Modern Yen Press: Star Wars: Lost Stars #1

Star Wars: Lost Stars is a 2015 novel by Claudia Gray and is considered one of the better Star Wars books published during the Disney era.  In 2017 an online manga adaptation of the novel was started by Japanese artist Yūsaku Komiyama.  Even though the adaptation has not been completed online for Japanese readers, Yen Press, a publisher of manga for U.S. readers, released Star Wars: Lost Stars #1 based on Yūsaku Komiyama's work.
