So it won’t come as a surprise that the publisher announced an Ahsoka comic adapting the Disney+ original series.

The first issue will feature a cover by David Nakayama.

Official press release below:

Announced earlier today at, iconic Star Wars character Ahsoka Tano will headline her very own comic book series! Following hit comic book adaptations of Disney+ shows The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka will grace the comic page this July. Transforming all eight episodes to dynamic comic book format, STAR WARS: AHSOKA will be written by Rodney Barnes with art by Steven Cummings and Georges Jeanty, the team who masterfully adapted both seasons of The Mandalorian for Marvel Comics. Cummings and Jeanty will alternate on illustrating, with Cummings launching the series with issue #1.

A fan-favorite character since her debut in the beloved Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series, Ahsoka Tano is now at the forefront of pop culture thanks to recent appearances in The Mandalorian and her self-titled series. Now, she hits comic stands in her first-ever solo comic book run.

STAR WARS: AHSOKA will deliver all the action and drama from the show as it follows Ahsoka’s galaxy-spanning quest to bring Grand Admiral Thrawn to justice. The saga also featured the villainous Morgan Elsbeth, introduced mysterious Force-users Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati and marked the live-action debuts of various characters from the Star Wars Rebels animated series including Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla, and Ezra Bridger. Relive all these thrilling moments and more in a brand-new way!

“It is truly an honor to be adapting Ahsoka,” Barnes told “The character is the essence of classic Star Wars: layered, complex and fun! I hope the fans enjoy this adaptation as much as the series it’s adapted from.”

“We’re big fans here at Marvel, and we’ve been wanting to do something with Ahsoka for a long time,” Editor Mark Paniccia shared. “By the Force our dream finally came true!”

Look for Star Wars: Ahsoka #1 (of 8) to arrive in stores this July.
