Marvel Comics Announced ‘Obi-Wan & Anakin” Comic Book

Marvel has dominated comic sales for years, coming out even on top of the ever popular DC Comics.  With this being known, it is a huge testament to note that the recent Star Wars books have been the best selling comics they have released in years.  They so outperform everything else that even the more obscure books hit high on the top ten.  This comes from the intersection of Star Wars fandom, which brings committed readers to the books who would not normally subscribe to comics, as well as the A-list creators, the upcoming Force Awakens film, and the marketing focus on their release.  It is not surprise, then, that Marvel would be releasing yet another book: Obi-Wan and Anakin.

The book is meant to do what Clone Wars does between Episode II and III, except filling in the ten years between Episode I and II.  This is important because the Expanded Universe that was done with comics and books in the past was declared non-canon by Disney in anticipation of these comics and the upcoming J.J. Abrahms film.

We don’t know a lot about the details, but that Charles Soule will be writing with art by Marco Checchetto, and will start in January.
