Along with some announcements of upcoming Star Wars books, the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) also announced a new comic mini-series: Star Wars: Thrawn. As indicated in the title, the comic will be about Grand Admiral Thrawn, once relegated to Legend status in novel continuity, this bad dude was reintroduced to Star Wars fans in a big way, as a major antagonist on the Star Wars Rebels cartoon.

On the same day that Thrawn was announced to be in the then upcoming third season of Rebels, a new novel was announced starring Thrawn, written by the man who introduced the character to the Star Wars universe, Timothy Zahn. The comic series will be based on the novel, but will be written by Jody Houser, who also wrote the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comic adaptation. The art for the Thrawn mini will be by Luke Ross and Nolan Woodward, with lettering by Clayton Cowles. The first issue will have a cover by Francesco Mattina.
