Per Marvel, Star Wars: Obi-Wan #2 is described as follows: "DARK SIDE OF THE MOON — Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan answer the distress call of an outpost on the edge of the galaxy. What's the secret behind the devastation wrought upon the terrifying moon base? Will whatever plunged it into darkness pull a Padawan off his enlightened path?"
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!
