Dark Times  Fire Carrier 3
Posted by Jay on April 4, 2013 at 06:56 AM CST
While it may look like a run-of-the mill issue of Dark Times long time Star Wars comic fans know the truth! One Hundred and Eight issues ago, in 1998, Dark Horse started a new Star Wars comic, and while that title morphed into Star Wars: Republic and then into Dark Times, the numbering has remained consistent. So, sixteen years after it debuted (as many years between the release of Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace), a consistently numbered Star Wars comic has bested the enviable Marvel Comics run for their Star Wars title (which went 107 issues)!

So congratulations to Randy Stradley, Gabriel Guzman and Doug Wheatley on their current issue that sees Jedi Master K'kruhk saving the few remaining padawans from an Imperial refugee camp. Darth Vader's on his tail, and he and master Zao need to be careful or they too will be purged!

And, for the fans who live in the electronic realm, the digital comics available this week at digital.darkhorse.com include: Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi - Prisoner of Bogan #4, as well as Star Wars: Dark Times - Fire Carrier #3.

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.
