October 2003 Comics

The 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, Anakin Skywalker finds himself stranded behind enemy lines with the 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.

Star Wars: Republic #59 "Enemy Lines" is written by John Ostrander, Jan Duursema and Dan Parsons, with cover art by Andy Brase.

Before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, the Jedi were involved in another major battle: the Stark Hyperspace War. Smuggler and pirate Iaco Stark's "commercial combine" has disrupted the production of bacta, the most important healing agent in the galaxy. By cornering the market on bacta, Stark hopes to amass a fortune. 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 is written by John Ostrander, Davide Fabbri and Christian Dalla Vecchia. The trade paperback is scheduled to hit shelves on November 12.
