Old Wounds is a 13-page non-canon comic featured in Star Wars: Visionaries, written and drawn by Aaron McBride. It is set in 16 BBY.

Plot summaryEdit


Obi-Wan and Maul fight a rematch.

Darth Maul, with replacement bionic legs attached to his upper torso, seeks out the Lars homestead to find and avenge himself upon Obi-Wan Kenobi. Upon his arrival he is met by Owen Lars, whom he swiftly disarms. Obi-Wan surprises his hunter by leaping from underneath the sand. Former Jedi and former Sith fight it out, and during the fight Maul loses an arm, and after that the duel continues until Kenobi catches Maul off-guard, his deactivated lightsaber positioned beside his defenseless opponent's head. Kenobi is then assailed by the memories of losses he has suffered in the past and is thus tempted by the dark side to ignite his weapon and, in vengeance, kill the Zabrak instantly. Before he can act upon (or perhaps even make) a fateful choice, Lars shoots Maul in the head with his recovered blaster rifle. Kenobi says he will take the corpse and burn it in the Dune Sea. Owen, thinking of the safety of his ward, young Luke Skywalker, tells Kenobi never again to return to the Lars homestead, fearing his presence might attract further unwanted attention. But as he leaves, Obi-Wan telepathically tells the infant Luke that, though they might not see him, he will never be far away.

Behind the scenesEdit

Wookieepedia has 4 images related to Old Wounds.

When questioned about the timeline for the stories of Star Wars: Visionaries, Leland Chee stated that this story was non-canon.[1] However, The Story of General Grievous: Lord of War by Abel G. Peña has a sentence which implies Old Wounds may just be canon: "The Soulless One was eventually tracked down by a cyborg acquaintance of Obi-Wan's, an old enemy who anonymously reported the ship to the local Imperial authorities." Additionally, although Watto is shown to be still alive in 1 ABY in Star Wars Galaxies, the Toydarian in this story is never explicitly identified as Watto.

Darth Maul's appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, starting in the episode "Revenge", was based on his design from Old Wounds.[2]

The Star Wars Rebels episode "Twin Suns" roughly adapts the events of this comic, with Obi-Wan even referencing the comic's name when he calls Maul an "old wound", but there are several differences, such as taking place in 2 BBY instead of 16 BBY, the presence of Ezra Bridger, and Obi-Wan being the one to kill Maul.
