Interesting. I wonder what prompted this. Was the LTOTS series really that popular, or is it coming from the need to resolve the story, flesh it out?

This is JJM's second series to be realized in both books and comics. I really rather like the idea, and I hope we'll see more of it in the future. There are plenty of comics I'd love to see get moved over to novels, and plenty of books that I'd love to see realized in the visual medium.

Intriguing.

First Knight Errant gets a book and Comic Series, not this (as VZ already mentioned). Hopefully this is a sign of things to come with the comics and nvoels working more closely together to flesh things out in different eras rather than going their own ways with things.

I'm looking forward to this. Frankly, I've always been curious about how Keshiri looked (I get the whole lavender-skinned thing, but a picture is worth 1,000 words).

Hey, and good news for the artist: the trope of women in comic books being uber-sexed and beautiful-beyond-the-norm would work well here. The Lost Tribe is known for valuing physical beauty to the extreme.

I'm excited about this to actually. Its a good opportunity to show the Tribe develop and how some of its leaders came to power. Plus its one of the few stories that will be wholly about the Dark Side users and not really Jedi.

I was wondering if the male Sith in that picture was actually a Keshiri.

He's purple and not wielding a lightsaber. I never noticed before but you're right, he IS Keshiri!

This seems interesting. Looks like art will be done by Andrea Mutti, so I'm really looking forward to this.

John Jackson Miller said more about the series on his blog:

Quote:

...As always, all the stories are complete and you don't need to read one to enjoy the others but Lost Tribe of the Sith - Spiral gives us a continuation of the history of the Lost Tribe.

The cover the first issue by Paul Renaud, at right, depicts Takara a protector of law and order for the Tribe on Kesh and Spinner, anarchist leader of a band of outlaws. If he can't rule the Tribe, he'll bring it down!

As you can see, we'll be visiting locales on Kesh we've never seen before. Andrea Mutti from Knights of the Old Republic - War will be giving us our first looks at everything in the prose stories from Keshiri to uvak. We've worked to design a complete fantasy world. It's Star Wars through a different lens no technology, very little metal, and no Jedi!

There will be some big surprises, some building upon clues already in the prose stories. Kesh may not be quite as isolated from the rest of the galaxy as we thought...

Hmm. I thought he was more brown than lavender. I thought he was just a regular old human.

I thought so at first too, but he doesn't have a lightsaber... which leads me to believe he's a native. And if he's a native... suddenly, he looks a whole lot more lavender to me.

It also looks like he's got more of a muzzle than a mouth.

Spinner is a dark-skinned human. All the diversity of humanity was represented on Omen. The Keshiri are unmistakably purple, as we'll see.

Well, this thread just got a lot more awesome. Welcome Mr. Miller!!

Can you perhaps tell us if this occurs during or after the LTOTS short stories?
