Just a friendly reminder, yesterday saw the release of Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi #1. Dark Horse’s latest Star Wars series focuses on the era of the first Jedi, before the force was divided between light and dark. During this time, Jedi exist as an order of warrior monks who strive to maintain peace and balance. The initial arc surrounds the coming of a stranger said to bring an end to the balance by heralding a new era of conquest and exploration.
The first issue is part of a five issue mini-series, that’s currently scheduled to be released over the course of the next several months, but while the series as a whole will be treated as on-going, the releases won’t always be on a monthly schedule. If you were a fan of Star Wars: Legacy, you’ll be pleased to know that writer John Ostrander, and artist Jan Duursema helm the project. You can pick up a copy at your local comics shop, or digitally via Dark Horse Digital.
