In case you missed the news out of NYCC, Viz Media have added the Star Wars franchise to its publishing catalog with the acquisition of STAR WARS: THE LEGENDS OF LUKE SKYWALKER: THE MANGA.

Scheduled for release in early 2020, the anthology will feature a collection of stories by a cadre of renowned manga luminaries that include Akira Himekawa, Haruichi, Akira Fukaya, Takashi Kisaki and Subaru. Akira Himekawa created the bestselling THE LEGEND OF ZELDA manga franchise (also published by VIZ Media), inspired by the classic Nintendo® puzzle-solving, role-playing video games. Haruichi is the creator of Leia Organa: Ordeal of the Princess, an official Star Wars Line Webcomic based on the YA Novel, Leia: Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray.

Speaking about the announcement, Brad Woods, the Chief Marketing Officer of VIZ Media, said “With the global appeal of the Star Wars franchise, this publishing release offers an exciting new way to enjoy the brand from the perspective of master manga storytellers. STAR WARS: THE LEGENDS OF LUKE SKYWALKER features the dynamic vision and bold art styles of some of the manga genre’s most celebrated creators and artists. We invite readers to discover this release early next year.”

STAR WARS: THE LEGENDS OF LUKE SKYWALKER: THE MANGA is adapted from the hit Star Wars novel, Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi—The Legends of Luke Skywalker, written by the Nebula, Hugo and World Fantasy award-winning author Ken Liu.
