Though it was territory tread quite recently in the spectacular book "Kenobi" by John Jackson Miller, Marvel has set their sights on Ben Kenobi's Tatooine exile for the comic book.

I was almost positive this era of Kenobi's life would be explored in the new canon sooner or later, but part of me was hoping that we'd get to see it in one of the Anthology films and starring Ewan McGregor. This doesn't necessarily mean that can't happen, but it does seem as though they're going to tell the stories they want to tell whenever and wherever they want to.

The official Marvel blurb:

This July, experience a very special issue of the blockbuster Star Wars series as special guest artist Simone Bianchi (Thanos Rising, Astonishing X-Men) joins chart-topping writer Jason Aaron for a look back into the past with STAR WARS #7! Luke Skywalker has uncovered the journals of his departed mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now, experience Kenobi’s harrowing accounts of days long gone by! It is a time when injustice reigned on Tattooine. As villainous scum runs rampant over the blistering sands, only a Jedi Master stands any hope of liberating the planet from the grasp of gangs, thieves and thugs. But would Ben risk everything to do what was right? Even if it meant revealing himself to those searching for his whereabouts? Find out this July as Aaron & Bianchi bring you STAR WARS #7!
