Chewbacca to get his own comic!

It finally happened! They finally let the Wookie win! Everyone’s favorite walking carpet is getting his own comic book as part of Marvel Comics continued expansion of their line of “Star Wars” comics.

Set to be written by Gerry Duggan (Deadpool) and featuring art by Black Widow‘s Phil Noto, the series is set to take place after the original Star Wars film and won’t replace any of the Wookiee’s signature growling with actual words.

“It’s one of the first things we talked about,” Duggan says. “That we were going to let Chewie be Chewie and not try and change anything that’s on the internal [dialogue], the caption boxes or anything like that. But you know, a little bit of good news here is that Phil Noto is my collaborator on this book, and he’s gonna be able to tell the story whether or not there are any balloons or boxes at all.’

“Chewie is on an important mission when we first meet him. He would not use the term crash-landed, but Han would disagree. He’s obviously been marooned on this planet at least temporarily, with a loaner ship that he got from the rebellion. And their roadside service is not great, so he’s got a little bit of work to do there to get the ship back up and running. This planet is at a crossroads. There are forces there that want — like the Empire — to strip it of its resources. And obviously [there] would be some people that would be very opposed to that, and Chewie throws in with, with the good guys. He’s gonna set aside his mission for the greater good of this planet, and this new friend.”

Star Wars: Chewbacca #1 is set for release in October.
