Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still rounding out its theatrical run, but fans will able to take in the story in a whole new way this spring. Just as it did with Rogue One, Marvel will be publishing a six-issue comic adaptation of The Last Jedi, to be written by Gary Whitta with art from Michael Walsh and Mike Spicer. And rest assured, this sacred Jedi text will be a page-turner.

The six issues will retell the story of Rian Johnson’s film, but Marvel is also promising that the series will contain “never-before-seen” material. Perhaps, like the upcoming novelization of The Last Jedi, the comic adaptation will contain scenes of Han Solo’s funeral and further elaborate the relationship between Resistance sisters Paige and Rose Tico. Or perhaps it’ll be something else entirely. Mike del Mundo’s cover for the first issue certainly paints porgs in a whole new light.

The first two issues of Marvel’s The Last Jedi comic will hit stores on May 2, with the second issue following on May 16. Below, check out a variant cover for the first issue featuring Rey in her Jakku days, illustrated by none other than former Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada.
