At today’s “Cup O’ Joe” panel at New York Comic Con, Marvel Comics announced Obi-Wan and Anakin, a new five-issue Star Wars miniseries from writer Charles Soule and artist Marco Checchetto.
Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star...they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It’s been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young “chosen one”, but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point.
Obi-wan and Anakin #1 will open up a new chapter in the history of two of the Star Wars saga’s greatest Jedi. The issue goes on sale in January.
