Star Wars: Legacy #25
Star Wars: Legacy #25 (Dark Horse Comics)
By John Ostrander, Jan Duursema & Sean Cooke
In “The Hidden Temple,” Cade Skywalker and his merry band of rogues are pulled out of a well-earned vacation to respond to the atrocities commited against the Mon Calimari. Cade’s mission has become to destroy the Sith, but the Jedi he encounters this issue, surprisingly, may not agree with his methods. By the time of Legacy, the force-users have been split into three factions: the Jedi, the Sith, and the Imperial Knights. While the Jedi and the Imperials are ostensibly allies in the battle against the Sith, Cade’s rage against the Sith doesn’t seem to give him a place in any camp. The idea of the Imperial Knights is intriguing to me, and they haven’t really been explored very much in this series thus far, so it’s nice to see them getting a little more face time. Equally nice is seeing more of Cade’s rejected Jedi past — obviously an integral facet for the character, but one that still holds many secrets. Jan Duursema‘s artwork is as awesome as ever. Ostrander and Duursema have both been involved in some of the all-time best Star Wars comics, and having them together makes this the best being published currently.
