The First Order Strikes Back! Your First Look at JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – CAPTAIN PHASMA #1!
Marvel Comics Presents the Essential Bridge Between STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI!
New York, NY—June 14, 2017—It’s the galaxy’s big mystery: How did Captain Phasma survive the destruction of the Starkiller Base in the final moments of Star 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!

Marvel’s ICEMAN Stops Villains Cold in their Tracks -- Your 1st Look!
Sina Grace and Alessandro Vitti Helm New X-Men Solo Series
New York, NY—May 12, 2017— This June, Bobby Drake steps out into the cold with an all-new solo X-Men series written by Sina Grace (All-New X-Men Annual, Self-Obsessed) coupled with artwork by Alessandro Vitti (Avengers Arena, Secret Warriors) with Marvel Comics’ ICEMAN #1.
Bobby Drake has been in the Super Hero game longer than most – one of the original X-Men, a founding member of the Champions, and discovered to be an Omega-level mutant, but while reflecting on all he’s accomplished over the years, he realizes that the legacy he’s built can be so much more! "Iceman has one of the most tenured legacies as a Marvel Super Hero and was one of the originators of the modern Marvel Universe,” said series writer Sina Grace. “As a lifelong X-Men fan (I've got the dog-eared floppies to prove it!), writing Iceman has been the greatest and most challenging project I've been lucky enough to work on. Writing this series has been like making best friends with someone who's been in my class for years, but I never took the time to ask how they were doing. Turns out, Bobby Drake has a LOT to say paired with a LOT of achievements he’s still looking to unlock."
Also added to the mix, a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream and he’s more put together than Bobby ever was: already a world-class hero in his own right, but also totally comfortable in his own skin, complete with a relationship with a handsome Inhuman to boot.
In this new ongoing series it’s time for Bobby Drake to realizes that it’s now or never, and sets out to build a life and legacy he can be proud of…and be the best ICEMAN he can be!
