Why I'm looking forward to Brian Wood's Star Wars comic

Do you see Leia looking completely badass in the flight suit on this cover?
Yeah, that reason above all else is why I can't wait to read Brian Wood's upcoming Star Wars series.
Star Wars #2 Cover by Alex Ross
If you haven't heard about the series, it's coming out in January and it's simply known as Star Wars. The basic premise of the story is to continue events from A New Hope assuming none of the other movies were ever made. It leaves a whole lot of fresh canvas; you can read more details here.

As I highlighted above, one of the awesome things we know about the series is that Leia is an X-wing pilot. In the handful of Expanded Universe stories I've read around the original trilogy timeline, Leia is mostly a diplomat. She's fantastic at playing that role - just like her mother - but it does make you miss her take charge, take blaster attitude from A New Hope. It looks like we'll see that side in the Star Wars comics. Woods tweeted a bit of the script recently that made me smile:

Hell. yes.

And I know the future of Star Wars comics is up in the air after the news last week, but Wood tweeted on Sunday that as far as he knows nothing has changed. Thankfully. I want to read this story, and I'd be willing to kick a mouse if it got in the way.


  1. Great write-up :)

    "The basic premise of the story is to continue events from A New Hope assuming none of the other movies were ever made."

    Is this right? This is what Randey Stradley had to say at Celebration VI...

    “Just for the record, it’s not a reboot. We are not ignoring continuity. We’re not trampling continuity. There’s room for new stuff.”

    Just wondering if new info had come out that I did not know about.

    1. I got that info from Brian Wood's announcement about the project:

      "As announced earlier today, I’m writing an ongoing Star Wars book for Dark Horse. Not just any Star Wars book, this will be called “Star Wars”, and will be set in the original trilogy, using the classic characters, and will pretend like its 1977 and no other films were every made or books ever written aside from “A New Hope”.

    2. Star wars is really a legendry movie that cant be replace with any other sci-fi films it has its class when i use to work in construction companies in karachi i watched it in that time and now i feel it very nostalgic to see this.

  2. As I understand, it just means it's based on what's in ANH, rather than spending the whole time referencing the prequels or foreshadowing ESB/ROTJ or anything like that. Not that its going to rewrite the storyline going forward.

    1. IEEE Project Domain management in software engineering is distinct from traditional project deveopment in that software projects have a unique lifecycle process that requires multiple rounds of testing, updating, and faculty feedback. A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in Chennai For CSE provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.

      This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
