Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi had mixed reviews from the fans. While some thought the movie was great, others called it a disgrace to the Star Wars franchise. One problem that everyone had with the movie was regarding the main antagonist of the movie, Supreme Leader Snoke.
The Last Jedi had Snoke as the villain for the major part of it but fans weren’t happy about it. With no backstory provided for the character, Rian Johnson made him into one of the most powerful force users.

The comic series will have four different issues, focusing on Supreme Leader Snoke, Rey, Kylo Ren and Rose Tico. But fans might only be interested in Snoke considering there’s little information about the character.
The comic will focus on Snoke’s relationship with Kylo Ren after he turned Kylo to the dark side. Check out the solicitation information and cover below:
