Dark Horse has release more details on the new upcoming comic series Dawn of the Jedi. The new project will involved John Ostrander and Jan Duursema, the same team that brought us Legacy and Legacy – War. Dawn of the Jedi #0 will go on sale February 1, 2012, and will be a guide to introduce readers to the era.
Here’s your first look at the Star Wars of 25,000 years ago—before there were lightsabers, when the ties to the Force were new, and before the Jedi spread out into the galaxy. It began with the mysterious pyramid ships—the Tho Yor—scattered to the eight corners of the galaxy, and ended with the establishment of an Order that would change the universe forever.
On the planet Tython, in the center of the galaxy, an order of warrior monks strives to maintain peace and to balance the mysterious power known as the Force. But a stranger is coming—one who will destroy both peace and balance, and open the galaxy to exploration and conquest. This is where it all begins!
The series will start out with the arc Force Storm. Dawn of the Jedi – Force Storm #1 will go on sale February 2012. Here is a first look at the new series.
