This is good-bye. It's been a great run at Dark Horse for the Star Wars license. Twenty three years, from Dark Empire to The Star Wars, and there's (almost) always been a book worth reading. This review is for the final issue of DH ongoing title, but can serve as an epitaph for the whole time frame. This issue is certainly representative of this series-good, not great, fits in perfectly between SW and Empire, and won't ruffle any feathers. Brian Wood gives us a story that clearly wasn't intended to end here that shows how the rebels would be able to pick safe locations for secret bases. I'd like to think it ties directly to Marvel's issue #55, and that Hoojibs are in our future somewhere. This issue is a 6, the series was a 7, and Dark Horse's time in a galaxy far, far away was about a 7 overall as well. The teams that Marvel announced at San-Diego are really exciting, but I'm grateful for all the great ones we've had over the last two decades.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
