[This review represents the entire 50-issue Legacy series and the follow-up mini-series, Legacy: War]

Jumping a hundred years after the Galactic Civil War, Legacy starts with a clean slate. The Old Republic era material has already proven the value that has for creating original material that stays true to the spirit of Star Wars story-telling, and Legacy continues that tradition. Cade Skywalker is one of the most idiosyncratic SW characters I can remember, with a gigantic chip-on-shoulder justified quite deftly by the murder of his father and many other Jedi by the Sith and by the weight of his family heritage (a set of background traits that could easily have been handled quite clumsily). Legacy is really Cade's story, and his halting, angsty steps toward accepting his destiny are meaningful and unique. Well done, with all the great artwork and aliens and new material that seems to mark comics as a great medium for Star Wars.
