In addition to Marvel's Star Wars comic line, IDW  publishes a line for younger audiences called Star Wars Adventures. Earlier this year Disney announced a new initiative called Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, which featured cartoon shorts starring the women of Star Wars. The initiative was not only about the cartoon though, it also included other products such as apparel, toys, and books. Well, we can add another category as 2018 will not only bring more cartoon shorts, but also new comics in the Star Wars Adventures line. Star Wars Adventures: Forces of Destiny will be a 5-issue weekly series launching January 2018, and not only will the women of Star Wars again be the focus, but many of the creators involved are also women.

Here's the press release:

Just as exciting are the talented creators who will be bringing these beloved characters’ stories to life, including an impressive roster of female writers from across the galaxy: Delilah S. Dawson, Elsa Charretier, Beth Revis, Jody Houser, and Devin Grayson.

Art and covers will be provided by Elsa Charretier, Arianna Florean, Eva Widermann, Valentina Pinto, and Nicoletta Baldari.
