Dark Horse Comics has two new Star Wars releases today, Star Wars #4 and the hardcover trade paperback of Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison (which has probably the best artwork I’ve ever seen in a Star Wars comic).

* Written by The Force Unleashed’s Haden Blackman!
* A beautiful, fully painted graphic novel in hardcover with dust jacket!

Only one new Star Wars release from Dark Horse Comics today, but it’s a big one. Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #5 brings the wonderfully written and illustrated mini-series to a close. Don’t miss out.

General Gentis’s plan to take over the fledgling Empire and depose the Emperor and Darth Vader is nearly complete. All that remains is to lure Grand Moff Tarkin to Coruscant and capture him. But Gentis has not reckoned with the power of the dark side—or with the secrets of the Ghost Prison. War has come to Coruscant, and even thousands of loyal cadets and troopers are no match for what Vader has unleashed!
