I actually really like the designs of both the ships and the characters. I haven't picked the book up yet but it's on my to do list.

I think the ships look plenty Star Wars. I like 'em.
Those ships don't look so Star Wars 'ish to me and those nihil guys look more like taken from some Steampunk or Post apocalyptic fan art, but I certainly find it an interesting project even though I never noticed any event prior to Episode I in the previous canon and at the moment other projects place the action more in the imperial or post-imperial period.
StarWarscom has given a look at the heroes and villains for this event, and here is a look at some of the ship and vehicle designs.Jedi Vector

Interesting that they went with IDW and not Marvel. I have been interested in this project since they first announced it. I have always liked the pre movies time period because of the freedom it offers the writers to come up with ideas.
Hmm, I thought it was marvel that published every star wars-related comic book now. To be honest I haven't been interested in any of the comic book series from this new Expanded Universe, this one sounds interesting although I was never very interested in the period of time before the Clone Wars.
