John Jackson Miller, author of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comic series and the Lost Tribe of the Sith eBooks, has been working on the next big story arc for the Star Wars Expanded Universe: Knight Errant. A comic book series (slated to debut October 13) that will be augmented by a novel release (on February 22), Knight Errant takes readers a thousand years before Luke Skywalker, and just before Drew Karpyshyn’s Darth Bane trilogy.
In an exclusive interview with MTV News, Miller divulges not only the release dates, but a bit more about the series, including some information about the lead character, lone Jedi Knight Kerra Holt:
“A refugee from a sector conquered years before by the Sith, Kerra fled to the Republic with one goal in mind: to become a living weapon and return to Sith space. She’s young, but she’s driven. Efficient, deadly, and determined, her drive takes her to some places no one should visit without a Star Destroyer for backup. Too bad for her, they haven’t been invented yet!”
In addition to the plot details, MTV News revealed two covers for the first issue, from artists Joe Quinones and Dave Ross.
