Quote Randy Stradley from the current editorial of the SW Zone at Dark Horse.com
There is certainly something to be said for the joy of giving, and we at Dark Horse are overjoyed to deliver a Star Wars gift for you. I hope you'll forgive us if the gift arrives a few days late for the holidays, but it's not scheduled to debut until Wednesday, January 7, 2009. See, the new issues of MySpace Dark Horse Presents go live the first Wednesday of each month, and the January issue of MDHP contains part one of an all-new Dark Times story!
Ever since the events in Revenge of the Sith, Dass Jennir has been trying to find his place in a galaxy where being a Jedi carries a death sentence. Previously, he has made some questionable choices -- which have cost him his friends, and his belief in himself. Now, down to his last Republic credit, Jennir must decide whether to cling to his Jedi ideals and at the very least starve, or to accept an unsavory job from the kind of people who ask no questions and keep no employment records. If being a Jedi makes him an outlaw, can he be an outlaw and still be a Jedi?
This new story, entitled "Blue Harvest," is written by Mick Harrison and illustrated by Douglas Wheatley, both old hands at chronicling this period of Star Wars history. The preview images you see here are of Wheatley's finished artwork prior to colorist Dave McCaig making his contribution. After online segments in January and February, the story will jump to Dark Times #13 (April 22, 2009) for the start of a five-issue arc.
Jennir's two-part quest begins in MySpace Dark Horse Presents #18, and is brought to you absolutely free of charge by your pals at Dark Horse. We hope you experience the joy of getting! --126.96.36.199 00:11, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Blue Harvest 0Edit
This article and the article for Star Wars Dark Times: Blue Harvest 0 have two different publication dates. Since I don't own the comic, I don't know which date is correct, therefore I don't know which article needs to be edited. --Hobbie 23:20, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
- It looks like I Need a Name updated the July release date to the August date last year, seems that might indicate the August date is the corrected one. Dangerdan97 23:34, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
- Yup, I went on to Dark Horse's website - should have just done that in the first place - and the August date is correct.--Hobbie 21:02, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
A Spark Remains arc? Edit
Recently A Spark Remains was added as the next arc of the story. Curious, I did some googling and found this interview with Randy Stradley. I don't see any indication from his words that this is the next arc. Other websites speculate or assume it is, but until it's confirmed I don't think it should be in this article. If someone can find a solid source, feel free to add it back in. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 15:52, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
- Apparently, this information was released at WonderCon. Just heard it confirmed on the ForceCast.net podcast. I've added it back to the article. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 16:59, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
Is the series most likely over? I visited this page to figure out what happens next. It has a happy ending, yet Luke does not find any normal members of the jedi order, so they must be hastily killed off in passing in another comic (which I was hoping to find).
