With Ben Solo's fall...comes Kylo Ren's rise.

Young Ben Solo is legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker’s most promising pupil. As the son of Rebel Alliance heroes Leia Organa and Han Solo, as well as Luke’s own nephew, Ben has the potential to be a great force for light in the galaxy. But the Skywalker legacy casts a long shadow, the currents of the dark side run deep, and Darth Vader’s blood runs in Ben’s veins. Voices call from both his past and his future, telling him who he must be. He will shatter, he will be reforged, his destiny will be revealed. Snoke awaits. The Knights of Ren await. Ben Solo’s path to his true self begins here.

Written by Charles Soule with art by Will Sliney, the story kicks off a four-issue tale that will send shock waves across the galaxy. Both critics and fans have highly anticipated this epic story and with STAR WARS: RISE OF KYLO REN #1 already sold out, Marvel is thrilled to announce that the first issue will be returning to comic shops for a second printing!

Then, on January 15, the book's second chapter sees Snoke sink his claws in—as young Ben Solo faces the Knights of Ren!

With the new Jedi school in ruins and fellow students hot on his trail for the presumed murder of their master, Ben Solo flees to the only friend he has left in the galaxy…a man named Snoke. But Snoke has plans for Ben…and ideas about the Force that are as dangerous as they are intriguing for the troubled young Jedi. If Ben wishes to be truly free…the answers might lie with the dark side. And with the Knights of Ren! But it won’t be the first time he’s tangled with the Knights. In the past, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker journeys to the Unknown Regions and brings young Ben along for the mission. Can even Luke Skywalker stand against the fabled Knights of Ren?!
