Blood Ties – Boba Fett is Dead 4 Darth Maul – Death Sentence 1
Posted by Jay on July 25, 2012 at 06:23 AM CST
Rumors of Boba Fett's death seem to have been greatly exaggerated this week. Also, are you ready for the return of Darth Maul? It's a double dose of writer Tom Taylor this week in comics!

First up is Blood Ties–Boba Fett is Dead #4. The man behind the murder of Boba Fett has sent his army of mercenaries to kill Fett’s ex-wife and child, and Boba’s half-brother Connor Freeman. But what if Boba Fett isn’t quite as dead as everyone thinks? With beautiful painted art by Chris Scalf, this issue is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

But, if that weren't enough, you can read about the return of Darth Maul, and his team-up with his brother Savage Opress in Darth Maul–Death Sentence #1. Tom Taylor explores one of the coolest villains from the prequels in this new mini-series set after the events of Season 4 of The Clone Wars. The Jedi are searching for the two Sith and, after Maul and Opress cut a murderous swath through the Outer Rim, so is an army of mercenaries hired by a wealthy mine owner. Darth Maul has a price on his head, and for him there is only one way to deal with such a problem: go directly to the source! Run, don't walk to your nearest comic book shop to get a copy!

And, for the fans who live in the electronic realm, the digital comics available this week at digital.darkhorse.com include: Star Wars: Blood Ties - Boba Fett is Dead #4, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures Volume 9, Star Wars: Darth Maul - Death Sentence #1.

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.
