WRITER ETHAN SACKS TELLS STARWARS.COM ABOUT SETTING HIS STORY AT BLACK SPIRE OUTPOST IN A CROSSOVER MINISERIES BASED ON THE NEW STAR WARS-THEMED LAND COMING TO WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT AND DISNEYLAND RESORT.
Pirates, smugglers, merchants, and wanderers from across the galaxy have traveled to make their score or sell their wares at the infamous black market located at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.
In April, journey to this locale in the Outer Rim in the new Marvel Star Wars comic series Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which ties into the new lands opening at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort later this year.
Readers of the five-issue miniseries will be the first to meet the infamous Dok-Ondar, the Ithorian collector of rare antiquities, and find out what happens when the First Order reaches the edge of wild space. The key to saving this lawless outpost might just involve a job pulled long ago by none other than Han Solo and his cohort Chewbacca.

The series is written by Ethan Sacks, who recently entered the Star Wars comics galaxy with a tale of Jedi Master, Mace Windu, in the Star Wars: Age of Republic series. The series will be illustrated by Will Sliney, the artist behind the Beckett one-shot who also penciled the comic adaptation for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Cover art will be created by Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm artists.
