COMMENTS
Dark Horse Extra was a 25 periodical sold thru comic specialty shops. It was 14 3/4" wide and 21 1/2" tall, folded once vertically. On some occasions it may also have been folded again horizontally. It contained three serialized strips, two on the front page and one on the back. Inside was a full page poster (measuring 14 3/4" by 21 1/2") and a full page devoted to upcoming releases called "Scoops from the Stable" by Ivana Fanboy. The rear page also featured an ad and a column on the Dark Horse Web Site called "DHC Web Words" by Jay Pegg.

This issue also features Sock Monkey part 1 by Tony Millionaire and The Nevermen part 2 by Phil Amara, Guy Davis, David Stewart & Steve Haynie, plus a poster for Madman Comics by Mike Allred.

Thanks to Joe K. for the review copy and cover scan of this issue.
SYNOPSIS
Massimo tells Kanos that his motivation is not about money, but revenge. Kanos avoids the laser fire of the droids, forcing them to blast each other. He leaps onto the balcony where Massimo stands. Massimo begs for Kanos to spare his life. Kanos runs him through with his pike, letting him know that he's right. It's not about money, but honor.

Poll
The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
