Marvel’s Thrawn, a six-issue adaptation of Timothy Zahn’s novel of the same name, kicks off on February 7, 2018, and will document the iconic Imperial’s rise in the Empire — before he was a legend. Written by Jody Houser (Marvel’s Rogue One adaptation) and illustrated by Luke Ross (Star Wars: Darth Maul, Marvel’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens adaptation), the series will also include never-before-revealed scenes featuring the infamous master strategist. StarWars.com is excited to offer an exclusive first look at the cover and pages from Thrawn #1, in which Thrawn, or Mitth’raw’nuruodo, makes his presence known to the Empire.
