I'd love to see a comic of Starfighters of Adumar. Lots and lots of images of my favourite pilots, plus the Fab Four in drag. And Janson duelling with a blastsword. And Wedge gambling his future on a kiss...

Yeah, I'd like to see SoA as a comic.

I want to read another X-wing comic too. According to Wookieepedia, the last X-wing comic was published in 2005 excluding omnibuses. There's a huge gap between Solo Command and Mercy Kill that could be filled with Wraith adventures!

Yeah, new X-wing comics would be good. Perhaps even a Next Generation comic, featuring Syal and/or Myri.

So I was on Twitter yesterday and started following Jennifer Heddle, the lead editor at Del Rey.

This was the tweet I saw:

"@Paulskemp Hondo makes me laugh a lot."

I see two possible interpretations:

1- The Untitled Paul S. Kemp duology is set during the Clone Wars, or in the early days of the Empire, and includes everyone's favourite pirate, Hondo Ohnaka.

2- The Untitled Paul S. Kemp duology is set later in the Legacy era, and includes everyone's favourite Legacy-era Mandalorian, Hondo Karr, thus possibly tying up loose ends with the Mandalorians in the Legacy comics

IR2, I'll bet you'd love it if it were the second one, eh?

I to would love it if it was about Hondo Karr, but a Mandalorian on a vengeance quest usualy doesn't make people "laugh a lot." Smile

I'm guessing neither actually.


Every time that that duology is mentioned, its built up as something that's a truely massive undertaking with major implications.

Neither of those come close to describing that. Though I'm sure both would be well recieved, I doubt that that's what they've been keeping under wraps so long.

While I would be ok seeing books on either, I doubt hondo is going to get his own novel any time soon, and though finding an author to cover the mando's and tie up lose ends that were left when Traviss departed, both for FOTJ and IC, is a high priority, I would be very surprised if that warented a hardcover duology that has been kept under high secrecy for the better part of a year.

My personal suspicion for a long time was that it might follow the implications of the Jaden Korr duology with the One Sith slowly becoming more active behind the scenes. Their slow reveal would be enough to warrent a hardcover duology, but even that I wonder if they'd keep under wraps for this long.

So, I begin to suspect that this duology, whatever it may be, is set in a completely new timeline period that we haven't seen before. Their Clone Wars novels are complete, the bane-era novels are done, the TOR novels seem to be wrapping up at 4, so far there doesn't seem to be any future Knight Errant novale planned (and jjm would be the one to do those I suspect),. While its possible that it may be set during/shortly after the clone wars, I suspect Del Rey will hold off on anything further with that until the TCW show is done so that nothing else gets messed up. Similarly I doubt that its shortly post-FOTJ since they've already announced four other books that are going there.

That leaves it fitting in about 5 possible places:

1) a new point in the timeline before the movies (we've been expanding a lot of those eras lately so it fits in what seems to be the current direction). Given the "ambitious" description of the duology I would postulate: something detailing the birth of the republic itself, or from one of the early Schisms of the Jedi Order. (Perhaps the 100 year darkness? Especially since some of this was described in the Book of Sith?)

2) Inserted somewhere into the Bantum Era (like Scourge) - Possible, but I can't see that fittin the "ambitous" title very well. Though I would love to see a Kyle Katarn Duology eventually.

3) filling in the massive gaps post NJO (6 years from the NJO to DN, 4 years from DN to LOTF, 2 years between LOTF and FOTJ) - likely candidates include finally detailing Jacen's journey, describing the battles with the last vong holdouts, rebuilding of the jedi order (similar to JAT) - While this is possible, I again guess unlikely at this time, since it doesn't appear to be a priority for the editoral staff right now.

4) someting several years post FOTJ/pre-Legacy - no guesses on what you'd throw in here, but something I would perfer not to see so as to not tie down continity any further at ths point.

5) something during or post-Legacy.- If they insist on keeping this canon (and I'm still hoping that this turns out to be the vision of the future that Jacen was trying to prevent), then they may as well start fleshing this out. Though how "ambitious" this project would be is questionable.


To me, only option number 1 or 4 fits under the "ambitious" label that his planned duology keeps getting. So...

Paul also has three kids and they watch The Clone Wars, so I'm betting his tweet didn't have anything to do with his duology.

That said, Paul has been calling this thing "ambitious" and I don't think he's embellishing. Whatever it is that he's working on, I think it will live up to that whole "ambitious" tagline.

Ah. Didn't know that part.

Mayhap it would've been a good idea to look at Kemp's tweets too, to see if he posted something about the show, eh? Razz

I was wondering if Paul's duology could be tied into the Republic Commando teasing, but then there's been rumors that could be Stover.

The only person who can match Karen Traviss' intensity is Matthew Stover. His novels are very existential, so I'm worried he'd turn being a clone into a religious experience.

Oh that's interesting. And would make a lot of sense.

While I'd be happy to see that, it doesn't fit the "ambitious" description to me.

You mean Traviss didn't already do that?

Depends on your definition of religious experience.

That was my guess too - that they were watching the new episode of TCW. (Haven't seen it, personally, so I don't know if Hondo said anything funny.)

On the RD forum, there was speculation that Kemp was setting his duology at the beginning of the New Sith Wars. I'm backing this idea.
