STAR WARS: LEGACY to end with issue #50

Kinda knew the end was near:

The final issue! Sith versus Sith! Jedi versus Sith! Imperials versus Sith! Cade Skywalker versus Sith! It’s all-out war!

The final issue of Star Wars: Legacy!
Ends in July.

Legacy may be coming to an end, but I sorta doubt this is the end of this era...

Aw, that stinks. I hope they do more with that era, I've come to really enjoy it.

Hopefully they'll do an Empire/Rebellion or Republic/Dark Times kind of thing with it.

How did you know? Even one of the creators is expressing surprise about this on Facebook.

EDIT: I've looked more closely, and it seems like it may indeed just be a rebranding of sorts. I'm thinking a new title, with perhaps a time jump and refocusing away from Cade.

No matter what, this whole thing is being very poorly handled and is just causing bad feelings toward Dark Horse and Lucasfilm.

Very few Dark Horse titles last more than 50 issues--especially if it isn't a manga. It was just a question of was it going to end at 50, 60, or 75...I was leaning more towards 50 after they recently concluded Knights of the Old Republic at that point. I just didn't see Legacy lasting much longer than that.

I'm thinking more like "Star Wars: Legacy of the Sith" myself. I think we may see a different Cade this time out, maybe even one that has finally exorcised his demons and decided to return to the Jedi Order (presuming he survives issue #50).
No matter what, this whole thing is being very poorly handled and is just causing bad feelings toward Dark Horse and Lucasfilm.

There's been no real announcement, like there was for the end of KotOR. Just this monthly solicitation for the comic stores. And what's been the response from DH and LFL? Nothing. Not a single word. Writer Jon Ostrander has said only one thing, and it's vague but maybe potentially reassuring, while artist Jan Duursema's two comments have seemingly confirmed our worst fears. And the fact that there has been nothing from DH or LFL leads me to believe that, a)the series was cancelled at the eleventh hour, and thus we won't see the proper closure the series deserves, or b)they just utterly failed to get an announcement together, which smacks of incompetence.

Check out the DH Board and Jedi Council Forum. People are upset, and no one will tell them anything.

I know I'm pissed. Legacy was the last good thing going on in the EU (well, the upcoming comic Knight Errant looks promising too, but that's not out yet).

I think they want fanboys/fangirls to get upset and raise a big stink. The bigger, the better. Create more publicity, probably. The best way to do that is to drop a bombshell and say nothing, I guess.

I really don't think this is the end of the Legacy era, but just this opening chapter. The vibe I get is that Dark Horse was eventually going to rebrand/retitle the series after it reached a certain point anyway, and they simply decided to do it now (today is when they had to release the solicitations for their July releases). They may have done it full well knowing the furor it would cause.

Someone at Dark Horse may be laughing at us right now...

Re: STAR WARS: LEGACY to end with issue #50

The stupid thing is that Legacy is Dark Horse's second best selling series. I think they're rebranding to get people who would be more likely to jump on at issue 1 rather than 51.

Re: STAR WARS: LEGACY to end with issue #50

I had a bad feeling that Legacy was going to end with #50. Thing have been building up to a head for some time now, especially after the developments with Cade in the most recent issue. I really hope the they continue on with this era with a new #1.

Re: STAR WARS: LEGACY to end with issue #50

I'm a huge Star Wars fan but I've never gotten into the comics. Knowing this is a 50 issue story and not a forever ongoing encourages me to someday get it all in trades.

You really should get into the comics. That's where all the good stuff happens.

Re: STAR WARS: LEGACY to end with issue #50

It's a shame that Legacy is ending so soon, it seems like there is so much left to explore. I think the creative team did a bang up job creating Legacy, but to be honest, I wondered how long they could keep up that level of quality. Not to mention how long would Cade's story be. I actually wanted to see other aspects of the universe they had created.

I don't know if there are enough issues left-what is it five?-to wrap up all the story lines and give them proper justice.

Re: STAR WARS: LEGACY to end with issue #50

I've only been following this series through the trade paperbacks, and agree, it's been good, but I'm curious, are the trades a complete chronological reprinting of the series? I've read four volumes so far and every once in a while it seems like I'm missing something.

I've only read the first two trades of Legacy, but based on them and the stuff I've read on wookiepedia they jump around in the numbering. I believe they're doing that in order to keep the arcs together, and help the story flow better in bigger chunks.

Yes they do switch a few things around, but nothing that should affect your enjoyment of the series.

The only issues that are not included in the Legacy tpbs are #28-31, which are instead included in the second Vector tpb along with the two Vector issues of Rebellion.
