Official Star Wars Site has provided a look at
what Dark Horse Comics has in store for Star Wars fans in October.
Stormtrooper saboteurs, undercover Jedi, Anakin's dark secret and
bacta smugglers: here's a look at what Star Wars fans can
expect from Dark Horse Comics this fall.
Trooper TK-622, a stormtrooper transferred to the
newly-commissioned Death Star, is proud to do his duty in the
service of the Emperor, but he suspects that that may not be the
case for every member of the battle station's crew. Strange
"accidents" and equipment malfunctions point to the
presence of a saboteur, but can the trooper prove it before the
station goes into action above Yavin?
Star Wars: Empire #14 delivers a rare view of the days of
the Rebellion from the perspective of a soldier of the Empire. The
story is written by Jeremy Barlow and Tomas Giorello, and features
cover art by David Michael Beck. Star Wars: Empire #14 is
scheduled for release on October 1.
Liberator. Tyrant. Hero. Villain. Renegade. Visionary. Jedi. Sith
Lord. The enigmatic, charismatic Count Dooku is all of these things.
Posing as a renegade from the Republic, Jedi Quinlan Vos has been
given the assignment to earn Dooku's trust and learn his secrets.
When he discovers that Dooku's targets include Vos' birth planet of
Kiffu and his own people, the Guardians, Quin must decide how far he
is willing to go to protect his cover. Dooku, ever the master
manipulator, always has another card to play, and his goal is not
always what it seems. This is a story of the Clone Wars and the Jedi
seen from a very different perspective.
This double-sized Clone Wars special edition of Star Wars:
Jedi - Dooku is written by John Ostrander, Jan Duursema and Dan
Parsons, with cover art also by Jan Duursema. This issue is
scheduled for release on October 29.
In the aftermath of a battle on the desert moon of Aargonar,

last person in the galaxy that he wants to be with -- fellow Jedi
A'Sharad Hett from a Tusken Raider clan on their native Tatooine.
For Anakin, their struggle to make it back to the Republic's lines
also becomes a test of whether he can control his hatred of the
Tuskens, and whether or not he can keep the shameful secret of his
murder of the Tusken tribe.

Before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, the Jedi were involved in
another major battle: the Stark Hyperspace War. Smuggler and pirate

But other forces within the Republic have aligned themselves with
the Trade Federation, and are hoping to use Stark's aggression as an
excuse for military build-up.
It's up to the members of the Jedi Council to untangle the many
deceits and intrigues and bring the criminals to justice before the
galaxy is plunged into war. Star Wars: The Stark Hyperspace War

Vecchia. The trade paperback is scheduled to hit shelves on November
