Marvel to Introduce Star Wars: Darth Maul


Star Wars: Darth Maul is coming! The story of Darth Maul has been told throughout several mediums. From the Phantom Menace to The Clone Wars, to Dark Horse Comics, and recently with Star Wars Rebels. But now, Maul is getting his own Marvel Star Wars treatment…

USA Today has just revealed that Darth Maul will be officially getting his own Marvel Star Wars run that will debut in February of 2017. The Darth Maul comic will be written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross and will be a five-issue Marvel Comics miniseries titled — Star Wars: Darth Maul.

According to USA Today, who got the exclusive scoop, the comic will take Star Wars fans back to Maul’s younger days, before The Phantom Menace. As far as what we can expect to see from Maul, USA Today notes that lots of rage from the apprentice to Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine will be on display and the reason behind his need to take revenge against the Jedi, as well as his problems with taking orders.

"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."

That definitely sounds like something I would want to read, and it certainly speaks to Maul’s desire to have his own brother as an apprentice during The Clone Wars, as well as pulling Ezra Bridger to the Dark Side of the Force and making him his apprentice, in Star Wars Rebels.
