Marvel Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars: Kanan comic series, will focus on Kanan Jarrus and his transformation from serious and sober Jedi Padawan to smug, sarcastic gunslinger rebelling against the Galactic Empire.
Marvel Comics are planning on providing insight into Kanan Jarris transformation from serious, sober and somewhat skeptical Jedi Padawan, to smug, loyal gunslinger in an ongoing comic series Star Wars – Kanan: The Last Padawan. This comes as no surprise as the character has been on of the fundamental elements that have facilitated critical and popular acclaim in the Star Wars Rebels TV show.
Greg Weisman, who is one of the executive producers of the show’s first season, will pen the first, five-issue arc, which will start in April.
Jordan D. White will edit the comic series, as well as with the other three series already announced – Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader and Star Wars: Princess Leia. Jordan has already hinted that more Star Wars tales that are not set between Episodes IV and V are likely in the offing.
Pepe Larraz – who has worked issues of Deadpool Vs. X-Force, Thor and Inhuman – will be providing his artistic talents illustrating the book, which is initially planned as a five-issue mini-series.
What do you reckon folks? Do you thing Marvel should keep going comics that take place in the canonical Star Wars Universe? Do you want to see more comics that cover lesser-known characters and their development? Sound off in the comments section below.
