    Book's not out yet, so who knows?

    What I do know is this board has the toughest art critics you'll ever find!

    Quick question about that preview. Is the pilot seen in the preview meant to be an actual clone or non clone pilot using the same gear? From what I gather the actual clones were replaced very quickly after the Clone Wars but the armour and equipment remained in use for a bit so I'm not sure.

    Edit: Got confused and thought this was the thread about the comic. I guess the question is still somewhat relevant to the book though' since I think the beginning of the book and the comic is meant to be the same. (I haven't actually got round to the novel yet but I will soon).

    Well in one of first two books in the new Darth Vader series some Clones mention how they shut down the cloning labs on Kamino and 'they'll raise the last batch up' as they begin adding recruits in.
    Which should mean they have at least a decade worth of Clones before they become obsolete with all the new recruits outnumbering them.

    To.

    Be.

    Honest.

    I’ve been looking at that parallel for some time and it’s why I accept Jagged suddenly becoming the head of the Empire of the Hand. Because he more or less had the same story as Thrawn thematically.

    no real spoiler for 8 here since my post is purely a question, but I'm tagging it just in case
    I'm curious now that Episode 8 is out, do people still actually think Snoke is the Unknown Regions threat?

    Sure, the movie doesn't really disprove anything.

    Just started reading. Enjoy the first chapter being a basic re-write of - I think - Mist Encounter? Good start.

    I finished it yesterday and thought it was really cool. I liked seeing the development of Pryce as well and gives us so much insight into both of them. I do want to see more Eli though. I really liked their partnership, even friendship. I want to see his Outer Rim adventures possibly in comic form.

    I feel like Eli should just become the Nu-Canon version of Pellaeon?

    They don't really have all that much in common when you look at it, other than the fact that they both had Thrawn as a mentor.

    Key distinction being Pellaeon was an officer in the days of the Republic, sure, but it could end up this way.

    Well, age and authority is one part, but the other big thing is that Pellaeon is pretty much defined by his military service and his view of himself as a soldier and his particular view of the Empire. He was a much more militaristic character than Eli and his relationship with Thrawn was more defined by that role.
