New comic series!!! Dark Times!!!!
 
Click!

The dark times are here. Even as the worlds of the former Republic are drawn into the iron grip of Palpatine’s Empire, the galaxy seems adrift in a sea of chaos, lawlessness, and despair.

On Coruscant, Darth Vader waits for his Master to reveal his vision for the future. But is there a plan beyond obtaining power? On New Plympto, Jedi Master Dass Jennir leads a Nosaurian army in a war they have already lost. Is this what in now means to be a Jedi?

Dark Times #1 is the gateway to a new era in Star Wars history, an era where the future is grim, evil is on the rise, and all paths seem to lead nowhere…

Still thinks if he looks like legolas, he should at lease use a gun that looks like a little 82A1.

But yeah that looks like a P90 TR. Though I think the laser mount should be under the barrel. Oh, an aimpoint looks better for the targeter.

STAR WARS: DARK TIMES #2—THE PATH TO NOWHERE part 2 (of 5)

WELLES HARTLEY (W), MICK HARRISON (W), DOUGLAS WHEATLEY (A), and RONDA PATTISON (C)

On sale Nov. 29
FC, 32 pages
$2.99
Ongoing

Despite his acceptance of the Sith ways, Darth Vader is shocked to find the Empire—and himself—complicit in an evil he thought he had put behind him . . .

A Separatist freedom fighter deals with the realization that the sacrifice made by his brothers-in-arms has been for nothing—and that their families are paying the price for their resistance…

The crew of a smuggler’s ship is forced to take sides in a conflict they have sought to avoid—and which has already changed the course of all their lives…

The dawn of the Empire plunges the galaxy into dark times, and every direction leads to danger!

• Moving into the new, unexplored territory of the time period immediately following Revenge of the Sith.

• References the events in the Del Rey novel Dark Lord.

Hmmm... I guess that's the end of the Republic series, since this is essentially where it picks up.

They've just put a few weird addons on it to make it more like a blaster and less like an SMG, they did the same thing with the Mauser C96/Hans Blaster.

I have a feeling this is Jula Shryne and the crew of the Drunk Dancer from Dark Lord:The Rise of Darth Vader.

Hmm... this may be a good time to get back into comics... I pretty much gave up on them towards the end of the 90s... though I did end up buying Crimson Empire off of ebay...
