STAR WARS : THE HIGH REPUBLIC ADVENTURES #1-11 (Daniel Jose Older / Harvey Tolibao)

Dévoilée en début d’année, le « Projet Lumineux » est une nouvelle initiative de publication partagée entre Disney Lucasfilm Press, Del Rey, IDW et Marvel Comics . Le « Projet Lumineux » explorera la période de la « Haute République » , qui se déroule environ 200 ans avant La Menace Fantôme . Une ère pleine d’espoir, d’optimisme, où la République et l’Ordre Jedi sont à leur apogée. Mais une nouvelle menace va venir tout bouleverser…

Ces histoires ne se chevaucheront pas avec les futurs films et séries en production, donnant aux différents auteurs toute liberté pour créer de nouvelles aventures de la Saga des Etoiles peuplées de personnages originaux.

Il y a aura des romans pour chaque catégorie de lecteurs (adultes, young adult , jeunesse), dont un écrit par Charles Soule, et des comics IDW ( Star Wars : The High Republic Adventures ) et Marvel ( Star Wars : The High Republic , scénarisé par Cavan Scott, jusque là habitué aux bandes dessinées tous publics de IDW).

Voici le premier aperçu de la série IDW, Star Wars : The High Republic Adventures, par le scénariste Daniel Jose Older et le dessinateur Harvey Tolibao :

Daniel Jose Older :

« I’m so very excited to be able to tell this epic story of Padawans as the galaxy changes dramatically around them and danger lurks around every corner. Working on The High Republic has been a dream come true and getting to watch this world come to life through the brilliant art of Harvey Tolibao is one of the highlights of my career. I can’t wait for the fans to see what we’re cooking up. »
