Darth Maul’s Getting a New Comic!
Darth Maul is one of my favorite canon Star Wars characters, and for all of the obvious reasons. I’m not about to pretend there’s something deeper. He just looks awesome, and that double-bladed lightsaber is a thing of beauty. So cool beans to hear that he’s getting a new comic from Marvel’s Star Wars line.
The comic will be written by Cullen Bunn, with art by Luke Ross. It will explore Maul’s life before The Phantom Menace and before they revealed themselves to the Jedi. This interview at USA Today doesn’t make it sound like any sort of revolutionary comic, but maybe it will be fun.
I still hold Dark Horse’s first Darth Maul solo comic as one of the coolest of all time. That presented us a Maul who was uncompromisingly badass. Hopefully this new comic can come close.
