Out this week: Agent of the Empire, Dawn of the Jedi

There’ll be a couple of thing waiting for Star Wars fans at the comic book store Wednesday: Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets #3 and Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan #2. If you’re not a subscriber, you might also want to keep an eye out for Star Wars Insider #138.

Meanwhile, on the book front, Timothy Zahn’s Scoundrels is creeping nearer, with only two weeks left until the release date of January 1st.

Out this week: Fate of the Jedi: Ascension in paperback, new Dawn of the Jedi

It’s something old and something new for Expanded Universe fans this week. Coming to bookstores tomorrow in paperback is the penultimate chapter of the Fate of the Jedi series, Christie Golden’s Ascension.

Meanwhile, Wednesday brings a new storyline to Dawn of the Jedi with The Prisoner of Bogan #1.

That’s it for books for the rest of the year until Timothy Zahn’s Scoundrels drops on January 1 – though there is a short story coming December 10 .

EUbits: Canon, continuity, and all that jazz (again.)

Let’s do the time warp again. Over at Tosche Station, Brian is the latest to weigh in on continuity and perspective in the Expanded Universe. If you’re with us in just shrugging at the latest Clone Wars kerfuffle (which Brian references – but he spends more time on Sword of the Jedi and Brian Wood’s Star Wars comic) you’ll enjoy it. If not… Well. I’ve already said my bit on all this.

Upcoming. Knights’ Archive spotted a brief blurb for Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void. (I’m a little surprised to see it’s a hardback, though I’m honestly not sure if we knew that already.) Also interesting is that Dark Horse is collecting the three Infinities mini-series into an omnibus… I’m hoping this will lead to one (or two) that collect all the best (funny!) bits of Star Wars Tales.

The blogside. Over at the StarWars.com blog, J.W. Rinzler talks about laying out The Making of Return of the Jedi, Tim Zahn shares some of his memorable experiences with books, and Daniel Wallace shares endnotes for the Book of Sith.

Reviews. EUCantina and Lightsaber Rattling take a look at The Essential Reader’s Companion.

Nonfiction. Matt Staggs reveals some of what Camille Paglia has to say about George Lucas in her upcoming book, Glittering Images.

SDCC video: The Star Wars book and comic panel

James, that scoundrel, sent in four videos from the panel yesterday, as well as new photos (starting here.) At this panel, they announced two new books and talked about several new comics, including Brian Woods’ Star Wars. Part 1, above, is the introductions and Dark Horse announcements

Then, Del Rey…

Their announcements…

And the longest bit, the question and answer session:

SDCC: Post-Fate of the Jedi novel from Denning, Dawn of the Jedi novel from new author coming

We got not one but two Expanded Universe announcements from Del Rey in San Diego today, and Fangirl has the details. You might also want to check out Bryan Young’s writeup of the panel, or the live tweets from it.

UPDATE: You’ll also want to check out Pablo Hidalgo’s blog post on his panels today, which covers the full laundry list of releases they talked about (including the comics, which I have, uhh, kind of neglected. Whoops.)

The one I know you’re hanging on your seats for is the first novel to follow the Fate of the Jedi series. Crucible by Troy Denning (of course) is a hardcover standalone with the Big 3 – that is, Luke, Han, and Leia.

They’ve earned the right to rest on their laurels and let the younger generation shoulder the burden–but fate has another adventure in store for our heroes, a quest only they can tackle and hope to survive…

It’s due out in the spring and features a Cliff Nielsen cover.

The big surprise, though, is that Del Rey is going into Dark Horse territory with a Dawn of the Jedi novel, Into the Void. It’s a paperback by new-to-the-EU author Tim Lebbon and is also due in the spring.

The also revealed the cover and a brief blurb for the fourth Coruscant Nights book, The Last Jedi. It’s also (still) a paperback.

Earlier in the day, Pablo shared a few tidbits from the Quirky Point of View panel. Something that’s sure to thrill a lot of Jaders: Jeffrey Brown will be doing a companion book to Darth Vader and Son, Vader’s Little Princess. And Matthew Reinhart (Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-Up Adventure) is working on a prequel trilogy pop-up book.

Oh, and fear not:

We’ll be there!

Out this week: Dawn of the Jedi, Ghost Prison

It’s yet another comic-only release week, so head to the comic shop on Wednesday for Dawn of the Jedi: Force Storm #5, which concludes the new series’ first arc, and Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #2.

Book folks, you’ll finally have something to pick up next week – the paperback of Tim Zahn’s Choices of One. After that, we’re looking at the mostly-reprinted Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories by John Jackson Miller (July 24) and, finally, Aaron Allston’s X-Wing: Mercy Kill (August 7.)

Out this week: Dawn of the Jedi #3

Just one new release this week: Dawn of the Jedi #3, though also shipping are reprints of #1 and #0.

The next book release is coming up next week, with Jeff Grubb’s Hutts-and-Jedi tale Scourge available on the 24th. Oddly, the Star Wars Books folks are having a chat for the book this week… I don’t think we’ll be recapping it, though we’ll be sure to link you to someone who does.

Out this week: Vortex paperback, Dawn of the Jedi reprint

If you’ve been following the Fate of the Jedi series in paperback, today is the day to go to the book store – the sixth book, Troy Denning’s Vortex, is out in mass market. Don’t forget, Erika reviewed it last year.

Meanwhile, Wednesday will bring those Dawn of the Jedi #1 reprints.

The only actual new thing you’ll find out there this week is the latest Star Wars Insider, which features an interview with Aaron Allston, Christie Golden, and Troy Denning on Fate of the Jedi and a short story by Jason Fry.

Our next book release will be The Essential Guide to Warfare on April 3.
