Mara Jade Skywalker didn’t have to die at the hands of Darth Caedus.

It was a wasted empty death…

Lucas Licensing apparently allowed this disaster to happen and now we should call on them to reverse it. The Sith have the power to bring back the dead and so too then does the Force.

Whether it is Ben or Luke Skywalker or even someone else I don’t care. I just want Mara Jade back.

To that end we here at ShowMeSciFi have started a petition to Bring Back Mara Jade.

Please sign in and together we can be THE FORCE that will bring Mara back.

I wasn’t expecting to get Star Wars Legacy of the Force Sacrifice until tomorrow (May 29th) but actually got a copy today May 28th! HURRAY!

Yes we all know the basic spoilers already.

That said Exile was an awesome book and there is alot of ground to cover in Sacrifice.

Expect to see a few less posts on ShowMeSciFi in the coming days as I dedicate every spare moment to reading this.

FINALLY.

Cade Skywalker returns and with him one of the best Legacy stories in a while (not that the issue 10 wasn’t great..but this one was over the top). Oh and the incomparable art of Jan Duursema returns too…

VADER.

Mara Jade.

THE FREAKIN VONG!!!

They all make an appearance in this issue that finally sees Cade return to the Jedi, to Ossus and to his destiny. His former bounty hunter pals get captured by Krayt’s empire too so the threads of this story are rapidly converging..as Cade seeks his Jedi heritage and the rest of universe is out looking for Cade.

What’s the deal with the Vong?

Will they side with the Jedi and/or Emperor Fel to overturn the Sith? Are they out to destroy the Jedi? the Imperial Remnant on Bastion?? Who knows?!? All I know is that it adds another dimension to an already wickedly cool comic book storyline.

Awesome story..AWESOME ART that is beyond compare. Legacy continues to impress and exceed all expectations.

AND only 4 more issues until the truth is revealed about who Darth Krayt really is.

Star Wars Allegiance review April 3, 2007

allegiance.jpgStar Wars Allegiance by: Timothy Zahn.

Zahn is undoubtedly one of the greatest Star Wars writers working today, with his milestone Heir To Empire, Hand of Thrawn and Outbound Flight books among his accomplishments.

Unfortunately Allegiance does not rank among Zahn’s great works.

In my estimation it’s actually the worst Star Wars book he has ever written.

While all Star Wars books are written to the same formula, it’s a formula that is very poorly executed by Zahn in Allegiance.

The primary plot line – what would happen if Stormtroopers deserted their post but still remained loyal to the Empire? is a solid thread and the only thing that works.

Mara Jade makes an interesting subplot line as the Emperor’s Hand, but the plot itself is very weak as Jade herself doesn’t really understand who she is chasing or what’s going on – unfortunately neither do the readers.

The weak subplots of Leia trying to pull together Rebel factions and the other subplot with the various pirate groups (which may or may be traitors to the Empire that Mara Jade is chasing) are both very weak and barely understandable.

In fact, I felt like giving up on this book midway through since it was so poorly written from a plot point of view.

Zahn has left the door open for more books in which his deserter Stormtroopers have adventures. I would hope that when/if Lucas Licensing allows such a work to go forward that that the concurrent plot lines are properly developed with characters and not caricatures.

Allegiance is a book that was disappointing and IS NOT recommended by ShowMeSciFi.
