Dark Horse’s Vice President of Publishing Randy Stradley posted on the Dark Horse forums yesterday a nice little update on the current Star Wars comic schedule. The update indicates which series are planned to continue and for how long. Keep in mind this is all subject to change.
Star Wars — ongoing
Star Wars: Agent of the Empire — 5 to 8 issues a year
Star Wars: Dark Times — 5 issues a year
Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi — 5 to 8 issues a year
Star Wars: Knight Errant — ending after current arc
Star Wars: Blood Ties — ending after current arc
Star Wars: The Old Republic — ended for now
Star Wars: Darth Vader — 5 issues a year
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith — ending after current arc
Star Wars: To Be Announced 1 — ongoing
Star Wars: To Be Announced 2 — 8 issues
Randy mentions there may be some other surprises in store as well. Plus he commented about Dawn of the Jedi and how he would like to have seen it become an ongoing series…
I tried to talk John and Jan into making Dawn an ongoing, but Jan can only draw between eight and nine issues a year without killing herself, and neither wanted to do the book without the other. However, as you can see, there’s another ongoing in the works which will be announced in the fullness of time.
As we have periodically from the beginning of my run overseeing Dark Horse’s Star Wars titles, we’re shaking things up a bit — starting new series, bringing in new talent, and trying new things. No doubt change will remain as constant as it has always been.
You can see the full post here. I’m sad to see Knight Errant might be coming to an end after Escape, and with Lost Tribe of the Sith being slated for just the one arc, I’m hoping we’ll see John Jackson Miller listed for one of those “To Be Announced” series. That said, I’m almost certain one of those “To Be Announced” titles will include Tom Taylor and maybe his hinted at Luke Skywalker tale.
