Last week Dark Horse Comics released the hardcover collection of Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison. That’s being followed up this Wednesday with the start of a new miniseries, Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin. Someone has been sending assassins after Vader. The first eight proved no match for the Sith Lord. Will the Ninth Assassin fare better?
The final collection of Knight Errant also releases on Wednesday. Escape takes place after the Knight Errant novel (which I highly recommend), and contains revelations about Jedi Knight Kerra Holt’s past. The Knight Errant series is impressive in large part due to its world building. The Sith space that Kerra is stranded in and the Lords that rule it are all incredibly interesting. Now that the whole series is out in trade paperbacks it’s a great time to check it out if you missed it when they were coming out in single issues.
As always, keep an eye on our EU Release Schedule to see what’s ahead in the Expanded Universe!
Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #1 (of 5)
Eight assassins hired to murder Darth Vader—eight assassins dead. Now the man who enlisted them seeks a ninth assassin. The price? A cost higher than all the credits in his bottomless coffers. But when it comes to avenging his son, no sacrifice is too great to acquire the one man who can kill the Dark Lord of the Sith . . .
The Hunt for Darth Vader is on!
Knight Errant Volume 3: Escape
Joining a team hunting for a relic of extraordinary evil, Kerra hopes their search will reveal the truth about her missing parents—before it leads the Sith to a tool of ultimate destruction! But Kerra’s desire to find her lost family is clouding her judgment. If the relic falls into Sith hands, the galaxy is doomed! Collects the five-issue miniseries.
