‘Star Wars: Darth Maul – Death Sentence’ Announced!

Raaargh! As announced by The Force.net and Rebel Scum, the next Star Wars series I’m writing is ‘Darth Maul: Death Sentence’ – coming July from Dark Horse comics.
I’m having a great time writing Maul and Savage. These brothers are responsible for probably my highest ever CPP (carnage per page).

I noticed the artist hasn’t been announced (so I won’t say anything here) but I’ve seen the first few pages and they’re great. Can’t wait for the interwebs to see a preview. Until more is announced, here is this stunning cover by Dave Dorman. This is the first cover to grace one of my comics that I couldn’t have as my desktop wallpaper. My son was too scared by it (well done, Dave Dorman).


By now the galaxy has learned the terrible truth: Sith Lord Darth Maul still lives. Worse, he has joined forces with his brother Savage Opress!

The Jedi are searching for them and, after Maul and Opress cut a murderous swath through the Outer Rim, so is an army of mercenaries hired by a wealthy mine owner.

Darth Maul has a price on his head, and for him there is only one way to deal with such a problem: go directly to the source!

Death Sentence #1 is on sale July 25, 2012. Written by Tom Taylor (Invasion) and cover by Dave Dorman (Dark Empire, Crimson Empire)
