Synopsis :

One of the Empire's most valuable secrets is about to be compromised unless Darth Vader can get to it in time! This is the all-action conclusion to "The Ahakista Gambit"!

Deep inside an Imperial stronghold, a team of spies led by Wyl Tarson fight for their lives. Loyal to the Rebel cause, each is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to complete the mission, none realizing that Tarson marches to the orders of someone far more sinister than the Alliance. For Tarson, this is the moment of truth-will he betray those who trusted him with everything? One thing is certain, once Vader arrives, few will be left alive.

A compelling new story set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back exploring the Rebel Alliance's desperate struggle against the Galactic Empire, delivered in high-octane, widescreen style by writer Rob Williams (Cla$$war, SW Tales) and artist Michel Lacombe (SW Tales, SW Empire)

Dark Times #7: Parallels #2 est prévu pour le 26 Septembre !
Il sera réalisé par Mick Harrison et Dave Ross, la couverture est de Zach Howard.

Synopsis :
As the crew of the Uhumelé heads for what they hope will be a big payday, Bomo Greenbark learns the reasons why pilot Crys Taanzer hates not just the Republic and the Empire, but even the Jedi. Events during the Clone Wars forced her to make a decision that she has lived to regret. And, though she cannot know it, her decision has had ramifications for Jedi Master K'Kruhk, as well.

But the real danger still lies ahead, as betrayal is piled upon betrayal. In the dark times, putting your trust in anyone, it seems, means putting your life on the line!

New, unexplored territory following Revenge of the Sith!

Enfin, Knights of the Old Republic #21: Daze of Hate #3 est également prévu pour le 26 Septembre !

Synopsis :

Negotiations between the Republic and the Mandalorians come to a head in this unthinkable conclusion to the compelling "Daze of Hate" story arc!

Aboard his massive flagship the Arkanian Legacy, Lord Adasca believes his plan to become nothing less than the most powerful being in the galaxy is about achieve fruition. If he is to be stopped, fugitive Padawan Zayne Carrick must risk it all with a quickly conceived and untested scheme that requires help from none other than his arch-nemesis and former teacher-Jedi Master Lucien! Yet as these two former enemies spring into action amidst Adasca's carefully controlled meeting of the Republic and the Mandalorians, another plot is set into motion-one that will seal the fate of several major players forever!

Continuing the ongoing monthly series set nearly four thousand years before the rise of the Empire and the fall of Anakin Skywalker (and seven years prior to the events in the Knights of the Old Republic video game).

A great starting point for anyone interested in following the Star Wars saga beyond the films.

Desperate to calm his nightmarish visions of his lover Padmé Amidala's death, Skywalker falls under the thrall of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and his promises of power beyond all imagining. Once a slave to the dark side, Skywalker helps carry out a tragic conspiracy against the Jedi that will see the Republic transformed into an Empire.
