The mass market paperback edition of Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Life Debt drops Tuesday. I gave it a B back when the hardcover came out.
Rogue One is out in digital now; next Tuesday brings the Blu-ray and DVD versions, plus a new Star Wars Visual Encyclopedia.
This week brings only Darth Maul #2 to comic shops on Wednesday.
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.
Coming on Wednesday is Doctor Aphra #5 and a new Legends collection. The Old Republic Volume 2 collects #19-37 of Dark Horse’s Knights of the Old Republic series, plus the series’ handbook.
Coming Wednesday is Star Wars #29, featuring… Yoda and a rock thing that looks kind of like Thanos? You do you, Marvel.
Out Tuesday is Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End, the final book in the new canon’s first trilogy. The Norra Wexley and Rae Sloane double-sided poster are exclusive to the Barnes & Noble hardcover.
Already out and about are two excerpts and a reveal, while Lucasfilm editor Jennifer Heddle offers six reasons to be excited about the book. Look for my review tomorrow.
This Wednesday brings only one comic, Poe Dameron #11.
Next week, however, we get Aftermath: Empire’s End. We’ve already seen posters and one excerpt – expect a bit more hype this week.
There’s one new comic and two Vader-themed reprints up on the slate for Wednesday. The comic is Doctor Aphra #4, while the first reprint is the second hardcover volume of Marvel’s Darth Vader. The third item is the third Empire-oriented Legends collection.
Tuesday brings Claudia Gray’s Bloodline in paperback. The book gives us some insight into the state of the galaxy not so long before The Force Awakens and was one of the best-reviewed Star Wars novels in years. (I gave it an A-.) Wel worth reading, if you haven’t already.
On Wednesday the comic shops will have Star Wars #28 and Darth Maul #1, the start of Marvel’s latest mini-series.
Our next novel is Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End, out on February 21. Star Wars Books has recently been sharing images of the jacket and finished hardcover. Check out the full schedule on our book release calendar.
This Wednesday, comic fans can pick up Doctor Aphra #3 as well as the fourth trade collection of Marvel’s current Star Wars series, Flight of the Harbinger, which collects issues #20-25.
