First look at Golden’s Ascension cover has the cover for the eighth Fate of the Jedi book, Christie Golden’s Ascension. One question, though: What is Neville Longbottom doing there?

  1. “What is Neville Longbottom doing there?”

    :spittake: An interesting artistic interpretation of the Sword of Gryffindor.

  2. Maybe it’s just me, but I still really like these covers. They’re solid looking and well designed without feeling over-designed.

    I’m also glad to see that Ben still has Luke’s old ’70s hair thing going on.

  3. @Nathan: I think the tats were supposed to be henna type things that she wore fore some formal rites. Permanent tattoos don’t seem to mesh with the Lost Tribe’s “physical beauty above all” philosophy.

  4. Looks like Shia Labeouf and Christina Applegate to me. Is that a shadow, or does Ben have facial hair?

  5. You know, that strange and unpleasant feeling I’ve been getting about the whole Ben & Vestara thing being something akin to a “copy” of Luke and Mara has now been reinforced in visual form. :/

  6. I was thinking the same thing, Michelle. Definitely a nod to Luke and Mara.

    And I was actually thinking Ben looked a lot like Justin Bieber.

    This is a Star Wars Rorschach test!
