StarWars.com shares a preview of Star Wars: Princess Leia #1, a 5-issue comic series set to debut in March 2015. Written by Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and illustrated by Terry Dodson (Avengers & X-Men: Axis, Uncanny X-Men), Leia’s story continues after the award ceremony towards the end of Episode IV: A New Hope. The canon story takes a look at the repercussions of losing her home planet, Alderaan.
When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire as a Rebel spy, she never betrayed her convictions, even in the face of the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire—the destruction of the Death Star. But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains…what is a princess without a world?
