Well Star Wars fans, the end of an era is upon us. One of the most successful Star Wars comic book titles is coming to a bittersweet end. Star Wars: Legacy #50, which goes on sale tomorrow, is the grand finale of a story that brought readers epic battles and amazing characters that we felt for.
The final issue will have one final battle that has Sith vs. Sith, Jedi vs. Sith, Imperials vs. Sith, and Cade Skywalker vs. Sith. The series was one of the best written and best drawn Star Wars titles out there. The characters were not perfect, but they were very lovable and readers could relate to them.
The writer of Legacy, John Ostrander, has been on the book since issue one and has brought readers memorable characters and moments that remind us so much of the Star Wars saga. They even included R2-D2 in a few story arcs.
Artwork in these books by Jan Duursema was very realistic and dark at points, but it did its job. The final issue of Legacy will bring an end to the war between the Galactic Alliance/Galactic Empire and the Sith Empire. The galaxy will be very different at the end of this issue and Cade Skywalker might not make it out of this battle.
While a lot of readers are upset at the cancellation of this series, don’t worry Dark Horse says there will be a follow up mini-series called Star Wars: Legacy: War. It will be six issues and have the same writing and art team. We still do not know what characters from the original title will be in this limited series, but we do know that it will be good and finally wrap up a story that was epic and fun.
