There are a lot of comics to choose from this week, with
two one new issue, a new digest, and a new collection releasing on Wednesday. Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #3 takes the most recent Vader focused story to it’s halfway point, while Legacy #4 brings Ania Solo and company to the penultimate issue of their first arc. The Clone Wars – The Smuggler’s Code is a new digest-size comic telling an Obi-Wan Kenobi story, and the Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral collection is also out this week.
Update – Thanks to Taral on the forums for pointing out that while Dark Horse’s website said Legacy #4 would out this week at the time this article was posted, it’ll actually be releasing on the 26th.
If that wasn’t quite enough comics for you, take a look at the EU Release Schedule to see Dark Horse Comics’ September solicitations.
Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #3
Darth Vader’s search for the culprits behind an assassination attempt on the Emperor leads to a shattered Star Destroyer floating lifeless above a mysterious moon. On the ground he finds no survivors—instead ancient ruins, and frightening inhabitants. All the while, a hunter follows, waiting for the moment to strike!
The Clone Wars – The Smuggler’s Code
When he encounters a criminal from his past, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi strikes out, determined to fulfill a promise he made to himself as a young Jedi: to bring in this fugitive on his own! While on the trail, Obi-Wan earns a favor from a local smuggler, but her devotion to working for her own benefit may be more trouble for Obi-Wan than her help is actually worth!
Lost Tribe of the Sith – Spiral
An ambitious Sith rebel, Spinner, is about to upset the balance of a lost tribe of Sith. When he is arrested for treason and sent away on a prisoner vessel, thoughts of overcoming his station, destroying the Tribe, and even finding a way to escape into the galaxy lead Spinner to a powerful, long-forgotten weapon. A rival stowaway Sith on that same vessel has her own ideas about the future of the Tribe. They don’t need eradication; they need a new leader—her! Collects Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #1–#5.
