Fate of the Jedi : Backlash by saith100 Fate of the Jedi : Backlash by saith100
This is a fake cover I made for backlash the 4th book in the Fate of the Jedi series starring Jaina Solo. It's been posted on a few websites along with a fake blurb on April 1 as an April Fools joke. And well it worked pretty well : a certain number of people have been fooled.
The Jaina image is part of a bigger piece in the work right now, so you'll have to wait to see her in full color with details (I had to give it that fake-drawning threatement for this cover to fake the style of the previous books' covers).

The april joke has been running on the following websites : (french website who created the fake blurb) - Fan's reaction on the forums here (my website)'s Literature boards (another french website)

Some comments on are really cracking me up like "The X-Wing looks like it's about to fly right into her cleavage for an attack run." or "That cover's gotta be a fake because Jaina's flat-chested, and no SW female is canonically flat-chested."

Hey Saith, LOVE the cover art and have added it to my site [link] along with a piece about Backlash.
Hope you like it, love your site and would very much like to swap links, become affiliates and perhaps interview you for our webmaster interviews section on Lightsabre.
Let me know, be great to sort something out.
