IDW Publishes A Weekly Star Wars Heroines Comic Just By Women Creators

This year, IDW published their first Star Wars comic, the all-ages Star Wars Adventures. And now they are launching another – but no mere monthly. Or twice-monthly. But the full weekly.

Star Wars Adventures: Forces of Destiny is a weekly comic book series that will star such popular Star Wars heroines as LeiaReyPadméAhsoka, and Hera along with the newest stars from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rose and Paige.

And the book will be written and drawn by female voices only, it seems. Writers Delilah S. DawsonElsa CharretierBeth RevisJody Houser, and Devin Grayson and artists Elsa Charretier, Arianna Florean, Eva Widermann, Valentina Pinto, and Nicoletta Baldari.

Charretier will also contribute five interconnected variant covers, which combine to create a single Forces of Destiny image. Collectible animation cell variant covers will be available, as will a super-rare variant by Annie Wu.
