    If Luke is involved I'm curious if the KoR are Kylo Ren fellow student/Jedi learning buddies.


    Charles Soule also calls it "From Ben to Ren"

    I'm surprised they're (only) telling this story in a comic. Not disappointed, just surprised

    Probably because they don't wanna give away TOOOO much, but wanna build on the fact the KoR are in the movie. So a good middle ground, and then after 9 will get the book or TV show (Most likely a book but still...)

    I would have assumed a book and then a comic adaptation down the line, but you're probably right about not wanting to reveal too much.

    But...I think it's a good sign of where things are going post 9 when the box opens.

    I hope so, there's definitely more to that storyline than a four part mini can explore

    With Luke being in this, but the series called the Rise of Kylo Ren, its probably going to only touch on the final days of the Academy.

    But it will for certain create stepping stones future stories about Luke, Ben, and the other students.

    I wonder if this will double down on the idea that the KoR are Luke’s former students

    This series is great news in my opinion, and quite overdue. As a fan of his Darth Vader series, I find C. Soule an excellent choice for the writing duties, so I'm eager to see where this series is going!

    Luke may have a more prominant role in flashbacks. Most of this story is going to be about Kylo, not Ben. Luke never shared scenes with Ben after he became Kylo until crait.

    So while having most of the story set post Acadamy fall, the writer sprinkles in young Ben and Luke flashbacks, contrasting Kylo Ren with his former self.

    I got a feeling we're heading towards another Star Wars: Obi-Wan & Anakin type comic after this one or maybe even a NJO type book.

    Soule writing Ben to Ren is amazing, although I have a feeling this'll be more of a Kylo and Pals type of story with some limited flashbacks (like the Anakin and Obi-Wan miniseries). Still shows they have so much content to cover in Episode IX that they had to shunt off a significant part of Kylo's backstory to a comic. But a fantastic writer of Dark Side Star Wars-ing to boot. His Darth Vader Vol 2 #25 is astoundingly good so great to see Soule gets to tackle it. If they can get Giuseppe Camuncoli to do the art it'd be gold.

    I’m so excited for this. And I’m glad they chose to tell this story via comic. I think comics are the best medium outside of film/tv to tell a Star Wars story.

    Rise of Kylo Ren has the potential to be awesome. Luke vs Kylo and his knights? I want to see that live action, but alas...

    It's probably not going to be very comprehensive - many of these types of releases so far have mostly been about one contained story, or a couple, like Shattered Empire, that sort of give us a smattering of helpful information rather than a real in depth coverage.

    Probably not an exact one, but Pablo's been hinting on Twitter that Luke's exile lasted for around 5 years; that's a fair assumption considering Bloodine is 6 years before TFA, but I'd assume he'd have known about this (and any other Luke/Ben plans) when he made those comments.

    Yah I agree, I think it'll be great (big Shattered Empire fan too) but the focus will be sort of limited. Soule is awesome at conveying dark side in brief snippets of character, I do think we'll see Kylo's evolution from Ben to Ren (I picture this starting right after the Jedi training temple slaughter) and skip around or flashbacks. Only 4 issues, I think we'll get the story but not every nook and cranny of it.

    I also agree that aside from movies (and we'll see how live action TeeVee pans out) that comics is one of the better mediums to tell Star Wars stories, especially important ones. Visuals!
