Marvel Comics has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of Star Wars #21, from writer Jason Aaron (The Mighty Thor) and artist Jorge Molina (A-Force), and featuring a cover by David Aja (Hawkeye).
Taking place between the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars #21 introduces a new squad of Stormtroopers called the Elite, led by Sgt. Kreel, the undercover agent who taught Luke Skywalker how to fight with a lightsaber in Grakkus the Hutt's pit. Aaron said back in April that he hopes to give these Stormtroopers a little more depth than most receive.
"The main thing I wanted to do was give more of a face to some of the stormtroopers," writer Jason Aaron told StarWars.com. "We've seen lots of them in the series, but they've all been pretty interchangeable, faceless bad guys. We haven't gotten to know them. That was one of my favorite parts of The Force Awakens, getting to see and getting to know a real character who was a stormtrooper and somebody who, of course, has a conscience and changed his ways and joined up with the good guys."
Star Wars #21 goes on sale July 20. Check out the preview pages in the gallery below.
