When Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012, one of the biggest surprises given to fans was the reveal that three new sequel films would be developed, exploring the events following Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. While the two sequel films released so far have explored a number of new characters, there's still a lot of mythology left to uncover, while Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will conclude the journeys of these characters. Luckily, a series of one-shot comic books from Marvel will be debuting this fall which will explore various adventures of some of the key figures in this sequel trilogy.
StarWars.com described, "Marvel's Age of Resistance miniseries — following the popular Age of Republic and Age of Rebellion — kicks off next month, with each issue shining a light on icons of the Resistance and First Order. StarWars.com is excited to reveal four stunning covers by Phil Noto for some of the series' most eagerly anticipated installments, coming in September: Age of Resistance – Rose Tico #1, Age of Resistance – Supreme Leader Snoke #1, Age of Resistance – Rey #1, and Age of Resistance – Kylo Ren #1.
