Hell Yeah, Mace Windu Is Getting His Own Comic Book

New Mace Windu Miniseries Coming From Marvel Marvel Announces MACE WINDU Series by Owens & Cowan
Freda Brock | 19 May, 2017, 20:23

We know that a spin-off movie is planned for 2020, but the title and subject has yet to be announced. Director Mark Thompson and Executive Producer chimed in over on the PlayStation Blog to tell us more about our main protagonist, an Imperial loyalist through whom we'll relive the events that bridge the 30 years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Marvel Entertainment is expanding its Star Wars comic book line-up once again, and it's looking to the prequel trilogy for its next leading man. Launching this summer, Samuel L. Jackson's favorite Jedi Knight will return in the new mini series Star Wars: Jedi of the Republic - Mace Windu.

A new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II has been released, which focuses on Iden Versio. And we have the official PR direct from the source. Mace Windu is no different. It had the best story, George Lucas let the cast act a bit and watching Anakin Skywalker turn into Darth Vader was a geek dream come true. But for the purple-bladed-lightsaber-wielding Jedi, it's actually just beginning.

Turkish ties hit rough patch after rough Erdogan visit
Given Erdogan's iron-like grip on his government, it is unlikely that his security detail would have acted without direct orders. The State Department condemned the attack as an assault on free speech and warned Turkey that the action would not be tolerated.

Few details are known about the story, except that it will chronicle Windu's early battles in the Clone Wars, which ultimately led to the formation of the Galactic Empire. Below is the cover for the first book, illustrated by Jesus Saiz.

Star Wars fans have a lot to look forward from the galaxy far, far away.

The official Marvel description:For over a thousand generations, the Jedi have been the peacekeepers of the galaxy...but now, at the dawn of the Clone Wars, they find themselves in a new role: generals in the Army of the Republic. This August, writer Matt Owens (Elektra) will team with artist Denys Cowan (Nighthawk, Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers) to unveil the exciting story of one of the Jedi's greatest warriors in STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC - MACE WINDU #1!
