Two new Star Wars releases from Dark Horse today. First up, Knight Errant: Deluge #3 hits stores.

Jedi Knight Kerra Holt’s elation at the prospect of being part of a team again has quickly deflated now that she realizes the motives of the Republic’s Devil Squadron are a far cry from her own. But with crime lord Zodoh the Hutt returning to Kerra’s home planet and the Sith Lord Daiman about to enter the fight, Kerra must sort out her allies or be destroyed!

Writer: John Jackson Miller
Penciller: Iban Coello
Inker: Sergio Abad
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
Cover Artist: Joe Quinones

Also out is The Clone Wars: Strange Allies.

With so many Jedi Generals occupied with the Clone Wars, assignments that would usually go to Knights or Masters are falling to Jedi in training–in this case, masterless Padawan Nuru Kungurama. Accompanied by his squad of clone troopers and a hulking swoop biker named Gizz, Nuru’s job begins as a routine protection detail but soon evolves to include a mystery massacre, the hijacking of a space freighter, and the kidnapping of a group of orphaned younglings!

Writer: Ryder Windham
Artist: Ben Dewey
Colorist: Mae Hao
Cover Artist: Stéphane Roux

Knight Errant: Deluge #2 hits stores today with a brand new penciller and inker for the interior artwork.

Answering a distress call, Jedi Knight Kerra Holt has returned to her Sith-held home planet to liberate as many slaves as possible with a single shuttle. She didn’t expect to meet a squadron of starfighters from the Republic! With the help of the Devil Squadron, Kerra can go on the offensive, and the entire planet will have a chance at liberation! But there is more to the Devils than it first appears. A scheming Hutt with an evil agenda is infiltrating the planet, and the Sith Lord Daiman is just getting wind of what is happening on his planet!

Writer: John Jackson Miller
Penciller: Iban Coello
Inker: Sergio Abad
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh

Civil war has broken out on Telos IV. As the governor rallies his military, Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn struggles desperately to uncover the reason for the planet’s unrest, in hope of stopping the war . . .But Qui-Gon’s troubled Padawan isn’t helping: his homecoming to Telos has been anything but happy, and the recent events–including the horrific death of a family member-have fueled his growing anger. This time, though, Qui-Gon is the target!

John Jackson Miller has posted the production notes for Knight Errant: Deluge #1 on his blog. If you’ve already read Deluge #1 then I highly recommend checking out the production notes as they provide a lot of insight into the comic (the production notes contain a lot of spoilers). John explains how the second comic arc came into being as well as some explanations on Captain Jenn Devaad, Aquilaris, Kerra Holt’s emotions in Deluge #1, Zodoh the Hutt and his tie to The Star Wars Atlas, ship designs, and some trivia. You can check read the production notes here.
