NYCC: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi by Ostrander and DuursemaDark Horse takes readers back to the beginning of the Jedi at New York Comic Con!




October 14, New York, NY— Direct from New York Comic Con, Dark Horse Comics announces its most exciting Star Wars title for 2012! A brand-new series that establishes the beginnings of the Jedi!

Series creators John Ostrander and Jan Duursema have gone from the future of Star Wars (Legacy) to the beginnings of that galaxy far, far away to reveal the mythic age of the Jedi's origin.  This is the Star Wars era of legend!  Launching with a #0 issue, which will serve as the official guide for readers -Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi is the perfect jumping on point for any fan of Star Wars!

Here's your first look at the Star Wars of 25,000 years ago—before there were lightsabers, when the ties to the Force were new, and before the Jedi spread out into the galaxy.  It began with the mysterious pyramid ships—the Tho Yor—scattered to the eight corners of the galaxy, and ended with the establishment of an Order that would change the universe forever.

On the planet Tython, in the center of the galaxy, an order of warrior monks strives to maintain peace and to balance the mysterious power known as the Force. But a stranger is coming—one who will destroy both peace and balance, and open the galaxy to exploration and conquest. This is where it all begins!

Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi #0 is on sale 1 February 2012

Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi—Force Storm #1 is on sale 15 February 2012

I'm not very interested in that time period, but I really love that creative team. Damnit.

Well, I didn't think they could make Legacy work but they did... so I guess I will try it.

Honestly, I'd love to read a Stormtrooper book by Ennis. He did a one-off issue a while back and it was surprisingly deep.

I wish Ostrander had more time with Legacy. It was such a good book.

I am hesitantly excited about this. Legacy started out great but descended into dumbness about half-way through it. The six-issue miniseries that wrapped it up helped a little, but even it was kind of all over the place.

That being said, Ostrander is generally a good writer and I love the ancient end of Star Wars history.
