Star Wars Rebels Season 2 on Disney XD Animation 06 APR 2016

The first season of Star Wars Rebels was a pretty fun ride. Set fourteen years after Revenge of the Sith and five years before A New Hope, Rebels takes place during an era when the Galactic Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy. Imperial forces are hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights while a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking form.

It introduced us to the hot head, street smart, Ezra (who it turns out, might just make a pretty decent Jedi), the cowboy Jedi and leader of the rebel cell, Kanan, Ghost pilot Hera, the gruff and irritable Zeb, the creative but also good with explosives Sabine, and of course the annoying and slightly broken astromech droid Chopper.

Chased by the relentless Agent Kallus, and then hunted by the brutal Grand Inquisitor (with his awesomely designed lightsaber), the Rebels slowly moved from being a small thorn in the Empire’s toe to a rather large pain in it’s side!

Kanan was forced to wield his lightsaber once more, and as it turned out, became an unwilling mentor when it was shown that Ezra might just have a connection to the force.

Loads of action, tons of nods to franchise and of course lots of awesome guest appearances, season 1 certainly didn’t disappoint – and ended on an absolute thrilling note: the introduction of Lord Vader himself!

So yes. The kids and I are most definitely looking forward to season 2 kicking of on Disney XD!

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!
