"My Hero Academia" Manga Author's "Star Wars" Tribute Published

Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi will be opening in Japan as well as the US on December 15th

Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi will be opening in Japan as well as the US on December 15th. This week's issue of Shonen Jump feels the Force with a bonus from an artist named Kōhei Horikoshi. He's an artist who dabbled in action sci-fi himself with 2012's short-lived manga Barrage. You might know him better for his follow-up, a series called My Hero Academia!

 

Horikoshi comments that he feels honored to be involved with Star Wars in this way. He looks forward to seeing more of the relationship between Luke and Rey, as well as the meaning of the title. 

 

He also mentions that he loves Kylo Ren and even geeks out about seeing the AT-M6 mech in action.
