    Thanks to our friends at Dark Horse Comics, we have a bevy of exciting, exclusive covers to share with you. These covers are for the titles below, all of which are tied to John Jackson Miller’s corner of the “Star Wars” universe.

    For those that don’t know, Miller has been telling some of the best “Star Wars” stories in comics over the past few years, kicking off with Empire, leading into Knights of the Old Republic, and then leading into his current series in the form of Knight Errant: Escape and The Lost Tribe of the Sith. He’s not just prolific, but fantastic at it.

    Below, we have solicits and covers for a few new JJM joints, as well as a conversation with Miller about his work on these titles, how he joined in on the fun, his site Comichron, and the industry in general. Thanks to Miller for chatting with me, and we hope you enjoy it.
