Not so long from now in a galaxy very much our own, Star Wars is mounting a resurgence. The second issue in Brian Wood’s back-to-basics ongoing streaks through the horizon tomorrow, and of course there’s all that movie news. But perhaps the easiest project to get behind with zero trepidation is Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman’s Star Wars Legacy relaunch, Prisoner of the Floating World.
While the original Star Wars Legacy books focused on a brash descendant of Luke Skywalker, Bechko and Hardman’s new ongoing is a Solo series devoted to Ania, great-great granddaughter of Han and Leia. Several generations removed from the original trilogy or other entries in the expanded universe, the galaxy has undergone a fair bit of change. Of course, if this is anything like their Planet of the Apes work, it promises to be stronger and more compelling than a considerable percentage of the stories under the brand. And I don’t just mean the prequels.

Yep. We have a very good feeling about this.
