The Last Jedi’s Crait highlighted in upcoming OT-era comic

Lucasfilm and Marvel have announced a one-shot comic that will tie into The Last Jedi and give us more about the salt-covered planet of Crait. Storms of Crait #1 will be written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, with art by Mike Mayhew. It will take us back to the era of the Galactic Civil War (pre-ESB, judging by Luke’s lightsaber) and “reveal major elements of its history.”

In addition to what we’ve seen in The Last Jedi promo footage, Crait has already had a first Expanded Universe appearance, in Claudia Gray’s novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan.

The first issue cover is by Marco Checchetto. The comic will roll into the shops on December 27.
