Star Wars is Giving Luke Skywalker a New Yellow Lightsaber

Luke Skywalker may have been killed off in the Skywalker Saga but he is still alive and well in the comic books. Interestingly, the next issue of the Star Wars comic book will be giving Luke a completely new and exciting weapon: a yellow lightsaber.

The latest issue of the ongoing Star Wars comics will be written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Jesus Saiz. Interestingly, the cover art by R.B. Silva actually shows Luke wielding a lightsaber with a yellow blade similar to Rey's new weapon in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Check it out below.
