her mind. Her transformation and growth in each of these areas is the subject of the book. What unfolds in the story is a year in the life of Leia Organa.
