Breaking News

Posted By Paul on September 13, 2006

I think this is really a pretty significant day for everyone who's interested in Star Wars: serious afficionados, casual fans, guys in the street.

Issue 3 of the new Star Wars comic-book, Legacy, just hit the stores today. It contains one of the most important developments the galaxy far, far away has seen since the start of the new millennium.

For those who don't want major spoilers, don't scroll any further down the page....

Okay.

Luke Skywalker is dead.

We don't know how it happens yet, or when. Legacy #3 is set more than a hundred years after the movies, and the actual even of his death seems to have occurred at some point before the timeframe of the comic.

But Luke's appearance in full fuzzy blue Ben Kenobi style here marks a major day in Star Wars history - the first time since Chewbacca that an important character from the movies has joined the Force. And, I mean, this is Luke we're talking about.

Farmboy. The Kid. Young Skywalker. The Jedi Master.

Just think about that for a moment, in silence: Luke Skywalker is dead.

Pretty cool, huh?

You can see a preview of issue 3 here at DarkHorse.com, or you can discuss the news in the thread at the TF.N Message Boards.

And of course, Luke's untold adventures over the decades after Return of the Jedi are still being chronicled in the Legacy of the Force novels, the most recent of which, Bloodlines has just been reviewed right here at TF.N.

But for now, I leave you with the cover of Legacy #7, which is due in December. It seems kinda appropriate:
