On This Day: July 8, 2010


By Ciaran Duggan,

The first issue in the Star Wars: The Old Republic  comic series,  The Old Republic 1: Threat of Peace, Part 1, was published by Dark Horse Comics on this day back in 2010.

The comic book is set three hundred years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic video game and shows a galaxy on the brink of destruction.

The publisher said the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire were at war for decades in the lead up to the story and that representatives from both sides have attempted to negotiate a peace treaty but deception by the Sith puts the Jedi in a difficult position.

The Dark Horse comic series ties into the Star Wars: The Old Republic online game by LucasArts and Bioware.

Star Wars: The Old Republic video game was in December 2011

The first six issues of the comic are a re-release of the Star Wars: The Old Republic webcomics, Threat of Peace and Blood of the Empire and The Lost Suns.

The final issue, The Lost Suns Part 5, was published on October 12, 2011.
