Follow Up to Leia in an X-Wing

When Dark Horse first announced Brian Wood’s upcoming Dark Horse comic – titled simply Star Wars – back in July, my favorite part of the news was the revelation that Leia would be an X-Wing pilot, right there alongside Luke and Wedge. Recently Newsarama shared the solicitation and cover for issue #2, which again features Leia in a squadron role, and new-look fighter pilot uniform as a bonus. Maybe we’ll get to see Shea or Victoria cosplay X-Wing Leia at the next Celebration!
