There is no doubt that The Mandalorian has made the biggest splash in the Star Wars Franchise since the launch of Disney+. So it just makes sense that we may want to revisit the story that really gave Star Wars a nice jump start after the less-than-stellar films. So with that said, Marvel Comics announced today that they would be bringing the Mandalorian story to the pages of their comic books.
Starting in July, Marvel Comics will release an eight-issue miniseries titled, Star Wars: The Mandalorian. It will be an adaptation of the Disney+ series’ first season. This will give fans the opportunity to relive the memorable events and characters from the first season through the storytelling of writer Rodney Barnes and artist Georges Jeanty. We will see everything from the introduction of Din Djarin to his unforgettable first encounter with the then called “The Child”. Below are some of the eight covers that are going to be available as well as some of the interiors.
“The story of the Mandalorian checks so many boxes of the stuff I’m passionate about,” Barnes told StarWars.com. “I love Westerns, fantasy, science fiction, comedy, drama…it’s a dream gig for any writer. I’m just glad I was chosen for this assignment!”
“I’ve always thought an artist’s style is a lot like writing in short hand. It’s very subjective. What I bring to Star Wars is my detail and love for a galaxy far, far away,” Said Jeanty. “Star Wars, especially where bounty hunters are concerned, is a messy landscape. I love drawing all the little details. My look has always be detail oriented, and with The Mandalorian there is so much going on with the character and in the background, and I look forward to adding visually to the already rich tapestry that makes up this universe!”
