There's a New Jedi Knight in Town!
Writer John Jackson Miller and artists Federico Dallocchio, Michael Atiyeh, & Mark Kenna embark upon a new era for a legendary galaxy with Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars: Knight Errant – Aflame #1, the launch of a five-issue limited series that introduces 18-year-old Jedi Knight Kerra Holt, heroine of the upcoming Del Rey Books Knight Errant novel!
Set more than a millennium before the events of A New Hope, Knight Errant occurs in a dark age when the Republic has all but ceded total control to the Sith. This doesn’t stop Kerra from joining a volunteer band in penetrating enemy lines, ready to face anything – or so she thinks.
Miller’s long connection to Dark Horse’s Star Wars comics should bring numerous readers to the limited series, and anticipation for his Knight Errant novel should also lure prose readers to the title for their first encounter with Kerra.
