Marvel has announced that it will be releasing a brand new eight-issue, episode-by-episode comic book adaptation of the first season of Disney+ Original series “Star Wars: The Mandalorian”.
This new comic book series is being written by Rodney Barnes and is being illustrated by Georges Jeanty. Plus there will also be several variant covers available for each instalment.
Rodney Barnes told StarWars.com about the upcoming project:
“The story of the Mandalorian checks so many boxes of the stuff I’m passionate about. I love Westerns, fantasy, science fiction, comedy, drama…it’s a dream gig for any writer. I’m just glad I was chosen for this assignment!”
With Georges Jeanty adding:
“I’ve always thought an artist’s style is a lot like writing in short hand. It’s very subjective. What I bring to Star Wars is my detail and love for a galaxy far, far away. Star Wars, especially where bounty hunters are concerned, is a messy landscape. I love drawing all the little details. My look has always be detail oriented, and with The Mandalorian there is so much going on with the character and in the background, and I look forward to adding visually to the already rich tapestry that makes up this universe!”

This new comic book series is coming out in June and the first two seasons of “The Mandalorian” are available to watch on Disney+ now.
