One of the most original Star Wars comic titles in recent years is Dark Times. For those of you who haven’t read this series, let me lay down the background. The story takes place in the time period between the prequel Star Wars trilogy and the original Star Wars trilogy. The story of this book has Darth Vader trying to track down an assassin who killed a prisoner he was trying to interrogate about the location of former Jedi Knight Dass Jennir. Jennir’s former crew members are trying to find him with the help of another Jedi named Beyghor Sahdett, which leads them to attack an Imperial holding facility to find out where Jennir is, they find out Jennir has left the planet. When we see Jennir he has be stranded on a desert moon with a companion who is a lair and a cheat. But little do they know they are also being tracked by the same assassin who thwarted Vader.

I love the writing by Randy Stradley who is writing here under the pen name Mick Harrison. I can tell that Stradley really cares for these characters and treats them with a lot of respect. He also tries to use some comic relief with the smaller characters.

The art by Wheatley is just perfect and it fits the setting of the story. The shadows work perfectly when you see Vader and the Emperor on Coruscant in the former Senate building. When we see Jennir and his companion in the desert you can just see the heat by the way its drawn.

I love this book and I can’t say enough about it. I give it a five out of five.
