Default Star Wars: Obi-Wan And Anakin

http://comicbook.com/2015/10/10/star...ounced/#Image1

Quote:
At today’s “Cup O’ Joe” panel at New York Comic Con, Marvel Comics announced Obi-Wan and Anakin, a new five-issue Star Wars miniseries from writer Charles Soule and artist Marco Checchetto.

Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star...they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It’s been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young “chosen one”, but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point.

Obi-wan and Anakin #1 will open up a new chapter in the history of two of the Star Wars saga’s greatest Jedi. The issue goes on sale in January.

I am digging the rotating mini-series. This is the prefect topic imo.

Plus, accurate lightsabers.

Some info:
Quote:
He and Obi-Wan are in a spaceship heading back to a diplomatic fleet when they get a distress call from a remote deserted planet. When they land, the Jedi find a mountainous place with deep valleys containing huge roiling clouds of green mist that cover the surface. “It’s a place that’s designed to have many, many secrets,” Soule says, “and it does.”

While they go on their mission, it’s interspersed with flashbacks showing how the title's main stars reached a personal crisis point between them.
Quote:
Soule feels the way he writes Anakin and Obi-Wan is going to look different than how they were on the Clone Wars cartoon series or in the prequel adventures. He gave Checchetto a direction to have influences including Lone Wolf and Cub and Akira Kurosawa movies such as Seven Samurai.

“Ultimately that’s kind of like what Jedi were: warrior monks wandering the galaxy doing awesome things,” Soule says. The series is “getting back to the heart of what I think Jedi can be, when they’re not weighed down by war and the Sith attacking them.”

Anakin is at an age where he’s starting to ask questions about the world and superiors around him, according to Soule, yet he also is a very cool, tough kid with a lot of his fellow peers at the Jedi Temple wondering why he’s treated like he's special.
Quote:
“This is the point where Obi-Wan is realizing, ‘Wow, am I really even equipped to do this? Maybe I shouldn’t have been so cavalier about taking on this task,’ ” Soule says. “It’s important to him, he wants to do it right and he’s very fond of Anakin, but it’s definitely a tough job.

“These people went into this situation with stars in their eyes, and the reality of it is beginning to sink in.”

Anakin had a rebellious streak going back to his days on Tatooine, and Soule seeds pieces of the man he will become one day, including having the young Jedi looking at the Jedi Order with a critical eye, he says. “He grew up as a slave so he knows there’s a lot of injustice in the galaxy that isn’t necessarily being addressed and he’s wondering if there might be other ways.”
Quote:
His mother Shmi is still alive at this point and a slave back on Tatooine, and that’s a tough burden for Anakin. “It’s a lot of weight to put on a child,” says Soule, adding that “there is probably a pretty cool story to be told” about the burgeoning friendship between Anakin and Senator Palpatine, the manipulative man who one day becomes the evil Emperor and turns the youngster against the Jedi.

MASTER AND APPRENTICE STRIKE IN OBI-WAN & ANAKIN #1 – EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW

Quote:
Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker went from best friends to bitter enemies — but there’s much we haven’t seen of their happier times. That’s about to change.

Marvel’s Obi-Wan & Anakin, a five-issue miniseries from Marvel by writer Charles Soule and artist Marco Checchetto, is coming January 2016. The series is set between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones and finally pulls back the curtain on a previously unexplored era, when they were just Master and apprentice. In an in-depth interview with StarWars.com, Soule discussed his approach to the series and its iconic characters — and now you can get a first look at interior art below from issue #1 below.

Looking damn good so far. So nice to this era of the PT and of their relationship explored in the new canon.
