This Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries, written by Halt and Catch Fire author Christopher Cantwell and drawn by Star Wars: The High Republic veteran Ario Anindito, will reach comic book retailers in May. Marvel and Lucasfilm have formally released a press Star Wars: Obi-Wan comic strip miniseries.

Ben Kenobi has a huge year ahead of him. Not only will Obi-Wan Kenobi receive his own live-action Disney plus special miniseries. Starring Ewan McGregor, he will be featured in a new 5 Marvel Comics saga called Star Wars: Obi-Wan.

Christopher Cantwell is the writer of the story. He stated that what he adores about Obi-Wan is that he is such a character of patience and fortitude. Even in the darkest of circumstances, he holds out hope and keeps the light burning. He would lose his Master, his closest friend, he’d been through a lot. 

Obi-Wan keeps moving forward. For decades, he has been waiting on Tatooine. He embodies the Buddhist notion of kshanti, or patience. In the middle of the darkness, he is able to grasp the glimmers of light. Every issue is themed around his ability to do so as a person, as written by the site. 

Obi-Wan Kenobi Series

Christopher Cantwell and Ario Aninidio’s new Obi-Wan series, set to premiere in May, will explore significant periods in Kenobi’s life.

Obi-Wan, a new comic book from Star Wars and Marvel Comics, will chronicle important moments from the renowned Jedi Master’s life in the Star Wars galaxy. Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the most popular and influential figures in the galaxy far, far away, was vital in restoring hope to the galaxy after his fallen student, Anakin Skywalker, became Darth Vader and plunged it into darkness. Kenobi will now reminisce on his life while in exile on Tatooine, including his early days as a young Padawan, in this new series, as released by site. 

Obi-Wan Kenobi is the archetypal sage. He’s the first instructor in the Star Wars universe. He might be obnoxious in his advice at times, but his knowledge comes from years of emotional and personal experience. 

In the purest meaning of the phrase, he’s also a veteran. He lived through some of the most trying moments in the Republic and the Jedi Order, and he came dangerously close to death a few times. 

He’s witnessed some horrific events personally. However, he possesses a quality that permits him to continue to shine in the dark. He holds within him the spark of hope. Throughout his life, Obi-Wan never gave up. He didn’t give up even after that. That’s the commitment to the cause.
