Special Women’s History Month Variant Covers will grace Marvel’s Star Wars comic titles throughout the month of March.
The press release follows:
Media Release — From Jedi Knights to Rebel leaders, the course of the Star Wars galaxy has been shaped by legendary women heroes! In honor of Women’s History Month, Marvel Comics will spotlight some of these iconic characters in new variant covers.
Featured on all of Marvel’s current Star Wars comic series hitting stands in March, the seven STAR WARS WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH VARIANT COVERS are drawn by the industry’s leading women artists and depict characters from Star Wars storytelling including films, television and streaming series, and comics.
Each brave and inspiring in their own unique way, here are the characters highlighted this year:
· Ahsoka Tano, former Jedi Knight who served as Anakin Skywalker’s fierce Padawan during the Clone Wars. Ahsoka’s heroic exploits after walking away from the Jedi Order have made her one of the franchise’s most beloved characters and last year, she starred in her own hit live-action series on Disney+ which will be adapted to comic book form this summer!
· Fennec Shand, feared assassin and elite mercenary whose deadly skills are a highlight of shows like The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.
· Mon Mothma, one of the key founders of the Rebel Alliance known for carefully guiding her fellow Rebels in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and more recently, Andor.
· Omega, member of the mighty clone crew, Clone Force 99. Armed with her trademark energy bow, she carves out a new life for herself and her brothers in the Star Wars: The Bad Batch animated series.
· Rey Skywalker, the powerful Jedi hero who saved the galaxy from the re-emerged Sith in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
· Rose Tico, an expert Resistance mechanic who found herself on the front lines of the galactic civil war in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
· Tynnra Pamlo, a wise galactic senator who boldly opposed Emperor Palpatine alongside the Rebel Alliance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
