Out this week: Legacy #14, third KOTOR omnibus

Legacy #14We’ve got two comics coming out Wednesday, or rather, one comic and one trade collection. Legacy #14 is the new issue, and the third Knights of the Old Republic omnibus is the trade. Remember, you’ll want to pick this omnibus up ASAP, as we have no idea how long it’ll remain in print once with Marvel taking over the comics license next year.

We have just under a month until our next upcoming book, Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, on May 13.

Out this week: The Star Wars #7, Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows #5

The Star Wars #7Head 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.)

Out this week: Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back

empirestrikethback500Out 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.

Out this week: Star Wars #15

Star Wars #15Since 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.

Out this week: Knights of the Old Republic omnibus

kotoromComics are out on Tuesday this week due to the holiday, so stop by your local comic shop if you just can’t wait for the second Knights of the Old Republic (John Jackson Miller version) omnibus.

Coming in the new year will (no doubt) be plenty more comics, but our first novel release is Joe Schreiber’s Darth Maul: Lockdown on January 28. For more OT-centric fans, there’s the Han-centric Honor Among Thieves by James S. A. Corey in March.

Out this week: Zahn’s Scoundrels in paperback

scoundrels-cropIf 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)
