"Stories. I nearly died fighting that bounty hunter on Tatooine, and all for what? All Ben left me was a book of stories. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with this. I don't see where this book tells me anything about fighting with a lightsaber or using the Force."
―Luke Skywalker[src]

"The Journals of Ben Kenobi" were a set of journals written by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi during his exile on the desert world of Tatooine. After Kenobi's mortal death, Luke Skywalker visited Kenobi's home on Tatooine and discovered the journal kept in a case labeled "For Luke."[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Journals of Ben Kenobi were first introduced in the Marvel comic book Star Wars 6.[1] The comic's author, Jason Aaron, revealed that stories from Kenobi's journal will be told as standalone comics between each arc of the Star Wars comic series. The first story from the journal was told in Star Wars 7: From the Journals of Old Ben Kenobi: "The Last of His Breed".[2]

Although the transcribed title in the comic uses the word "journals," in the plural,[1] the Aurebesh on the cover actually reads "journal," in the singular.[1][3]
