C2E2 EXCLUSIVE: “Star Wars: Dark Times” Strikes Back

Posted: March 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

Set in an era just after the death of the Republic and the birth of Darth Vader and the Galactic Empire, Dark Horse’s “Star Wars: Dark Times” chronicled the bleak era when remnants of the Jedi Order were hunted to extinction, with many of the proud and noble Jedi forced to compromise their ideals when the Force seemed to desert them. Dass Jennir, one such Jedi Master, found himself utterly defeated and on the run before joining up with the crew of the Uhumele, a ship smuggling mysterious and valuable cargo. Their paths parted when Jennir revealed his Jedi training, and “Dark Times” alternated between the two casts — with Darth Vader playing an ever-ominous role.

This August, “Dark Times” returns in a new five-issue miniseries by the original creative team of writer Mick Harrison and artist Doug Wheatley, continuing in the series-of-miniseries format once the initial story reaches its conclusion.
