It was the last wish of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn that Obi-Wan Kenobi accept Anakin Skywalker as his Padawan learner. In the decade between the events of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Obi-Wan took Anakin under his wing and attempted to teach him the ways of the Force.
Next month, Marvel Comics is diving into a rarely explored era of Star Wars history to follow a previously untold adventure of Obi-Wan and Anakin. While Anakin was a young man in Attack of the Clones, he’s still a child in the new Obi-Wan and Anakin miniseries. When the story picks up, it’s been a few years since they were brought together. And now their relationship will be put to the test on a remote ice planet as the cracks in their bond start coming to the surface.
Prolific comic scribe Charles Soule (Star Wars: Lando) is writing Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin, with artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire). Marvel has released the first four pages from the first issue of Obi-Wan and Anakin, which you can see in our gallery below. Checchetto’s cover is also included, alongside variants by Siya Oum, Skotttie Young, and Kevin Nowlan. There’s even a Jake Lloyd young Anakin action figure variant cover by John Tyler Christopher.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin #1 will be released on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 in comic book stores everywhere.
