    That cover is simply wow... I think that if I had not dropped Japanese from my curriculum, I'd get those books because of the covers...

    Or not. Original is always better than a translation. Believe me, I know.

    I still think it'd be neat if they put Godzilla on one of their covers ;)

    This is the first Japanese cover i've really liked......don't get me wrong...i've really enjoyed all of the other ones...but this is the first time i strongly think that it works far far far far far far far far far better...than the U.S. cover......even on the little things...ex: why the heck is Mara holding a gun looking grungy and pissed on the U.S. one?...she is supposed to be deatly ill and in pain as can be seen on the Japanese one......also the stylized nature of Anakin's saber divividing the image in half counter to its natural vertical devision looks great......i just wish it had Corran on it as he was a major player...more so than Lando...and it'd be nice to have a good quality image of him...I, jedi was ok but a little strange...and i personaly can't see Stackpole as corran......


    B.T.W....does anyone else find the name Givin wierd?...anyone prounounce it any way other than...given?...

    I too like this Japanese cover, it has more details than the US ones. To the one who said that Mara looked too young for 46, I only have one word - Madonna. She's about the same age as Mara Jade and she just had two children.

    I really love the Japanese covers. It is nice to actually SEE portraits of the characters in the books (i.e. All of the solo kids). Since each book seems to take place on one planet these days, it is also nice to see portraits of the race of people from the particular planet.

    Help! I have a nice sized picture of each of the Japanese covers save on my computer for a future collage, except for the cover to Conquest. I can only find a thumbnail sized picture for this cover art. Does anyone have a url to a large, normal-sized picture for this cover? I would sure appreciate it! Thank you in advanced.

    My God... It looks like a movie poster.. It's so beatiful.. It's like NJO the movie or something!

    I havent seen a Star Wars cover this beatiful since Drew Struzan was painting them. Struzan was of course the guy who did the posters for the SW movies as well... The Japanese artist has captured a Struzanesque look.

    My God... Any way they could send our covers to Japan and we could get theirs?

    I like the cover, but like several others, I think Anakin looks too old to be 16 or 17.

    Once again, these Japanese NJO covers blow me away. They're all so wonderful, and I'm glad the Japanese covers aren't so deceptive as the US books, you would have thought Luke and Mara would have had more screen time in Rebirth since they're the featured characters on the front, but noooooooo!

    I love it. IMO all the Japanese covers are better than the regular ones. They tell more, even if they copy a lot.

    Tahiri. It is basic for "liability" :)

    It's the girl behind Anakin I believe.


    I bet if you showed people that pic of Anakin, and asked who it was, 90% would say Corran or Kyp

    Thats HER?!?!? I thought that was Jacan, or Jacan was in the front and Ani in the back?!?!?

    Yup, that's her. I personally don't think she looks like a guy...but she did chop off her hair, so that's why it's short on this cover, and long on the Japanese cover of Conquest.

    Here's the Japanese cover for Conquest. It's not as good as the other cover's scan, but it's quite 'big' and should do it.

    the only bad thing about the conquest japanese cover is that Ikrit looks like a little fuzzy stuffed animal. I thought he was supposed to be like a bear. Brown fur.

    No, that's Master Ikirt allright. You can see his image on the cover of JJA #1 The Golden Globe.

    I stand corrected. My little Ikrit experience is in Conquest.

    Hmmm... I have always think that's what Ikrit looks like, white fur, cat size, round eye and floopy ear. But that's from the old days reading JJK. Should read the descriptions in Conquest again....

    Thanks for the pic, Xizor...I used to have it, but my comp. had to be wiped and I didn't save it to a floppy, and then I couldn't find it anywhere!
