Of all of the flawed bits of the prequel trilogy, Count Dooku is one of the most glaring. Played by one of the all–time great humans, Sir Christopher Lee, the character had an opportunity to do so much, both as a fallen Jedi and a rising Sith, but was mostly relegated to…well, not too much. The recently animated Dooku and Yoda battle shows a small taste of what could have been.
But, luckily for us, the films are never quite the end for Star Wars. Jody Houser (“Faith,” “Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor”) and Luke Ross (“Star Wars: Thrawn,” “Iron Man”) are telling a new Dooku tale as part of the ‘Age of Republic’ one-shots from Marvel. We are thrilled to share an exclusive preview of the issue, due out on February 13.

Thanks to Marvel for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!
