Obi-Wan Kenobi #1

Writer: Christopher Cantwell, Artist: Ario Anindito, Cover Artists: Phil Noto, E.M. Gist (variant cover), Peach Momoko (variant cover)

FAST APPROACHES THE ULTIMATE DESTINY OF ONE OF THE JEDI’S MOST RENOWNED MASTERS! As he spends his final days in the remote deserts of Tatooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi takes time to reflect on – and record – key moments of a heroic life long-lived. Writing in old leather-bound journals from his hermit’s hut, Obi-Wan remembers his days as a young Jedi Initiate, his trials as a Padawan, the crucible of Jedi Knighthood and the Clone Wars, and some of the earliest challenges he faced as a true Master of the Force! In this tale, Obi-Wan considers a watershed Youngling adventure he narrowly survived on Coruscant when he was but eight years of age…This is just the beginning of his Jedi journey!

Details: Rated T, $3.99

Cover Artists: Paolo Rivera, Rahzzah (variant cover), Iain McCaig (concept design variant), Leinil Francis Yu (heroes variant), Mike McKone (puzzle piece variant)

THE EARLY DAYS OF OBI-WAN KENOBI, JEDI KNIGHT! Following the wishes of his master, OBI-WAN has taken on ANAKIN SKYWALKER as an apprentice. Will his mission alongside his young Padawan bring them closer together, or sow the seeds that will drive them apart? And who else is after the ancient holocron that they seek?

Han Solo – Imperial Cadet #3 (of 5)

Writer: Robbie Thompson

Cover Artist: David Nakayama, Todd Nauck (variant cover)

CASINO ROYALE! HAN SOLO gets demoted for insubordination – dragging his fellow cadets down with him. They go from flying TIE fighters to flying a giant cargo ship. Han’s expert flying cuts their cargo ship’s flight time in half, allowing them to stop at a casino for some hard-earned R&R. But Han’s fellow cadets quickly learn this little “vacation” was NOT authorized by the Empire and, thanks to Han, they’re all considered AWOL!

Details: 32 Pages, Rated T, $3.99

Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Obi-Wan Kenobi

There are a lot of toymakers jumping into the 6-inch scale Star Wars market, which means Hasbro has some serious competition. Unlike previous decades, they are no longer uncontested in the realm of Star Wars action figures. Of those stepping into the ring is S.H. Figuarts, a high quality action figure line made by Bandai. They’ve made a few figures so far, but the one that stole my eye was their Obi-Wan Kenobi. Quite simply, this is a gorgeous figure and an example of what toys can be when done right.

The Art of Obi-Wan Kenobi

For our final art gallery highlight for John Jackson Miller’s Kenobi, we are featuring the star of the book, Obi-Wan. From his beginnings as a young Jedi, to his exile on Tatooine, we present the art of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The package is delivered.

I hope you can read my thoughts, Master Qui-Gon: I haven’t heard your voice since that day on Polis Massa, when Master Yoda told me I could commune with you through the Force. You’ll remember that we decided I should take Anakin’s son to his relatives for safekeeping. That mission is now accomplished.

If feels so strange, behing here, at this place and in this circumstance. Years ago, we removed one child from Tatooine, thinking him to be the galaxy’s greatest hope. Now I have returned one–with the same goal in mind. I hope it goes better this time. Because the path to this moment has been filled with pain. For the whole galaxy, for my friends–and for me.

I still can’t believe the Jedi Order is gone–and the Repbulic, corrupted and in the hands of Palaptine. And Anakin, corrupted as well. The holovids I saw of him slaughtering the Jedi younglings in the Temple still haunt my dreams…and shatter my heart into pieces, over and over again.

But after the horror of children’s deaths, a child may bring hope, as well. It’s as I said: the delivery is made. I’m standing on a ridge with my riding beast–a Tatooine eopie–looking back at the Lars homestead. Owen and Beru Lars are outside, holding the child. The last chapter is finished: a new one has begun. Kenobi, prologue

The second book announced is tentatively titled “KENOBI” and features everyone’s favorite Jedi Master after Episode 3, and will be by John Jackson Miller. Cue Synlah fainting.



Christie Golden’s Sword of the Jedi trilogy will feature Jagged Fel, Tahiri, Ben Skywalker, and Allana.

Paul S. Kemp’s still untitled duology “will f’ing blow your minds!”

The Clone Wars Season 4 might be over, but we’ve got a very special interview to help ease the waiting for Season 5. We interviewed James Arnold Taylor, the voice actor for Obi-Wan Kenobi. James was nice enough to do an audio interview, so we turned it into a cool little video. Not only does James answer our questions, he does some other awesome voices too!

You can also check out the trailer for James’ “Talking to Myself” one man show.

Sideshow Collectibles is kicking off a new line of Star Wars statues labeled Star Wars Mythos:

“This line of collectibles will be populated by characters from new and existing story lines. We will bring history, unique details and personal choices to each in order to elaborate on who they are. Through the design and sculpt process our goal is to delve deeper into these established characters and offer our own interpretations of what they have done outside of the Star Wars canon.”

They have a great site setup that shows some beautiful new artwork relating to each piece, cool little back stories, and the sneak peaks of the statues themselves. It’s suffice to say that these statues look AWESOME! Take a look below at some of the wonderful images and be sure to visit the site to real all the cool back stories written from different perspectives for each piece.
