Fans rejoice! Dark Times
returneth! Randy Stradley and Doug Wheatley present another great storyline in this post-Order 66 world. While Doug is only taking care of covers in this arc, the interiors are done by the talented Gabriel Guzman (Kull, Conan
). In this storyline, Jedi Master K’Kruhk is on the run with a group of young Padawans. In a galaxy suddenly hunting Jedi, they are forced to land on an Imperial-run planet, hiding in the refugee camp, among other beings who were displaced by the Clone Wars. But K’Kruhk senses there is something wrong! Dark Times is by far one of the finest series being published by Dark Horse currently. Plus this issue is the 106th issue, continuing the numbering from Star Wars: Republic
, which means that in two more issues Dark Times
will have surpassed the Marvel run for longest running Star Wars
Also on sale today is the 2nd printing of Star Wars #1, the new smash hit from Brian Wood, Alex Ross and Carlos D'Anda! The new printing features a pristine cover of Alex Ross' beautiful art. But be warned, these copies are limited as the second print sold out as well! Look for a 3rd printing coming on Feb. 27, 2013.
