Fans can’t get enough of Obi-Wan after seeing him in the recent issue of Marvel’s Star Wars comic series by Charles Soule.

Since it’s Soule’s 100th issue published for Star Wars, he made a special issue showcasing different stories from across three eras of Star Wars. One focused on Anakin and Obi-Wan. Another one was about Vader and Palpatine. Kylo Ren stole the spotlight for a brief second and Poe Dameron ended the issue with a cool eulogy.

While each mini-story told an intriguing small tale, Anakin and Obi-Wan stole the spotlight when Kenobi had to explain why Jedi never make other weapons with Kyber crystals. Anakin believed that the Jedi should create Kyber spears and blasters until Obi-Wan gave him the lecture that he learned from his master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

Obi-Wan shared that while the lightsaber isn’t the most powerful weapon, not everyone can wield it. A lightsaber is a precise weapon that symbolizes that the Jedi are peacekeepers and not rulers. Then Obi-Wan confessed that he had thought of some crazy weapons such as a light-saber on two ends attached by a chain which shocked fans.

Everyone knows that Kenobi loves his “elegant” blade and doesn’t do well with blasters so it was fun to see a young Obi-Wan messing around with the idea of a dangerous lightsaber weapon:

One fan asked where they could read this story so another fan shared that anybody can read this story in Star Wars #25.

Isn’t it great?? I love it, too. There’s more to it, too – Obi-Wan and Anakin have their own little story in Star Wars #25

Hopefully, fans can see more of Obi-Wan in the future. As of right now, Obi-Wan has a mini-series currently in the comics and then potentially getting a second season if Disney decides to go for another season of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Fans love Obi-Wan so it seems that the character won’t disappear anytime soon.

Star Wars may be about a galaxy far far away, but it’s full of amazing stories and characters. Fortunately, those stories continue to be made as Lucasfilm promises to tell character-driven stories in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ahsoka, The Acolyte, and of course The Mandalorian. While the Disney+ series has become the new norm for Star Wars, Taika Waititi is making a movie, and of course, Patty Jenkin’s Rogue Squadron is in the works.
