The Rule of Two…
I have to start this out right by saying THANK YOU to everyone for making Qui Gon Jinn a success! Even if you are sick of me saying it, you all continue to humble me by supporting my work. It’s still surreal that I’m able to work on something as personal as Star Wars, let alone have anyone like it. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!
So, is everyone stoked for Darth Maul #1? It was so tough to keep my lips sealed during Qui Gon, because I REALLY wanted to use a line about “Get him before Darth Maul does on February 1st!” I remember seeing the first images of Maul, and I instantly fell in love with how much of a bad-a he looked like. It was a blast to work on the first apprentice, but as the Rule of Two states, “Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody power, the other to crave it.” So it seemed only natural, if you are going to have the Apprentice, I might as well draw the Master!
That’s right, the Dark Lord of the Sith is coming exclusively to johntylerchristopher.com
– JTC EXCLUSIVE full-color DARTH SIDIOUS Action Figure Variant for Darth Maul #1
He will be available for Pre-sale on January 26th.
Like before, we are offering graded books of 9.6 or better from both CGC & CBCS. You get to choose between two exceptional grading services.
The book will be limited to 3,000.
So with that out of the way, here’s the skinny on the books.
Behold the Power of the Dark Side of the Force!
Palpatine is one of my favorite things about the prequels and remains one of the most iconic characters from the original trilogy. I’ve been watching The Clone Wars with my family, and I’m all about how amazingly evil he is! Everything this guy does just drips with it. If you haven’t watched the Clone Wars, I can’t recommend it enough (besides, you are missing out on Ashoka Tano and that IS evil). We aren’t to THE fight yet; but I’m beyond excited for that episode, so the rest of my family know truly how hardcore he is! In honor of that scene, I decided to go, full on, two lightsabers. Man, that scene is such a wonderful payoff, and really shows his character. Classic Star Wars at it’s best!
