Clone Wars Finale Finally Arrives, in Comic Book Form (UPDATED)

Even Cartoon Network fans have to admit that the network of late has been plagued with cancellations – whether intentional or because of situations that are entirely out of their hands – of shows that are still very popular and rating really well with viewers, leaving fans to wonder exactly how the stories ended (or would have ended). In the case of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, fans no longer have to wonder because Dark Horse Comics will be ending their relationship with the Star Wars franchise on a high note: they are going to give fans one last arc of the Clone Wars, which will also serve as the series finale.

Dark Horse’s take on The Clone Wars will be titled Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir – a 4-part miniseries that will tell the tale of the eponymous Sith Lord. The story will be written by Jeremy Barlow, with the artist still unannounced.

Fans would note that this isn’t the only series TV that Dark Horse has picked up and continued well after the show has ended its run, with prime examples being Josh Whedon’s Buffy and Angel franchises, both of which have already aired their season finales only to be continued through the pages of a comic book.

UPDATE 1/12/14:

Clone Wars showrunner Dave Filoni has clarified via his Facebook page that the Darth Maul comic from Dark Horse will not be the show’s finale:

“I’d like to make clear that this storyline does not represent The Clone Wars series finale,” Filoni wrote. “I’ve seen some confusion about that online and want to set the record straight. There are additional Clone Wars episodes on the way and one arc in particular marks the series finale in my mind. We’ll have fun discussing that in the not too distant future.”

The following two tabs change content below.
