The online comic, Threat of Peace, that was ongoing to introduce The Old Republic era to fans was slated to hit stands as a trade later this month (April.) When it ended not long ago, however, no signs of the trade could be seen on Dark Horse’s site or any other online shop, even though it had been announced it would be coming on April 19.
Reports now claim that the trade of Star Wars: The Old Republic Volume 1 – Threat of Peace will be hitting store shelves on May 5, 2010. The trade paperback, authored by BioWare’s Rob Chestney, containing art by Alex Sanchez, and colors by Michael Atiyeh, will have 96 pages from the web-comic.

Offering an exclusive first look at the era of Star Wars: The Old Republic, written by one of the writers behind LucasArts and BioWare’s wildly anticipated massive multiplayer online game, Threat of Peace unveils a galaxy on the brink of destruction three hundred years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic! For decades, the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire have been at war – the Sith have gained control of the Outer Rim, but their efforts to penetrate the Core Worlds have so far been thwarted. Now, representatives from both sides attempt to negotiate a peace treaty – but deception by the Sith puts the Jedi in an unfortunate position. The release of The Old Republic promises to be a Star Wars event of the highest order, a game-changing moment that will mobilize legions of fans to explore a never-before-seen piece of the Star Wars mythology. The story in this volume reveals the era for the first time, and is followed by bonus behind-the-scenes content found nowhere else!
