For almost 21 years, Mara Jade has been entertaining Star Wars fans of the expanded universe. However, it wasn’t until The Last Command that fans actually got their first look at her. Since then, Mara Jade has appeared on many covers, both books, comics, and sourcebooks (plus inside a few magazines). In order to honor her memory, we’ve collected all the Mara Jade cover images (and a few extras) for Mara Jade: Cover to Cover. Enjoy!

Out of all the Star Wars comics that have been done, Union stands out amongst the crowd. On one hand, it was written by Michael A. Stackpole and covers something we don’t see too much of in Star Wars: weddings. On the other hand, it also featured an all star cast. Mara, Luke, Wedge, Corran…no, not those stars. We’re talking about the real life celebrities who show up as Star Wars characters.

Luke: “I know you find [Kyp] annoying…”

Corran: “Annoying? Either I’m covering my feelings, or you’re being kind. If I had any talent for telekinesis at all, I’d have strangled him with his own cloak.”

Mara: “Corran!”

Corran: “Sorry, I suppose that would have been out of character for me-”

Mara: “Out of character to be so obvious. You need to be more subtle. Locate a partially blocked artery in his brain, then just pinch it off. Bang, he’s down and it’s over.”

“I’m a fighter. I’ve always been a fighter. The few times I’ve been at leisure, I’ve been miserable. I want challenges, I crave them.”…This Mara, strong of limb and sharp of eye, wore armor, sported blasters, and looked like someone who could take a Death Star apart from the inside out…”As long as I’m fighting, I’m not dying.”

Where’s the Happy Ending?

One of the most important parts of any story is the ending. Will it be a happy ending? A sad ending? Will the director/author/creator pull off a good one or bad one? It’s the last moment the fans get to experience and it can potentially ruin the entire work. A lot rides on the ending. Continue Reading Where’s the Happy Ending?…

I’m a fan of the Adult Swim show Squidbillies. If you’ve watched the show, you know Early Cuyler has a hat for everything. Now that includes Mara Jade.

Mara Month continues, so be on the look out for more Mara all month long.

May is for Mara

It’s hard to believe, but May 29th is the 5th anniversary of the day the SWEU lost Mara Jade Skywalker.  In the intervening years, no one has managed to fill Mara’s boots and really, in some ways, that’s how it should be.  Mara was a fantastic, unforgettable character.  Five years later, her presence is still missed and her absence mourned.  She was an integral part of the SWEU, a perfect foil for Luke Skywalker, and a strong, vital woman and Jedi master in her own right.

Mara was arguably the most popular SWEU original character, and Roqoo Depot is celebrating her life.  For the entire month of May we will be posting special articles, art highlights, and memorable quotes for the most famous redhead in Star Wars, Mara Jade Skywalker.  And we’ll be asking you to join us in remembering an unforgettable female hero.
