Before we bid 2020 a final farewell, we share some of our favorite writing from the past year.  We wish all of you a happy and healthy New Year, with the hope for brighter days in 2021.   What makes someone strong with the Force? After all, it surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy […]

“Star Wars Legacy: War”

By | Aug 20, 2020 | Reviews

Sometimes the inner workings of comic book companies is too arcane, even for someone who follows this stuff day in and day out. I cannot properly explain why “Star Wars Legacy” was prematurely canceled after 50 issues, only to be brought back for a final 6 issue miniseries. Nor can I explain why that miniseries […]

“Star Wars Legacy: Extremes”

By | Aug 6, 2020 | Reviews

Here we are denizens and sentients of the galaxy. At the end of our journey into “Star Wars Legacy…” except not really! We’ll get into it, but the false finale of this series had all the weight of a real one, only we get the real thing right after! I’m riding pretty high on that […]

“Star Wars Legacy: Monster”

By | Jul 30, 2020 | Reviews

One of the strengths of “Star Wars Legacy” is how far reaching the story is. A Star Wars movie never lets you sit in one place too long. You’ll spend a few minutes on an adventure before being whisked away to a bad guys meeting, and then check in with another hero on another planet. […]

You know those wars? The ones in the stars? Well, they are still raging. But while the Fel Empire, the One Sith, the Jedi Remnant, the Galactic Alliance, the Yuzhan Vong, the Crime Syndacites, and a million other factions vie for galactic supremacy, “Star Wars Legacy” decided to focus up and tell the kind of […]

“Star Wars Legacy: The Hidden Temple” & “Vector”

By | Jul 9, 2020 | Reviews

Among the many works that George Lucas took inspiration from are the films of Akira Kurosawa. And Star-Wars-ologists know that Lucas’ favorite Kurosawa flick was The Hidden Fortress, a movie full of shots that Lucas just lifted wholesale. It’s fitting then that ‘The Hidden Temple’ gets real old school, bringing our heroes together just in […]

“Star Wars Legacy: Indomitable” & “Loyalties”

By | Jul 2, 2020 | Reviews

We start with a story that highlights the Galactic Alliance. Some people really don’t care for the politics of Star Wars, but I think that criticism is misguided. While the politics of the prequel movies were simultaneously cartoonish and tedious, they established a lot of helpful context that led to a lot of good stories. […]

“Star Wars Legacy: Claws of the Dragon”

By | Jun 25, 2020 | Reviews

It’s quite simple really. Galactic despot and connoisseur of spikes Darth Krayt, is dying. Scion of legacy and Bush-era edgelord Cade Skywalker has magical healing powers. Can I make it any more obvious? This third arc, ‘Claws of the Dragon’ is where “Star Wars Legacy” gets good. Enticing mysteries are solved, the plot kicks off […]

“Star Wars Legacy: Shards”

By | Jun 18, 2020 | Reviews

You may have noticed that last week, we skipped issue #4 of “Star Wars: Legacy.” This was no accident. There are a lot of characters in this series, so I didn’t want to cover the interlude story, ‘Noob,’ until we had sorted out the basics. This one-shot is part of a proud Star Wars tradition […]

“Star Wars Legacy: Broken”

By | Jun 11, 2020 | Reviews

Before the Force awakened, before there was Rey, before there was Kylo Ren, there was the EU. The Star Wars Expanded Universe (now called Legends) covered eons of story, but only one dared look at the future of the Galaxy Far, Far Away. Welcome to our coverage of “Star Wars Legacy.” Every week we will […]
