Retro Dark Horse: Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir #1

A year ago, Dark Horse Comics began publishing the mini-series, Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir.  This is the last series Dark Horse would start publishing for their Star Wars line and is the first comic series in the new canon.  This is also the only series Dark Horse published that is considered part of the new canon.  The series is an adaptation of sixth season scripts for Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series that were never produced.
