I've intended to create this thread for a while now, and I finally decided to do it - a Fan Club for the Dark Times comic series published by Dark Horse. Star Wars: Dark Times is a comic book series that ran from November of 2006 to December of 2013 (although some of the main protagonists were first introduced in Star Wars: Republic #79, published in November of 2005). The story is set immediately after the events in Revenge of the Sith and follows the lives of Bomo Greenbark (a former separatist soldier) the crew of the smuggler ship Uhumele, and several Order 66 Jedi survivors (Dass Jennir, K'Kruhk, Chase Piru, Zao and a handful of Jedi younglings) during the first days of the Sith ruled Galactic Empire. Dark Times is my favourite Star Wars story, so much so that it's safe to say I am still obsessed with it, almost five years after the last issue in the series was published. I got hooked with this comic due to its darker, more serious tone that offered a different take from the usual Star Wars experience. The characters broke the standard Star Wars model too - none of them were the special, super important and powerful Jedi of prophecy, nor were they the most wanted smugglers with the sleekest ship in the galaxy, always appearing in the midst of galaxy changing events. The story was smaller in scope and more intimate, with occasional gut wrenching events that made me sympathize with the characters like with few other from the Star Wars universe. The beautiful artwork is the icing on the cake. What Doug Wheatley did with the character designs, non-humans and humans alike, as well as with the world concepts and ship designs is astounding. I sometimes think that visually Dark Times is either too good for a comic book, or that most other comics don't meet the standard. Have you read Dark Times and if yes, what did you think? Loved it, liked it, found it to be pretty meh, disliked it or hated it? Which characters stood out to you the most? Anything specific that you expected from this series that you got or didn't get? Anything Dark Times related is fair game here!
