Marvel’s next Star Wars miniseries to feature Darth Maul. Written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross, it will be set before The Phantom Menace.
Rebels wraps up their second season tonight – and deals with some old Clone Wars business – with tonight’s one-hour ‘Twilight of the Apprentice’. IGN has an interview with Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Ashley Eckstein where they address the return (again) of Darth Maul, Darth Vader and Ahsoka. Eckstein also chats on StarWars.com.
Fans who don’t want to be spoiled on Twitter should probably mute the hashtag #StarWarsRebels.
Rebels begins at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on Disney XD. And yes, there will be a season three, probably beginning in the fall.
The second season of Rebels wraps up next Wednesday with the one-hour ‘Twilight of the Apprentice,’ bringing Darth Maul in, Darth Vader back, and all sorts of dark side shenanigans.
The show airs March 30 at 9:00 p.m. on Disney XD.
Comic review: Legacy #18 wraps up the conflict between the Imperial Knights and the Sith and Darth Wredd, with Ania Solo and her friends caught up in the middle. Jawajames gives it a big thumbs-up for staying true to the characters and giving us a big epic Star Wars battle.
And if you missed it last week, Jawajames also reviewed Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #4, the finale of this storyline — this would have been a fantastic episode arc of The Clone Wars, and it’s great to see it in comic form.
Comic review: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #3 brings the Jedi into the fray between Maul and Sidious, and gets a thumbs up from James.
Comic review: James says Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #2 is a must read.
Wednesday brings the release of Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #1, which wraps up the character’s arc from The Clone Wars. It’s our first fully canon comic, due to being based on scripts and designs originally conceived for the show. Also coming this week is the second trade collection of the Ania Solo Legacy, Outcasts of the Broken Ring.
With Maul: Lockdown on sale this week, I had a chance to have author Joe Schreiber answer a few questions about his new novel. Joe was gracious enough to discuss the character of Maul and other aspects of Lockdown, including his collaboration with Jim Luceno to have it connect with Darth Plagueis. Having previously brought the living dead to Star Wars in Death Troopers and its prequel, Red Harvest, Schreiber is no stranger to the darker side of the galaxy far, far away.
