STAR WARS: DEL TORO’S LAST JEDI CHARACTER WILL HAVE OWN SOLO COMIC

As soon as Benicio Del Toro was cast in the latest Star Wars film speculation and rumors started swirling on who he was in the universe. Many think he’s Ezra from Rebels, but we finally got a name a couple months ago, DJ. In what we know so far, DJ will play an important part in the mission that brings Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) to Canto Bight, a gambling locale. While the film will give us DJ’s in-the-flesh antics, Marvel Comics will be detailing the character, even more, when they unleash a brand-new comic that’s set to arrive in January of next year.

Written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker with art by Kev Walker, Star Wars: The Last Jedi – DJ #1 will introduce readers to a day in DJ’s life, offering insight into the character’s actions after his theatrical arrival.

You can check out the official listing for the upcoming title below:
