Artoo shows how awesome he is by taking out two superweapons at once!
Palpatine’s plan to become a baby is foiled first by Han shooting first, then by a floating potato of a Jedi eating his spirit or something.
You had me at "Palpatine's plan to become a baby".
Who doesn't like Rancors eating tanks? Huh?
Come on, that was a fantastic scene!
That is probably the only thing I did not like about the DE Trilogy.
I think if they had given Veitch four more issues, he could have written an even better Empire's End.
The Galaxy Gun and the Eclipse destroying one another just did not work for me.
They should have just let Byss alone. Why did it have to be destroyed?
Apart from that, I love the DE Trilogy!
The comic that gives us the answer to a question we never asked: Palpatine hates being old.
R2D2 has become death, the destroyer of worlds.
Winnar! Move along. Crushed it.
I'm inclined to agree, but you'd be surprised how many times someone has shown up on the second day and crushed it even further. See: Parnesius.
In an uncharacteristic display of altruism and general fairness, Palpatine declares that *everyone* will have a chance to kill him. A selfish Jedi without a leg to stand on ruins this, by claiming Palpatine all for himself.
Every character introduced by the previous installment either disappears or dies to little fanfare, leaving the state of the galaxy the same as it was at the end of the original Dark Empire so that the Jedi Academy Trilogy won't suffer continuity backlash... except for Anakin Solo, who lasted a month shy of another six years before editorial finally got around to snipping his little loose end.
Aside, what what's Plapy's back-up if he did posses Anakin Solo's body? Goo-goo-gah-gah evilly? Use the dark side of the Force to make diaper changing for his parents extreme unpleasant? Immediately baby Anakin Solo/Palpatine starts shooting force-lightning and kills everyone in the room, roll over to the commlink and make angry crying noises until one of his Dark Side Adepts picked him up?
.... hmmmm, that last one isn't a terrible plan, actually.
Jeng Droga volunteered babysitting duty.
He is not amused.
Palpatine throws tantrums and gets shot by Han, Artoo kills billions of Imperial like a boss, Luke's Jedi class gets thinned to just Kam Solusar so that the Jedi Academy Trilogy can make sense, and Tom Veitch throws in as many cameos from Tales of the Jedi planets as he can in this mess of a conclusion that even Cam Kennedy wouldn't touch.
Good, but alas, two sentences.
Gotta use semi-colons, colons, and em dashes.
Poor Okko will forever be trapped in Carbonite
Han Solo introduce Palpatien to his Little Friend!
Okay, calling it--
@Todd makes you all look like punks.
Wedge laments the loss of the Sun Crusher.
The Essential Guide to Laughing Out Loud in the Star Wars EU
Hobbie and Wes make refresher jokes, Wedge has a semi-midlife crisis, Tycho remains as awesome as ever–and Wes Janson walks around with a cape and sword for the entire book; in short, this book is the alpha-male of the X-wing series.
The dynamic quartet, or perhaps the duo of dynamic duos, demonstrate how to beat the Empire at winning over a world, and finally reconciling a relationship, all while providing more laughs than the rest of the series put together and dealing with a traitorous spook to boot.
Pure distilled entertainment, as the four biggest badasses in the New Republic go to a planet of silly accents, stupid clothes, and bizarre facial hair, where they're basically worshiped and kick its ass (with SWORD GUNS) until it gets with the times, then beat the Empire for a bonus; Wedge getting the girl, persuading the Empire's coolest admiral to defect, and everyone cracking wise and dressing in drag and pranking Ejector Darpen is just to keep them entertained between asskickings.
