More comics on the way

Here is some info from the CBR website about the new Dark Horse series, "Star Wars: Dark Times – Fire Carrier":

"CBR News has learned that starting that month, Dark Horse will launch the new five-issue mini series "Star Wars: Dark Times – Fire Carrier" by Randy Stradley and Gabriel Guzman under covers by Doug Wheatley. Set in the bleak era of Empire rule between the two film trilogies, this particular comic will focus on Jedi Master K’Kruhk – a surviving warrior on the run from Darth Vader who must hide two Padawans from death on a planet under the boot of the Empire.

Star Wars: The Essential Atlas

I´m a huge fan of maps. Almost anything that you can chart, here I am, ready to check it! I recently discovered that Dan Wallace and Jason Fry have made a pretty good job mapping the most famous galaxy of all times, and I would like to recommend this wonderful book to all maps, planets and of course, Star Wars fans.
Every planet name, system or nebula will now be easy to spot. As any book as its limitations, the authors had the excellent idea of making an appendix, available for download here, where you can find all known star systems in the Star Wars galaxy.

I hope you enjoy the journey! Click the pictures for more info.
May the Force be with you.

Star Wars #1

Dark Horse has decided to bring it all back into the beggining. Together, writer Brian Wood and artist Carlos D´Anda put effort to bring us back the first days of the Star Wars universe. As they say:
"This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! We’re taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!"

I don´t know if all the series covers will be Alex Ross´ making, but the first one is a thumbs up! 

Let´s wait for the 9th of January to check how the new action will be going.
