Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin, stylized as Obi-Wan & Anakin, is a canon comic book miniseries written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Marco Checchetto. The five-issue series is set three years after Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and focuses on Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker[1] as they explore the planet of Carnelion IV to answer a mysterious distress call. The series also features flashbacks, scattered across every issue, that detail the beginning of Anakin's trust towards Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star… they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It's been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young "chosen one," but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point. Writer Charles Soule (Lando, She-Hulk, Daredevil) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Avengers World, Punisher) bring us a tale of the Jedi at the height of their power…[7]
