Some breaking news out of New York Comic-Con — Dark Horse Comics is telling an original comics story set during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion previously chronicled in the best-selling New Jedi Order series from Del Rey Books. This is no adaptation or retelling of a novel — no, Star Wars: Invasion is a brand new story by writer Tom Taylor and artist Colin Wilson. It starts this summer, first as an online preview, and then as a regular print comic.
Comic Book Resources has the scoop, with an interview with Taylor including art work samples from the series, and they look fantastic. The Yuuzhan Vong in full color glory — believe us, Skrulls have nothing on the Vong. These sickos killed Chewbacca, for crying out loud.
