“Lucasfilm is thrilled to expand our relationship with the talented and creative folks at IDW to bring Star Wars comics to kids,” said Michael Siglain, Creative Director of Lucasfilm Publishing. “IDW has an incredible pedigree of talent, and we look forward to working with them on the creation of these fun, action-packed adventures that span the entire Star Wars saga.”
“IDW has long sought to offer the next generation of comic book fans ample reading choices, and being able to provide Star Wars comics aimed directly at that audience is a massive thrill,” added Chris Ryall of IDW. “Disney has been a great collaborator with us and we’re very excited to delve into this particular corner of the galaxy.”
The new line of comics will get underway with the launch title, Star Wars Adventures, which is part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi publishing program and will get underway in the fall.
