I’m a bit late on this, but at San Diego Comic Con last month, it was announced that Charles Soule is writing a four-issue comic miniseries beginning this December entitled, “The Rise of Kylo Ren.”
As Soule explained it, it’s the story everyone has been dying to see about Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren. Additionally, he described it as “From Ben to Ren.”
This is super exciting news, and I can’t wait for it! This is a story that we’ve been waiting to see for quite a while. What led to Ben Solo becoming Kylo Ren? We got details about the decisive moment his rebellion happened in The Last Jedi, but we know that his mind was already dark at that point. And then after he rebelled, we know… well, only that he became Kylo Ren. So I’m super excited to read more about the time before The Force Awakens, and hopefully learn a lot more about the Knights of Ren too. They’ll be returning for The Rise of Skywalker, so this seems to be a perfect story to tell to go along with that.
And there’s no one better to tell it than Charles Soule, either. His Darth Vader comic was one of the best stories we’ve gotten, and it was a tremendous look at Vader – in many ways, it was a look at Vader’s transformation into Vader. So how fitting it is that Soule will now look at Kylo’s – Vader’s grandson – transformation into Kylo.
I’m super pumped about this, and I can’t wait to read it.
