    John and Jan first proposed DOTJ in 2003, but weren’t given the go-ahead until the end of the Legends EU’s lifetime.

    "Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void - Fan project
    Hey guys!
    So I was working on this for a long time but there was always some business that came in between, and now I am working already on other personal projects, so I decided to upload this WIP, maybe some day I will finish it
    Since I read the book Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void by Tim Lebbon, I was captured by it and wanted to illustrate it for myself!
    I love Star Wars and so I thought it would be fun to work on it.
    The story takes place thousands of years before the movies take place and the main heroes are Lanoree Brock, a je'daii ranger and the gangster Twi'lek Tre Sana.
    The concepts I uploaded are some finished pieces and lots of WIP, but hope you enjoy it! "

    I knew it was only a matter of time before this thread would come back. Here it is again, post-Sequel Trilogy.

    Yes, this is my understanding as well. We have quotes from John and Jan to back this up. I've also met another regular person on the creative team as well.

    Nice to see a talented artist give some sorely needed appreciation to Into the Void.

    If John and Jan got approval in 2003, would Xendor and Arden Lyn appear?

    Vendor and Arden Lyn were 24,500 BBY, DOTJ was 25,790 or so.

    That hadn’t been established yet in 2003. At the time, we only knew that Xendor and Arden Lyn lived around the time of the Republic’s formation.

    If the EU had been allowed to continue, Dark Horse could have eventually had comics set in their era. But yes, their era is a different era than the one in Dawn of the Jedi. I think John and Jan would have had the choice of moving the series forward in time or backwards. The Despot War would have also been a possibility. The gathering of force sensitives to Tython on-board the Tho Yor from native planets would have been another possibility.

    "I awoke to find that twenty-five thousand years had gone by—all I knew and all I loved curdled into history then dismissed as myth. Not even dust remains of those who were dear to me. I have outlived planets, and the very constellations are scrambled and strange. I am alone in a way none of you can possibly imagine."
    ―Arden Lyn

    Anyone remember these sketches from January 2012? These sketches surfaced and a few odd announcements were out before Issue #0 and Issue #1 hit the stands in Feb. 2012.

    Proof of Lucasfilm's satisfaction with the series can be found here in this Feb 2014 article from Jen Heddle on starwars.com:
    https://www.starwars.com/news/the-brilliance-of-star-wars-dawn-of-the-jedi

    I'm hoping a renaissance happens with this series and it's Dark Horse that wins the republication rights.

    In the beginning, there were apparently Jedi. But they didn't actually have Lightsabers, they protected the Galaxy with swords. 25,000 Years ago the: The Dawn of the Jedi. Editor Randy Stradley sent over these sketches to share for the upcoming Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi comic.

    I haven't looked at that Durseema concept artwork for awhile. It looks like the second and fourth characters were never used in the series. I'm saying that without scouring every page of the series. If anyone knows the character names for them, I would be curious.

    Master Ketu of Akar kesh, Temple of Balance, is the 3rd character. Quan-Jang of Temple Anil Kesh is the first one.

    These pieces were most likely intended for DOTJ #0 which had a street date of February 1, 2012.

    Check the webpage addresses ;)

    I assume the 2nd is an early concept for Tem Madog. Sek'nos Rath actually has his final costume design there, just with a different sword, and the added hood of course.

    Good match. That seems right. The angles of these concept sketches match similar final pieces in DOTJ #0.

    The concept piece for Sek'nos Rath has his hair and face covered.

    Tem Medog looks like a Sise Fromm gang member from the Droids cartoon.

    I wonder if the largest Tho Yor is actually Mortis...

    Page 8 in Force Storm #1 has a panel with the eight Tho Yor surrounding the 9th and largest.
