Darth Maul slashes his way into his own ‘Black, White & Red’ miniseries

The first issue by Benjamin Percy and Stefano Raffaele arrives in April.

Following in the footsteps of Darth Vader, Darth Maul gets the Black, White & Red treatment this spring in a new miniseries coming from Marvel.

Each issue of the four-issue series will be by a different creative team, but the stories will run a full issue — rather than containing several shorter stories like previous BW&R series have. The first issue will feature a story by Wolverine writer Benjamin Percy and artist Stefano Raffaele, who has worked on previous volumes featuring Darth Vader and Moon Knight

“I’ve been a lifelong, obsessive fan of the Star Wars galaxy — it’s such a foundational part of my imagination — and it’s a thrill to be able to contribute to it now.

The story revolves around a 12-year-old named Oliver whose powers connect him to a surreal, cartoon-ish world.

Uncanny Valley is a book that I’ve wanted to make for years. I’m so excited to be making it with the impossibly talented Dave Wachter and with BOOM! Studios,” said Fleecs. “It’s a big huge story set in two giant worlds with all sorts of magic and mystery and robots and skeletons but it’s centered on this little tiny family. Those are my favorite kinds of stories.”
