Black Spire Outpost on Batuu is beginning to really take shape as more details come out about the home of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It is a remote outpost that attracts pirates, smugglers, merchants, and other wanders. This includes a Hondo Ohnaka, a space pirate, who brought the Millennium Falcon to the outpost.
This April, there will be more being added to the story of this outpost when Marvel releases its new comic series Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This comic will begin to share the backstory behind the new lands coming to the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts later this year.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be a five-issue miniseries. In it, fans will meet Dok-Ondar. He is an infamous Ithorian collector of rare antiquities. The comics will also show the arrival of the First Order on the edge of wild space. According to starwars.com, what might end up saving this lawless outpost is centered on a job pulled by Han Solo and Chewbacca long ago.
Along with the announcement about this new comic series, concept art for Dok-Ondar was also released. He was designed by Karl Lindberg and Iain McCaig. Take a look here:
The comic series is being written by Ethan Sacks. He also recently wrote comics for Star Wars focusing on Jedi Master Mace Windu in the Star Wars: Age of Republic series. Will Sliney will be illustrating the series. He recently illustrated the Beckett one-shot and also the comic adaptation for Solo: A Star Wars Story. The cover is being developed by Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm artists.
