Our favorite Star Wars comic will get a chance to end with a bang after all

Star Wars: Legacy ends this month. We've been dreading a rushed conclusion to our favorite Star Wars comic. But now creators Ostrander and Duursema promise a miniseries that'll end the series in style... and maybe kill off tons of characters.

The miniseries will be called Star Wars: Legacy — War, which is a somewhat clunky title, but so we're delighted that we won't be left hanging that we don't really care. Says writer John Ostrander:

"Legacy-War" stands alone. I'm making no guarantees that anyone will survive the end of it. That's usually hype, but readers should take that very very seriously. Could there be a successor? Depends on sales, response, and Dark Horse's plans. However, Jan and I are taking all the stops out in this story. There are no plans for anything "Legacy" after this. That's how we're creating it.
