I still think Kanos should have dueled Luke Skywalker...
but then one has to get hurt/die... Better he just avoid Luke and save himself the appendage
Totally randon post, but every time I see this thread title, I just smile. It makes me want to post images that are awesome. Like, really awesome, with a Legacy twist! What sort of images you ask?
Oh, and this one, just to keep celebrating!
Be careful using that final image... Legacy's comeback could turn out just to be a misinterpretation.
I just found out about this through an email from my usual comics shop. I'm curious about something though. I thought that Legacy was cancelled at issue #50 and given Legacy: War to wrap up loose threads with. Is this a continuation of the Legacy story or is it just kind of related with 'Legacy' just stamped on it as it's that sort of time frame? I've clearly got no clue as to what going on, so can someone help me out a little?
Its essentially Volume 2, it takes place after War with a new protagonist.
This, basically. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Legacy_(sequel)
I wonder if Hapes is involved. Ania seems to be Allana's granddaughter.
Oh, that is pretty cool! Thanks.
Looks like I'll be getting this one as I really liked the original Legacy series.
Am I going to need to have read any of the EU to understand what's going on? I did start reading the NJO books but can't seem to find them that easily.
You don't have to. A good anything is understandable without extensive background info. And especially since this is a continuation of the original Legacy, which you like and know. I myself choose not to read the NJO books and I understand Legacy just fine.
I'd say having read Legacy Volume 1 would be more than sufficient MM, though all indications are it'll be the kind of story anyone can pick up and enjoy, regardless of EU knowledge.
I would not describe this as a continuation. It just takes place in the same time period. Legacy is on the cover for sales. Its not written by same creative team nor does it follow the same protagonist. Heck we did not even know this Solo existed. If it followed one of Bantha's brood that would be something or our new Leader of the Fel Empire.
Not to say I won't read it.
You can find them on Walmart.Con, Amazon, Ebay.
John is the king of the obscure Star Wars reference stuff, but he's not writing this so the jury is out. I imagine so long as your up to speed with some general knowledge of the Legacy Era you will be fine.
For instance Legacy 1/2(kinda a comic sized source book for the era) would be a lot more info than I would guess you would need to know.
Hey there. By all appearances, it seems to be a new series; Comic Book Resources has called it as much ("Dark Horse Comics is returning to the post-original trilogy era first as the publisher is set to launch a second "Star Wars: Legacy" series in 2013"), anyway. Oddly enough, though, darkhorse.com isn't numbering the issues in regards to the overall series, but only in regards to the story arc --- that is, Issue 1 is so far being called Star Wars: Legacy: Prisoner of the Floating World, Part 1 instead of Star Wars: Legacy 1: Prisoner of the Floating World, Part 1. That's how Dark Horse traditionally names its alternating miniseries SW titles, not its monthlies.
It'll be interesting to see how the publishing info included in the issue numbers it. Will it call the first issue Legacy 1, or will it be something like Legacy 51 or Legacy 57, the way that Dark Times also gets a Republic numbering in brackets? Only time will tell.
In the original Legacy series, Fel and his associates mentioned the members of the Moffs council where as much their enemies as the Sith.
Fel felt betrayed by the Moffs.
Since the Chiss Moff (I won't even try to spell his name) and Konrad Rus are still alive, do you think they will make an appearance or whether we will learn what happened to them?
Did you ever read the Legacy comic series, Team Padme?
Hmm, I wonder if we will get a new preview tomorrow for Legacy #2? IIRC, the issue comes out in a week.
Wait, it does? I thought #1 came out at the end of March...
Nevermind... I got #2's date mixed up with Star Wars #2.
Courtesy of Newsarama, character concept sketches by Hardman, all look very cool indeed:
Imperial Knight Yalta Val:
Imperial Knight Yalta Val's shuttle:
Hmm Yalta looks Asian to me.
Also as for the Sith (Imposter), I guess they are not lying low unless this guy is just faking it.
No I actually haven't read them. Maybe I will one day but I don't have any current plans to. I wanna read some of the earlier EU stuff first.
Ania is so Allana's granddaughter. They look alike.
Even though Allana's natural hair color is supposed to be red...
Still, so is Ben's hair, yet I've seen a grand total of one image of him with red hair. It's always either brown or dirty blonde.
So I guess there's definitely Sith in this.
Well, not if the "imposter" bit means what it says (albeit it's odd to give that away up front).
If that is the case, though, it'll actually be a rather neat story, about a Sith-who-isn't-a-Sith and a Suspected-Jedi-who-isn't-a-Jedi.
