USA Today has revealed that Marvel will be doing a Darth Maul mini-series next year and it will kick off in February. The five issue mini-series will be written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross who illustrated The Force Awakens comic adaptation. The story will be set prior to The Phantom Menace.
The comic finds Maul an untested warrior under the training of Darth Sidious, who would later become the Galactic Emperor. Told to stand down from engaging with Jedi yet, Maul hunts down the worst of the worst in the cosmic underworld to vent his frustration.
After learning a young Jedi Padawan named Eldra Kaitis has fallen into the hands of a crime lord, Maul seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side.
