The Republic is dead, now come the Dark Times.
The events of Star Wars: Episode III — The Revenge Of The Sith, in which Chancellor Palpatine declares himself Emperor and issues Order 66 to have all the Jedi killed, have had broad effects in the Star Wars universe, including on its comics.
The long-running Dark Horse Comics series, Star Wars: Republic, which told tales of life for the Jedi in the Clone Wars era, has been replaced with Star Wars: Dark Times, following the lives of a handful of survivors of Order 66.
Jedi Dass Jenir and his companion, Bomo Greenbark, managed to avoid being wiped out on New Plympto — but at a very high price.
Greenbark’s wife and daughter have been taken by the Imperial forces to be sold as slaves, leading the duo to make some unexpected allies and some rather shocking decisions as they search the galaxy to reunite the family.
Featuring exceptional art by Canadian Douglas Wheatley and story by Welles Hartley and Mick Harrison, The Path To Nowhere is definitely worth taking.
