Dark Horse Comics has announced a brand new Star Wars universe series called “Star Wars: Knight Errant”.
Set one thousand years before Episode I, in a time referred to as the â€œDark Age of the Republic,â€ this story takes place in an era when the Sith were legion and the Republic was strained to the breaking point, leaving large swaths of the galaxy with no one to turn to. This pivotal time in the history of Star Wars has been largely unexplored, until now.
The series will be written by John Jackson Miller, who will introduce readers to a new female Jedi and her realization that she plays an important role in the galaxy.Â Additionally, fans of prose Star Wars books will be interested to know that Miller will also be writing a novel based on this series that will include the same cast of characters in an original adventure.
â€œThereâ€™s such wonderful chaos going on in the galaxy in this period,â€ said writer John Jackson Miller. â€œMore than a generation before Darth Bane introduced the Rule of Two, Sith Lords are colliding not just with the Republic, but with each other. Kerraâ€™s going to find that good intentions just may not be enough in a galaxy gone mad! This is a wide-open area to explore, and Iâ€™m thrilled that Dark Horse and Del Rey have given me this opportunity to do so.â€
Star Wars: Knight Errant is scheduled to arrive this fall.
