The new "Obi-wan & Anakin" comic book coming from Marvel might be the one I'm most excited for. It's set in an era we know little about, and even less so since the new canon shift. And it involves two of my favorite characters. It's also being written by Charles Soule, who came up with the brilliantly written Lando book. How can we lose with this?

Here's the official synopsis and preview pages. It comes out in January.

 Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their confrontation on the Death Star…they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. Today, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel Entertainment are pleased to present your first look inside OBI-WAN AND ANAKIN #1 – the newest Star Wars™ limited series from blockbuster creators Charles Soule (Lando, She-Hulk, Daredevil) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Avengers World, Punisher)! Set between the events of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones – it has been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young Anakin. Though they have grown closer through training, the road has been a difficult one. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan’s skills will be put to the test. And their relationship will be pushed to the breaking point. Before they became brothers-in-arms during the Clone Wars, be there as Soule and Checchetto weave a tale of the Jedi at the height of their power, and the foundations of their doomed friendship. It all starts this January in OBI-WAN AND ANAKIN #1!
