'Star Wars: Darth Maul - Black, White & Red' Spotlights the Full Terror of the Dark Side

'Star Wars: Darth Maul – Black, White & Red' kicks off in April with a story by Benjamin Percy and Stefano Raffaele.

Last year, Marvel brought its hit BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD line to a galaxy far, far away with STAR WARS: DARTH VADER – BLACK, WHITE & RED. Now, another deadly Sith will have his most violent exploits unleashed in this stunning format in STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL – BLACK, WHITE & RED

Hitting stands in April, this latest BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD installment will stand apart from its predecessors by delivering a single, standalone blockbuster each issue. The four-part series will boast a new superstar creative team each issue, starting with writer Benjamin Percy, known for crafting high-stakes thrills in titles like WOLVERINE and GHOST RIDER, and Stefano Raffaele, who previously delivered blood-soaked horror in the series MOON KNIGHT: BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD and DARTH VADER: BLACK, WHITE & RED.

When he first appeared 25 years ago in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Darth Maul gripped fans’ imaginations with his quiet but captivating presence, his unique lightsaber and dueling skills, and of course, his iconic look. The new series will offer sagas set throughout the character’s mysterious history, diving into his never-before-seen missions and further exploring his twisted bond with his dark master, Palpatine.  The series’ first story will see Maul initiate a one-man war against a newly discovered adversary for the Sith. 

A prison ship—transporting a mysterious group known as the Final Occultation—goes offline, and Darth Maul is sent by Palpatine to investigate. What he finds on board is the stuff of nightmares! Now, it's up to him to stop this profoundly dark and unstable threat that wishes to bring chaos to the galaxy.

"The silent assassin has a busy inner world. He is loyal to Palpatine, but that does not make him a puppet or a tool. He is willing to make his own decisions—ones that could shake the very fabric of the galaxy—as is the case in this chiller and thriller of a story, 'The Final Occultation,'" Percy told

"DARTH VADER: BLACK, WHITE & RED was a huge success for us and fans went wild for it," Editor Mark Paniccia shared. "We immediately started getting requests to feature Darth Maul for our next journey into the unique BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD comic format. Ben and Stefano serve a story filled with horrors you haven’t seen before in a Star Wars tale."
