“For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times, before the Empire.”
–Ben Kenobi

I just picked up both issues #1 and 2 of Star Wars : Dark Times.

Apparently issue #2 was DELAYED. Issue #1 came out in early november while Issue #2 came out late last week (Jan 24). Starting a new series with such a gap is hardly a way to start a series.

But for me it’s not too bad since i got both issues a the same time and didn’t have to wait two months for an issue.

Now on to the good stuff and make no mistake about it, Dark Times is good stuff.

Plot is a bit predictable given the time period – which sometime close after the end of Episode III with jedi on the run and vader trying to figure out wtf is going on and what he’s supposed to be doing.

The artwork is spectacular with a photorealistic airbrush kind of approach that give this title a very sleek and somewhat unique look in the modern Star Wars pantheon of KOTOR and Legacy.

I am looking forward to issue #3 but i’m putting Dark Horse on notice – if it’s two months late I’m not likely to buy it.
