Only 3 pages? The art is very good, but I can't really say anything more until we see the next part - it's not mentioned much more than fluff.

But, it seems, that as usual, the Sith are intent on deception (so no surprises there).

Short and sweet, but not bad at all. It is of interest to see the Sith Imperial Uniform (which I hope to have my character wearing :D).

I think I may just follow this series after all! Oh, and (not sure if a spoiler tag is necessary, but hey) with Alderaan being seen - I wonder is that a hint of it being in the game?

Three pages? They call that an issue? I read the whole thing in less than a minute!

I know, 3 pages is ridiculous. I was expecting a whole lot more than that. Not too impressed with the art style either. I was hoping for some quality Jan Duursema. :/ Oh well, at least it's free.

I expected 3 pages like most web comics, but I liked the art, only problem was it wasn't quite finished imo. Agree on the Jan thing though, her and Dustin weaver are the best SW artists :)

I was also disappointed with the length, I was expecting the length to be similar to a regular comic issue. I'm happy with the art style though and it's free so can't complain too much.

You guys didn't know they were only going to be three pages long? I'm pretty sure it was mentioned when the series was first announced. If not, I have no idea why I've always known.

Yeah, it's far too early to judge.

Looks like it will be something along the lines of a webcomic than a traditional comic

hmm, at least the first 3 pages made it blatantly obvious as to why it's titled 'Threat of Peace'

Nice art. And nice to be getting some more detail on the background of the game. For a free comic, it is a good, but short, start.

Looking forward to more.

Too short, but art was pretty good.

Yeah, I didn't expect anything that short. Can't really judge something on three pages, so we'll have to wait and see what the other "issues" bring.

For one, I don't think the art is bad. I've seen better from Dark Horse, but I can live with it.

I came across this short comic when checking out the site. It is probably going to be like comic previews on the www.darkhorse.com and we will have to buy the comic to find out the rest.
