Dark Horse has revealed the cover for Darth Maul: Death Sentence #4 (of 4). Dave Dorman knocks out another gorgeous cover. Death Sentence #4 will be out October 17th.

As more Jedi—Obi-Wan included!—and clone trooper reinforcements arrive to take Savage Opress and the crooked mine owner into custody, Darth Maul convinces the locals that the Jedi are in league with the mine owner who exploited them. If the Jedi fight the natives, they’ll be killing innocents. If they don’t, they’ll be killed themselves! It’s the perfect distraction for Maul to find and release his brother!

Dark Horse Comics has announced via io9 that they have a brand new Star Wars comic called…Star Wars. The new title will be an ongoing series set during the Original Trilogy and written by Brian Wood. They also reveal cover art by Alex Ross, interior art by Carlos D’Anda, and some answers from Dark Horse editor Randy Stradley.

Randy Stradley: As for how this series is “different” from past entries in this time period, I guess the answer would be that we’re trying very had to keep everything fresh — as if Episode IV had just come out in theaters. This is the Star Wars series for everyone who has loved the films, but has never delved into any of the comics or novels. There is no vast continuity that a reader needs to know beyond the events in A New Hope. This is the beginning of the adventures of Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie.

The new series will debut in January. Follow the link to see all of Stradley’s teasers as well as the interior art.
