Just wow.
What an amazing finale to an amazing series.
Cade chooses the light and drives his lightsaber through Darth Krayt
cade’s mom saves cade with a family pic
Roan Fel dies..
The galaxy is ruled by a triumvirate of empire, alliance and jedi..

Oh and Cade? Back to being a pirate….

This is an ending that solves most of the loose ends..and is a real ending…..

Sure the sith will come back one day…but for now everything has been settled. From begining to the end Legacy has been the best Star Wars comic of all time and one of the best stories in the entire cannon.

Briiliant storytelling, matched with glorious artwork combined to deliver an experience that we will dearly miss.

And yes we will miss Cade…..but somehow, we don’t think we’ve seen the last of him yet…

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 #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!!!

Star Wars: Legacy #33 — Jaged Fel the First Galactic Alliance Emperor!! March 5, 2009

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.

Star Wars Legacy #27 Darth Wyyrlok Rocks! September 3, 2008

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.

Star Wars Legacy #24 – Uncle Nate Skywalker May 27, 2008

Just when you thought Star Wars Legacy couldn’t get any better – or more complex – it does.

Uncle Nate Skywalker just added a whole new dimension.

Cade kinda/sort looks like Uncle Nate and it’s kinda cool to see that Cade isn’t the only Skywalker of the Legacy era to have gone the rough and tumble route. There was no indication whatsoever at the end of Legacy #23 that Nate was a Skywalker or Cade’s real uncle.

We finally find out a little more about why Cade didn’t know about his mother…and we get a little bit of insight into Cade’s upbringing…

Oh and a nifty new former ‘beau?’ from the Jedi Academy who is really an Imperial Knight. Wicked cool stuff.

It looks like we finally might see Cade come face to face with the Princess and (maybe Roan Fel too) after what seems like a 14 issues hiatus.

Star Wars Legacy #23 Cade is BACK! May 12, 2008

Cade Skywalker is back!

Roan Fel is Back!

And yes Legacy is still awesome.

Great to see Cade return to his bounty hunter friends — he is not a Jedi and he’s not a Sith. Cade Skywalker is the Han Solo of Skywalkers..he’s rough and he speaks Huttese.

Nice to see that Darth Talon isn’t dead yet either (she’s the hottest Sith ever) though that was just a one cell image with her in the bacta tank so it’ll take some time till we see her again.

Nice to see Roan Fel and his daughter — that’s a storyline that has been neglected for what…a year at this point?

So much going on in this series it’s hard to even begin to speculate what comes next but just seeing each of the pieces moving around is fun.

And last but not least, Jan Duursema the finest artist in the expanded Star Wars universe is back! hurray.

Kill all the Mon Cals? a bit extreme even for a Sith.

A real solid plot driving story for the wider (no Cade Skywalker) Star Wars Legacy story…and great to see the GA and Roan Fel’s empire perhaps link up to take on Krayt’s empire.

Art in his is ok, but not great by Legacy standards… I can hardly wait till Jan Duresema comes back.
for that matter i can hardly wait to see what’s going on with Roan Fel..or his daughter! How many issues has it been since we saw them last?

TOO MANY.

But soon…soon all will be revealed (or at least we hope it will).
