This is especially true when you love both forms of the Star Wars saga. You may be surprised but there are actually some great comic books out there that have to do with the Star Wars universe.
The Dark Horse Comics publisher has several different titles that you can choose from in the world of Star Wars. If you like Star Wars you will probably enjoy these dark horse comics. Below I have listed a few of my favorite titles.
Vader’s Last Stand
After the Attack by Darth Vader comes” Vader’s Last Stand”. This dark horse comic book written by Greg Ruckley, is part two of the Darth Vader story. After the battle at the end of Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader meet again and this time Vader kills Luke. This graphic novel is full of action and adventure. It is filled with star wars concepts such as bad guys meeting good guys, Vader being a symbol of power for the dark side, and of course Luke leaving the galaxy.
“Star Wars: After Star Wars” is a continuation of the original Star Wars movie” Revenge of the Sith”. This time around the original trilogy gets a makeover, basically getting one third of the story filled in. This book picks up right after the events of Revenge of the Sith. This particular comic book series was a spinoff of the popular Revenge of the Sith film franchise.
The Mandalorian Princess
“The Mandalorian Princess” was written by Cavan Collins is the first published book in a new series. This is a love story between two Mandalorians that were featured in the films. The main character is a bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Another interesting character is Jaxxon. This book is written as a prequel to future movies. It will feature characters that we haven’t seen before like Fett, Amidala, and Boba Fett.
The second release of Star Wars new comics that has come out involves two more popular characters from the original trilogy. One is Aphra, and the other is Senator Organis. Aphra is a new Senator that was introduced in Attack of the Clones. She is the daughter of Jai Corridor and his wife Tionnel. This comic book comes from IDW Publishing.
The last of the new comic books is written by Greg Pak and drawn by Steve Seeley. It is the tie-in to Revenge of the Sith and it features a Jedi knight and Dark Lord Darth Vader. The storyline revolves around Aphra and Vader’s relationship and how Vader became a dark knight. This particular comic book from IDW comes from the publisher Top Cow.
There are still plenty more that I have yet to find about the new Star Wars comics that have been released. These are just a few that I had already read and really enjoyed. I am a huge Star Wars fan and these new comics have helped me enjoy even more of this fantastic genre. They also act as a bit of a background noise for me while I’m reading my daily comic. It’s nice to not be reading about the latest movie, but rather to pick up a story and escape into another world. Star Wars new comics are fun and exciting and I look forward to reading them all.
There are plenty of other titles that have been created for the new line of Star Wars. I am sure that there will be many more that will be introduced over time as well. As with anything, you will get what you pay for with these new Star Wars comic books.
