I was always a huge fan of the Star Wars Universe and I always had this amazing respect for Master Windu. To be honest, I was enormously disappointed in how things ended for this character because, and if you were a fan also you might also agree, there was always a sense of a background missing. Master Windu played a role in the movies which not everyone from the Jedi High Council can say the same, and I always believed there was a gap of how many things we know about such a powerful character.
My prayers have been heard it seems and this August writer Matt Owens teams up with artist Denys Cowan in order to give us the story of one of the greatest Jedi’s warrior that ever lived.
For over a thousand generations, the Jedi have been the peacekeepers of the galaxy… but now, at the dawn of the Clone Wars, they find themselves in a new role: generals in the Army of the Republic. As Mace Windu, one of the Jedi’s greatest warriors, leads a small unit of Jedi into battle shortly after the war begins, the Jedi must make peace with their new role, or be lost to the violence around them!
“No matter how well trained for battle the Jedi are, having to actually put those skills to use is another thing entirely. The preferred tools of the Jedi are diplomacy, harmony, education, peace. Now they find themselves leading troops on battlefields across the galaxy,” said series writer Matt Owens. “They’re going to have a lot of thoughts about this. Is this really the way to peace? Is this the position I should be taking? Is this really the path the Jedi should be walking down. Doubt is understandable, but what each individual does with that doubt is very telling of who they are and where they will end up.”
Even though the comic will be out on August we will have our first real previews this June! so stay tuned at Comic Spot for more Mace Windu news!
