See, she’s the one who betrayed Han to the Empire in the first place… Oh, and did we mention that Vader was on his way?

Star Wars Tales #21
Writers: Rob Williams, Shane McCarthy, Nathn P. Butler
Artists: Brandon Badeaux, James Raiz
Cover: Lee Bermejo

This is it—the beginning of a new direction for Star Wars Tales! Stepping away from the shorter, sillier Star Wars stories, with this issue Tales goes full-tilt toward a more exciting and sophisticated storytelling style. Cla$$war writer Rob Williams and Man of Steel artist Brandon Badeaux team up to bring you the story of Darca Nyl—a Jedi wandering the galaxy’s Outer Rim hunting for revenge and hiding a deadly secret. Writer Shane McCarthy presents a rag-tag group of convicts and cutthroats flying for the Empire’s glory in the feared TIE Fighter squadron called “Black Eight.” And Kyle Katarn, star of the hit video game Jedi Outcast, goes toe-to-toe with the vile Yuuzhan Vong, in an action-packed tale by Nathan P. Butler and James Raiz (Tokyo Storm Warning).

• Cover by Lee Bermejo (Batman/Deathblow; Batman: Gotham Knights)
• New-reader friendly—each story is self-contained and easily accessible.

Star Wars: Republic #69
The Dreadnaughts Of Rendili (1 of 3)
Writer: John Ostrander
Penciller: Jan Duursema
Inker: Dan Parsons

While Jedi Masters Saesee Tiin and Plo Koon fight to prevent a fleet of ships from falling into Separatist hands, Obi-Wan Kenobi discovers that the Separatists are not without dissension in their own ranks! On board the drifting hulk of a massive research ship, Obi-Wan finds himself taking sides with dark Jedi Quinlan Vos—who is wanted for the murder of a Senator—against another foe.

Vos was once his friend, and the other enemy is one with whom Obi-Wan has crossed swords before. But has Obi-Wan been too hasty in deciding the lesser of two evils? Has Quin become the heartless killer everyone believes him to be? And will he help Obi-Wan escape the apparent death trap into which they fall, or abandon him to save his own skin?

As we enter the home stretch leading to next year’s Episode III release, the events in Republic are coming to a collision point that is not to be missed!

A young Imperial lieutenant learns all service comes at a price when his small company of Stormtroopers is attacked by thousands of angry aliens.
