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
