    LOL, BJ. Bail and Obi-Wan are fighting like an old married couple in this book, it kind of funny. I see what you're saying about Bail, though. He's much more laid back in this book.

    Rhondaroo: Yep... much more laid back... I don't ship that way but, I have friends that do and they are
    having a field day with the Wild Space goodness.... [face_sick] My Obi doesn't swing that way...

    That is an interesting cover... Curious. I don't know if I'm excited about this new series... I just hope it
    is good...

    Yay for the preview! :D

    I read Wild Space last weekend while manning Lin's table at ShadowCon. It was a fun read. I have to admit that some of the Obi/Bail stuff towards the end lost my interest, but the A/P and the Obi/Padme interaction was great. I'm excited to see what we get next from Karen Miller.

    Wow... First Luke... Now Vader... Where's the big damn Anakin book????

    Oh well... Skywalkers first I guess... No, wait... Anakin was a Skywalker... WTF???

    The Luke on is actually a really neat book... So, I'm kind of looking forward to the Vader one...

    W00t! I posted in her author thread. I hope Knight Ander gets embarrassed about his Fan Fic rant. (See the Lit Wild Space thread)

    I got all happy and thought Karen Traviss had returned to the boards. I forgot we had another Karen writing in the GFFA!

    So I've been out of the loop with the books because of training, how many series have they done since Legacy of the Force.

    I'm curious what you guys are thinking about the KOTOR series since the finale to the whole 'padawan killer' story arc. I've enjoyed these last few about the pit racing but I don't think they are quite as good as the earlier issues. Thoughts?

    Tim!! Welcome back, man! [:D]


    Fate of the Jedi is the series next up after LotF and only the first book ?Outcast? has come out so far.


    The ?padawan killer? arc was awesome and the story does have a different feel to it now, but I think it?s a good and natural progression since the characters have been through some life-changing events. I?ve enjoyed the shorter stories since Vindication - gives us a chance to catch our breath before the next big arc. :cool:

    So I' m reading the KOTOR comics. Can anyone convince me that they're not rather dull?

    On issue 20 something now. It's gotten a bit better, though the central characters are still forgettable. Nice seeing the nods to the games, like Griff Vao, Brejik and Gadon Thek.


    Too bad there's been no Bastila, Canderous Ordo (he could easily have been fitted in rather than the whatshisname Mandalorian), and a distinct shortage of Revan so far!
