Holy City, Batman! The Star Wars comic book series is going to Jedha. Specifically, in the saga time period between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, Luke, Leia and Han are going to Jedha! This is Kieron Gillen’s first issue of the flagship Star Wars comic book series. Oh, and do I have to mention that it’s *canon* in the New Star Wars Canon? Can’t wait to see what else is unearthed on Jedha.
“THE ASHES OF JEDHA. KIERON GILLEN’S FIRST ISSUE ON STAR WARS. The Rebel Alliance turns its attention to the shattered planet of Jedha. Once the site of great significance to the Jedi, Jedha was left in ruins when the Death Star annihilated the Holy City there. Now, new series writer Kieron Gillen joins artist Salvador Larroca to bring Luke, Leia, Han, and the rest to the remains of the tragic victim of the Empire’s fury. Rated T”
