USA Today has just announced a five-part Marvel Darth Maul miniseries piecing together Maul’s backstory in the official canon. The series is written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross. Check out the official description for the miniseries:

“The comic finds Maul an untested warrior under the training of Darth Sidious, who would later become the Galactic Emperor. Told to stand down from engaging with Jedi yet, Maul hunts down the worst of the worst in the cosmic underworld to vent his frustration.
After learning a young Jedi Padawan named Eldra Kaitis has fallen into the hands of a crime lord, Maul seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side.”

I am all for exploring more of Maul’s backstory and finally getting a comic book series from Marvel not set in the Orginal Trilogy. No word on when this series will be released.
