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!

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!

Jedi – The Dark Side #4 (of 5) hits stores today.

The situation on Telos IV is getting darker: sabotage, assassination attempts, secret meetings, undercover agents. But right now, Master Qui-Gon Jinn’s main concern is controlling his headstong Padawan. The homecoming on Telos has proved incredibly difficult for the proud and bitter Xanatos. His difficulties in reconnecting with his father and sister are putting the team of Jedi in peril as they near the shocking facts behind the burgeoning civil war . . .

Today Jedi – The Dark Side #3 hits comic stores. Written by Scott Allie, illustrated by Mahmud Asrar, colored by Paul Mounts, and cover art by Stéphane Roux.

On Telos IV, a priestess has been assassinated, and the planet is on the verge of civil war. Only Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Xanatos can protect the planet’s leader-who just happens to be Xanatos’s father-and stop the insurgents. But Xanatos is succumbing to his own long-buried resentments and may soon be more of a hindrance than a help.

Twenty years before his fateful meeting with Anakin Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn had his first encounter with the dark side . . .

Dark Horse posted an interview with Randy Stradley and Scott Allie today as part of their regular Star Wars Friday feature. Randy Stradley conducted the interview, with Scott Allie answering the questions. Scott Allie is the writer for the current Star Wars comic series Jedi – The Dark Side. The interview covers why Scott Allie chose to do a Qui-Gon story, how he does the Yoda dialogue, and his dream project involving Count Dooku and cannibals. While short, some of the answers are pretty enjoyable, so be sure to check it out. You can see the full interview here on Dark Horse’s website.

Interview with Jedi – The Dark Side writer Scott Allie

Scott Allie, writer for Jedi – The Dark Side, was gracious enough to answer our questions about Twitter, continuity, and Qui-Gon Jinn.

Here’s a snippet:

Qui-Gon is this wise and brilliant Jedi, obsessed with having a deep relationship with the Force, and developing his instincts, trusting intuition—and it leads him to absolutely demanding that he be allowed to train the guy who will become Vader, the greatest mass murderer in the galaxy. It makes me question his relationship to the Force. In Xanatos, we have a young Jedi who gets corrupted not by the Sith, but by other factors. There’s something really interesting there.
