I remember very well the day i saw Star Wars Legacy issue #0 on the stand.

It was a great day.

That first issue #0 introduced me to a new wildly exciting universe of Star Wars. A universe where the Sith outnumber the Jedi, Jedi serve an Emperor in Exile, A Sith rules on Coruscant and the last Skywalker is a death stick stoking bounty hunter. AMAZING.

Alot has happened in the Star Wars Legacy universe in the last 18 months and Dark Horse has decided to update issue #0 which was an overview handbook of the people, places and ships in the series.

While the original issue #0 was only $0.25, TFAW has the 0 1/2 issue listed on pre-order at $2.39 (which is still a deal).

A year-and-a-half ago, we introduced you to Legacy-the future of Star Wars. The series’ original issue #0 has long been sold-out, and the information contained therein unavailable . . . until now. This greatly expanded and updated edition contains all of the information new readers need and that longtime readers are craving.

Get the lowdown on all your favorite characters, details on the ships and vehicles they pilot, and the latest on who’s related to who! This is a must-have handbook for the future of the Star Wars glaxy!

* Completely reconfigured from the original edition, with lots of new entries and information!

I can hardly wait! Though we all have too – Star Wars Legacy #0 1/2 doesn’t officially come out until December 19, 2007

I FINALLY got a copy of Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen #1 the other day. It has been sold out nearly everywhere I looked – but but favorite local seller ordered it and held a copy for me (barely).

NO this is not Star Wars Legacy. It is not the greatest SciFi comic of all time.

BUT IT IS COLBERT

and it’s funny in a campy satirical kind of way.

Tek Jansen is a bumbling version of Colbert himself i suspect doing good in the galaxy and having his way with the women folk whom he saves and appreciate his efforts. He doesn’t listen to his superiors and ends up making more trouble than he saves. His best friend is the embodiment of evil that he carries around in a little cage – and which hates him too.

Yes it’s a bit weird – but what did you expect?

Colbert is a cultural icon and Tek Jansen is his SciFi bible, his Moses if you will. Jansen will lead the nation to the promised land and along the way he’ll part the galactic skyways and bring manna to the less fortunate.

Though far be it for me.. a mere serf of the Colbert Nation to criticize Pappa Bear’s disciple but…Oni Press (publishers of Tek Jansen) have chosen perhaps the most appalling paper stock i have ever felt. Usually you don’t think much of the paper on which a comic is printed..but Jansen feels like it was printed on photocopy paper…surely he deserved better..doesn’t he Mr. Colbert???
