Marvel revealed today that they are releasing another Star Wars comic book series in the coming months. The new series will place the spotlight in Samuel L Jackson‘s Mace Windu & is called Star Wars: Jedi of the Republic — Mace Windu.
The new mini series will be written by Netflix’s Luke Cage writer Matt Owens, with art by Denys Cowan. The new mini series will take place during the Clone Wars.
“No matter how well trained for battle the Jedi are, having to actually put those skills to use is another thing entirely. The preferred tools of the Jedi are diplomacy, harmony, education, peace. Now they find themselves leading troops on battlefields across the galaxy. They’re going to have a lot of thoughts about this. Is this really the way to peace? Is this the position I should be taking? Is this really the path the Jedi should be walking down. Doubt is understandable, but what each individual does with that doubt is very telling of who they are and where they will end up.”
Owens added that the story will:
“feel like an organic part of the tapestry of the Star Wars universe.”
The mini series will birth 5 issues & will release this August.
