On Tatooine, Cade Skywalker has promised to think about what he's becoming, and the choices he's made -- but he didn't say when. And before he'll have time to think, Cade has to get himself and his crew out of reach of the Empire and Black Sun!

It's not true that you can't go home. You can, but getting away again is the hard part!

    You can always count on Star Wars Legacy for an enjoyable story, but its not very often that it rises above simply "good" status into something great, but with this issue it finally begins to live up to its potential. The impressive character work and the great chemistry between the writing and the art helped make this issue incredibly compelling, while the amazing amount of story crammed into the issue gives it the best value of any story this week. I just hope that Ostrander and Duursema can use the success of this issue to keep the momentum going for this series. Read Full Review

    Legacy takes a break from the Jedi next issue as it revisits the war, but this issue is definitely a high note in the series. While not every question gets answered, many do and the story is beginning to head in a direction where the family ties will begin to drive the story. It's an excellent comic that relies on the characters to tell a compelling story. I definitely recommend this comic book. Read Full Review

    Legacy has plenty of untapped potential waiting to be exploited. The problem is that the same thing could have ben said four months ago. This arc failed to accomplish much in its four issues. Hopefully the next will begin to capitalize on the boiling tensions and dark conspiracies that make the Legacy era of Star Wars such an interesting time. Read Full Review
