Marvel Comics will detail how Kanan Jarrus was transformed from a serious, sober and somewhat skeptical Jedi Padawan to the smug, sarcastic and loyal gunslinger that’s helped the Star Wars Rebels show draw critical and popular acclaim in an ongoing comic series Star Wars: Kanan: The Last Padawan.
The first, five-issue arc, starting in April, is being written by Greg Weisman, who is among three executive producers of the show’s first season.
The book, like the three other series already announced — Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader and Star Wars: Princess Leia — is being edited by Jordan D. White who, in a previous interview with Coffee With Kenobi, had hinted that more Star Wars tales not set between Episodes IV and V were likely in the offing.
Art for the book, which was initially planned as a five-issue mini-series, is being drawn by Pepe Larraz, whose previous work includes illustrating issues of Deadpool Vs. X-Force, Thor and Inhuman, among other titles.
Matt Moore has been perpetrating journalism since 1985, reveling in Star Wars since 1977 and reading comics since 1974.
