Marvel Preview Pages - Star Wars Kanan #1 Shows the Making of Star Wars Rebels' Hero
Marvel's Star Wars comics have been going gangbusters this year, selling huge numbers of copies and giving us an insight into that crucial time in Star Wars canon immediately after the Battle of Yavin. But next month, a new Marvel comic series will explore a completely different, yet equally important era, all through the eyes of one of the Star Wars' newest heroes, Kanan. The mysterious Jedi shot to fame recently as the leader of the rag-tag group of freedom fighters in Star Wars Rebels, but in the Season 1 finale, we got a glimpse of Kanan's troubled past. Kanan's years as a Jedi Padawan will be explored in unprecedented detail in the new limited comic series, Star Wars: Kanan The Last Padawan and now the first preview pages have emerged online courtesy of Newsarama.
As a Padwan, Kanan Jarrus successfully managed to survive Order 66, which saw Emperor Palpatine order the execution of every single member of the Jedi order. But before all that went down, Kanan got to cut his teeth in the field of battle during the Clone Wars, and it's this build up to Order 66 that The Last Padawan will explore as Kanan joins his Jedi Master, Depa Billaba on one of their last ever missions together.
Star Wars: Kanan The Last Padawan hits shelves on Wednesday April 1st.
