In addition to this comic series, The Last Jedi will get an official novel, which will also expand the story of the film. There's no telling right now just how much overlap there will be between the novel and comic, or if each will come with some exclusive new content.
While The Last Jedi was somewhat divisive among fans, a lot of viewers tended to like it better when experiencing it the second time. Getting even more of director Rian Johnson's story could prove to be even more enriching.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi Adaptation will hit shelves on May 2nd.
