Star Wars : Legacy # 8 – The Sith Reclaim the Empire February 18, 2007

Just when I thought that Star Wars Legacy couldn’t get any better along comes this issue. It’s a flashback issue occurring before the events of the first issue – way before . We finally get to see how the Sith ended up in control of the Empire after the defeat of the Galactic Alliance, we also see that the rightful Emperor Roan Fel was not at fault for the massacre of the Jedi on Ossus.

The story is just awesome. If you’ve never read Legacy – this is an excellent issue to get started with.

The art ..well it’s not up to the same level as the first seven issues. There is a good reason for that..the art is not done by Jan Duursema. The Sith (particularly Darth Krayt) look kinda lame and overall it’s not the jaw dropping magnificence that the Duursema provides.

Apparently Jan Duursema is working ahead on the next story arc – so we the fans have to settle with second rate artists until her return…considering how awesome the story is…and with the expectation that Duursema is returning I suppose it’s a fair trade off.

The first issue of Legacy revealed the facts of the attack on the Jedi Academy on Ossus and of the betrayal of Emperor Roan Fel by Darth Krayt and the Sith. Now it is time to learn of the machinations and of the secret alliances behind those actions.

Grand Moff Nyna Calixte supervises intelligence gathering for the Empire. Darth Maladi does the same for the Sith. Together they could form an unbeatable team, able to sway the course of a galaxy. That is, if they don’t destroy one another first!

From the ambush of the Galactic Alliance’s fleet to Roan Fel’s narrow escape from assassination, the true story of the Sith overthrow of the Empire can at last be told!
