He might have not gotten the respect he deserved during the medal ceremony at the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (and no, the shout-out during the MTV Movie Awards doesn’t rectify things, LucasFilm), but this October, the Millennium Falcon’s co-pilot and one of the Rebel Alliance’s fiercest warriors is getting his own miniseries from Marvel Comics! With Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening in December, Marvel (which, along with LucasFilm, is owned by Disney) has published or announced a gaggle of Star Wars-related comic series and miniseries: Star Wars, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, C-3PO, Lando, Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Shattered Empire, just to name a few. It only makes sense that Marvel would want to explore smuggler Han Solo’s best-good-buddy in his own adventure. Check out these preview pages of Chewbacca #1 that Marvel was kind enough to share!
The miniseries will follow the Kashyyyk warrior as he attempts to leave a planet occupied by the Empire after having crash-landed into the belly of the beast. Here are the full details Marvel has provided:
