You have a reason to go to the bookstore today! Out now is William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher and Crucible by Troy Denning in paperback, though I can’t exactly recommend the latter. Still, we now know for sure that it’s the last gasp of the old (post-ROTJ) EU, so if you’re a completist, might as well go for it. Or not. I’ve done enough judging on that book.
As for the former, Cnet has a look at a few of the images.
Wednesday brings the hardcover collection of Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows to comic shops.
Head to the comic shop on Wednesday to pick up Legacy #16 and Rebel Heist #3.
You’ll find a reason to go to the bookstore next week, as both William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return and the Crucible paperback drop on July 1.
Wednesday brings the release of Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #1, which wraps up the character’s arc from The Clone Wars. It’s our first fully canon comic, due to being based on scripts and designs originally conceived for the show. Also coming this week is the second trade collection of the Ania Solo Legacy, Outcasts of the Broken Ring.
Comics aside, our next book releases will be William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return and the Crucible paperback, both on July 1.
Out Tuesday is Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, J.W. Rinzler’s complete storyboard collection for A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. We got a peek at some of these a few weeks back, and of course there’s a trailer as well.
Meanwhile, Wednesday brings Star Wars #17 to the comic shops. The end is nigh: We know that series is ending at #20.
On the comic shipping lists for Wednesday is the first of a new limited series, Rebel Heist #1. The Han-centric story is penned by Matt Kindt. Also out is the seventh Dark Times trade collection, A Spark Remains.
Our next book, out in two weeks on May 13, is Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy edited by J.W. Rinzler.
We’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.
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.
