Dark Horse To Tell The Origin Of The Jedi In New Ongoing Series, And The Death Of Boba Fett

At the New York Comic Con Retailer’s Breakfast, courtesy of Diamond Comic Distributors, Dark Horse Comics announced a new Star Wars ongoing series, Dawn Of The Jedi, with issues 0 and 1 launching in February 2012, described as their coolest Star Wars comic ever. Written by John Ostrander, it will start at the beginning of the Star Wars timeline with the very beginning of the Jedi Knights, in a time before light sabres when they only fought with swords.

We can also look forward to a new Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic: War comic from John Jackson Miller in January, a Darth Vader: Ghost Prison five issue mini-series in May 2012 by Haydon Black, Rick Leonardi with a deluxe hardcover to come. Star Wars: Knight Errant Series 3 and Star Wars: Blood Ties, Tom Taylor, and Chris Scalf with the headline “Boba Fett Is Dead”.

And retailers who order 15 copies of any of the new Star Wars titles, will get 5% discount

Dark Horse also announced that they will be publishing a Star Wars/Serenity Free Comic Book Day flip book. And last year’s featured title, Avatar The Last Airbender will begin a new series, The Promise, starting in January.
