Head to the comic shop this week to pick up The Star Wars #7, Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #5 and the second Brian Wood Star Wars trade collection, From the Ruins of Alderaan.
In stores now, because I am a ding-a-ling and haven’t done a releases post in a couple weeks, is Star Wars #16 and the paperback of Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void, a novel based on the Dawn of the Jedi comics. I liked it, even going in with no background on the era, and gave it a B+ when it came out in hardcover last year.
We still don’t have too much in the way of upcoming releases, but there is J.W. Rinzler’s Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy (May 13) and William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher, plus the paperback of Troy Denning’s Crucible (both July 1.)
On Wednesday, head to your comic shop for Legacy #13. Apparently lightwhips are making a comeback! Exciting stuff.
Alas, when it comes to novels, the schedule is pretty bare, but there is the paperback of Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void coming up on April 1.
Out this week is the sequel to one of the few Star Wars books your non-Star Wars obsessive friends (assuming they’re drama/English geeks or drama/English geek-adjacent) have read. Yes, William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back will be in stores today.
For those who like their Star Wars a little less literary, or their Shakespeare a little less Star Wars, there are comics. Dawn of the Jedi: Force War #5 and Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #4
Our next novel is the paperback release of Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void on April 1, with J.W. Rinzler’s Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy on May 13. And the drama/English geeks will get William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return on July 1. The cover was recently revealed on Cnet.
Since we just had a novel released, this week brings only a pair of comics: Star Wars #15 and The Star Wars #6 on Wednesday.
(I’m not sure if I want to make a joke about Courtship of Princess Leia or, as the cover text urges, a reference to The Princess Bride. How about we all just go watch The Princess Bride instead?)
In any case, our next book will be William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back on March 18.
Comics are out n Tuesday again due to the holiday. So swing by your local comic shop to pick up The Star Wars #0 and the first Dark Times omnibus.

Coming to the comic store on Wednesday is The Star Wars #4 and a second printing of The Star Wars #1 .

If you’ve been waiting for Timothy Zahn’s Scoundrels to hit in paperback, head to the bookstore today. For the comic fans, there’s Legacy #9 on Wednesday.
Novel-wise, that’s a wrap for 2013. Our next one, Darth Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber, was recently pushed back a week to January 28. And there’s more Han coming in March with James S. A. Corey’s Empire and Rebellion: Honor Among Thieves, which Jason Fry says is “one of the best EU books I’ve read in a very long time.” (via)
John Ostrander and Jan Duursema are back Wednesday with a new arc of their Dawn of the Jedi series in Force War #1. Meanwhile, collections of Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin and Legacy: Prisoner of the Floating World will also debut in comic shops.
