EU Releases This Week: June 26th- July 3rd


This week was filled with comic releases EU fans.  Clone Wars: In Service of the Republic the comic digest has been out for a while depending on your comic supplier, but for you comic fans who couldn't get an early copy your time has come.

The long anticipated Dark Times continues.  You might recall this issue was going to be released back in December.  Things had conspired against the Dark Times fans leaving their comic in the dark for far too long.  But no more!  #17 is here and Jennir is doing his thing once again!

Also, fans of the Solo children rejoice!  The Solo twins will once more accompany Finn Galfridian as he continues his adventure through the New Jedi Order story line in Invasion Rescues #2.

We saw the Legacy series draw one issue closer to its final issue with #49.  That's right, one more issue of Legacy and the series will have ended, bringing with it an early end to this part of the Legacy Era.  It's been a fun ride Cade Skywalker, lets hope for a spin off.

Jedi Kit Fisto and Plo Koon take on a daring assault mission with a squad of tough Republic commandos on the ice planet Khorm.

Dark Times:

Star Wars: Dark Times #17 "Blue Harvest" Part 5 (of 5) Written by Mick Harrison; Pencils and Cover by Douglas Wheatley; Colors by Chris Chuckry On sale June 30; 40 pages

Betrayed, beaten, and half drowned, former Jedi Dass Jennir clings to life while the town he vowed to save is torn by gang warfare. His only allies have been imprisoned, tortured, or shot. It looks like the bad guys might win this time... except for one thing: a Jedi never gives up. Dark Horse Comics promises "bad-assery on an epic scale" in this issue.

New and vital knowledge sends Finn Galfridian with Jacen and Jaina Solo on a mission to the planet of Artorias. Though Finn does not know if his father, Caled, lives, if there is any chance, he must be warned of new dangers. It's a hot and dangerous ride to Artorias, and the occupying Yuuzhan Vong are ready with a toothsome, ravaging welcome... Meanwhile, Kaye and Nina, board their newly acquired Vong ship, embark on their own mission. It's one they can't refuse: rescuing captives held on a dead planet. There is no telling what peril will meet the rescue party...

And, emboldened by their success against the Mon Calamari and the Hutts, the Sith plan an attack against Admiral Gar Stazi and the Galactic Alliance. There's no stopping the galaxy's descent into all-out war. The end is near!

Dark Horse continues to thrill as things slow down before the Celebration 5 "Big News" gets here.  New series on the horizon, set in the past, some of the Fett family history to be explored and much more!  But when it comes to Star Wars: Legacy, keep your eyes glued to the pages, this one is about to end in a BANG!
