IDW'S STAR WARS ADVENTURES: THE CLONE WARS - BATTLE TALES

IDW Publishing has announced an April release for Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars - Battle Tales, a weekly, five-issue series.

The comic book event is written by Michael Moreci and features a framing sequence in each issue by Star Wars Adventures mainstay Derek Charm. Similar to the popular Tales from Vader's Castle and Return to Vader's Castle five-week events, every issue of Clone Wars will spotlight a different artist on interiors: Arianna Florean (issue #1), Megan Levens (#2), Valentina Pinto (#3), Davide Tinto (#4) and Philip Murphy (#5).

Here's how IDW describes the book:

"While Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and other Jedi Knights fight against incredible odds, Commander Cody, Captain Rex, and other clone troopers are pinned down for the duration, swapping war stories that feature favorite characters from The Clone Wars animated series, such as Padme Amidala, General Grievous, and many more!"

"The Clone Wars era is probably my favorite in all of Star Wars. It has it all -- big adventure, sweeping romance, Force mythology, Jedi powers, and, of course, the awesome clones," Moreci said. "This event series is going to bring together all the best, evergreen parts of Star Wars and weave a story that longtime fans -- like myself -- and new, younger readers -- like my own kids -- will definitely love."

"Ever since it was first mentioned in A New Hope, the Clone Wars have ignited the imaginations of Star Wars fans," said Star Wars Adventures editor Denton J. Tipton. "We are honored and excited to build upon that mythos on the shoulders of giants like Genndy Tartakovsky and Dave Filoni."

Each issue of Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars -- Battle Tales will feature covers by Derek Charm, including spot-color retailer incentive covers. An additional retailer incentive variant for issue #1 will be available featuring the artwork of Michael Avon Oeming.

FAITHLESS RETURNS: BOOM! Studios has announced an April launch for Faithless II, a six-issue sequel series from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Maria Llovet.

Here's how BOOM! describes the series:

"Turin, known as the epicenter of black magic, is also a place of high fashion, art, and literature. Now, Faith is in the center of it all and with that, her own power grows. But any power comes with a price. Faith has only just begun to pay for hers."

"I'm excited to dive back into Faithless with Maria. When we last saw Faith, it appeared she'd gotten all that she'd wished for, but at what cost? Well, since the devil is involved it shouldn't be too hard to guess the price," Azzarello said. "We're going to take Faith from the heady downtown art scene and move her to Turin, a city steeped in both black and white magic."

NEW STUMPTOWN: Here's how ABC describes "The Dex Factor," the episode of Stumptown scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 5:

"Dex goes undercover as a potential buyer to help Hoffman and Grey with the next phase of their drug case. Meanwhile, Dex unexpectedly becomes close to a fellow veteran support group member and soon discovers they have more in common than they thought. After being left in charge of the Bad Alibi, Ansel struggles to maintain order and enlists Tookie's help."

"The Dex Factor" was written by Matt Olmstead and Jason Richman and was directed by Stacey K. Black.
