StarWars.com has announced that Supreme Leader Snoke, Kylo Ren, Rey, and Rose Tico will take center stage in Marvel Comics’ new miniseries, Age of Resistance. So if you’re not reading the Star Wars comic books, now might be a good time to start. Especially if you’re like me and you want to know more about the mysterious Snoke.
Age of Resistance follows the popular Age of Republic and Age of Rebellion miniseries. Each issue will highlight icons of the Resistance and the First Order. The series is written by Tom Taylor with art by Ramon Rosanas and Leonard Kirk with the first issue hitting stores in July.
While there’s not a lot of Snoke’s backstory in Star Wars: Age of Resistance – Supreme Leader Snoke #1, we do get to see the character’s early efforts at seducing Ben Solo to the dark side. I’m okay with that. It’s more than we got in The Last Jedi before he was unceremoniously sliced in half. At this point though, for a character who is seemingly so important who is still such a mystery, I’ll take what I can get.
Here’s the official synopsis of the Snoke-centric issue:
Supreme Leader Snoke’s brutal training of Kylo Ren begins. Will the sadistic Snoke break his tormented protégé? Or has he underestimated the son of Han and Leia?
