Star Wars Adventures is an ongoing anthology comic book series set in the Star Wars canon. The IDW Publishing series, of which the first issue came out on July 12, 2017 on and will be released physically as a part of SDCC promotion, while the series will officially start on September 6, features stories from the entirety of Star Wars and is intended for all ages. On January 3, 2018, IDW will publish the first issue of a spinoff weekly miniseries based on the Forces of Destiny animated micro-series.[11] The trade paperback of the The Weapon of a Jedi German comics published by Panini will be titled Star Wars Adventures: The Weapon of a Jedi.[12]



The series was announced on April 14, 2017 at Celebration Orlando during the publishing panel as a new IDW Publishing ongoing comic book series aimed at younger audiences that would tell stories from across the saga.[13]

A day later, in an interview with The Star Wars Show, IDW Publishing chief creative officer Chris Ryall talked more about the series. He revealed the fact that the book will have rotating creative teams and that each issue will feature a lead story about popular characters from the films and back-up stories with lesser known or fan-favorite characters, including the ones from the TV series, hosted by Maz Kanata as the narrator. Ryall also said that some of the back-up stories will not be entirely canon.[14]

On June 6, 2017, Ryall conducted an interview with the podcast Comics with Kenobi, where he spoke about the series. He said that a lot of people messaged him soon after the announcement about them wanting to do this their entire life. This allowed Ryall to make a large creative pool, from which he could pull from in the future. It was explained that while Marvel Comics still has the Star Wars comics licence, they don't have any books aimed at beginner readers, that's where Star Wars Adventures would come in.[15]

Then, on June 14, 2017, IDW released their upcoming comics catalogue, which included the release information on the first and second issue of the series, excluding the SDCC Ashcan. Lead stories in both issues would be about Rey's adventures on Jakku prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, while issue 2 particularly would star Unkar Plutt. Issue 1's back-up story would be a "comical tale of clone catastrophe."[2]

The character of Maz Kanata as the storyteller of the stories featured in the back-ups of each comic was eventually replaced by the adventurer Emil Graf, a new character created for the series.[6] These stories are titled Tales from Wild Space, after Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space, a series of novels by Cavan Scott, which feature characters Milo Graf and Lina Graf.[16]

The first volume was originally solicited to be released as a part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.[17] However, that idea was later dropped.[18]
