Marvel Unlimited Spotlight

Star Wars: Legacy

Ever since Disney and Marvel aquired the Star Wars licence, there have been some classic comics missing from the library. Before Marvel had the license, Dark Horse Comics produced the modern Star Wars Expanded Universe comics. They put out quite a bit of content, but my favorite was always Star Wars:Legacy.

SW:Legacy followed the adventures of Cade Skywalker, a descendant of Luke Skywalker. Cade was initially being trained at a Jedi temple when it was attacked and he saw his father and everyone else killed. His father managed to get him off the planet in an escape pod where drifted until he was picked up by some mercenaries.

Throughout the series he struggles against embracing his dark side tendencies and his light side training. He makes uses of his force abilities as a bounty hunter and travels with his ally Jariah Syn and lover Delilah Blue. He eventually comes to the attention of the current emperor and Sith Lord, Darth Krayt.

The writing by Ostrander and art by Dursema, crafted an epic story that any fan of Star Wars should read at least once. I’m really glad Marvel got Dark Horse’s catalog of Star Wars comics. It’s a real treat for fans to have it all in one app.
