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 "News 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 Spyboy: Wrassle Hassle part 1 by Norman Lee, Pop Mhan, Sanford Greene & Daniel Jackson and B.P.R.D. part 3 by Christopher Golden, Tom Sniegoski, Ryan Sook & Dave Stewart, plus a poster for Star Wars: Jango Fett - Open Seasons by Ramon Bachs & Raul Fernandez.

SYNOPSIS
On an asteroid in sector 759 of the Hoth System, the Republic Cruiser Radiant IX sends out an automated distress call that is answered by Obi-Wan Kenobi and his padawan Anakin Skywalker. They enter the ship, seeing a dead pilot, crew and the smell of ozone.

Opening the door where the smell is coming from, Anakin is blasted by a stun beam. Obi-Wan quickly ignites his saber and disarms the attacker. He grabs the attacker and demands to know who they are.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
