The latest comic from Dark Horse is Star Wars: Purge
, a one-shot issue that features the last stand of the Jedi. Beautifully illustrated by Doug Wheatley and Chris Chuckry (artists on the Revenge of the Sith
adaptation), this tale by John Ostrander takes place after Order 66 is still being carried out across the galaxy. As the Jedi are being hunted down by the new Dark Lord of the Sith, a small group gather together to decide what their next step should be. But Vader's revenge against the Jedi cannot be denied!
Darth Vader continues to wipe out the remaining members of the Jedi Order. What did you think a comic called Purge
would be about?
This issue features several background Jedi from the films and EU including Sia-Lan Wezz, who made her debut in the Invasion of Theed Adventure Game
. As a special tribute, Adam Hughes provides the cover for this issue, reuniting him with the character he designed for the game.
