Dark Horse Comics has released some August Star Wars covers and details.

Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #4 (of 5)

Release Date: August 22

Writer: Haden Blackman
Artist: Agustin Alessio
Cover Artist: Dave Wilkins

It’s Vader versus the most dangerous inmates the Ghost Prison has to offer, and Cadet Tohm witnesses the Dark Lord at his fiercest—and most merciless. The lesson is not lost on the young man, and Tohm follows Vader’s lead, finding strength—and darkness—he never knew he possessed. He is well on his way to becoming the kind of officer for which the Empire will become known. But the biggest test still lies ahead—retaking the Imperial Palace from the insurgents. Today a fight . . . tomorrow a war!

Darth Maul: Death Sentence #2 (of 4)

Release Date: August 29

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Bruno Redondo
Cover Artist: Dave Dorman

It’s a perfect storm of mayhem as brothers Darth Maul and Savage Opress collide with an army of mercenaries, augmented by a team of visiting Jedi! The only thing that can make Darth Maul angrier than he is about the price on his head is having his brother captured by the man who put it there. If you thought two Sith were dangerous, wait until you see Darth Maul on his own!

Knight Errant: Escape #3 (of 5)

Release Date: August 8

Writer: John Jackson Miller
Penciller: Marco Castiello
Inker: Vincenzo Acunzo
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
Cover Artist: Benjamin Carré

The location of a powerful Sith relic is closer to being uncovered, and so is the fate of Jedi Kerra Holt’s lost family! Kerra’s knowledge has gotten a Sith reconnaissance team closer to the relic than would have been possible without her—but will her desire to find what happened to her family also bring more destruction to Sith territories? How long can she stay undercover and keep one step ahead of the team and their merciless leader?

Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse TPB

Release Date: October 24

Writer: John Ostrander
Penciller/Cover Artist: Stéphane Roux
Penciller: Stéphane Créty
Inker: Julien Hugonnard-Bert
Colorist: Wes Dzioba

Imperial power is at its height. With Palpatine on the throne and his chief enforcer, Darth Vader, leading fleets of Star Destroyers and legions of stormtroopers across the galaxy, the Empire is an unstoppable force for order and peace. But not every political problem requires military might; not every negotiation depends on a show of force. Sometimes all diplomacy needs to succeed is the right man, in the right place, with the willingness to get the job done. No matter what it takes. Collects Star Wars: Agent of the Empire—Iron Eclipse #1–#5.

Crimson Empire III: Empire Lost TPB

Writer: Mike Richardson
Penciller: Paul Gulacy

Cover Artist: Dave Dorman

Kir Kanos, the last surviving member of Emperor Palpatine’s Royal Guard, is ready to settle a score with Luke Skywalker and those others whom he blames for the death of his Emperor. But standing in Kanos’s path is his former adversary and almost love interest Mirith Sinn. And both of them have become pawns in a secret plot by an Imperial cabal!

There’s also the new release announced for the Lost Tribe of the Sith.

The Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral #1

Writer: John Jackson Miller
Artist: Andrea Mutti
