February, as in this February, i.e this month?I certainly hope so. :p Sounds like we'll see the first issue in a week or two as it says they will be released every other week at the official site.

I like. More lore for the actual game then.

Honestly, first we get weekly updates. Then we get video's. Now we get a webcomic. We rare overflown with cool TOR stuff. :)

If it means getting a bit more info on the story (or the background of it), then it's all fine by me. I read some Dark Horse Star Wars comics, and like them, so this is nice.

I am looking forward to getting a closer look at the story. I just can't wait for this to come out.
