The Pull List: KINGSWAY WEST #3, WONDER WOMAN #11, and More



  1. ScandalSavage says:

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for at least one of those things (the planet or the new Death Star [which will almost certainly not be called a Death Star, the New Republic HAS to have a better PR department than the Empire])  will turn out to be Centerpoint Station.

  2. Antny1981 says:

    Help me Jessica Chobot your our only hope! … Thanks for the insight :-). 

  3. Alex Aguilera says:

    Sniffing out Jedi? Force sensitives? Yet no Vong invasion? Interesting.

    • Darth Caedus says:

      The rise and fall of Jacen Solo, and Vong invasion could have them making movies for twenty years. Maybe they don’t like money?

  4. Keith E. says:

    Leia’s Death Star will be pink and shoot a rainbow laser beam. Just kidding. Gold with a purple laser. 

  5. Jimmy Williams says:

    There was also the Darksaber, a stripped down version of the Deathstar laser weapon without the bulk of the rest of the space station.  Ironically, it was built by a team of Hutts as I recall.

  6. TypoFirebird says:

    I know the EU is no longer canon, but there was 1 more Death Star prototype that was constructed in the Maw Nebula facility. So they might be picking and choosing from existing ideas to integrate into the new movies.

  7. Antonio says:

    Seems like a very crowded plot, unlike the basic premises of the original trilogy…

  8. Michael Sacal says:

    It is pathetic, very.
