Star Wars.com and Marvel Comics have announced a new Star Wars: Visions comic series!
Inspired by the acclaimed anthology series of the same name, this comic series will kick off this November with Star Wars: Visions – Peach Momoko #1. Created by comic superstar Peach Momoko, the comic “picks up centuries after the death of a major Sith Lord, with a cult called Ankok having grown around the notorious dark side servant. Tata, leader of the cult, believes she is the rightful successor to this Sith Lord. Meanwhile, a girl named Kako and her loyal droid Gel are fated to confront this new evil.”
Momoko spoke about her upcoming work, which she hopes will give her the chance to make her own statement about the dark side. “I really enjoy thinking about how to tell my own version of Star Wars, while keeping in mind the concepts of the original universe.”
Momoko elaborated, “I wanted to tell a story about a cult. And I felt within the Star Wars universe, the dark side was something that ties to when a human, or something living, loses itself and then wants to rely on believing something in order to have hope to live,” Momoko says. “I believe falling to the dark side is nothing to be ashamed of. It could save you. Sometimes the dark side can help defeat your trauma and fear. In the story, Ankok’s belief is that the time when light defeats darkness has ended. It is the time to accept the darkness. And Tata is only using the dark side to help those who need a ‘dark light.’”
