To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, which landed in theaters May 19, 1999, this unique series of books will kick off with Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories–Qui-Gon, written by George Mann with art by Andrea Mutti and Gigi Baldassini, arriving in April 2024.
Qui-Gon Jinn is one of the most revered Jedi of all time. From his youth as a gifted Padawan under Count Dooku, to his years as a skilled Jedi Master and one of the most respected Force wielders in the history of the Jedi Order, his story is truly remarkable. This particular tale looks at a series of recurring events from across his life, slowly bringing together clues over the years to help Qui-Gon complete the puzzle of some of the Force’s many mysterious followers: The Brotherhood of the Ninth Door. Secret Force abilities could make them a great ally to the Jedi, or a powerful enemy. Master Qui-Gon and his eager young Padawan learner, Obi-Wan Kenobi, must uncover their secrets before they fall into the wrong hands!
Featuring a cover by award-winning artist Michael Cho, Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories Qui-Gon Jinn spans 80 pages and is a standard comic size (6.625” x 10.1875”) original graphic novel, which will arrive in bookstores April 23, 2024 and comic shops on April 24, 2024. Future books will be announced with details at a later date, but you can pre-order Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories–Qui-Gon now at your local comic shop, bookstore, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble now for $19.99.
