    Sounds like this is the continuation of Republic. Sounds excellent. I cannot wait.

    That's very exciting. I can't say that I'm really suprised, but I'm looking forward to it.

    Wonder where Palpatine is in that second image? Doesn't look like any of his offices or throne rooms we've seen so far.

    Also, "intertwines itself with some of the events in Jim Luceno's novel "Dark Lord", eh? Invasion of Kashyyyk, anyone? :cool:

    That's Palpatine's new "office," as described in "Dark Lord."

    Holy Smokes!

    Didn't anyone notice?!? That Jedi's carrying "Stargate SG-1" weaponry! Or at least a weapon very strongly reminiscent of it.....

    LOL, well it reminds me too of a P-90. Wouldnt be the first time we see something from Stargate slipping into the GFFA. We have the Infinity Gates and this curious looking thing behind Palpatine:

    :p

    Anyway I am certainly looking forward to this series.

    The one in the EmPalSuRecon Center? His pseudo-throne room where Bail and co meet with him?

    Right now, my wallet is looking at me pitifully...

    Nice looking work from what we've seen so far. A Dark Times comic is what I've been waiting for. I hope it's as good as it seems at the moment.

    This is awsome! This is the series I've been waiting for (and expecting for quite some time :p)!



    I suppose it's too early to dream that Palpatine's office is in Imperial Palace though :p ...right?



    Annyway, it is very cool just seeing the mix of PT and OT characters. Vader, Palpatine and Pestage, along with Mas Amedda on PT Coruscant! :D :D :D


    *nerdgasm*


    Plus we get to see more of Legola... erm... Das!






    Curse you Dark Horse for making such cool products that I can't resist the urge to buy them! :_| It was so simple when all I cared about was Republic... :(

    You're not kidding. :oops:

    Having tried and liked Legacy this comes around. I've just read Dark Lord and thought there's a lot of potential in that sort of timeframe (and I think Palpatines great).

    Think I'm going to have to ask for a rise or find a new job.

    I don't think it's been built (or expanded, or whatever) at this point. Doesn't Palpy say something to that effect in Dark Lord?

    Coolness! This looks really interesting. I agree that it's another item making my wallet lighter but I believe it's a worthy cause

    That's good considering that Rebellion hasn't been all that great so far. I'm looking forward to checking it out.

    Mr. Stradley, please don't make Vader "weak". Why these retcons are happnening after 30 years is beyond me.

    Dadadadadaaaaah...I'm loving it.

    I haven't been buying KotOR, so this doesn't bug my bank account too much. More Jedi on the run. Certainly explains why so few dark times novels have been announced...

    So they're choosing "Dass" as the correct version? Pity, I liked "Das" much better.
