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 Usagi Yojimbo part 1 by Stan Sakai & Jason Hvam and Spyboy: Wrassle Hassle part 2 by Pop Mhan, Norman Lee, Sanford Greene, Kris Kaufman & Dan Jackson, plus a poster for Superman/Aliens II: God War by Jon Bogdanove & Kevin Nowlan.

Thanks to Joe K. for the review copy and cover scan of this issue.
SYNOPSIS
The attacker turns out to be Jedi Alysun Celz, who claims that the dark Jedi, Et Rex, that she was transporting to the Council, killed the crew. Obi-Wan tells Anakin to stay with Celz while he goes and investigates.

He checks out the exterior of the ship and discovers Mynocks which he believes caused the crash. At that moment a blue creature with horns comes out of the shadows and confirms Obi-Wan's suspicions, but raises another question. How are he's going to get off this rock alive!

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.
