Star Wars: Jedi—The Dark Side is a five-issue story arc that is part of the Star Wars: Jedi comic book series written by Scott Allie. Set in 53 BBY, the story arc follows Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Xanatos as they are sent by the Jedi Council to prevent civil war from erupting on Xanatos's homeworld of Telos IV. The first issue was released on May 18, 2011.[1]

The story arc is an adaptation of the backstory described in Jedi Apprentice: The Dark Rival, although it follows a very different storyline.

Behind the scenesEdit

Many of the characters and places in Jedi—The Dark Side are based on those that originated in Jude Watson's Jedi Apprentice series by Scholastic: Xanatos, Crion, Tahl, Thani, Landor, etc. The story is an expansion on Watson's introduction of the Telosian Civil War and Xanatos' fall to the dark side upon the "murder" of his father Crion by his Jedi Master.[2]
