Just as we told you, Chris Eliopoulos is creating a back-up strip in the new Star Wars: Poe Dameron comic. And it stars BB-8 in pre-Force Awakens adventuring….
…though it may doom certain Finnpoe fantasies. Will we see more in issues to come?
Strap in and lock s-foils in attack position because one of the breakout stars of the Star Wars™: The Force Awakens is getting his very own ongoing series! Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside the highly anticipated STAR WARS: POE DAMERON #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices this April! Superstar creators Charles Soule (Lando, Obi-Wan and Anakin) and Phil Noto (Chewbacca) take you to a galaxy far, far away for the new adventures of Poe Dameron – former Republic flyer turned Resistance fighter and the best pilot in the galaxy!
Set before the events of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, be there for Poe's daring adventures as they take him to the edges of the galaxy and back. Hand-picked for the Resistance by legendary General Leia Organa, follow Poe, BB-8 and a squadron of X-Wing pilots on a top-secret mission that could hold the key to saving the galaxy. But with the full might of the First Order on their tail, will the operation be short lived?
Plus – this oversized first issue features a special back-up story starring none other than BB-8! Writer/artist Chris Eliopoulos (Hawkeye) brings you an 8-page tale of everyone's favorite spherical astromech droid as he embarks on a journey all his own!
