Finally, we’ve reached the release date of the first issue of Vector, Knights of the Old Republic #25, which is reportedly on sale today! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Look for a review of that coming up soon! Also coming out today is Dark Times #8, Parallels part 3 of 5. I sent in a fan letter after #2 was released, so I’ll most likely end up buying this one to see if it got on the fan page.

I think Vector would be a good spot for someone new to comics to start off at. You’ll get to have a taste of each of the different Star Wars lines Dark Horse is publishing, all in one cohesive story arc. Dark Times is another story. If you haven’t picked up the previous issues of Parallels, I’d suggest waiting it out until the next arc starts. While I like the series overall, Parallels isn’t turning out to all I had originally hoped it would be.

 I’ll be back soon with some reviews and release dates for February, so as always, stay tuned!

Well, I’m not sure if it’s been deemed “official” yet, but apparently part of the synopsis (the summary of the story on the back of the book) of Revelation has been leaked onto the Internet. It’s already on all the major fan sites, so I decided to post it. Take it with a grain of salt.

In his new mantle as Sith Lord, Jacen Solo’s dark powers reach a peak as he
continues to crush opposition across the warring galaxy and bring his dream
of a new order closer to fruition. But those who once fought at his side now
turn against him, and as his unexpected enemies rally to the confederacy,
Ben Skywalker discovers the full and terrible truth of how his mother died.

Remember: this was leaked on a forum. Not always the most solid source of information. Also, with this being the second to last book in the series, why is Ben  just now coming to terms with the death of his mother? It seems as if the synopsis of Revelation would be a little more… revealing then this. Also, this is only part of a synopsis, judging by it’s size.

Also this week, the cover art of Drew Karpyshyn’s sequel to Darth Bane: Path of Destruction was released this week. It looks like Rule of Two will be the official title of this one, removing suspicion that it was a temporary title.
