In a galaxy far, far away there existed a place where pirates, smugglers, merchants and vagrants of all kinds could travel to barter their goods and services. It was located at the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, and this April the upcoming new Star Wars attraction at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, which imagines the notorious outpost, will be explored in a five-issue miniseries published by Marvel Comics.
The official synopsis for the series reads:
Readers of the five-issue miniseries will be the first to meet the infamous Dok-Ondar, the Ithorian collector of rare antiquities, and find out what happens when the First Order reaches the edge of wild space. The key to saving this lawless outpost might just involve a job pulled long ago by none other than Han Solo and his cohort Chewbacca.
The series will be written by Star Wars: Age of Republic writer Ethan Sacks and illustrated by Solo: A Star Wars Story comic artist Will Sliney. Sack teased that Galaxy's Edge has intertwined stories from several eras of Star Wars history and that they are working with Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm to make sure their series keeps in line with the upcoming attraction, which opens later this year. The series will elaborate on the character Dok-Ondar, who was briefly mentioned in the Solo: A Star Wars Story.
"There’s a reason Dok-Ondar’s name ripples far and wide in the Star Wars universe," said Sacks in an interview with StarWars.com. "He’s a mysterious Ithorian who is the proprietor of the most notorious antiquities shop in the galaxy. And every item has a story behind it. Some more dangerous to listen to than others."
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge #1, including the above variant cover by Karl Lindber and Iain McCaig, goes on sale April 2019.
