Luck wasn’t Zayne Carrick’s thing — but your lucky numbers are coming up on 7/7/21! The entire Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comics arc will appear in a single edition, Star Wars Legends: The Old Republic Omnibus will be out that day, according to Marvel solicitations released this morning and posted by JediNews.
There are two editions, one with a Brian Ching cover (from KOTOR #31) and one from Dustin Weaver (from the KOTOR Handbook). A truly massive 1,344 pages, it’s priced at $125. Here’s the solicitation copy:
A long, long time ago, the Star Wars galaxy was a very different place. Welcome to the Old Republic! When young Jedi Zayne Carrick is framed for murder by his own masters, he goes on the run with three unlikely allies: con artist Marn Hierogryph, fugitive scientist Camper and bodyguard Jarael. But can they survive long enough to clear Carrick’s name, uncover a conspiracy and maybe gain a bit of profit along the way? Strap in for an adventure that spans the galaxy as this ragtag group of heroes face corrupted Jedi, deadly Mandalorians, the power of the Sith and more!

SIGNED COPY AVAILABILITY!
I will be ordering a quantity of the books for signing and mail order. I urge you to preorder through your comic shops: I cannot guarantee I will get enough, and because of the extreme weight and size of the books, I will NOT be doing sales outside the United States.
But I will be getting some copies, and as I try to gauge how many to get, I am building an “interest list” for them. It’s not a preorder and you’re not committing — but you will be the first to be contacted by me when they’re available. The price per book is expected to be $160 U.S. postpaid. I will recalculate once I know the exact size and mailing costs, but I expect that should be about right.
Right now for U.S. residents to get on the list, write me at orders[at]farawaypress.com with your:
• Quantity of copies you’re interested in
• Cover preference (Weaver or Ching)
When the book releases, I’ll write to reconfirm your interest; at that point I’ll send out PayPal invoices to the list and get your address and any personalization requests. You’ll have a week to pay, at that point. It’ll be first-come, first served while my quantity lasts, so if you don’t respond you’ll lose your spot.
No deposit is being asked, and these copies are not guaranteed to be available — again, if you want to be absolutely sure you get yours, see your retailer or use one of the links above. I’ll be happy to sign books when conventions start again. But I do intend to seek to get enough copies to handle requests I receive by January 29, which is the general ordering deadline for retailers.
