Star Wars: Dark Disciple Cover Revealed.

dark-disciple has reveal the cover art for the upcoming novel Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden. The cover features Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos.



Based on a series of scripts originally written for the unaired seventh season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and starring ex-Sith bounty hunter, Asajj Ventress, and the unorthodox Jedi Quinlan Vos, this new Star Wars tale of love and loss, betrayal and redemption is being produced in creative collaboration with the Lucasfilm Story Group and Dave Filoni, supervising director of The Clone Wars and executive producer of Star Wars Rebels. Star Wars: Dark Disciple hits the shelves on July 7, 2015.


Originally announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 to much excitement, the book is canonical within the Star Wars universe, and continues the story of two fan-favorite characters. Check out the full cover, a striking work by artist Matt Taylor, below.

    I really like the art here, it reminds me of the stuff they did for the Fate Of The Jedi books.

    Wow, Ventress with hair!!!

    What a shame we’ll never get to see this story in animated form. Thanks Disney.

        Why do you do this every post?

          Because Lobot is THE definitive badass!

    This is the style that the game APB: Reloaded has been using for years. Crazy.

    Quinlan vos is one of the best characters not present in the films; I hope we see more of him… Who knows maybe even as one of the Jedi in episode 7… Or this story might kill him off

      The Vos story arc was one of the best part of the Clone Wars comic series. I thought his arc, particularly his losing himself to the dark side and eventually finding his way back, really seemed to offer readers a good counterpoint to Anakin, who completely gave in to the dark side. I can’t wait to see what direction the new canon takes his story. It would be kind of cool if Vos and Ventress turned out to be Ezra’s parents, from Rebels…

        You see a picture of Ezra’s parents in Rebels. They aren’t Ezra’s parents unless everything’s a lie

    Awesome news that Ventress is not being ditched and forgotten, she was a fantastic character.

    “Master Vos has moved his troops to Boz Pity.”

    So glad that G. Walton Lucas forgot about Quinlan’s death scene on Kashyyyk.

    Might have to check this out. Ventress started out as such a stereotype and evolved into so much. Ended up as one of my favorites.

  • December 10, 2014 at 12:36 am

    This looks soooo awesome!!!! 😀 I can’t wait to read it. 😀

    Sydow = Vos. Just kidding. Lesser Sith such as Asajj (sp). She couldn’t carry movie if her fictitious life depended on it.

    • December 10, 2014 at 4:15 pm

      Why not? Ventress has more personality than Anakin through his three movies.

  • December 10, 2014 at 2:45 am

    I am confused. Are these books canon or are they not? If so, are we to believe that Ventress has hair, because she clearly did not in the Clone Wars, which is also considered canon? Both can’t be right.

    btw, she looks a bit like Gwendolyn Christie.

    • December 10, 2014 at 2:53 am

      She had hair as a child (as seen in a flashback in one of the Nightsister episodes), it’s just that she continuously chose to shave her head bald while she was a Sith acolyte. Her growing her hair back is sort of a visual tip to the audience that she’s not evil anymore. For a frame of reference, here’s what she looked like:

      Yes, these new books are canon. All novels coming forward are.

      • December 10, 2014 at 6:10 am

        good explanation. Why Black Widow has wavy hair in Avengers 1 and 2, but straight hair in ‘Winter Soldier is a little harder to explain. It’s like she KNOWS when there’s gonna be Big big trouble and changes her hair accordingly, then changes back when Loki’s in prison again… spooky sense of timing…

    Like the cover, don’t understand why Mr. Vos is friggin’ huge. Was he always as big as andre the giant? or did Ventress shrink?

  • December 10, 2014 at 4:48 pm

    Beautiful art wow

  • December 11, 2014 at 2:59 am

    Unfortunately Christie Golden isn’t a very strong writer. Some of her Fate Of The Jedi books were painful to read.

  • December 11, 2014 at 6:53 am

    Hate the artwork. Photo manipulation and tracing all hidden underneath a Manga Studio layer with an instant Photoshop background. Since this is coming from Marvel and Disney I would have expected better.
