Igor Kordey: Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi – Redemption #2 Cover (1998) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 23 MAR 2013

Dark Horse is known for its endless series of mini-series spun out of movie franchises, and over the years, Star Wars certainly proved to be one of their best cash cows. Of course, this means ever longer series titles as you keep having to reach for a new one after every three or four books!

Issue 2 of Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi – Redemption carried the chapter entitled The Search for Peace, written by writer Kevin J. Anderson. The synopsis (per solicitation) reads as follows:

Guilt-ridden, Ulic Qel-Droma hides from his past on the frozen world of Rhen Var. Meanwhile, on Exis station, Nomi Sunrider calls together the Jedi Knights to discuss the future of the Republic. After hearing so much about Ulic and remembering him from her childhood, Vima Sunrider decides to go in search of him. When Hoggon discovers Vima on his ship, he is astounded to learn that the mysterious stranger he took to Rhen Var is in fact Ulic himself.

While the pencils and inks for the interior work was handled both by artist Chris Gossett, painter Igor Kordey was approached to come up with the covers for the series.

And as you can see for yourself, he very much delivered with this stunning piece of art for issue 2!
