Celebrating the Legacy of Leia

We pay tribute to the woman behind her legend, Carrie Fisher.

In honor of her influential performance as Princess Leia Organa, Marvel Unlimited remembers the woman who brought her to life on the big screen—the one and only Carrie Fisher. Read a handful of our favorite comics starring the Rebel Alliance’s general, (and Alderaan’s princess), and see how she inspired unity across a galaxy while toppling the Empire!
