FIRST LOOK at Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Captain Phasma #1

June 18th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It’s the galaxy’s big mystery: How did Captain Phasma survive the destruction of the Starkiller Base in the final moments ofStar Wars: The Force Awakens?

All will be revealed this September, when superstar writer Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Star Wars Annual) teams with blockbuster artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Star Wars: Screaming Citadel) to bring you JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – CAPTAIN PHASMA #1, a four-part miniseries bridging the events between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

Captain Phasma’s fate seemed like it was sealed when she was cornered by the Resistance and thrown into a garbage compactor before the Starkiller Base was destroyed. But it’s going to take much more than that to keep this chrome-armored warrior down!

“The Star Wars films, with so many fantastic characters, obviously can’t be a ‘Phasma story,’ and it’s especially cool that Phasma is getting explored in depth in both her forthcoming novel and comic book,” said series writer Kelly Thompson. “The most exciting thing to me about our mini-series is that we were given the awesome responsibility of bridging a gap between Force Awakens and Last Jedi – of answering the question of what happened to Phasma after she went into that trash chute. Anytime you get to write official Star Wars is pretty incredible, but getting to decide what that link is, for a super intriguing character in some of the most epic movies of all time, is next level!”

As you prepare up to welcome Captain Phasma back into your life in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, don’t miss the thrilling and epic story of the First Order’s most formidable stormtrooper in JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – CAPTAIN PHASMA #1, on sale this September!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
