We learned two big things from the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at SDCC: There’s going to be a prequel comic about Kylo and the Knights of Ren, and Dooku: Jedi Lost is indeed coming out in hardcover.
Charles Soule’s four-issue The Rise of Kylo Ren is “the one story everyone’s dying to see, about Kylo and the Knights of Ren? That’s this.” It will be out in December.
We did see some glimmers of audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost coming to print earlier, but now it’s official, and it’s coming in October. It will be the actual script:
Two other The Rise of Skywalker tie-in comics – IDW’s post-The Last Jedi Chewbacca storyline and Marvel’s Allegiance – were announced earlier. We also learned that Force Collector will have some sort of connection to Galaxy’s Edge and Batuu, and Pablo’s latest Visual Guide will feature a Knight of Ren on the cover.
Jedi-Bibliothek was first to provide nice, high res versions of the book covers revealed at the panel. Here are the two most relevant to our interests:
Here’s the StarWars.com writeup with more high-res reveal images, but big thanks to @BlueJaigEyes, @TheSWU and @FGGoingRogue for live-tweeting!
