Star Wars: Legacy #24

Star Wars: Legacy #2 (Dark Horse Comics)
John Ostrander, Jan Duursema, Brad Anderson
In part two of “Loyalties,” Cade Skywalker and his crew are taking a wel-earned rest at Rawk’s Nest, but news of the destruction of Mon Calamari by Darth Krayt shakes them from their seclusion. Cade ponders a desperate plan, one that causes great dismay amongst two of his ancestors who just keep popping in to give unwanted advice. One of my favorite things about this title is how we see Luke Skywalker — in ghost-form — taking on the mentor role to the most unwilling would-be Jedi he’s ever encountered. Luke as a teacher is certainly nothing new in the Expanded Universe, but the dynamic he shares with Cade is a unique one. With the destruction of Mon Calamari, Ostrander has drastically raised the stakes in this title as well. Cade has always fought against his family, his history, his… well… his legacy, but it seems clear that he’ll have to choose a path soon. But in a future where the lines aren’t as cut and dried as good or evil, Jedi or Sith, we’re seeing a Star Wars Universe that’s just as intriguing and exciting as the first one we were introduced to in 1977.
