Publisher's Summary

A manga adaptation of the hit 3D animated series Star Wars Rebels seen on Disney XD. The animated series launched with the first two episodes titled Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion and was followed by four seasons that aired from 2014 to 2018. The critically-acclaimed show featured fan-favorite Star Wars characters, such as Kanan Jarrus, who was the focus of his own novel and comic book series, and Chopper, a droid who made a brief appearance in the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Set during an era when the Galactic Empire is hunting down the last of the Jedi, a fledgling rebellion against the Empire begins to take form. Star Wars Rebels takes place in the area surrounding the planet Lothal, where the Galactic Empire battles against Ezra, a teenage con artist with latent Force abilities, Kanan, one of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order, and the rest of the ragtag rebels on board the starship Ghost.

The _Rebels_ manga adaptation is a fantastic way to revisit the story from the very beginning in an entirely new light. The unique Japanese art style brings intensity to scenes that were otherwise more or less tame, and the stunning character designs will make any anime enthusiast giddy. As if the art style wasn’t enough of a treat already, this first volume includes a bonus scene taken from the _Lords of the Sith_ novel! Considering the number of episodes in the hit show, there’s much to look forward to in future volumes of this manga series and I’m excited to see my favorite scenes get the anime treatment and hopefully receive more bonus scenes along the way.
