A Star Wars manga 43 years in the making is finally here. Thanks to a collaboration between Viz Media and Lucasfilms we’re finally getting an official StarWars manga! Star Wars: The Legend of Luke Skywalker: The Manga.

There’s been many stories about run ins with the Jedi himself, but with artists such as  Akira Himekawa, Haruichi, Subaru, Akira Fukaya, and Takashi Kisaki, they tell his story brilliantly and really help bring him to life for the readers. 

One of the best things about this is worlds are colliding and it aims to please both Star Wars and Manga fans as well. Capturing that same feeling of star wars that we’ve all known to love. The Manga was inspired by Nebula Hugo and World Fantasy award-winning author Ken Liu’s Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Here’s a little more detail on the hardworking artists that worked on this amazing project.

As an artist and writer team, Fukaya and Kisaki frequently collaborate on manga projects published in Japan. Fukaya has been enthralled with Star Wars since he was in elementary school. The starships and character designs, as well as the planets portrayed in the films, inspired him to create stories of his own. The Starship Graveyard is their English manga debut.

HARUICHI

A longtime fan of the Star Wars galaxy, Haruichi is also the creator behind the Star Wars Japanese webtoon, Leia Organa: Ordeal of the Princess. Haruichi has always admired characters like Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and especially Obi-Wan Kenobi, but lately she has a growing affection for the stormtroopers.
