    Hmm, i see. I was kinda wondering what was the deal with Jude Watson and Dave Wolverton cause on the site i looked on for some informations about the books Watson is noted as writer of the rising force. But on the amazon site (was looking for the book price) it indicates that it's Wolverton.

    Mystery solved.

    I wonder if Marvel/Disney will stick with Dark Horse's continuity-or do it's own thing like the new movies will.

    I hope it isn't like Marvel handed Star Trek, where once they got the license back(Although they had done a brief TMP inspired series in the early 80s which was pretty bad), they sort of made the series more like a typical comic book actioner than DC's Trek series. Although there were some moments of brilliance in the Early Voyages series that dealt with the adventures of Captain Pike. I think they only had the license for a few years.


    Marvel's 80s Star Wars was OK though, they even used one of the villains in the novels.

    That's what indicates that the force is hereditary, I was replying to some one claiming midichlorians somehow explained that.

    I did like that they had several different titles (EV, Unlimited, DS9, Voy. and Starfleet Academy). I liked IDW Trek for the same reason (TOS, TNG, DS9, New Frontier, McCoy series between ToS and TMP, Gary 7, Klingon/Romulan/No. 1 from Pikes crew books, alternate timeline books, new movie timeline books...). Trek's a huge universe with 5 live action shows, 1 cartoon, 11 (soon to be 12) movies, tonnes of characters, planets, races, history...why not have more than 1 or 2 books?

    So yeah, i wouldn't mind to try a new one, especially one written by Hickman.
    I have nothing against Star Wars at all, im sure some of the comics have been good actually, but since i have only a passing interest, putting a guy i like writing it would be the selling point for me.
    Though i suppose they only thing they need is Star Wars in the name.

    Yeah, this again, has there been any confiramtion that Disney will simply restart the Post ROTJ Continuity? Because this thread is the only place I've seen this idea being discussed.
    ...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

    Well, as apparently the new movie will be all original material we can guess that they don't want to bother themselves with already existing stuff.

    That's entertaining alright.

    The whole jedi apprentice stuff is. It's kinda like watching a season of some pleasant tv show you know. Can't say much about the other SW books but those ones are worth the read.

    I would think if the marvel published star wars comics sold at the level of the dark horse comics, they would be deemed a failure and be canceled, wouldn't they?
    So they can do whatever disney wants them too.

    My message was poorly worded. I didn't mean that no Star Wars comics in the last 20 years were good, just that i didn't read any of them who diverse reasons, the main being simply a lack of interest.

    But i wouldn't mind to try some new titles. So yeah Disney, give us some goodies you crazy mouse.

    Disney needs to flex their mighty mouse muscles to give us top quality comics on their new property.
    And a Star Wars pc game that involves me flying a spaceship and wasn't made before the year 2000.

    Weird how this kind of game has fallen from grace during the last decade. That was great fun.

    I still have X-Wing Alliance on my computer. (with some mods for better graphics and other things)

    I have zero confidence that Marvel will be able to produce Star Wars comics remotely as good as the Drak Horse ones have been.

    I do know that the cover price is about to go up by 33% though, and the page count is about to drop to 20.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    That's a given. Going to cost more for less pages, no question here.

    But concerning the quality in writing, well, it's a bit unfair to say that soon that the comic books to come have no chance to be as good.

    Not sure the whole deal on that, but that was Wolverton's last contribution to the franchise. Anyway, the first two books give a complete story while leaving the door for more. Seeing the different writing styles can give you an idea of what to expect and you can go from there.

    It depends on what LucasBooks and Disney choose to do, if they bring it back to Marvel, since Marvel continuity became part of the overall continuity. Not just that, but if the new films will leave very little room for all post ROTJ material or not.

    As Lucas stated, the more Midichlorians a person has, the stronger their connection to the Force is. Han Solo did not have the sufficient count necessary to become a Force user. Anakin had the strongest connection ever which carried down to Luke and Leia and in the EU, all of their offspring.

    I could see Marvel doing their own thing and maybe cherry picking stuff from the Dark Horse line that seems attractive to them

    Yes, but the midichlorians are just indicators, they do nothing to explain said heredity as the poster I was responding to had claimed.
