The heroes have saved the day in Legacy #5. Only problem is that a Sith Lord is still out there, and he is wreaking his own brand of havoc on the galaxy. Meanwhile, Ania and the unlikely heroes are now set to get the royal treatment from the highest levels of the Galactic Triumvirate including the Empress herself.
Even while we see our heroes getting pampered there is a underlying feeling that this is a false world, that something is working behind the scenes against them, waiting for them to get comfortable, lazy, complacent. There isn’t a lot of action in this issue, at least not compared to the huge chases and battles we have before, but this issue has tension bubbling under it the whole time.
This issue gave me a Wizard of Oz feeling, when Dorothy and co. are first brought into Oz. They are pampered before their meeting with the Wizard. Bad things are in store for our motley collection of heroes. But who is the one behind it all, is it the Sith?
Our newest Sith Lord, Darth Wredd has his own plans for the Sith. It’s not clear if his brazen attitude is part of his plan or his own arrogance mixed with incompetence. He lacks the ninja like subtlety and precision of the Sith Lords who came before him.
Issue #6 brings a new artist, Brian Albert Thies, replacing Hardman who was doing double duty on writing and art. But, it’s not a drastic style change, Rachelle Rosenberg is still on colors. Her colors really help to define the look. I’m glad they didn’t change the style up too much, I have a hard time imagining the world of Ania Solo any differently. The style of this book has always helped to set it apart from all the other Star Wars books on the shelf.
