Tales of the Jedi

STAR WARS: DAWN OF THE JEDI #0

Following yesterdays story on Tales of the Jedi, I wanted to give you a heads up on a new comic from Dark Horse comics. Set 34,000 years before the Star Wars movies, Dawn of the Jedi is a story that begins early in the universe and helps set the stage for the Star Wars world as we see it today and also in SWTOR. #0 starts us off as a preview issue of the comic series from Dark Horse.  Released on February 1, 2012, this episode is less of a story and more of a guidebook to the upcoming series.  “It began with the mysterious pyramid ships–the Tho Yor–scattered to the eight corners of the galaxy, and ended with the establishment of an Order that would change the universe forever.
