If you walked out of your screening of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with some questions, then Marvel Comics is looking to answer them for you. Announced earlier today at ComicsPRO in Portland, Oregon, Marvel Comics will be putting the final chapter of the Skywalker saga to the page in a comics adaptation of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Writer Jody Houser (Star Wars: TIE Fighter) and artist Will Sliney (Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren) will be teaming up to retell this epic story in STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER ADAPTATION #1. In addition to the shocking twists and turns that were present in the film, the five-issue limited series will also have brand-new story material for readers to enjoy!
“As a lifelong Star Wars fan, it was an honor to be asked to be a part of wrapping up the Skywalker saga with Marvel Comics,” Houser said. “We have some fun plans to add scenes and material that weren’t seen in the movie.”
Relive Rey’s quest, the Resistance’s desperate last stand, and the return of an old enemy when STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER ADAPTATION #1 hits stands this June!

It seems like Marvel Comics is looking right some wrongs with some of the creative decisions made in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Marvel Comics has made it a common theme to have a bulk of the crucial Star Wars plot lines in the comic books as opposed to having them in the film. Of course, Marvel Comics isn’t to really blame for that. It seems that after severe backlash for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Marvel has to course-correct with a retelling of the film’s story and some newly added plot details.
Despite how anyone feels about it, it should be a nice read nonetheless.
