Star Wars: Legacy #1
Dark Horse Comics
$2.99 US
**** (out of five)

It’s 130 years after the destruction of the original Death Star and there are still plenty of wars to be fought in the stars.
Dark Horse Comics launches us into the far-flung future of Star Wars with Legacy, the adventures of the next generation of Jedi knights — but as this new series begins, it’s nearly the end of the new Jedi order!
The ghoulish Darth Krayt has led his army of Sith warriors on an all-out assault on the Jedi, with plans to massacre as many as he can’t turn to the dark side. But in this era, as with the Star Wars we’ve all come to know and love, the Skywalker name still carries some weight and young Cade Skywalker rises to defend the last of his kind.
The question is: Is Cade’s rising anger over the Sith’s attack simply setting him up for a fall into the darkness?
The future of Star Wars in comics is still bright and longtime SW creators John Ostrander and Jan Duursema do a fine job of hooking readers in with this debut issue.
Oh, and don’t forget to grab the sweet, little 25-cent #0 of this series for all the background info you’ll need.
