Star Wars Legends – The Legacy volume 1 (Legends Universe)

More than a hundred years after the end of the Return of the Jedi and the fall of Emperor Palpatine, a new evil threatens the galaxy and the new emerging empire. Sith Lord Darth Krayt has no choice but to call on the last heir to the Skywalker line, Cade, but Cade has become a bounty hunter. Trapped in the midst of an intergalactic conflict, will Cade finally accept his legacy?

Contains Inheritance # 1-19.

NB: Available with two covers: soft (above left) and hardback (right).
And if you’re wondering “Why Obi-Wan on the cover of a comic book set 134 years after episode IV?”, The answer is simple: It’s just a (very) bad promo from Dark Horse at the time that had been decided to put it on the cover because it appears in … 3 pages under a flashback 🙂

Storm champion (sound-drama) (canon universe)

Storm Nihil raged across the galaxy, creating chaos and doom in its wake. Few of its raiders are as vicious as Storm Master Lourna Dee. She is always one step ahead of the Jedi Order and commands a ship named after one of the most deadly monsters in the galaxy: Lourna Dee. But no one can escape the defenders of the High Republic forever.

After the defeat of her crew, Lourna falls into the hands of the Jedi, but not before she hides her identity, and simply becomes an indefinable Nihil prisoner. His guards do not understand what animal they have put in a corner. Like all the fools she has ever buried, their first mistake was to leave her alive.

Lourna is determined to underestimate her for their final mistake.

Imprisoned aboard a Republic correction ship, she is dragged into the galaxy to undo the damage she and her other Storm Masters have inflicted. But as Lourna plans her glorious escape, she enters into alliances that come dangerously close to friendship. Away from Nihil, separated from his infamous ship, his scary arsenal and his dreaded name, Lourna must go her own way. But will it lead to redemption? Or will it appear as an even more deadly threat than before?
