Launching in February 2012 the latest Star Wars comic from Dark Horse will go back to the beginning and tell the origins of the Jedi.  Described as the “coolest Star Wars comic ever,” Dawn of the Jedi will take place at the beginning of the Star Wars timeline and the Jedi Knights — before lightsabers.  John Ostrander is the writer for Dawn.

The announcement came at NYCC Retailers Breakfast.  Along with Dawn of the Jedi Dark Horse also announced Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: War from John Jackson Miller and Darth Vader: Ghost Prison, a five issue mini-series by Haden Blackman and Agustin Alessio (deluxe hardcover to follow).  In addition you can look forward to Star Wars: Knight Errant 3 and  Star Wars: Blood Ties (Tom Taylor and Chris Scalf).  Blood Ties headline reads “Boba Fett Is Dead.”

“Oh, I should also mention that if you think this is all of our announcements of new things coming in 2012, you have another think coming. We’ve got at least one more big announcement for next summer…Oh, yeah — and you haven’t even seen Agent of the Empire and Crimson Empire III yet!”

So stay tuned for the next big reveal at NYCC!

Knights of the Old Republic: War
Release Date: January 11, 2012
Writer: John Jackson Miller
Artist: Andrea Mutti
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
Letterer: Michael Heisler
Editor: Dave Marshall
Cover Artist: Benjamin Carré
Variant Cover Artist: Dave Wilkins

Announced this morning at Dark Horse’s retailer breakfast at NYCC, Zayne Carrick returns in Knights of the Old Republic: War. Once again John Jackson Miller will be writing for the series and the first issue will be out in January.  The story is set shortly after the events of Knights of the Republic #50.

Zayne’s peace and quiet following that series is short-lived. He’s not a Jedi and the Mandalorians are invading — and with his homeworld of Phaeda under threat, Zayne’s luck holds true. He gets drafted! 

Troubles ahead for our peace-loving hero — and surprises galore in this story, including the return of some familiar faces. With cover art by KOTOR favorite Benjamin Carré and a variant cover by Dave WilkinsKnights of the Old Republic—War “doesn’t just mark the return of one of the most popular eras in Star Wars video games and comics,” Dark Horse says, “it is an entry point for any reader interested in Star Wars!”

You can check out the details on John Jackson Miller’s website Faraway Press. Rebelscum.com also has a sample page from the first issue.
