Titan is launching a second Star Wars comic for the UK market: coming on October 28, the first issue of the four-weekly mag Star Wars Galaxy will be on the newsstands. It appears that this comic will feature only reprints of existing Dark Horse stories, and no new stories (as appear in the Clone Wars Comic). Starwars.com reports the following:
"Star Wars Galaxy is the brand new four-weekly comic from Titan comics, showcasing the greatest Star Wars comic adventures from a galaxy far, far away!
Launching on October 28 in the UK, each four-weekly 76-page issue contains three pulse-pounding Star Wars comic adventures.
Issue #1 goes beneath the grim breathing apparatus of cinema's greatest villain to follow Darth Vader as he tracks down a Jedi and Padawan who escaped the deadly purge of Order 66, in Purge: The Hidden Blade!
Invasion begins with a terrifying prologue, as a deadly new enemy stirs in the reaches beyond the known galaxy, and the Yuuzhan Vong descend on the peaceful New Republic! Featuring Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa Solo alongside a stunning new cast, Invasion is another thrill-packed glimpse into a fan-favorite corner of the galaxy.
Finally, The Old Republic kicks off with the terrifying Sith Empire returning to the galaxy to enact its vengeance on galactic civilization. Can a fragile peace be brokered between these two cultures, or will all descend into civil war? This strip ties into The Old Republic, the incredible videogame MMO released next summer!
Every issue also features competitions to win must-have Star Wars merchandise, with issue #1 including a competition to win copies of The Force Unleashed II video game and an Xbox 360 console!
