Marvel Comics Will Release An Adaptation Of Obi-Wan Kenobi in September

File this under… “why?”

One year after the series finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi was released on Disney+ has revealed a brand new limited Marvel Comics Star Wars series: an adaptation of the Disney+ show Obi-Wan Kenobi. Written (adapted) by Jody Houser (who worked on various other Marvel Star Wars titles before) and pencilled by Salvador Larocca (who also worked on various other Marvel Star Wars comics before) Obi-Wan Kenobi will be released in September 2023.

Each of the six issues will adapt one episode of the show. Comic book adaptations of movies have a long tradition. I do wonder though why anyone felt Obi-Wan Kenobi needs a comic book adaptation. Released 15 months after the series ended. I believe this would have made more sense to get released in July 2022, a few weeks after the series ended. I remember reading comic book adaptations of movies based on older script versions or including material that was cut in the editing room, which made those adaptations an interesting read sometimes, because they expanded on what you had seen in theaters. I do wonder how much this adaptation will be different from the show or if it will add anything of substance.

Will you buy the comic series? Or at least the #1 issue?
