View Full Version : TOR comics: Hype rumor gag or merited?

Recently in some novelty mag for guns, swords, motorcycles, resin figures (comics and anime) or other similar I recall seeing a preorder for a new SW comics series and upon looking at the pic itself it said Old Republic and subtitled Threat of peace. Being that it was 4am, at a pal's house after a party, and I was tired some weeks ago when I saw it, the memory is a bit hazy not surprisingly... Just a small off-to-the-side whatsit IIRC.

I have looked in Bud K and the like for the little thing since then but my efforts to find it have been to no avail.

Does anyone know for sure if there will be a SWTOR comics series to come (or NOT)? Certainly sounds like smart business.

At darkhorse.com they have SWTOR Threat of Peace issue 1 for a release date of July 7. There are 2 covers in the works by different artists. It seems that they are officially recreating the web comics. I would assume that they will be making a running series.

From what I've heard the July release is just a TPB of the online comic we've already seen. There is supposed to be a follow-on comic, however, I don't know if it will be in web-series form or in print.
