Celebrating Star Wars author Tom Veitch

On February 18, writer Tom Veitch passed away at the age of 80 due to complications from COVID-19, according to a public Facebook post from his brother, artist/writer/publisher Rick Veitch. To "Star Wars" fans, Veitch is best known as the author of several titles for Dark Horse Comics, including "Dark Empire" (1991-1992), "Tales of the Jedi" (1993-1994), "Dark Empire II" (1994-1995), and "Empire's End (1995).

Veitch's work, particularly "Dark Empire," remains incredibly special to me, as it continued the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, and Han Solo during "The Dark Times" of the late '80s and early '90s, when no "Star Wars" films or television series were being made. Thank you for your contributions to the galaxy far, far away, Mr. Veitch. My thoughts are with your friends and family. 

Please consider donating to this GoFundMe organized by Tom's daughter, Angelica, on behalf of his widow, Martha Veitch.
