How did Captain Phasma survive the destruction of Starkiller Base? Upcoming Star Wars comic explains all

Want to know what happened in a galaxy far, far away between the events of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi? Especially if you're a fan of a certain chrome-domed Stormtrooper? You'll want to head to your local comic shop in September to pick up a copy of Star Wars: Captain Phasma.

The four-part mini-series will help bridge the gaps between Star Wars 7 and 8, focusing on just how the crap a Stormtrooper many assumed was stuck in a trash compactor escaped the destruction of Starkiller Base. There will likely be some hints as to other goings-on in the ranks of the Resistance and First Order as well, so I wouldn't go thinking this comic will just be about Phasma, despite the title.

Star Wars: Captain Phasma is co-written by Kelly Thompson (Star Wars Annual) and Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire), with art from Paul Renaud (X-Force).
