Captain Phasma Comic Reveals How She Survived Starkiller Base

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is believed to pick up right where The Force Awakens left off, with Rey extending a lightsaber to Luke Skywalker. One story beat that we likely won't learn in the film is how Captain Phasma escaped Starkiller Base. As you may remember, she was apparently thrown into a trash compactor by Finn and Han Solo.

While this comic probably concludes with a sequence of her rocketing away in a ship with Starkiller base exploding behind it, we should learn more about who Captain Phasma is over the four-issue arc. Star Wars: Captain Phasma is a part of Lucasfilm's build up to December's release of The Last Jedi, and is penned by writer Kelly Thompson with art by Marco Checchetto. The first issue hits comic shops and digital stores in September.
