Star Wars Legacy #3 Review

As a huge Star Wars fan I try to keep up with everything, but with limited time this is unfortunately impossible for me to do, so I pick and choose whatever catches my eye from the Star Wars universe. I mainly follow The Old Republic storylines because I am intrigued by the ancient government and reign of the Sith Lords. That being said I try to keep an open mind about Star Wars in general, but for some reason have not been able to get into the Legacy novels. I decided to take on this review of Star Wars Legacy #3  from Dark Horse comics just to get a taste of this timeline and it’s characters.

For those of you unfamiliar with Legacy, it begins with Luke Skywalker recreating the Jedi Council and continues on from that point. Many novels have been written about this era. I believe this storyline takes place around 138 years after Skywalker reformed the council. The government in place composed of the Jedi Council, Imperial Court, and what remains of the Galactic Alliance. Ok, this alone has already alienated me from the story. I grew up with the Jedi battling the Empire, so now they are joined within the same governing body. I try to keep an open mind as I stated earlier, but even I have my limits.

 

Nothing against the writers as it is well written for what it is and the art isn’t bad but the first time someone mentioned an Imperial Knight I cringed, the concept alone is unnatural. Without giving too much away because I’m sure some fans out there will no doubt enjoy the story and I respect that. Just because I didn’t necessarily enjoy something doesn’t mean it’s bad. It just means it’s not for me. The basic story is as follows, an Imperial Knight (sigh) is kidnapped by the Sith and is replaced by an imposter who is attempting to manipulate the governor of an isolated system known as Carreras. The Knights apprentice is looking for him which leads him to a planet where Ania Solo, descendant of you know who, is trying to find answers of her own after being attacked by the imposter. Ania is accompanied by a Mon Calamari and an assassin droid, interesting group to say the least. It all leads to a small showdown with Solo and her companions and the apprentice in search of his master.

That really is gonna conclude this review of Star Wars Legacy #3 because I don’t want to give too much away for those of you who do have an interest in the story and without getting outright cruel I should just leave this one behind and go to lightspeed. Just for the record, one of my favorite characters comes out of the Legacy era and that would be Darth Talon because well…. she just rocks.
