Marvel Comics have announced that they will be releasing a 5 part mini series to accompany Respawn Entertainments new Action RPG. The series will be named “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” just in case you didn’t know they were linked… A lot of games have extended universes that tell the tale of characters outside of the games. These normally come out after the game is released or if the game is apart of a larger series then they may tease it. Or they can use other media to fill gaps between games if there is a time jump.
While yes this is a Star Wars game it is the first of the Star Wars Jedi series. It seems to me that Respawn are using this as a cop out. If they plan on using this comic for the protagonists character development then you might need to be worried. Personally, I am excited for the game but, that does not mean that I am blind to the flaws.
Back on topic… I do love the Vader comics by Marvel comics. If #Fallen Order’ is anything like that, then I will enjoy it whole heartedly. The writer for this series is Matthew Rosenberg who is well known for his stint writing The Punisher and The Uncanny X-Men. Talk about a heavy weight. The Artist that has been chosen is Paolo Villanelli who has worked on Star Wars comics for Marvel before. Specifically; Star Wars Vader: Dark Visions and Star Wars Age of the Republic. He also did art for Tony Stark: Iron Man #12 and #13.
The synopsis of the comic is as follows:
Leading into Jedi: Fallen Order the upcoming third-person action-adventure Star Wars title from Lucasfilm and Respawn Entertainment, DARK TEMPLE follows the Jedi Master ENO CORDOVA and his impulsive Padawan CERE JUNDA on their most dangerous mission yet. The Jedi Council has sent them to the remote planet Ontotho to oversee the peaceful excavation of a mysterious temple that has been uncovered. But they will come to find that what surrounds the temple may be even more dangerous than the mysteries within it. Clandestine local resistance forces and ruthless corporate security troops in a war for the fate of Ontotho – and the Jedi are caught in the middle!
