Ten-issue series ‘Star Wars: Yoda’ to explore Jedi Master’s storied history

‘Star Wars: Yoda’ will be created by Cavan Scott and Nico Leon with future issues by Jody Houser and Marc Guggenheim.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed Yoda will be getting his own ten-issue series this October. Appropriately titled Star Wars: Yoda, the series will span centuries and will be divided into three arcs by three separate creative teams, each set during key moments in the Jedi Master’s long and legendary life. This news was first announced at the Marvel Star Wars Comics Panel at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. Don’t miss our news on The High Republic phase II plans.

The series will start set in during Yoda’s self-imposed exile on Dagobah by Cavan Scott and Nico Leon. They’ll be followed by writers Jody Houser and Marc Guggenheim and artists Luke Ross and Alessandro Miracolo with stories set just before the Prequel Trilogy and near the end of the Clone Wars.

“I’ve been lucky to write Yoda in various projects over the last few years, most notably in Dooku: Jedi Lost, and every time I write him my love for him deepens,” Scott told StarWars.com. “It’s fair to say that my study at home is a shrine for three Star Wars icons: there are a lot of Obi-Wan figures; many, many, many, MANY pieces of Ewok merchandise (do I love those murder bears more than the Lepi? Don’t tell Jaxxon, but there’s every chance!); and then there is Yoda. The little guy is everywhere, in models, in art, and in lots of LEGO. Yoda casts a long shadow over anything he appears in, and writing him is a privilege and a responsibility I take seriously.”

“I’ve been wanting to do a Yoda book since I started working on the STAR WARS titles,” Editor Mark Paniccia added. “Yoda is a very special character to me as he is to everyone working on this series. We all have our hearts and souls in this and I hope the fans enjoy it as much as we have putting it together. It’s really unique and I’m very proud of it.”
