Love the cover, can't wait to see the back.
Well that was a little disappointing. The big announcement is that we another one word title and a cover to a book we already knew was coming out?
Also, I'm a little displeased that Lando is in the book because his role in Rebel Dawn fit well with ESB. Oh well, I'm sure Zahn can still make it work.
I have to say as much as the cover looks good, I agree with you, I was fine with the last time Han saw Lando was the Ylesia incident... there is no reason for him to cross pasths again until Bespin... After all, it was a long time ago, not so long if its post Yavin
The cover is pretty sweet. Anyone else think the style is similar to Scourge's cover?
I am disappointed, but then again, I am typically am with most EU annoucements these days.
One day you will get your epic Ackbar v Pelleon Novel...
I have been waiting nearly nine years, but I suppose I can wait another nine or so.
I'll admit, I was hoping for a bigger announcement, but this works. And as I said earlier, Yavin Vasilika took place during Rebel Dawn sometime after the Battle of Ylesia, and Lando was in both.
" Yavin Vasilika" ?
The main problem I have with this is, unfortunately, the author. As much as I love early-Zahn; later-Zahn seems (to me, at least) to be "how much can I have my OCs affect the GCW-era and beyond?" Choices of One (IIRC), in particular, was galling in this regard...
So I am worried for who will be involved with early-Rebellion Era Han (Thrawn, Karrde, Mara... the possibilities are endless and horrifying)...
Well. That didn't really turn out to be anything at all.
It's a comic that's a sort of MacGuffin hunt including Han, Lando, Chewie, and a bunch of bounty hunters. It was written a few years after Rebel Dawn and alludes to some of those events. For instance, Lando holds a grudge against Han most of the time because of the Ylesia incident. Here's the wook page.
You should write it.
Still wary of Lando's involvement, and Zahn's OC obsession (when there are SO MANY existing characters that would be awesome for this), but I have to admit, that's a pretty cover and I've been waiting for someone to use that title for like ten years.
Ahh OK thanks
How many times are they going to separate and "refriend"?
Its like a bad soap opera.
Didnt Zahn promise the whole crew to be i the cover.Here is my hope for the crew:
It is going to feature Karrde... or Car'das... one of them I guarantee* it
*This is not a guarantee...
This one right here.
Realistically, I could see Zahn using Booster.
Eh, Zahn played around with his OCs in Allegiance and Choices of One because they were clearly conceptualized as ways of playing around with his OCs. Here, with it conceptualized around Zahn doing something different and going off with just a Han/Chewie/Lando adventure, I wouldn't be as concerned with him wedging in too much of his own universe. Karrde might show up, but that's about it. He's not going to fill out the whole dozen or however many with Karrde, though. He'll have to play with some existing characters, I think.
When was Booster on Kessel again?
