Star Wars Legacy is our favorite Star Wars storyline of the expanded universe. In a real sense, it’s the title that got us back into comics after a 20 year absence.

That was for the first Star Wars Legacy – the one about Cade Skywalker. The one written by the awesome John Ostrander with art by incomparable Jane Duursema.

The new Legacy is an insult to that first series.

Sure it takes place in the same time period – actually just after the Legacy War series ended. But this is not the same Legacy.

For one, the artwork is terrible.

Yeaah i know the cover is sweet — the interior art however is the worst we’ve seen in a Dark Horse title in years.

The story is slow and our new Solo heroine – isn’t the same kind of engaging character like Cade was – in fact she’s boring (so far).

In contrast that first Legacy series so totally blew our socks off – so perhaps we just have extremely high expectations – but that’s Dark Horse’s fault. They created the greatest Star Wars comic of all time with the first Star Wars Legacy – the new Legacy so far doesn’t live up to that legacy.

Star Wars Legacy WAR Ends – The end of the Legacy Era. Will Cade Skywalker survive? May 23, 2011

This week will see the END

THE FINALE

(there ain’t NO MORE)

of the greatest SciFi comic book series of all time.

After 56 issues (50 regular and 6 Legacy War), Star Wars Legacy is coming to a close with Star Wars Legacy: War #6. We don’t think that Dark Horse will be extending beyond this (but hey those FRAKKING DOUCHE BAGS have done this to us before).

Legacy coming to an end…will Cade survive? Will Darth Krayt? Cade’s mom has gotta be toast? Will Roan Fel emerge as the new emperor? Will the galaxy be united?

There are so many questions and so many sub-plots in play, we don’t know HOW Dark Horse can wrap this up in one issue. In any event, Legacy writers and artists, John Ostrander in particular has never disappointed us and we can hardly wait to pick this book up.

Wow…where do we begin to review a comic as fantastic as Dark Horse’s Star Wars Legacy War #3?

After 52 issues, Morrigan Cade finally reveals herself to her son an Nyna Calixte – SHOCKING that after all this time, he had no idea about the double life…

Yet he still knew about his sister…

Andwhat was up with Darth Talon showing up with a carbonite slab?

COME ON? Don’t tell me that Cade couldn’t smell a trap..that just seems odd…then again..it’s a trap within a trap within a trap isn’t it?

Cade figured he outsmarted Krayt by making a stand, which as it turns is exactly what Krayt figured Cade would do…

Brilliant.

For the first time ever we have the Galactic Alliance, Roan Fel’s Empire, Krayt’s Empire and the Jedi in one place.WOW.

wE CAN hardly wait till next month to see the action unfold.

Star Wars Legacy War #2 Is Cade Skywalker’s Mom Toast? February 11, 2011

It’s hard to believe that over the course of 51 issues (50 regular series and 1 of War) that Cade Skywalker had NEVER

NEVER

Met Admiral Gar Stazi before. That’s shocking.

But it’s great that they finally have – and oh yeah Darth Krayt should be shaking in his big Sith boots.

Cade is Sith Killing Machine and he’s unstoppable now.

But his mom is stoppable – Is She Dead now? Somehow we don’t think so and it’s now likely that she’ll move full time to helping her son the Galactic Alliance and Roan Fel…

Speaking of Roan Fel – aside from running away from Sith — what’s up with him? He’s the weak link of the bunch. Not the ultra-dude that Cade is, not the General like Gar Stazi and not the maniac that Krayt is now becomming either.

All in all, this issue continues to remind us why Star Wars Legacy is the best comic book title ever produced by Dark Horse.

Star Wars Legacy War #1- one word review – AWESOME December 26, 2010

Yes we were not happy when Dark Horse frakked us around by telling us that issue #50 of Legacy was the end.

We found out later that Dark Horse just wanted to renumber the series and after a few months of waiting here we are with Star Wars Legacy:War #1.

This series picks up precisely where Legacy #50 ends. Darth Krayt is back and yes he’s pissed.

First stop is Darth Wrylock  which is a great set of panels as master and traitor square off as all Sith must. No this isn’t the rule of two in the Krayt’s One Sith Empire – but it’s still apparently the rule that all Sith must covet advancement and to be ready to kill their master to achieve that.

We see Roan Fel in this issue too – but no views into the Galactic Alliance.

And of course there is Cade Skywalker – who know has both his ‘brother’ and Delilah Blue fully onside to help him take down the Sith.

And oh yeah, Cade’s mama – the Moff – has regrets — nice.

Brilliant.

The Legacy story from the very first issue – of the original numbering – has been fantastic. War is up to the legacy of…well Star Wars Legacy – no tip toeing around here either, this series is about conflict, battle, struggle and challenge. We couldn’t be happier or more excited!!

Star Wars Legacy #50 Disappoints August 24, 2010

Star Wars Legacy #50 was supposed to be the final issue of Star Wars Legacy.

BUT IT’S NOT.

The sleemos at Dark Horse are only putting the series on hiatus and then coming back at us with a ‘mini-series’ in december.

