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.

One of our favorite Star Wars authors of all time, John Ostrander is set to pen the next big Star Wars series from Dark Horse.

According to Dark Horse:”Ostrander, who was part of the Dark Horse panel, described it as “James Bond meets Star Wars.” He said that because the story’s superspy for the Sith is working in the classic era of the films, we may see the return of several beloved characters, including Han Solo, Leia, and Winter.”

Sounds good to us. We have seen some limited detective type novels in the Star Wars universe, but never in the comics..
