    Revered by whom?

    The three friends in the order who didn't think he was a radical or renegade?

    Obi-wan?

    Did Luke offer a "Qui-Gon 101" course at his academy?

    ---------

    Oh, are we talking "out of universe"; where his rather limited content has allowed him to avoid controversy or permitted fandom to paint him with all their hopes and ethos in a effort to explain how the concept of the Jedi as an organization went so wrong?

    ---------

    TPTB should know better, especially Darkhorse...your audience is not a casual fan...not even the parent of a casual fan. If the name and art on the cover isn't grabbing them, do buzzy words like "most revered Jedi of all time" really need to appear in a hope to seal the purchase? Is that getting Grandma to decide "this is the one for Billy's birthday"?

    Or are there more Qui-gon torchbearers out there ready to cheer that someone puts him in the pantheon?

    Seems as how this single volume could potentially double his character background, they better nail it to live up to the billing on the outer jacket.

    If memory serves, the Brotherhood of the Ninth Door is a dark side cult that was an antagonist faction in some of the Phase II THR stuff. With George Mann writing this, that makes sense, but their inclusion in this story - and presumably Qui-Gon's backstory by extension - is still quite interesting.

    Is this graphic novel series replacing the Hyperspace Adventures issue series, or just supplementing it?

    More info on this line of OGNs (emphasis mine), via DarkHorse.com:
    And more info on Qui-Gon in particular (again, emphasis mine):

    I am not the biggest Qui-gon fan, but that is some interesting stuff. In particular, it is fascinating to see the Brotherhood of the Ninth Door get some attention after largely just being some unimportant dupes of the Path of the Open Hand.