Yeaah that’s low-ball Hutt scum territory. Instead of continuing the series for another 6 issues – they scare the bantha poodu out of us and tell us they’re canceling the series.

The final #50 – regular Legacy issue was good – but it wasn’t good enough to be the FINAL issue of the series regular run. Nothing is really resolved – except well that Darth Krayt is back..and oh yeah Cade is going to hunt him again – BIG KRIFFING DEAL – been there, done that and read that before.

With so many layers in Legacy, there are so many loose ends and none were wrapped up in this issue. It’s not a final issue and not deserving finale for the final issue of the greatest Star Wars comic ever written/drawn.

We don’t understand Dark Horse – or why they’d screw with us this way – it’s not cool. YES we’re very excited for the new Legacy mini-series, but we would have been EVEN HAPPIER if there would be an issue 51 coming out in September.

Star Wars Legacy #49 – What Now Dark Horse???? July 12, 2010

It’s hard to believe and accept that Star Wars Legacy is almost done.
Issue #49 is the second last issue and there is so much left undiscovered and unresolved.
So we’ve got Cade still on a Sith killing mission and that’s great, he’s now on Utapau knocking down the sith and he’ll come in contact with the Galactic Alliance too for the first time in…oh what 50 issues?!!

The Princess Fel being held by her former Imperial Knight master – now turned Sith – is kinda of a neat twist too..but with so much going on , it’s impact is marginal.

How will this series end? Will Fel return to control? Where is Krayt? Will Cade Skywalker become the Emperor?

so very many things going on..this series could AND SHOULD continued for a very long time.

It’s a shame and a travesty that Dark Horse is ending this series at #50. They’ve promised some kind of surprise — so we’ll see what they’ve got in store…but seeing as Legacy is without a doubt ..THE GREATEST STAR WARS COMIC OF ALL TIME …we doubt they’ll surprise us.

WOW. KRIFFING WOW.

So much action and plot in this issue, it’s nearly impossible to think of anything to say other than..

WOW.

Cade is one serious Sith hunting machine now – he is the ultimate sith/jedi hybrid and we doubt there is any force in the universe that can stop him now.

The princess FINALLY makes her return appearance (she has been so underutilized in this series..)

And the biggest surprise on the last page of this issue…the man that created the new Sith isn’t dead after all…then again did anyone of us really think he wouldn’t return??

Star Wars: Legacy #47 The Sith Kill All Life on Dac. May 5, 2010

Make not mistake about it — the Sith of Star Wars Legacy show no mercy and no compassion to anyone.

Just look at what they do to Dac in this issue.

We didn’t like this issue — large parts of the story don’t make sense.

For example, how did the GA jump into the system undetected in the first place?

Also if the virus took a few days to wipe out the whole population – doesn’ t that imply that even those that escaped were still susceptible to the toxin? Making escape irrelevant right?

Star Wars Legacy #46 Cade Skywalker Turns to the Light April 12, 2010

Cade Skywalker isn’t a Jedi

He isn’t a Sith either.

He is what the Force made him – or so he says.

This issue we get to see Cade unleash his Dark Side and his Light Side – yeaah it was cheesy that he used the light to save the Zeltron Delilah Blue – but also VERY VERY cool.

Cade is not a total stim junkie – he does have the heart of Jedi – and the power of the Sith within him.

Ohh and there’s more in this issue too isn’t there? Emperor Fel’s daughter is captured by the Sith!! how did that happen?

Sooo much going on in this one issue it’s hard to review, but also ooooooh so enjoyable.

We finally find out who is behind the Vongforms – none other than Darth Maladi who is now trying to take over the sith herself. Even more surprising is that she is trying to turn Cade back to the Dark Side – probably not a good thing for her in the end since he’s likely the most powerful Sith or Jedi in the Universe.

Will Cade save Delilah Blue? I sure hope so – i’d sure miss seeing that Zeltron hanging off Cade.

And what about the big Jedi/Roan Fel /Imperial Sith battle?

WOW – talk about action.

No surprise that the allies get together and we knew the Sith Imperials were coming but still fun to see. How Capt Yag will somehow not shoot down her own mother in the next issue  – i don’t know…

Star Wars Legacy #42 – Admiral Stazi takes a fall December 25, 2009

There are so many layers of plots and sub-plots in Star Wars Legacy – sometimes it’s hard to keep them all straight.

One of the most interesting  – and the one that always has the biggest ships and the biggest battles are the plotlines/issues with Gar Stazi and the Galactic Alliance.

This is a sort of in-between issue that keeps the overall plot moving – stazi gets shot at and perhaps more importantly there is a link-up btwn the Alliance, the Jedi and the Imperial Knights led by the true Emperor Roan Fel.

The art – as always is astounding though this time we can’t credit our usual illustrator –

Starting with this comic – we’re officially launching our ShowMeSciFiComics subsite – just for comic reviews. We’ll still review them here – but we’ll just do the longer versions over there.

As well look on Showmescificomics.com for our take on what to look for in SciFiComics each and every week.

Star Wars: Legacy #36 -Krayt Imperials vs Fel Imperials vs Galactic Alliance June 1, 2009

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.

