Marvel Announces Darth Maul Comic
Marvel revealed the news through USA Today with details including the Star Wars Darth Maul comic will be written by Cullen Bunn with art by Luke Ross.
The five-issue Marvel Comics miniseries is titled Star Wars: Darth Maul and takes a look at Darth Maul's younger days before his appearance in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. The article notes "on tap for the antagonistic warrior: lots of rage, a need to take revenge against the Jedi, and problems taking orders.."
The description reads: 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.
Star Wars: Darth Maul is due out February 2017.
