    Star Wars: Legacy #0

    Writer: John Ostrander
    Artist: Jan Duursema, Sean Cooke
    Cover Artist: Jan Duursema





    Welcome to the beginning of a grand, new chapter in the Star Wars saga!

    More than a hundred years have passed since the events in Return of the Jedi and the days of the New Jedi Order. There is a new evil gripping the galaxy, shattering a resurgent Empire and seeking to destroy the last of the Jedi. Even as their power is failing, the Jedi hold to one final hope: the last remaining heir to the Skywalker legacy.

    It's a brave new galaxy for Star Wars fans, at once familiar and surprising-interplanetary intrigue and adventure on an epic scale; iconic heroes and villains cast in new roles and caught in surprising new situations. Everything you've loved about Star Wars, but nothing you expect!

    This special 25¢ comic sets the stage for the launch of the new Star Wars: Legacy series, which begins in June!



    Pub. Date: May 17, 2006
    Format: Full color, 32 pages.
    Price: $0.25 [/blockquote]

    Nope, that's the correct solicitation, the one that was specifically reworded to that form from the incorrect one on TOS. :)

    Yeah, DH.com had the right one and SW.com had the wrong one. Until Randy b!tch-slapped Paul Ens that is ;)

    I hope Cade has flashbacks to his jedi training like they did with Quinlan Vos. And woundn't be something if R2 and C-3PO are still hangin around with a Skywalker.

    Her arm looks a bit artificial. I wonder, could this be the reason for [hl=black]Rar's[/hl] survival? Aside from that, I just want to say she's for all intents and purposes wearing a bikini! Wasn't she partial to that clothing?

    100yrs from ROTJ?

    Judging by the age of the Twi'lek on the cover it seems unlikely to be Rar herself, though... she was rather... shall I say... outgoing, so it wouldn't be much of a stretch to think she may have left behind a few progenies.

    Though it'll probably just end up being your typical eye-candy teenage-boy attracting twi'lek chic'.

    I'm not so sure...

    Jan said the garb and tattoos weren't so much "fanservice" per say, but rather a reflection of the Twi'lek's tribal nature.

    Yes, the only reason the Twi'lek is in a bikini is to show her tattoos which are along the lines of Pict bodypaint (read Stover's first 2 books Iron Dawn and Jericho Moon).

    Illuminatus, chill.

    the phrase is-- "seeking to destroy the last of the Jedi" Not the Jedi are nearly wiped out or even nearly extinct. Why not let this unfold a bit more before getting all grumpy?

    If we spelled out exactly what was happening there would be no point in reading the book would there?

    I don´t think the ending is such a problem;), but the problems are that the beginning is now so vague - not after LEGACY 0, but now and we have months to speculate before that - and that at the same time that Dark Horse is plotting the timeline from circa 140 ABY forward, Del Rey is plotting the timeline from 40 to 140 ABY. One hopes, that like people mining a road under a mountain chain from two directions simultaneously, the two timelines will at one point merge to each other without problems. But it´s a risky enterprise.[face_plain]

    I think he was talking to Illuminatus. Excellence is famous for hating Star Wars novels that feature chracters he knows aren't going to die.
