Star Wars Adventures: First Storylines, Creative Teams Revealed

IDW Publishing made it official this past April at Star Wars Celebration that the San Diego-based company would publish Star Wars Adventures, a new all-ages ongoing series telling Star Wars stories that are billed as “both canon and accessible.” The series is set to debut in September, and CBR has the first word on the initial creative team and storylines.

Star Wars Adventures #1 is scheduled for release on Sept. 6, written by Cavan Scott, a veteran of multiple Doctor Who stories for Titan Comics, and illustrated by Eisner-nominated IDW mainstay Derek Charm, who illustrated the main promotional art released when the series was announced. Issue #2 is from the same team, and expected two weeks later, on Sept. 20.

Both issues are set to tell tales of Rey’s early days on Jakku, including a story in issue #2 co-starring Unkar Plutt, who famously offered Rey merely “one-quarter portion” in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Additionally, #1 will include a “comical tale of clone catastrophe.”

“They will be original stories, primarily,” IDW President and Chief Operating Officer Greg Goldstein told CBR in an interview about the strategy behind Star Wars Adventures. “They will be set in the entire Star Wars combined universe: They can be the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, the modern films, some of the offshoots that are still considered part of the canon.”

CBR has confirmed that more creators will be announced for the series in coming months. Full solicitation text for both issues and covers follow below.
