Starwars.com has shared a new publishing program centered on the Disney+ show The Mandalorian, and while it mostly centers on books and novels, it does confirm that the popular bounty hunter and The Child — aka Baby Yoda — are coming to comics.
According to the post, “The Mandalorian-inspired comics are coming from Marvel and IDW Publishing,” both of whom have licenses to create comics based on the Star Wars properties.
Marvel’s line skews a bit older, toward teens and above, while IDW’s is aimed at younger readers. So I’m sure we’ll be seeing something from both of them on this soon. In addition to the Mandalorian and The Child, the show has introduced several other characters into the Star Wars universe, like Cara Dune, Greef Karga and IG-11, whose backstories would be ripe for a miniseries.
