Yoda is without question the most enigmatic character in all of Star Wars. It's so easy to give him that title because for what we know about him: he's "about" 1000 years old when he dies, he is a Jedi master, he talks with a bit of funny syntax... there's something we don't know about him: wait, how old exactly? How did he become a Jedi and come to know so much (yet so little) about the Sith? WHAT SPECIES IS HE (yes, we don't even know his species in canon)?
Well, a tiny bit of the curtain is being pulled back in the next arc of Marvel Comics' flagship Star Wars series, which will focus on the diminutive Jedi, thanks to Luke Skywalker reading a story about him in Obi-Wan Kenobi's journal. There's no illustrations of Yoda in the journal, so this doesn't throw off Luke's surprise and finding a tiny green alien; in fact, from just the preview alone, it's easy to see why Luke was expecting someone completely different when he went to find Yoda on Dagobah in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.
