Valentines Day Weekend Star Wars sale

Dark Horse Comics is offering a valentine to anyone who wants to catch up on one or more of 38 Star Wars digital comics available on their website.  Their promotion states that you can save up to 50% off cover price but we’re seeing $2.99 books going for as low as $0.99 and even a $0.49 for Brian Wood’s Star Wars, Issue #1.

We recommend the great Star Wars: Infinities books, a “what if?” alternate version of each of the three original trilogy stories.  You’ll also find the classic Dark Empire series, and romantics can check out Star Wars: Union, where Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade tie the knot, and the Valentine’s Day version of the Star Wars Christmas Special in Judd Winick’s one-shot Breaking the Ice issue.  Disney has announced they are throwing aside much of the expanded universe built over the past 35 years, but we think they are nuts if they don’t include Mara Jade.  Find out more about her in Dark Horse Comics.

CITY_01 panel

Out this week is Darby Pop Publishing and IDW’s new series City: The Mind in the Machine.  A new surveillance system can prevent all crime in San Francisco.  But it doesn’t work without a human mind to control it.  A victim of a terrorist attack, Ben is turned into that mind.  Tied into the surveillance system with bio-neural implants he becomes a one man army against crime, whether he likes it or not.  So what do you do when you can control an entire city with your thoughts?

A bit RoboCop, a bit Bionic Man, City: The Mind in the Machine looks at security and technology in a very cinematic way.

A four-issue limited series, City is written by Eric Garcia, who wrote Matchstick Men and the screenplay for Repo Men.  Pencils and inks are by Javier Fernandez with colors by Mark Englert and Felix Serrano.  The cover is by Tommy Lee Edwards.
