One of the most disappointing things in The Last Jedi was Benicio Del Toro’s character of DJ, the hacker/smuggler that Rose and Finn run into in a prison cell on Canto Bight.
One moment he betrays them and gives them up to the First Order and the next moment you wonder where the hell did he go during that Holdo Hyper Speed sequence. Is he dead? Did he get off of Snoke’s star destroyer before it got it? Whatever the case we were left with a lot of questions.
Continuing the trend of Star Wars one-shot stories, today Marvel releases Star Wars: The Last Jedi – DJ: Most Wanted #1.
The comic takes place right before Finn and rose’s encounter with DJ. Basically his story on Canto Bight leading up to his imprisonment.
Here’s a quick synopsis of the story:
When STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI takes theaters in FORCE (get it?) this December, Star Wars fans will get a peek into some new dark corners of the Galaxy Far Away…and out of one of those corners scuttles DJ, the mysterious character played by Benecio Del Toro! Who is this mystery man, and what put him in the path of our Resistance heroes? Join Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Star Wars Join the Resistance, Star Wars: The Last Jedi – The Storms of Crait) and Kev Walker (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Darkhawk) as they reveal a day in DJ’s life just before his appearance in the film!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – DJ #1 is out on January 31st, priced $3.99.
