Krifing AMAAAZING!

No – not Vector in general – but this issue in particular was hands down – INCREDIBLE. It really finished off the plot elements first laid out in part 11 last month.

After 12 issues spanning the entire Dark Horse Star Wars canon Vector comes to an end – but the Vector angle and the Muir Talisman is almost a side-show in this final issue of Vector isn’t it?

Cade is so powerful in the force that Muir lasts what? One frame? Then he’s toast. Does that make Cade the most powerful Jedi in 40,000 years??

Too bad for Celeste Morne though – I was kind of hoping that she would somehow survive – but what was that about her thinking that Zayne Carrick sent Cade for her? Nonsense!

And poor Azlyn Rae – will she be healed?

But the biggest plot dev by far – and the only one that makes Vector as a series worthwhile is the defeat of Darth Krayt.

I did not see that one coming – nor did I see Darth Wrylock’s deception either – then again that’s the Sith way isn’t it?

Will Krayt return – i’d say it’s 50/50 at this point..but at least Vector is now done so we can finally get on with the rest of the Star Wars universe!

Was Vector a success?

As a loyal Dark Horse reader – i would have read all the titles anyways. I’m not sure that it pulled in new readers – but it was neat to have some small link spanning all the Star Wars titles. In the end though, Vector fell apart and the AWESOMENESS of Legacy just blew it out of the water.

WOWOWOWOWOWOW.

Last issue was solid but this issue was non stop cover to cover action.

What a great kriffing issue. The double cross (or maybe triple cross?) is in with the Muir Talisman and its human host vs Cade Skywalker vs. Darth Krayt vs. The Imperial Knights.

Will Karness Muir take hold of Cade? (maybe next issue) – but still seeing Krayt in this position is awesome – i doubt we’ll see the end of Krayt, but hey anything can happen.

and what about Darth Talon (aka the Sith Hottie?) SHE’S BAAACK and she still has the hots for Cade (where was Delilah Blue ?)

The artwork – always great in Legacy was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT in this issue – the cell arrangement and powerful imagery is what great storytelling and great comic books are all about.

But of course this issue is just a stepping stone to the final issue of Vector!! Vector before it hit Legacy was kinda ok – in Legacy it got real good real fast.

I suspect that Karness Muir and/or the Talisman will be destroyed – but that somehow Celeste Morne survives (but maybe i’m wrong). In any event it will bring to a close a year of wondering where this would end – and it might be the end for Krayt too.

Let’s be frank here – Vector was just ok till it hit Legacy.

Legacy has made Vector great and this issue is proof of that fact. Celeste Morne is still the central figure but Cade’s new love interest makes things interesting as does Cade’s own relationship with the Force.

And what about Emperor Roan Fel? This is the first we’ve seen of him in months – and he’s just as evil as Krayt isn’t he?

Will the Muir Talisman take over Cade at some point? I think so. Will Cade kill Darth Krayt? That i don’t think so – but perhaps Krayt will end the Vector and the Muir Talisman forever

So Vector finally hits Star Wars Legacy…but it really seems like a stretch to me..so Celeste Morne just floats in space for over a hundred years…waiting??

And Celeste hasn’t aged a day?

I dunno..it’s a really really weak link from the last Vector issue in Rebellion.

But the weak link aside — this is what Celeste was born to do…an ancient Jedi with an ancient Sith to team up against Darth Krayt and destroy the Sith..

Frankly Vector has been less than spectacular overall..but Legacy of course is awesome which no doubt will rub off on Vector..but make no mistake about it..it’s not Vector that will make Legacy better but Legacy which will make Vector better.

If Dark Horse is ever to attemp such a multi-timeline story again i hope they just do a time travel – force flow walking thing. The linear timeline here just sucks.

So Celeste Morne finally gets rid of the Talisman and then…
WHAT WHAT WHAT???

She fights to get it back?

Then she just flies off ..into the galaxy? To be found again in 137 years when next we see her in Legacy??

HUh?

Vector has been decent thus far but this recent issue just doesn’t make sense.

It’s just – ok lets throw Luke Skywalker in there for an issue and then move on. It’s really kinda lame and frankly we the readers deserve more.

Let’s hope that somehow the Star Wars Legacy writers can set things straight and really provide us with a real BANG for the finale of Vector.

So Vector now hits Rebellion and Luke Skywalker..and it looks like fun…

Vader left Celeste Morne (and Vector) 20 years ago (in the timeline) in Dark Times # 12 apparently Celeste is still alive and Vader hasn’t forgotten about her either.

Will Luke – see the good in Celeste and turn her back from the Dark Side?

i guess we’ll find out…we can assume that Luke survives as does Celeste..but how Celeste gets frozen to survive till her next jump – the Star Wars Legacy era…we’ll have to wait till Rebellion #16 to find out.

So far – 7 issues into Vector we’ve had numerous confrontations and the timelines between eras has been stitched together reasonably well..with five issues or so left to go.

What a great ending to this story arc… i frankly didn’t expect Deena Shan to survive but i’m glad that she did.

She really showed her strength in the last issue and this issue it all really comes together – the Rebellion wins a small victory indeed.

Amazing really how this story came together with the rebels getting stuck at the fuelling station, getting stuck and then ending up blowing the whole thing up – without everyone dying in the process.

Next issue Vector comes to Rebellion – i wonder who will face off against Celeste Morne and the Muir Talisman..

This Small Victories storyline is really quite entertaining.

In this issue we’ve got tonnes of action and we really don’t know yet how this will end up.

Deena Shan is a great heroine and I really hope she survives though that’s up in the air.

Will the Rebels make it back to save their friends? Of course they will, but someone won’t make it…

On an Imperial station, Luke and Leia do their best to distract their cruel captor from the rest of Rebels still loose in the facility. Unfortunately, Imperials have found Deena Shan, the Rebel team’s last hope for success. Deena is cornered into a decision of disastrous proportions for herself and everyone around her. By the time Ackbar deems a rescue mission worth the risk, there may be no one left to save.

Star Wars Rebellion is not brilliant comic book writing — but it sure is decent fun.

Sure you can predict/guess what the next page will bring but it’s still fun getting there. Rebellion #12 is a case in point. We know that the rebels will get caught ..but it’s still neat to see how and where…(and then eventually how they’ll escape).

Will Deena escape?? That we don’t know for sure do we? She’s a minor character so Dark Horse could easily kill her off..or…?

Will Rebel One come back for their pals? I dunno..but i bet they will. Overall an interesting (though predictable) issue in a series that we’re really starting to like (even though it’s pulp!)

Star Wars Rebellion is a misplaced comic book series in the new Dark Horse Star Wars lineup.

It lacks the drama and direction of Knights of the Old Republic, the awesomeness of Legacy and the darkness of Dark Times.

It’s just basic PULP comic stuff.

The ridiculous amount of time between issues also makes this a stoopid series to even try and follow (but we do, not sure what that says about us).

Basic story in this issue, transparent 2D cardboard cutout characters and pedestrian art.

If you’re looking for pulp Star Wars ..here ya go!
