It’s the last week of April, and that means Paul Kemp’s Lords of the Sith is out on Tuesday. That’s the same day you’ll be able to pick up Ultimate Star Wars from DK, the first fully canon reference book.
On Wednesday, comic fans will find Princess Leia #3 waiting for them, as well as a second printing of Darth Vader #3.
Our next novel will be Christie Golden’s Dark Disciple, out on July 7. Also dropping that day is William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh.
Head to your regular comic outlet today to pick up Star Wars #4, which takes Luke back to Tatooine for some reason.
This week the releases start on Tuesday, with William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher in bookstores.
Wednesday brings not only Darth Vader #4, but Marvel’s first collection of the old Dark Horse stuff, the that’s-a-mouthful Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Empire Vol. 1.
It’s apparently Rebels week in releaseland, as we have the paperback edition of John Jackson Miller’s A New Dawn out on Tuesday. The hardcover dropped back before the show had even aired, so I expect the story of how Hera and Kanan met will find more of an audience now. James liked it! And hey, it’s John Jackson Miller, hard to go wrong there.
(If you have read A New Dawn, Miller posted the first part of his production notes last night. Naturally, they contain spoilers.)
For those already all in on Rebels lit, Marvel launches their fourth Star Wars title Wednesday with Kanan: The Last Padawan #1. It’s also a Rebels prequel, and Marvel’s first foray into the prequel era. StarWars.com has a five-page preview.
On Wednesday, head to your local comic store or app to nab Darth Vader #3, which introduces Aphra, “the galaxy’s foremost raider of lost weaponry.” There’s a preview at CBR.
There’s sure to be another new comic next week, but our next book release will be the paperback of John Jackson Miller’s A New Dawn on March 31.
Marvel keeps the new stuff coming as Wednesday brings us Princess Leia #2, only two weeks after #1. CBR has a preview of the new issue.
On Wednesday, head to the comic store (or your digital equivalent) to pick up Marvel’s Star Wars #3. (It has at least one variant cover.)
The new Star Wars Insider, #156, will also be out in the wild.
We’ll have more Darth Vader and Princess Leia comics in the coming weeks, and our next novel is the paperback release of John Jackson Miller’s A New Dawn on the 31st.
Tuesday brings us our first novel of the year, Kevin Hearne’s Heir to the Jedi. Fair warning: I was not impressed.
Wednesday sees us with yet another comic launch: Princess Leia #1. Marvel has posted a sketchbook from artist Terry Dodson.
Coming up, we have the A New Dawn paperback on March 31, and
William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace (yes, it got a title change) on April 7.
In stores Wednesday is Darth Vader #2, featuring, apparently, Vader’s runway walk. Will Vader win this round of GFFA’s Next Top Model? Tune in to see!
But first, today brings the paperback of James S.A. Corey’s Honor Among Thieves. I gave it a B+ back when it first came out last year.
Next week is Kevin Hearne’s Heir to the Jedi – look for my review next Monday. Star Wars.com released a preview of the audiobook yesterday.
The Marvel release parade continues this week with Darth Vader #1 in stores on Wednesday.
We’re expecting Darth Vader #2 this month as well, but it’s not on the distribution list for the 11th. The Princess Leia mini-series will begin next month.
Meanwhile, our next novel release is Kevin Hearne’s Heir to the Jedi on March 3.
