The 48-page middle-grade comic will include stories by Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel Jose Older, Cavan Scott, and Charles Soule, all of whom have been writing comics and prose works set in the High Republic era (see “‘Star Wars: The High Republic’ Publishing Campaign Coming in 2020”). The artists for the annual are Sam Beck, Jesse Lonergan, Jason Loo, Yael Nathan, and Stefano Simeone. The comic will be available with two covers, one by Simeone and one by Loo.
“It’s super-exciting to be able to share a story featuring Vernestra and Stellan!” said Ireland. “Getting a chance to show them working together while Vernestra was a Padawan has been a ton of fun.”
And Scott commented, “It’s great to be back writing my favorite Tempest Runner, Lourna Dee, who takes on a rather surprising Jedi. There’s one thing you can be sure about with Lourna: she always looks after what matters most… herself!”
