SDCC: The Bounty Hunter Code and more from Becker & Mayer

Becker & Mayer, the producers of the deluxe versions of The Jedi Path and Book of Sith, brought their newest books to Comic-Con. Watch the video to learn more about The Bounty Hunter Code (similar to the two previous in-universe type books), the more affordable version of Star Wars: The Blueprints, and the Barnes&Noble special book: Star Wars: Build R2-D2 Papercraft. Big thanks to Stephanie and Katie from becker&mayer for filling us in on these cool books!

Out this week: Dark Times’ Fire Carrier continues

Dark Times: Fire Carrier #3Need a read? Head to your local comic shop today to pick up Dark Times: Fire Carrier #3, our lone release this week.

If you don’t mind dropping a bit more than $2.99, the non-limited edition reasonably priced version of Star Wars: The Blue Prints came out yesterday.

There will be many comics between now and then, but if it’s novels you want, you’ll have to wait until May 7 for Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void. In the meantime, here’s a look at the finished jacket.

EUbits: Essential Guide to Warfare moves back, win breakfast with Zahn at DragonCon

Street date shuffle. The release of Jason Fry’s Essential Guide to Warfare has been moved to May 22 next year, Erich Schoeneweiss announced on Facebook. On the plus side, it’s only two months, and he did include a nice Hoth sketch from Tommy Lee Edwards.

Contest. Suvudu is planning another meal for three fans with Timothy Zahn. This time it’s breakfast at Dragon*Con with Tim, Shelly Shapiro and Betsy Mitchell.

Fate of the Jedi. Suvudu also has five Ascension tidbits with Christie Golden, while the Star Wars Books Facebook will have a live chat with her tomorrow.

Video. The Blueprints has a trailer. Naturally.

EUbits: New Heir to the Empire goes topless

In the, err, cardboard. Del Rey’s Erich Schoeneweiss treats us to a look at a just-printed copy of the Heir to the Empire: 20th Anniversary edition under the jacket. I still wish they’d gone with brand-new art, but making the original black and white does make it slightly less horrible. Slightly.

Listage. The Star Wars Report has ten Expanded Universe characters who could be in The Clone Wars. Some of you may hate the very concept, but hey: That’s what you get for reading prequel EU in George’s driveway. And hey: It means greater possibility for action figures! Just ask Quinlan Vos.

Giveaway. Paul S. Kemp is giving away two unbound galleys of his October paperback, Riptide.

Preview. Another look at The Blueprints from Laurel Woods at MTV. She also has an interview with Bonnie Burton.

Comic-Con news: Book of Sith coming in 2012

Book of SithThe team of The Jedi Path now invites readers to delve into the Dark Side with Book of Sith, coming from Becker & Mayer through Amazon Publishing in January 2012.

At Comic-Con International, Epic Ink (part of Becker & Mayer) is showcasing the amazing (and large) Star Wars: The Blueprints by J. W. Rinzler, in its first public appearance, but is also spreading the word about the upcoming project, Book of Sith. Don’t want to shell out $500 for Star Wars: The Blueprints? Maybe you can win a copy in Epic Ink’s Comic-Con Giveaway! Or just drool over it virtually with the trailer.

EUbits: Catching up with cover art, Fate of the Jedi excerpts, blueprints and more

Cover art. Two upcoming reprints are getting brand-new covers: Joe Schreiber’s Red Harvest and Michael Reaves’ Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter. Timothy Zahn also gives us our first look at the back of Choices of One on Facebook.

eBooks. Speaking of Zahn, he wrote about Star Wars and the Kindle for Amazon.

Fate of the Jedi. While we were in Columbus, two Ascension excerpts emerged: One long, one short. It’s out in August. Huh.

What in the what? If you really love blueprints — I mean REALLY love blueprints — then you’ve probably already jumped for joy about Star Wars: The Blueprints, since it was also announced last week sometime. As always when it comes to this collector edition stuff, I shrug.

EUbits: Sideshow might actually get around to making a Mara Jade figure. No, really!

Namesake corner. Mara Jade gets a namedrop in Sideshow’s SDCC video, which leads me to believe that we might actually see a figure before we all die of old age. Alas, it’s pretty much the same thing they said last time, regarding the Adam Huges painting. Skip straight to 2:40 for the brief clip.

Comic-Con is so last week. There were copies of Year by Year on sale at in San Diego, but the rest of us will just have to settle for a con report.

First draft peek. Paul S. Kemp gives fans a very early look inside Riptide.

Good news, procrastinators! Star Wars Blueprints is coming out in book form!
