death yet the force by ex-m death yet the force by ex-m just announced a hardcover re-release of Heir to the Empire to celebrate its 20th anniversary - with annotations and a new short story about Thrawn by Zahn. Day one for sure. :P


So here's something pieced together from some doodles in celebration of the announcement...

I've always liked the idea that Luke went off to train by himself once the New Republic established itself before trying to take on any students, let alone found an entire academy. O.x Maybe he went back to Dagobah, with its mysterious technology-scrambling so he could really drop off the radar (plus grow crazy hair like any good dude lost in the wild) and chat up Yoda and Obi-Wan's force ghosts, who could confer upon him the title of Master ('cause Luke really only qualified as a Knight by the time of RotJ).

The text is from the original Jedi Code, not the one as modified by Odan-Urr (which was introduced in KotOR) - less wordy and sounds more balanced.

I am such a nerd.

You're not a nerd, you're a geek
Also, Odan-Urr is awesome

I actually thought Luke was combining both the Jedi and Sith, like he's realized that both sides have good attributes and tries to find balance between both sides, which I thought was really cool. I prefer this Jedi Code; it sounds much healthier and more balanced than the current one. I probably wouldn't mind following a code like this.

Having seen this I thought wow and because I can only draw from looking at pictures or scenery, I thought i'd have a go at drawing this :P SO far it's turning out alright, using a fountain pen with a mix of Black and blue ink lol, I'd love to see more of these :D

I'm beginning to wonder if Anakin is superficial. :XD:

When I read what Anakin said I practically died laughing. It's serious in the beginning then at the bottom it's just hilarious! I love it!!!!

Maybe Luke can have a Qui-Gon phase and keep it sometime... :P

You style is amazing!
Maybe you will make a Anakin ultimate light side version? (like old bearded jedi master ;))

I've become much more of an Anakin fan thanks to the Clone Wars, I think it'd be cool to draw an older version of him channeling Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan... so yeah, probably over winter break I'll whip something up. =]

Nice, he looks hot with a beard and pony tail. lol

LOL, Anakin's last line is great. This is really well-drawn! I love the visions of Luke training, and the pacing of the panels.

I haven't read New Republic stuff in a while--is it canon that Luke got all bearded? :P

Anyway, awesome comic. Luke makes a cool Jedi Master.

Thank you! Anakin's been growing on me because of the Clone Wars animated series, so I felt like sticking him in with a snarky comment.

Going by EU artwork on a whole, Bearded!Luke is decidedly non-canon. It's just a personal preference I have when drawing him older.
Nemonus Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2010
You're welcome!

Well, it works. :)

I never liked the idea of Luke with a beard until I saw this, and I'm smitten. xD

Haha, glad I managed to sell you on the idea of facial hair on Luke. :P
