Head to the comic shop (or digital equivalent) on Wednesday for Star Wars #19, the second to last issue of the series.
You have a reason to go to the bookstore today! Out now is William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher and Crucible by Troy Denning in paperback, though I can’t exactly recommend the latter. Still, we now know for sure that it’s the last gasp of the old (post-ROTJ) EU, so if you’re a completist, might as well go for it. Or not. I’ve done enough judging on that book.
As for the former, Cnet has a look at a few of the images.
Wednesday brings the hardcover collection of Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows to comic shops.
Comic review: With Rebel Heist #3 taking a fresh point-of-view on Chewbacca, this series is getting better and better, says James.
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…)
Will Marvel announce their first new Star Wars comics in July? The (rather brief) word on the street (per Bleeding Cool) is that they’ll announce two ongoings the week before San Diego Comic Con.
On the comic shipping lists for Wednesday is the first of a new limited series, Rebel Heist #1. The Han-centric story is penned by Matt Kindt. Also out is the seventh Dark Times trade collection, A Spark Remains.
Our next book, out in two weeks on May 13, is Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy edited by J.W. Rinzler.
