Publisher's summaryEdit

Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star… they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It's been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young "chosen one," but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point. Writer Charles Soule (Lando, She-Hulk, Daredevil) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Avengers World, Punisher) bring us a tale of the Jedi at the height of their power…[4]

Plot summaryEdit

Part I
It is a time of peace in the galaxy. For a thousand years
the mystic Jedi Order has served as peacekeeper of the
Republic, painting peace in the service of the
Galactic Senate.

Obi-Wan Kenobi achieved the title of Jedi Knight after
defeating the Sith who killed his master, the noble
Qui-Gon Jinn. To honor Qui-Gon's dying wish, Obi-Wan
has taken Anakin Skywalker as his Padawan, training
him in the ways of the Jedi.

Several years have passed since Anakin began his
studies in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. He has proven
to be stronger in the Force than any child trained in
generations. However, Anakin and Obi-Wan have both
begun to question their roles in the destiny of the
Force. They have embarked upon a mission to the far
reaches of the galaxy to respond to a distress call - a
mission that could change everything for them both....[2]
