Even so, there is a canon comic from LINE Webtoon that once mentioned the existence of this legendary Jedi Knight. The comic itself takes place about two years after the events Obi Wan Kenobi, where Luke is only 12 years old. The comic story begins when Luke and his best friend Windy are trapped in the desert of Tatooine, where a moment later a Krayt Dragon attacks them. Luckily, Obi-Wan arrived just in time and saved them.
Obi-Wan then returns the teenage Luke and Windy to Owen. At the same time saying that Luke has a very strong Force power and one day he will leave his plantation.

After the comic, Obi-Wan also briefly reappeared in the short story Star Wars: Life Day Treasury, precisely in the story entitled ‘An Old Hope’. In this story, the slightly older Obi-Wan is said to have saved the LA-R1 droid from the Javanese.
LA-R1 thought Obi-Wan was a Santa Claus-like figure, then called him ‘The Oil Bringer‘. Although the story is not as significant as the previous LINE Webtoon comics, but it’s a short story Star Wars: Life Day Treasury this has changed the way he views droids.
