Dark Horse to bring Darth Maul back for Clone Wars Finale!

Dark Horse will engage in one last lightsaber battle before turning the Star Wars graphic novels over to Marvel. Veteran Star Wars writer and editor Jeremy Barlow will be finishing The Clone Wars in a series of graphic novels to be released in May 2014. This will allow them to wrap up a planned story exploring Darth Maul’s arc by adapting the show’s scripts into a four-part miniseries: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir. This will also give fans of the show some much-needed closure, even if it’s coming in a slightly different format.

Barlow is also working to make sure that readers unfamiliar with The Clone Wars will be able to jump in: “All you need to know is that Darth Maul has returned, that he’s really pissed off, and that his former master Darth Sidious is determined to put him back in the ground, permanently.” We can think of no better way to spend May than catching up with pissed off Darth Maul!

Brilliant news! Glad to see Dark Horse's Star Wars going out with a bang! Plus more Clone Wars and Darth Maul is always a good thing.

I will admit I haven't actually seen any of the Clone Wars seasons past season 1 (although we plan to at some point), but I was never that thrilled with resurrecting Darth Maul in the first place. That said, it at least gives me a excuse to have some kind of head canon that maybe Mace Windu survived ;) He can be in Rebels!

Who cares about Maul? I wanna hear about Ahsoka and Asajj!!

And wasn't Maul in Sidious' clutches and being tortured last time we saw him? I kinda assumed he was dead (again) already.

Sounds like a fun concept to me.
And regarding Ahsoka and Asajj, I think it would be great to see those two appear in the new Star Wars: Rebels show.

@3 Maybe if you had cared to listen to what was being said during Maul's final face-off with Sidious, you can clearly hear the latter saying he's not going to kill him because he still has use for him (though obviously not as an apprentice).
