Dark Horse has a number of comics planned for late 2004 and early 2005. Here's a rundown of what was discussed at Comic-Con.

Clone Wars Adventures - There are currently three volumes planned. The first issue debuted earlier this month and focused on the Jedi Knights. The second issue is still being decided, although it will reprint the Free Comic Book Day story for those that may have missed it. The third issue will feature the Clone Troopers.

Republic - The Clone Wars will continue by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema. One upcoming storyline will feature Honoghr, the planet of the Noghri! Fans of the Expanded Universe may recall the creatures' appearance in the Timothy Zahn novels, and their history will be explored in this storyline starring Aayla Secura and Clone Commander Bly.

Empire - The focus will be taken off the Imperials for awhile, and instead focus on the heroes of the Rebellion. The Empire is not gone, as their presence will still be felt throughout the series.

Star Wars Tales - As previously reported, issue #21 will kick off the new format. The first issue will have a story from the Republic era, a story from the Empire era, and a New Jedi Order tale starring Kyle Katarn!

General Grievous - The new face of evil will get his own 4-issue mini-series by Chuck Dixon and Rick Leonardi. No details on the story yet, but this series is expected just prior to Episode III's release.

Obsession - As previously reported, this 5-issue mini-series by Haden Blackman and Brian Ching will focus on Obi-Wan Kenobi's quest to bring Asajj Ventress (last seen battling Obi-Wan on Rattatak) to justice. This series will have ties to both the third season of the animated micro-series and the Labyrinth of Evil novel.

Revenge of the Sith - The official adaptation of the upcoming movie will be presented by Miles Lane and Doug Wheatley. Naturally, story details are still under wraps, but this adaptation will run 4 issues and a collected edition will be available before the film's release.

Dark Horse Holocron - A series of books collecting everything Dark Horse has published into omnibus collections, each volume running 200-400 pages. For example, the entire Dark Empire series would be available in one volume. Not much is known beyond this, as it is still in the planning stages. May not be the final title.

Sounds like an exciting time to be a Star Wars comic book reader!
