First images from the official comic book of The Mandalorian
Are you looking forward to the return of Din Djarin and Grogu in season 3 of The Mandalorian? Well… relax! You won’t have to wait for the premiere of ‘season 3’ on Disney+ because Marvel, the publisher of Star Wars comics, has previewed the first official issue of the comic based on the hit TV series.
This very week, more specifically on Wednesday, July 13, Marvel Comics is publishing issue 1 of Star Wars: The Mandalorian. It is about the adventures we lived in the first season of the Disney+ series, but in comic format. That is, you will be able to relive the first encounter between the bounty hunter and, at the time, The Child/Baby Yoda.
The Mandalorian comic, as we said, is a review of all the episodes that make up the first season of the Star Wars series created by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. It will have eight issues in total and will be a prized collector’s item for all those who love the TV show starring Pedro Pascal.
Thanks to the official Star Wars website, we now have a first look at the first pages of The Mandalorian, the comic. Evidently, the first mission consists of that adventure of the bounty hunter -still without full beskar suit- in search of the mythrol on the planet Pagodon in the Outer Rim. An adaptation of the first episode.
The Star Wars comic book series will adapt the eight episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian, so we will relive the birth of the paternal-filial relationship between the protagonist and the little Grogu. We will also meet again characters like Kuiil, Greef Karga, Cara Dune, IG-11, the Armera or the dangerous Moff Gideon.
“The story of The Mandalorian touches on many of the things I’m most passionate about in the world,” said writer Rodney Barnes, who is in charge of translating the comic. “I love westerns, I love fantasy and sci-fi, comedy, drama… This assignment is a dream job for any writer – I’m glad I was chosen!”
“I’ve always felt that an artist’s style is a lot like abbreviated writing,” contributed cartoonist George Jeanty. “Star Wars, especially when it comes to bounty hunter mythology, presents a chaotic landscape. I love drawing the little details. My style has always been detail-oriented and with The Mandalorian there’s a lot going on at the same time with the character and the environment. I’m hoping to add something visually interesting to the already rich tapestry of this universe!”
