IDW to Publish Star Wars Comics

The comic book publisher will also release a collection of themed newspaper strips next month.

Disney Licensed Publishing has tapped IDW Publishing to create a new series of Star Wars-inspired comic books for young readers.

The first title from the partnership, “Star Wars Adventures,” will join Disney’s current “Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi” publishing program, which will see the release of an array of content leading up to the film’s release this December, and is slated to debut this fall. However, additional storyline details for the comic series will be made public at a later date.

"Lucasfilm is thrilled to expand our relationship with the talented and creative folks at IDW to bring Star Wars comics to kids," says Michael Siglain, creative director, 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."

Additionally, IDW Publishing will release a new collection of Star Wars newspaper strips this May.
