Marvel have announced a few more comics today at NYCC, including another addition to their collection of Star Wars stories. Called ‘Kanan: The Last Padawan’, this is about a character I’ve never heard of before and will thus assume nobody else has heard of either.
Written by Greg Weisman – who writes a Star Wars cartoon called ‘Star Wars Rebels’ which I’ve also not heard of and may not actually exist – and drawn by Pepe Larraz, the series focuses on this bloke as he lives life, being the last padawan around. I know what you’re thinking – if he’s the last padawan, who’s that other random person on the above cover, drawn by Mark Brooks? I have no idea. It’s not Princess Leia or Padme, which exhausts all possibilities for who the woman could be.
There’s also a floating head in the background, with a soul patch. What the hell’s going on there, then? Why isn’t this a Lando Calrissian comic? Many questions abound. I’ve been awake for about 24 hours straight and this is all very confusing right now.
