Star Wars: Purge
Posted by Curto on January 9, 2006 at 12:43 PM CST
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.

You can check out an online preview of this issue here.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
