Dark Horse solicitations for June 2009

Fog? On Tatooine? Who knew!StarWars.com has the June 09 comic teases. The Legacy blurb is of particular interest, given yesterday’s John Ostrander and Jan Duursema interview:

When word reaches Moff Nyna Calixte that Imperial convoys are being attacked by Black Sun Pirates, she sends her daughter, “Gunner” Yage, and Gunner’s squadron of crack fighter pilots to intervene. But what neither of them knows is that the pirates themselves are under attack by other pirates — Cade Skywalker and the crew of the Mynock.

Despite his victory over Emperor Darth Krayt, Cade is still the galaxy’s most-wanted criminal, and Gunner’s squad is itching for another shot at him! Longtime readers: You can see what’s coming, right?

That’s Legacy #37, which kicks off the ‘Tatooine’ storyline. Also solicited are Knights of the Old Republic #42, (featuring The Rocketeer?) Dark Times #15 and new Omnibus, Menace Revealed, featuring a hodgepodge of stuff set between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.

EUbits: Deathtroopers, comics, new short story

The hype continues. Joe Schreiber reports that that the first look at Deathtroopers got over 50,000 page views. It’s officially big on the internet! (Plus he’ll be at NYCC this weekend with some extremely unofficial swag – the book’s soundtrack.)

Meanwhile, we have another sighting: Literary agent Colleen Lindsay, with nothing but praise.

EUbits: Stover and Harrison interviews, Rebel Force, everyone has a canon position

IMAGE: Rogue Leader by Dave SeeleyMatthew Stover and That Upcoming Luke Novel. There are only 21 days to Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, and Bookspot Central has a lengthy interview with Stover.

There’s plenty about his infuences, the Caine books, and of course, Star Wars, starting about halfway. (via)

EUbits: Dark Times returning, TOR, Endor

Comics: There’s a new update from Editor Randy Stradley on Dark Horse’s Star Wars Zone, and it’s of particular interest to you Dark Times fans. A new story will appear (online, for free) in the January and February issues of Dark Horse Presents on MySpace, with the comic coming back into regular rotation with #13 in April. (Thanks, Zee Zee!)

Details from Dark Horse on Dark Times, digests

TFN has a report from the Dark Horse panel at Baltimore Comic-Con. Dark Times will be returning in 2009, I’m guessing in the spring, when The Clone Wars miniseries runs its course. (No word on Rebellion.) TCW digest will go on, and they also gave out a bit on the new digest, Star Wars Adventures:

It will feature the same animated art style of the current digest sized books, and will focus on the Classic Trilogy characters, including Han and Chewie. Look for a story from Jeremy Barlow in the first issue.

And yes, Crimson Empire III is still a no-go.
