There’s a whole lot of Star Wars in the news, and in an attempt to ride that bandwagon until the wheels fall off, I’m keeping that spirit alive with some comic book recommendations from a galaxy far, far away! I’ve spoken at length before how Star Wars: Legacy is one of my favourite titles from before the Disney acquisition, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Star Wars: Empire.

Forty issues from Dark Horse’s stable, that dealt with the inner machinations of Emperor Palpatine’s grand Galactic Empire. What did it take to keep the galaxy under control, just how deadly were the power struggles from within the shadows and just what sacrifices was the Empire willing to make to maintain a tyrannical grip on every sentient being around?

If you ever wanted a proper deep dive into the dark side of Star Wars, this was the series to read at the time. Sure, most of it may have been properly Death Starred into oblivion following George Lucas’s sale of the franchise to the house of mouse, but it’s still a fascinating and intense collection of stories that deserve to be read. If you’re interested, here’s the list of graphic novels that you can grab right now, be they digital or physical:

  • Empire Vol. 1: Betrayal
  • Empire Vol. 2: Darklighter
  • Empire Vol. 3: The Imperial Perspective
  • Empire Vol. 5: Allies and Adversaries
  • Empire Vol. 6: In the Shadows of Their Fathers
  • Empire Vol. 7: The Wrong Side of the War

Now, onto the best comic book covers of the week!