One of the best parts about Star Wars Legacy is the complexity of the larger Star Wars universe.
But sometimes it gets a little too complex.

In this issue we get a one off story updating us on the status of the Galactic Alliance fleet which is now allied with Roan Fel’s Imperial Fleet.

They run into an engagement with Krayt’s imperials – and guess what?
The Imperials – Krayt or Fel’s all kinda look the same. Come to think of Stazi’s GA ships all look like Imperial star destroyers too (cause the y are)

We had to re-read several sections of this issue several times to try and keeps sides straight and figure out who was who (and on which side).

That’s kinda neat actually ..a little confusing but again it shows the complexity of the Legacy universe.

Missing from this issue are the Jedi – who apparently have no fleets of their own and are just bystanders in this whole movement of Armada’s business

Star Wars Legacy #35 Cade is a SCUMBAG May 15, 2009

After all he’s been through, Cade Skywalker is still scum.

He defeated Darth Krayt, was hailed as a savior of the Jedi Order and maybe even the Galactic Alliance itself but in the end Cade is a troubled man.

When we first met Cade way back in the first issue of this series he was hiding who he was and living out his life as a bounty hunter.

Then over the course of the last three years he has revealed who he really is, his friends have found out who he really is but none of that matters.

At the core of his being Cade Skywalker is bounty hunter scum.

In this issue he ends up starting a bar fight and nearly turns to the dark side to kill his cousin.

For what??

It’s his nature. Cade is no Jedi hero. He is a Skywalker but he is not the heir to the Luke Skywalker legacy.

That’s fine by us and what makes Legacy one of the best Star Wars storylines of all time.

It would have been easy for this series to be just about the transformation of Cade from bounty hunter to Jedi hero. But life is never that easy and neither is this series. It’s a complex series where heroes are villains and there are no clear answers.

At the end of this issue, Cade returns to the life he had where this series began. A disreputable scum bag on the run.

Star Wars Legacy is the best star wars comic series of all time – and it just keeps getting better.

After a little hiatus we’re back to the main plotline – where Darth Krayt is dead – or is he?

Somehow I think we will see him again.

Really cool to see Darthy Wyyrolok and his DAUGHTER Saarai.

Lord Stryfe – the dude on the cover – is clearly in for more panel time too and he’s one mean Sith.

And what about Azlyn Rae ? Going into a Vader type suit? Cade is going to go nuts!!!

Awesome art again from Omar Francia. The AT-AT swimmer? come on that was kriffing incredible.

The plot as always was solid – here we are finishing this little story arc that began in issue 32.

Just when we think the Imperial Knight will go home to his emperor..he turns a bit to stay and defend the mon cal! what a great angle and a solid knight to boot.

More importantly we finally get the continuity link we’ve been waiting for the past three years for Roan Fel.
The first Emperor was Jagged Fel – yup i’d assume that’s the same Jagged Fel that was hooking up with Jania Solo. So Roan Fel is likely a Solo grandson!!!

How’s that for a twist!!

I had almost forgotten about Krayt’s order to exterminate the Mon cal in Legacy #22/ but here we are ..Mr. Ostrander never forgets does he…

Though this is Jan Duresema’s art (wasn’t last time the Mon Cal were center stage either)..Omar Francia has done one of the most awesome covers and his interior artwork is AMAZING.

SeaTroopers? wow!!! makes good sense but we’ve never seen that before ..

And what’s up with an Imperial Knight helping out the Mon Cal?

ooh and what about Sith Scientist Vul Isen ? The dude’s head is a skull! We’ve never seen Sith scientists before…and we’ve never see the Leviathan either..neat idea a force sucking sea beast…

Sure we didn’t have Krayt or Cade in this issue..but after Vector , i think they all deserve a rest. It’s not like the rest of us are suffering either…with a new awesome storyline here – Legacy continues to deliver THE BEST Star Wars stories available anywhere today.

Darth Wyyrlok is one mean Sith dude.

We haven’t seen much of him to date but this issue changes that with an entire issue dedicated to him and what an issue it is!

Darth Wyyrlok proves he is more powerful than an Ancient Sith using the Force alone – awesome!!

We also learn of his unwavering loyalty towards Darth Krayt which no doubt will also play a role as the story progresses…Oh and hey Darth Talon (aka The Sith HOttie) isn’t dead and is coming back!!

All this and next issue Vector finally hits its stretch run finding it’s finale in the best Star Wars series ever created…should be a real rush.

Alrighty so the Jedi council didn’t authorize Cade to go kill Darth Krayt..boo hoo…

It doesn’t make much difference for our story does it?

Now we’ve got a Cade and his posse of well wishers and watcher joining him in his own crusade to take on Darth Krayt.

Still not a whole lot of good stuff on the Princess in this issue, she seems very remote and not nearly as personable as she was inside of the first ten issues….i wonder what happened..

It’s also been a while since we’ve seen the Galactic Alliance proper…so hopefull we’ll seen them soon too and end up with new super alliance with Fel, Cade and friends and the GA against Krayt.
