    According to what we're hearing, that's exactly what the live action series will cover.

    I'm actually looking forward to the leap-frogging thing of Rebellion for 5 then Dark Times for 5. It gives them a chance to lock down both arcs so that they don't clash with anything else happing (ie. TV!) and also a chance to get some tie-in's too with Coruscant Nights for Dark Times and the new Tim Zahn book for Rebellion. All the while we get the steady run of KOTOR and Legacy, and possibly a third later on, so I'm happy as a pig in?? mud. Viva La Dark Horse.

    Sounds like a lot of fun; October is too long to wait!

    Labyrinth of Evil tie-ins? Awesome :). I love it when the comics and novels meet.

    It's nice to see that a relatively new character like Dass might be driving the new story. Quinlan was good, but enough already. I'm sure he'll get a new chance to shine in the upcoming TV series.

    Cover for issue #2, though I don't know where it's from. Looking awesome regardless.

    Those are, of course, Imperial V-wings, but that freighter looks familiar, too. Is it an established design?

    I don't think I've seen it before, but it looks like it may be CEC build...



    COL SANDURZ: Lord Vader.

    DARTH VADER: What?

    COL SANDURZ: You're needed on the bridge, sir.

    DARTH VADER: Knock on my door. Knock next time.

    COL SANDURZ: Yes, sir.

    DARTH VADER: Did you see anything?

    COL SANDURZ: No, sir. I didn't see you playing with your sapceships again.

    DARTH VADER: Good.

    :p

    The ship design looks reminicent of the Mos Espa Ship that Qui-Gon passes by after taking care of the Sith probe droid in the deleted scene in TPM (was also a WTS canidate); though it's not the same exact ship type.

    BTW, the logo for "Dark Times" is featured on the cover of October's "Previews." Fairly standard stuff really.

    NICE cover for #2 =P~

    AWESOME!!!This serie has got it al! Sith, Clone troops, Stormies, Jedi, Ep 3 stuff, Original trilogy! Hope the artists wil come up with new clone commanders and clone troopers. And I hope there will be no Imperial Hands and Inquisitors in this one because vader can handle all those jedi himself!!!

    It's called a Nimbus. V-wing is a nickname.

    So, what's the expected overlap (if any) between Dark Times, Last of the Jedi and the live-action TV series?

    This seems to be starting in the first year after ROTS, concurrent with Dark Lord to some degree.

    Last of the Jedi, IIRC, starts a year after ROTS. And the TV show we don't know yet.
