Comic review: James says Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #2 is a must read.
JadeCon prep meant I never did a new release post last week, so naturally there were several last Wednesday.
This Wednesday, however, brings us Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #2.While you’re at the comic ship, you can pick up last week’s books, Star Wars #18 and the third Dawn of the Jedi trade collection, Force War. Last week also saw Star Wars Insider #150 make it out to the newsstands.
Also on the shipping list for this week? Kotobukiya’s Mara Jade Bishoujo statue. The list is for comic shops, but it’s also on Amazon if you’re so inclined. (It doesn’t seem folks were too impressed, but keep in mind this may very well be the last Mara Jade merchandise ever…)
Last episodes of The Clone Wars move beyond Netflix. They’re now available through iTunes, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Sony, Verizon and VUDU – though it’s worth noting most of these are still options for the U.S. and Canada only.
The Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman dropped some info about the show’s unproduced seasons on Twitter. Making Star Wars compiles the tweets.
Wednesday brings the release of Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #1, which wraps up the character’s arc from The Clone Wars. It’s our first fully canon comic, due to being based on scripts and designs originally conceived for the show. Also coming this week is the second trade collection of the Ania Solo Legacy, Outcasts of the Broken Ring.
The Clone Wars has received four daytime Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Achievement in Animation and Outstanding Special Class Animated Program.
Today’s This Is Madness matchups. Captain Rex vs. Arc Trooper Fives and Mother Talzin vs. Pre Vizsla. Talzin, I guess? Mostly it’s a big old shrug for me.
IGN’s Eric Goldman and Dave Filoni go in-depth on The Clone Wars’ final season. Spoilers! They also address some Rebels fan speculation.
Now that the episodes are out in the wild, Dan Brooks at StarWars.com has posted his discussion with Dave Filoni on the official blog. The best parts are all fairly spoilery, so head on over to read it.
