The Adventures Continue as IDW and Lucasfilm Bring You an All-New,  All-Ages Graphic Novel Spanning the Star Wars Universe

San Diego, CA (November 2, 2017) – Travel to a galaxy far, far away in the first volume of an all-new series as a rotating cast of characters (and creators) journey through the Star Wars universe! IDW Publishing presents Star Wars Adventures Vol. 1: Heroes of the Galaxy. This volume collects the first two issues from IDW’s ongoing Star Wars Adventures series, as well as the special preview issue that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con.

This all-ages graphic novel features stories by Cavan Scott (Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space) and Landry Q. Walker (Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Tales From a Galaxy Far, Far Away) with fantastic artwork by Eisner Award-winner Derek Charm (Jughead), as well as the creative team of Elsa Charretier & Pierrick Colinet (Star Wars: Forces of Destiny).

Stories span the entire Star Wars universe from the original trilogy, to animation, and through to The Last Jedi, in theaters December 15, 2017. Characters both major and minor, classic and new, expand the world of Star Wars into new territory, telling larger-than-life stories that encapsulate the breadth of the galactic struggle between good and evil for a new generation of fans.

“The great thing about Star Wars Adventures is that, as well as introducing a whole host of people to Star Wars, these issues may even be a kid’s introduction to comics, and to reading in general,” said co-author Cavan Scott. “They can introduce young readers to so many incredible worlds, and really instill a love of reading at an early age. They did for me.”

For fans of all ages and with a mix of old and new characters, Star Wars Adventures will appeal to Jedi everywhere, Master and Padawan alike!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
