Star Wars: Legacy #7 takes place 138 years after the events in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and features a descendant of Han Solo – Ania Solo – and a jedi named Jao on their quest to save the galaxy. Yup, the main characters of this expanded universe Star Wars series are a black man and a female Han Solo. Everything I ever wanted in a comic.

The plot is fast-paced and interesting, with plenty of mysteries, but never so many as to leave the reader frustrated. Ania is a straight-talking, “shoot first” kind of girl with plenty of room for her character to grow.

I also love the art and all the fantastic creatures in the series. The colors and design is dark and lovely, and really fits the Star Wars universe.

I can’t wait to read the next issue! Damn cliffhangers…

Check out our other Star Wars: Legacy reviews!

Plot

After a terrible vision of Empress Fel being struck down by a Sith, Ania Solo and Imperial Knight Jao ignore direct orders and set out in search of the murdering Sith. It’s the right thing to do…but it’s also scratching their itch for adventure!

Mass Effect: Foundation #3 is supposed to be the story of a great assassin working for Cerberus, but we’re treated along the way to a few old friends, like Wrex, and in this issue, Ashley Williams.

I love the classic BioWare storytelling, the strong female characters, and the bloody fight scenes. The art is still meh, but the story is so good that I don’t really care.

I don’t want this series to end.

Check out my review of ME: Foundation issues 1 and 2!

Plot

The loss of the human colony Eden Prime was the first in a series of catastrophes to mark the return of the Reapers—a race of sentient AI that would threaten all life in the galaxy. Now, in her own words, Gunnery Chief Ashley Williams reveals what she saw.

If you’ve been following along, we’re now on issue #4 of Amala’s Blade, a delightful comic about a master assassin with a load of baggage – oh, and she just happens to be female. No biggie.

This finale is all a lover of swashbuckling could ever want. Multiple betrayals, brutal deaths, and a shocking end. I loved it! I also quite enjoyed watching Amala duel her mother. We see plenty of guys having to fight their evil fathers, but we rarely see biological mother and daughter physically fighting it out.

I have a love/hate relationship with the art style of Amala’s Blade. I love the character designs, faces, and the grittiness of the style, but I also think a lot of things are ugly and angular, and sometimes the sketchy style just looks like someone doodled instead of drawing, if you know what I mean.

But overall, my only wish is that this miniseries was longer. It wrapped up too quickly for my taste! I’d love to see more from Amala and her friends.
