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 "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.

Thanks to Joe K. for the review copy and cover scan of this issue.
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.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
