Princess Leia comic launches March

Recommended Posts

Star Wars: Princess Leia, launching this month, is a five-issue Marvel comic series following the leading lady of the Star Wars trilogy.The new comic series is set immediately after A New Hope and sees Leia finally get the chance to deal with the aftermath of the destruction of Alderaan and being the last Organa.

The comic, written by Mark Waid and pencilled by Terry Dodson, sees Leia recruit a female X-wing pilot names Evaan and head out in search citizens of Alderaan who managed to avoid the devastating attack by the Death Star.

Waid has stated that even if he hadn't been offered the job of writing this comic it would have been his first choice, as he loved how the character of Leia was set up as in a classic damsel in distress scenario, only to take charge of the situation. "That was so unique at the time, and sadly, it's still a little unique", he said during an interview at San Diego ComicCon last year.

You can find out more and see a preview of the comic over at USA Today.

    • Marvel's Netflix shows

      Netflix have done quite a few Marvel shows now, starting with Daredevil, then Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and now Iron Fist. Has anybody else been keeping up with them?
      Iron Fist is just out and I've found it okay so far, although apparently critics are slamming it. The main gripe appears to be about 'cultural appropriation', because apparently it's unacceptable for a white American man to learn martial arts...
      But anyway, I've been enjoying it as I have liked all the Netflix offerings for the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far.
      This is all, of course, leading up to The Defenders which will see the continuity of each individual series link up.

      So this show piqued my interest on the X-men relation alone.
       
      Watched the first episode last week... and boy, this thing is so TRIPPY. And AWESOME.
      Like I don't even know what I am watching half of the time.
       
      I will look for a trailer or teaser...  Here is one. I am sure there are others.
