One of the most legendary of Star Wars’ Jedi, Yoda is a mainstay through much of the saga. Now he’s set to get an era-spanning new title from Marvel.
Not-so quiet reflection
While the original trilogy featured an older Yoda, just as many (if not more) fans now know him from his days as an active Jedi. That’s thanks to the prequel films, as well as the multiple animated series’ that’ve hit TV.
So in crafting a solo “Yoda” comic book, which do you go with? Do you create something about his adventures in the Jedi Order, or follow him as he settles into his exile, watching Imperial domination unfold from afar? Well, if you’re Marvel Comics, you do both of course… and then some.
The publisher’s newest announced Star Wars book will delve into Yoda’s life and times. If you know anything about him, then you know that could fill volumes, and that’s just what Marvel is planning. The series will be broken up into a total of three arcs, each one following Yoda in a specific time in his life, and each will feature a different creative team.
New York Times bestselling author Cavan Scott and artist Nico Leon will kick things off with a story set during the Star Wars: The High Republic era. They’ll be followed by writers Jody Houser and Marc Guggenheim and artists Luke Ross and Alessandro Miracolo with stories set just before the Prequel Trilogy and near the end of the Clone Wars. Scott and Leon will return to complete the saga in the final issue. Yoda’s first-ever solo comic series, STAR WARS: YODA will reveal unexplored aspects of the Jedi Master’s storied history and shed new light on the mystery that surrounded the iconic character since his debut.Marvel Comics press release
