It has been two years since Marvel Comics has been publishing new Star Wars comics that fall in line with the new canon of Star Wars. For those unaware, after the acquisition of the Star Wars license by Disney, all stories of the series aside from the initial 6 films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars were considered non-canon. Since then, new stories in terms of books, shows, and movies have been produced to be the official continuations. Among these is an animated series called Star Wars Rebels, which is set 5 years before the events of the original film. The main character is a surviving Jedi by the name of Kanan Jarrus. The show follows him, and a group of five other rebels, fighting back as best they can against the empire. However, I am not here to discuss the show.
As of late last year, I was pleased to pick up some of the issues of Marvel’s new Star Wars comics. Among these, was the mini-series, Star Wars Kanan. This mini-series is set during the end of the Clone Wars. We see the titular character during his younger days, showing how he became the man we see in Rebels. Today, I will explain a little about this series.Read moreLet’s Talk Star Wars Comics: Kanan
