Dark Horse Comics is looking to own April for Expanded Universe fans, with at least one new release each week. This week, on Wednesday, April 3rd, Dark Times: Fire Carrier #3 hits comic shops and the Dark Horse Comics app. Things just keep getting worse for Jedi Master K’Kruhk and the group of young padawans he is trying to keep safe. Now the Empire and the local militia are both after the group as they head into the ‘Valley of Death.’ It’s also interesting to note that the cover for this issue bills it as a ‘108th Issue Spectacular!‘ If that sounds like an April Fool’s joke, I promise it’s not. Dark Times is a continuation of the Republic comic series and keeps the numbering from that series going on the inside cover.
If you want an early look at what Dark Horse has coming later this month, including new issues of current series and collected editions of previous stories, check out our EU Release Schedule.

Now, marked for death by both factions, they must find a place of safety. But how does one escape the dark times?
