Marvel Will Revisit the Star Wars Prequel Era With Age of Republic Event

In December, Marvel will kick off a new Star Wars event: Star Wars: Age of Republic. The storyline will see writer Jody Houser spin stories surrounding four of the most memorable heroes and four of the most memorable villains from the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, starting off with Star Wars: Age of Republic – Darth Maul #1 (with art by Luke Ross) and Star Wars: Age of Republic – Qui Gon #1 (with art by Cory Smith).

The December releases will be followed by more one-shots in January, February and March, starring Obi-Wan, Jango Fett, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, Padme Amidala and General Greivous, along with an Age of Republic special. Additionally, Star Wars: Age of Republic will be followed by Age of Rebellion and Age of Resistance, which will focus on characters from the Original Trilogy and Sequel Trilogy, respectively.

December’s Age of Republic – Darth Maul #1 is set to revolve around the titular character’s early days as a Sith Lord, dealing with the overwhelming desire to destroy the Jedi as he grows skeptical of his master’s wishes. Meanwhile, Age of Republic – Qui-Gon #1, also due out in December, will not only provide some insight into the other exploits of Obi-Wan’s deceased master, but will also seemingly address Qui-Gon’s flirtations with the Dark Side of the Force, as well as his alleged status as a Gray Jedi.

Darth Maul previously starred in his own Marvel comic, but this will mark Qui-Gon Jinn’s very first time as a titular character under the Marvel banner.

The full solicitation information and covers for Star Wars: Age of Republic – Darth Maul #1 and Star Wars: Age of Republic – Qui-Gon #1 can be found below.
