Force Awakens Comic Series Coming from Marvel

Marvel recently announced the launch of a five issue comic book adaptation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens which will hit shelves in June. It will be written by Chuck Wendig with art from Luke Ross.

Read more about the series and see other character sketches from Luke Ross after the jump.

Comic Book Resources brought us the news:
"Wendig is no stranger to the Star Wars universe, having written the 2015 novel 'Star Wars: Aftermath.' Ross, a Marvel veteran, was most recently seen as the artist on the current 'Hercules' series. The 'Force Awakens' comic adaptation will also feature covers from 'Secret Wars' artist Esad Ribic. 
''The Force Awakens' knocked our socks off from the very first time we saw it, and we could not wait to start being able to play with these new, awesome characters!' editor Jordan D. White told CBR. 'Now, we get to bring all of them to the pages of our comics with an adaptation of the film we loved so much! We’re all fans first, so it’s all love that is bringing these pages to life!'"
