You’ll never believe what’s on the comic shipping list for Wednesday… It’s the much-delayed C-3PO special, which tells the story behind his red arm in The Force Awakens. Less surprisingly, Darth Vader #19.
Also now available is the free eBook sampler from Del Rey, which contains an excerpt of Claudia Gray’s May 3 novel Bloodline and several short stories.
There’s a lot this week, first and foremost The Force Awakens on Blu-ray Tuesday. There’s also a number of book for young readers, namely Pablo Hidalgo’s Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, Landry Q. Walker’s Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens and Elizabeth Schaefer’s The Force Awakens Storybook.
Comic fans will have reasons to shop as well, as Marvel drops Poe Dameron #1 on Wednesday.
Out in paperback on Tuesday is Aftermath by Chuck Wendig, the first of the new canon novels to take place after Return of the Jedi. I gave it a B+ back when it first came out, and the sequel is out in July.
On Wednesday, comic fans will be able to get their hands on Darth Vader #18.
And Friday, of course, brings The Force Awakens in digital, with the Blu-Ray due out next Tuesday.
Head to the comic shop on Wednesday for Star Wars #17, Obi-Wan and Anakin #3, and volume 2 of Legends Epic Collection: The New Republic, which appears to be all X-wing material.
Also, missed last week, Star Wars Insider #164 is in stores now.
The Rebels tie-in comic concludes with Kanan #12, in stores on Wednesday.
Today brings the paperback of Christie Golden’s Dark Disciple, the only novel (so far) based on unproduced scripts from The Clone Wars. And on Wednesday, there’s Darth Vader #17 at the comic shops.
Waiting at your preferred comic retailer this Wednesday will be Kanan #11 – the series’ second-to-last issue – and the trade collection of the Chewbacca mini-series.
As for that C-3PO comic that’s been continually delayed, it’s going to press any day now and is expected for a March 30 release.
There’ll be one brand-new comic waiting this Wednesday, Star Wars #16, the beginning of the new ‘Rebel Jail’ storyline. Also on the shipping list are second printings of Darth Vader #13, #14, #15 and Star Wars #14.
A new story arc begins in this week’s only new release, Darth Vader #16, out Wednesday.
On the book front, February is a bust, and March brings only the paperbacks of Christie Golden’s Dark Disciple and Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath.
Our next new novel is out May 3, and we just got a cover and excerpt for it last week: Claudia Gray’s Bloodline. It’s the first post-Return of the Jedi novel to focus on one of the big 3 in the new canon.
Head to the comic store on Wednesday for Obi-Wan and Anakin #2, plus Star Wars Insider #163.
