SDCC 2015 – Chewbacca is Getting His Own Comic at Marvel

Chewbacca’s getting his own comic?!?! How do you say “HELLS YEAH!” in Shyriiwook?  Probably something close to this. Chewy has been a fan favorite ever since the original movie drop on the 70’s. His popularity has grown and sustained in the 40 years since. It comes with mild surprise, but extreme excite, that Chewy is hopping out of the co-pilot chair and taking the helm. Here’s to promises of beautiful Kashyyyk landscape panels, bowcaster action and Stormtrooper limb dismemberment!

The series will be written by Gerry Duggan (of Deadpool fame) and drawn by Phil Noto (of Black Widow fame). Black Widow doesn’t have much dialogue, so it is reassuring to know that Wookie who grunts will have a good story; Noto is a genius at telling the story through his art.

In his interview with MTV, Duggan revealed that Chewy will have a companion who speaks the native language of the planet. She will help audiences out for every ‘aaaaaaaaaaaaarggghhh’ we see. I imagine this will be similar to the current Marvel book Groot.

Chewbacca #1 will be in your local comic shop this October!

When I meet people one of the first things I tell them is that I’m a nerd. Half my closet is decked out with Star Wars gear (my favorite pieces are my Clone Trooper cuff links). I own each movie, miniseries and TV show more times over than most. More than half my book shelves are stuffed with novels, comics and stories. I’ve thoroughly beaten and explored each of the SW video games I own. Collectibles? Got ‘em. Lightsabers? Got ‘em. Cry tears of joy at news of Episode VII? Did it.
