At this years New York Comic-con, Dark Horse Comics have announced a new series is 2012 by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema which introduces readers to a time before lightsabers when the Force had only just been discovered.

Here's your first look at the Star Wars of 25,000 years ago-before there were lightsabers, when the ties to the Force were new, and before the Jedi spread out into the galaxy. It began with the mysterious pyramid ships-the Tho Yor-scattered to the eight corners of the galaxy, and ended with the establishment of an Order that would change the universe forever.

On the planet Tython, in the center of the galaxy, an order of warrior monks strives to maintain peace and to balance the mysterious power known as the Force. But a stranger is coming-one who will destroy both peace and balance, and open the galaxy to exploration and conquest. This is where it all begins!

Personally I can't wait for the series to start with issue #0 next year.
