There are a lot of interesting details revealed. One that we thought was fascinating was the design concepts of The Baby's....Grogu's carrier. In the series, Grogu follows The Mandalorian on missions in his levitating carrier. Concept art shows one idea was to have it carried on The Mandalorian's back. The concept art of Grogu bundled up is also interesting just from the standpoint of this child is The Mandalorian's treasure he is trying to hide from the galaxy.
A two page combo most fans can enjoy is sizing up the Mandalorian. Readers can learn how the character was designed including the evolution of his helmet and the inclusion of that incinerator rifle that we have seen in action just a few times in the series so far.
