Dark Horse has sent out solicitations for their August 2008 titles, including 3 Star Wars comics, a trade paperback, an all-new Indiana Jones series, and because we're fans of the Browncoats, we've even got some cool stuff from Serenity!

Darth Wyyrlok is the master of Sith lore and magic in Darth Krayt’s Sith order. He has also been Krayt’s confidant, spokesman, and friend. Now, seeing the further deterioration of his Master from the ravages of the Yuuzhan Vong bioforms, Wyyrlok attempts a dangerous journey into the Deep Core worlds to the birthplace of Lord Andeddu, an ancient Sith Lord, seeking to discover any secrets that might save Darth Krayt. Penetrating the Deep Core, however, is always hazardous and Wyyrlok must call upon his own core—his strength, skills, and beliefs—to simply survive.

On the dark surface of a desolate moon, Luke and Leia meet their first Jedi since Obi-Wan Kenobi, only to realize too late this Knight of the Old Republic is far different than their fallen friend—twisted by the Sith’s Muur Talisman and enraged by Darth Vader! Together, Luke and Leia must make a choice with far-reaching consequences, not just for themselves, but for the fate of the entire galaxy!

Following the destruction of the first Death Star, Luke Skywalker is the new, unexpected hero of the Rebellion. But the galaxy hasn’t been saved yet—Luke and Princess Leia are finding there are many more battles to be fought against the Empire and Darth Vader!

This latest Star Wars Omnibus reprints many of the early tales of the rebellion. First, we have Shadow Stalker, Tales from Mos Eisley, and River of Chaos, all of which are long out of print and have never before been collected! Then, Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, a story created by George Lucas and Alan Dean Foster before there were plans for any films past Star Wars: A New Hope. And last is Vader’s Quest, in which Vader learns the secret kept from him by Yoda and Obi-Wan: that he has a son!

With exotic locations, natural disasters, wild animals, ever-pesky Nazis, and a beautiful fortune hunter, Indy’s quest for the Tomb of the Gods could be his most amazing and historically disturbing escapade ever!

SERENITY LASER ENGRAVED ACRYLIC ORNAMENT

4" x 4" clear lucite cube
$16.99

Joss Wheden’s blockbuster Serenity continues to capture the attention of fans of fantastic adventure. Dark Horse is pleased to support the “browncoats” with the next in our series of Serenity themed ornaments.

We have scanned the Serenity ship and using the wonders of modern science, crafted it as a wire frame 3D image inside a 4" x 4" clear lucite cube. This process has allowed us to acheive an unprecedented level of accurate detail.

We are adding a mechanism of ribbon that can be glued to the cube for hanging display, but as with most ofther “tombstone”-style collectibles, it may be best displayed sitting on a window sill or over a small LED light base. The LED light, commonly available on the open market, is NOT a part of the package.

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.
