The Mandalorian will come to comic shops in June when Marvel Comics launches an eight-issue limited series that is adapted directly from the first season of the series, which runs on the Disney+ streaming service. Rodney Barnes will write the series, and Georges Jeanty will be the artist, and each issue will have several variant covers. The artist for the main cover of the first issue is Adi Granov.

This will not quite be the title character’s first comics appearance: He and “Baby Yoda” appeared on a variant cover for Darth Vader #20 (see “First Cover Appearances Are Flying Under the Radar”).

The Mandalorian launched on Disney+ in 2019, and the second season was the first Disney+ show to make it into Neilson’s top 10 (see “‘The Mandalorian’ Cracks Nielsen Top 10”). A spinoff, The Book of Boba Fett, premiered in December 2021 (see “‘Book of Boba Fett’ Trailer”).
