    I actually did start to do that. I went back and re-read the Hand of Thrawn Duology and am now reading Survivor's Quest.
    I always kinda had a feeling C'Baoth was a creap before the clone, but now I know I was right.

    Sounds like Outbound Flight is deffinitely somthing I am going to have to read. Has anyone read Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader? I am a HUGE post suit Vader fan, but I want to make sure this book does him justice, and make sure it is worth my $$.

    Hey Ian, yes Dark Lord was a very good read. It had how Darth was adjusting to his new suit and such, and what happened with the wookies. If you don't collect the books, you may want to get it from your local library. Enough time has passed that there shouldn't be a million and one people on a waiting list to read it.

    I finished reading Jedi Trial last night, I wasn't very impressed with the story.

    They mentioned Ventress a few times and i figured her an Anakin might have a duel, but there never was.

    Just started on Yoda: Dark Rendevous, I hope it is better than Trial.

    Finished Rendevous and was pleased with the plot and portrayal of Yoda. Anakin and Obi-wan having small parts didn't hurt the book either, it showed that neither of them needs to be central characters to have a successful story.

    LOE is the next book I'll read, I've heard it is a really great book.

    I picked up Outbound Flight last weekend and Republc Camando Triple Zero.
    I'm about halfway thru Outbound now, so far I like it.

    Labyrith of Evil was a great book. It is among one of my favorites, it really gave me a new perspective on Revenge of the Sith.


    I picked up Triple Zero and am starting on that now.

    Triple Zero was a great book.

    I hope another one comes out.


    As for your question Medic, no it is not the same. Although it seems that Jango must have been very fertile because at least two of his clones have gotten women pregnant.

    I'll be picking up Betrayal next week.

    I finished reading the Han Solo Trilogy last week while I was waiting for the Legacy Series to come out.

    I picked up the 25 cent issue of Legacy. I am kinda confused. So this takes place long after Luke and the others are dead right? How are the Skywalker's related to Luke?
    The artwork looks alright, plus there is more then one sith.

    Man I have some catchingup on my reading. I've had Triple Zero for several months, started reading it a month or so ago,but I'm still on the 2nd or third chapter. I tend to pick something else to read or I'm trying take care of paperwork from being off sick. Which is a whole other story. If I get to a point I would love to borrow someones copy of the new comic.

    I went to Amazon, and saw many were paperback for the series. SO it is going to be a mix of paperback and hardcover then? Not just one or the other?
    Thanks.

    Hey thanks so much.
    I wonder why they split between hardback and paperback?
    I know the Sith book will be hardback. It looks very interesting.
