    with darth vader and the lost cammand and legacy: war ending. I thought I would start a thread for all star wars comics begining with JEDI: The Dark Side #1 which is set before phantom menace the art looks fantastic and the writing is good look forward to how this goes.

    I'm guessing there will be more Old Republic mini-series coming along the way given the games coming out and whatnot.

    There was a Chewbacca series about a decade ago. It was sort of an anthology though of short Chewie stories told via flashbacks, with the main story taking place shortly after Vector Prime.

    I'd like to see more of Chewbacca's development from Clone Wars soldier to smuggler. The novel Dark Lord sort of started him down that path.

    Dark Horse is going back to the way they originally used to do Star Wars comics, IMO. A monthly ongoing book spanning 50 issues like Knights of the Old Republic and Legacy were once unheard of back then. Instead, you'd get a series of individual minis under those particular titles...

    There are still long series like Knight Errant and Invasion.

    Actually those were 5-issue minis that spawned sequels.

    Star Wars: Knight Errant
    Star Wars: Knight Errant Deluge (upcoming)

    Star Wars: Invasion
    Star Wars: Invasion Rescues
    Star Wars: Invasion Revelations (upcoming)

    It's similar to how Dark Horse did early Star Wars minis like Dark Empire and Crimson Empire, both of which had sequels.

    Dark Times and the recently launched Jedi are expected to be released in this format as well (if anything, though, Jedi is really a returning title as it was originally a series of one-shots).

    Come on both Invasion and Errant look like long-runing comic series interrupted ala Dark Times.

    What you mean to say is that Invasion and Knight Errant are comics released as individual minis rather than as regular monthly books. Dark Times was a regular monthly book that later shifted to the mini-series format.

    It's just Dark Horse going back to way they used to do Star Wars comics really.

    the longest title runs usually run for 50 issues more or less on any title in the dark horse continuity.
