Second Blood Ties Miniseries Announced

In the first issue of the new comic series from Dark Horse, Star Wars: Blood Ties: Jango and Boba Fett, editor Randy Stradley announced that a second miniseries under the Blood Ties name will be released next, featuring new characters. In the Letter from the Editor in Blood Ties: A Tale of Jango and Boba Fett, Part 1 (of 4), Randy says:

“This was going to be a one-off miniseries about Jango and Boba Fett, but after working together for just one issue, writer Tom Taylor and artist Chris Scalf decided decided they wanted to continue the collaboration. So, next year you can look forward to another Blood Ties miniseries featuring another set of famous (or infamous!) Star Wars characters who share a blood bond.”

The Jango and Boba series is set to run through November 24th. Writer Tom Taylor and artist Chris Scalf will work on all four issues.

During the San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, Randy Stradley announced that eight new Star Wars comic series would be released in 2011. Up to this point 6 series that have yet to see a published issue will appear next year. Invasion and Dark Times could be included in Randy’s lineup. There will also be a special edition of Dark Empire, which will help raise money for artist Cam Kennedy, who is sadly losing his eyesight.
