Star Wars Rebellion Issue #6 – Is this title back or is Dark Horse frakking with us? May 29, 2007

trackback

Dark Horse has done a MAJOR dis-service to its readers by crippling the Dark Times and the Rebellion series with inconsistent releases and titles that just seems to come out without any schedule.

Dark Times is back on schedule now and apparently so is Rebellion.

Issue # 6 is the first to come out in MONTHS and is a new story arc following the events of the Trade Paperback.

Yes it’s a cool story, but I’m hesitant to invest any emotional capital into this series until I see issues come out every month in a consistent fashion.

Perhaps the saddest part of Rebellion for the fools that run this title at Dark Horse is because this title has come out so irregularly they had to send out preview copies to a few ‘select’ individual in order to solicit them for letters to the editor.

Dark Horse is doing an excellent job with Legacy, beyond that in this 30th anniversary year of Star Wars the comic book publisher is shaming the franchise with inconsistent titles and with at least one MAJOR FLOP (Knights of The Old Republic).

Hopefully this new issue of Rebellion is the start of a comeback for Dark Horse, and if not I hope that Lucas Licensing is out there watching and considering moving Star Wars comics to another more reliable publisher.

Dark Times and Rebellion were always intended to be rotating mini arcs. The publishing scheduled has been exactly what they announced it would be — a Dark Times storyline, then a Rebellion storyline, and so on.

Really?! My local comic book seller had no idea about that..and beyond that the gap between issues in the same story arc of Dark Times has been many months.

That’s not exactly rotating..unless you want to call it rotating delinquency.

Dark Horse has dropped the ball on Dark Times and on Rebellion, plane and simple. Why else would they have to solicit people for the letters to the editor?
