Kanan 1: The Last Padawan, Part I: Fight is the first issue of the Marvel Comics Star Wars comic book series Star Wars: Kanan and the first of six issues in the Last Padawan arc. The comic is a prequel to the animated television series Star Wars Rebels, telling the story of Kanan Jarrus in the aftermath of Order 66. The comic, released on April 1, 2015, is written by Star Wars Rebels executive producer Greg Weisman, with art by Pepe Larraz.

Publisher's summaryEdit

Kanan Jarrus—in STAR WARS REBELS, he's a cocky, sarcastic renegade fighting against the Galactic Empire alongside the rag-tag crew of the Ghost…but years before, at the height of the Clone Wars, he was known as Caleb Dume, Jedi Padawan under the instruction of Jedi Master Depa Billaba. Neither master nor apprentice ever suspected that the Clone Troopers they commanded would turn on them upon the issuing of Order 66—the order to execute all Jedi. How did Caleb Dume survive? How did he learn to survive on his own? And how did he become the man we know as Kanan Jarrus? Writer Greg Weisman (writer/executive producer on STAR WARS REBELS, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN) and artist Pepe Larraz (DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE, THOR, INHUMAN) bring us a tale bridging the years between the Clone Wars and Rebels![1]

Plot summaryEdit

Book I, Part I
It is a dark time for the galaxy. It's been
years since the fall of the Republic, when
Chancellor Palpatine gave ORDER 66,
wiping out the peace-keeping JEDI
ORDER and rising to the role of Emperor.

Since then, the Emperor and his Imperial
forces have ruled the galaxy with a big, big
fist. The people have lived under the yoke
of Imperial oppression and the sparks of
rebellion have begun in secret. Small
clusters of rebels have begun fighting for

One such rebel band is home to KANAN
JARRUS, a mysterious former Jedi who
has spent years hiding his Force powers
and lightsaber. Not even his companions
know his true past, that he was once a
young Jedi Padawan named CALEB
DUME, fighting in the Clone Wars under
his master, DEPA BILLABA....[2]
