USA Today has revealed that Marvel will be doing a Darth Maul mini-series next year and it will kick off in February. The five issue mini-series will be written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross who illustrated The Force Awakens comic adaptation. The story will be set prior to The Phantom Menace.

The comic finds Maul an untested warrior under the training of Darth Sidious, who would later become the Galactic Emperor. Told to stand down from engaging with Jedi yet, Maul hunts down the worst of the worst in the cosmic underworld to vent his frustration.

After learning a young Jedi Padawan named Eldra Kaitis has fallen into the hands of a crime lord, Maul seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side.

One of the best things I can say about the Star Wars license moving to Marvel is some of the truly amazing artwork we’ve seen with the cover art. One artist in particular who really stands out is Gabriele Dell’Otto. Born in 1973, this 42 year old Italian artist has a remarkable skill with paints that makes comic covers look like fine art. And that’s because they are. Both an author and an illustrator, Dell’Otto has done covers for Marvel, DC, IPP, Egmont Ehapa and MG Publishing as well as scientific illustrations and historical calendars. But the thing that caught my eye was the variant covers he did for Marvel’s Princess Leia mini-series. They’re absolutely gorgeous. So today we’re spotlighting the Star Wars artwork of Gabriele Dell’Otto. Enjoy!

‘Maul: Lockdown’ Paperback Release

Tags: , ,

maul-lockdown-legendsMaul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber is out today in mass market paperback.

Set before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, this new novel is a thrilling follow-up to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis.

It’s kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.

Sith lords Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious are determined to possess the prize. And one of the power-hungry duo has his own treacherous plans for it. But first, their fearsome apprentice must take on a bloodthirsty prison warden, a cannibal gang, cutthroat crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and an unspeakable alien horror. No one else could brave such a gauntlet of death and live. But no one else is the dreaded dark-side disciple known as Darth Maul.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. For those looking for John Jackson Miller interviews, you’re in luck, as they’re are plenty (though more to come).

Coffee with Kenobi: Book Chat with John Jackson Miller covers his new Star Wars novel A New Dawn which stars two of the main characters from the upcoming television series Star Wars Rebels. They cover the outreach of the book, going after old and new fans alike, the timing of the project, where Kanan and Hera are at this point in their lives, and more. As always, the hosts put together a great interview with excellent questions and good production quality.

Disney Vault Talk: The Saludos Amigos episode covers a Disney movie I’ve never seen. It’s a collection of shorts woven with some documentary footage to create a highlight piece for South America during a time when the US was vying for allies in WWII. As usual, Teresa shares some fun facts and trivia that sheds new light on the films and the company that made them. Together, Steve and Teresa give a nice feel for what the film is like and what it accomplished. For someone like me who isn’t very well versed in the Disneyverse, they do a great job of offering insight and provoking interest. If you like Disney or are just interested in the subject, be sure to give this one a try.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #10 features special guest Steve Glosson, which means you’re in for a treat. They start out with listener feedback and a very nice discussion on cosplay and fandom. They get into their recommended episode picks for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Steve talks about how his Star Wars fandom began, what he feels is the most underrated thing in Star Wars (Hayden Christensen), they cover some Star Wars Episode VII news, and the character discussion this month is Chewbacca which leads to lots of fun conversation. A great episode all around.
