Tuesday is a big Rogue One day for releases, with two brand-new novels for younger readers. Beth Revis’ Rebel Rising is about Jyn Erso, while Greg Rucka’s Guardians of the Whills gives us some backstory on Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus. There’s also the paperback edition of James Luceno’s Catalyst, which gives us some background on Galen Erso and Orson Krennic, and first came out before the movie.
It also happens to be the first week of May, which means May 4 is Thursday. We expect plenty of puns, some sales, and a movie marathon on TBS. Fair warning: Traditionally this has not been a huge day for news, so don’t get your hopes too high.
Meanwhile, our book release schedule has been updated to reflect some of the Celebration announcements.
It’s another single-issue week for comic fans, with Poe Dameron #12 being the only new Star Wars on the comic shop shelves this Wednesday.
There’s only one thing this Wednesday, and it’s Poe Dameron #10.
Coming up later in the month is Claudia Gray’s Bloodline in paperback. It’s last year’s must-read Star Wars novel, and if you’ve been waiting for the price to drop, January 31 is the day. Our next brand-new novel is Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End – the final book in the new canon’s first post-Return of the Jedi trilogy – on February 21. Check out our book schedule for more upcoming releases.
We’ve got an interesting item out Tuesday: Pablo Hidalgo’s Star Wars Propaganda: A History of Persuasive Art in the Galaxy. The book is written from an in-universe perspective and features brand-new artwork, including “ten removable art prints.”
Our next book, due out on November 15, is the Rogue One novel Catalyst by James Luceno, which will give us some background on Orson Krennic and Galen Erso. (The first excerpt dropped last week.) Check out our book release schedule for more.
On Wednesday there’s Poe Dameron #6 and Star Wars Insider #168, plus hardcover reprints of the Attack of the Clones adaptation and Marvel’s own Star Wars series, with two different covers from John Cassaday and Stuart Immonen.
