Kanan: The Last Padawan #1 is out today from Marvel.

Kanan – The Last Padawan #1

Writer: Greg Weisman
Artist: Pepe Larraz
Cover Artist: Mark Brooks
Variant Covers: Young Variant Cover (Skottie Young), Star Wars Rebels Television Show Variant Cover, Blank Cover

Kanan Jarrus–in STAR WARS REBELS, he’s a cocky, sarcastic renegade fighting against the Galactic Empire alongside the rag-tag crew of the Ghost…but years before, at the height of the Clone Wars, he was known as Caleb Dume, Jedi Padawan under the instruction of Jedi Master Depa Billaba. Neither master nor apprentice ever suspected that the Clone Troopers they commanded would turn on them upon the issuing of Order 66—the order to execute all Jedi. How did Caleb Dume survive? How did he learn to survive on his own? And how did he become the man we know as Kanan Jarrus? Writer Greg Weisman (writer/executive producer on STAR WARS REBELS, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN) and artist Pepe Larraz (DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE, THOR, INHUMAN) bring us a tale bridging the years between the Clone Wars and Rebels!

Details: 32 pages, Rated T, $3.99

‘King Tiger #1′ Announced

'King Tiger #1'Randy Stradley and Doug Wheatley have been working on the King Tiger series here and there as they’ve piggybacked the story into other comics, however, now it will be getting it’s own, standalone line starting with King Tiger #1.

Blood, death, and fire—the darkest kind of magic. A monstrous secret from King Tiger’s past has found the mystic warrior, but can Tiger’s skills and sorcery triumph against an unthinkable supernatural obscenity linked to his own destiny? If the Tiger falls, the Dragon with rise!

King Tiger #1 will be out in August and Nerdist did a nice interview with Randy Stradley you can check out here.

N: So, with that in mind, what can readers look forward to from this series?

RS: Well, without giving too much away, we’ll learn a little bit about the kind of man Tiger used to be compared to who he is now. And Tiger’s past catches up with him in a really huge and horrible way—death and destruction on a massive scale. There’s lots of kung fu, sword fighting, and even gun play, all with a magical twist. But at its heart, this is really a love story. And Doug Wheatley is making every panel of it awesome.
