IGN reports that Marvel has announced a brand new five-issue Star Wars comic series that will focus on Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Star Wars: Obi-Wan & Anakin will focus on the period of time between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. It will follow Obi-Wan as he tries to train his Padawan. The two are sent on a “dangerous new mission” on a remote world. The first issue arrives in January 2016.

It features writer Charles Soule (Star Wars: Lando) and artist Marco Checchetto (Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Shattered Empire). This is the first comic to look at the timeline before the Clone Wars. Dark Horse’s Star Wars: Republic was also set in this era, but is no longer in continuity. It falls under the “Legends” banner.
