Yoda Gets His Own Comic From Marvel – Will They Reveal His Species?

Announced this weekend at Star Wars Celebration, the Jedi Master Yoda will be getting his own comic book from Marvel Comics, launching in October, a ten-issue series with the first arc by Cavan Scott and Nico Leon set during the Star Wars: The High Republic era. But more to come. What secrets will they reveal?

STAR WARS: YODA will take place during Yoda's self-imposed exile on Dagobah as he reflects on past adventures. The centuries-spanning saga 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.

New York Times bestselling author Cavan Scott and artist Nico Leon will kick things off with a story set during the Star Wars: The High Republic era. 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. Scott and Leon will return to complete the saga in the final issue. Yoda's first-ever solo comic series, STAR WARS: YODA will reveal unexplored aspects of the Jedi Master's storied history and shed new light on the mystery that surrounded the iconic character since his debut.

Cavan Scott: "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. 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."

Editor Mark Paniccia: "I've been wanting to do a Yoda book since I started working on the STAR WARS titles. 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."
