Dark Horse launching Star Wars line of graphic novels in 2024

New Star Wars graphic novel line launches with Hyperspace Stories—Qui Gon!

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced a new line of graphic novels set in the Star Wars universe. It all kicks off with the 80-page Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories Qui-Gon Jinn, a standard comic size (6.625” x 10.1875”) original graphic novel, which will arrive in bookstores April 23, 2024 and comic shops on April 24, 2024.

The graphic novel celebrates the 25th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, which landed in theaters May 19, 1999, written by George Mann with art by Andrea Mutti and Gigi Baldassini.

“I’m thrilled to be getting my hands on Qui-Gon at long last!” said writer George Mann, “He’s such an icon of the Prequel era, and it’s a real joy to be able to add to his story. Expect everything from lightsaber battles to creepy investigations, from dark side sects to familiar faces, as we check in on Qui-Gon at three pivotal moments in his life, venturing to the streets of Jedha as a Padawan, to the distant world of Cerosha as a lonesome Jedi Knight, and deep into the wreck of an ancient spaceship as a Jedi Master. Count Dooku! Young Obi-Wan! It’s all here! Plus, of course, the most gorgeous art from Andrea and Gigi.”

So what’s Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories Qui-Gon Jinn about?

Qui-Gon Jinn is one of the most revered Jedi of all time. From his youth as a gifted Padawan under Count Dooku, to his years as a skilled Jedi Master and one of the most respected Force wielders in the history of the Jedi Order, his story is truly remarkable. This particular tale looks at a series of recurring events from across his life, slowly bringing together clues over the years to help Qui-Gon complete the puzzle of some of the Force’s many mysterious followers: The Brotherhood of the Ninth Door. Secret Force abilities could make them a great ally to the Jedi, or a powerful enemy. Master Qui-Gon and his eager young Padawan learner, Obi-Wan Kenobi, must uncover their secrets before they fall into the wrong hands!

“We’re so excited to bring these original graphic novels to Star Wars fans of all ages,” said Michael Siglain, creative director, Lucasfilm publishing. “These are all swashbuckling standalone stories that focus on classic characters and showcase why they’re so beloved and iconic. And in addition to highlighting these galactic heroes and villains, we’re also really embracing the medium, telling tales as only comics can.”
