Out this week: Dark Times, free stuff

dtfc4In the comic shops on Wednesday will be Dark Times: Fire Carrier #4, but don’t forget that Saturday also happens to be Free Comic Book Day and Dark Horse is offering a Star Wars/Captain Midnight/Avatar: The Last Airbender book. More on that later, though…

Meanwhile, next week brings a novel, Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into The Void.

Out this week: Vader’s Little Princess, new Legacy

Vader's Little PrincessOut Tuesday is Vader’s Little Princess, Jeffrey Brown’s followup to last year’s wildly popular Darth Vader and Son. Also out now from Chronicle is something I forgot to mention last week – the standalone hardcover edition of Daniel Wallace’s Book of Sith.

Both Brown and Wallace, along with Lucasfilm’s Johnathan Rinzler, will be chatting about Star Wars on May 1 at the Star Wars and Chronicle Books blogs. Submit your question(s) now!

Meanwhile, comic fans will have something waiting for them on Wednesday as well: Legacy #2.

Out this week: Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #1

Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #1Finally, a feast! For comic fans, anyway. In the shops on Wednesday is Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #1 and the fourth printing of Star Wars #1.

And there are two collections as well: Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison in hardcover and the trade paperback of Knight Errant: Escape – the series’ final (for now, anyway) storyline.

Out this week: Dark Times’ Fire Carrier continues

Dark Times: Fire Carrier #3Need a read? Head to your local comic shop today to pick up Dark Times: Fire Carrier #3, our lone release this week.

If you don’t mind dropping a bit more than $2.99, the non-limited edition reasonably priced version of Star Wars: The Blue Prints came out yesterday.

There will be many comics between now and then, but if it’s novels you want, you’ll have to wait until May 7 for Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void. In the meantime, here’s a look at the finished jacket.

Out this week: The return of Legacy

The new LegacyThe new Legacy #1 will be in comic stores tomorrow. Boasting an all-new creative team (Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman,) the new volume taes place after the events of Legacy: War but focuses on Ania Solo, the “great-great granddaughter” of Han and Leia.

If interest here is any indication – the posts on this series have been some of the most popular comics content on CJ to date – plenty of you are looking forward to this one.

In the meantime, there’s a new interview with Bechko and Hardman at Comicosity.

Out this week: Willow on Blu-ray, Star Wars #3

The first Blu-ray of Lucasfilm’s 1989 fantasy film Willow will be out tomorrow. Star Warwick Davis and director Ron Howard will be holding a live Q&A tomorrow under the hashtag #WillowChat.

Willow was my first Lucasfilm movie – first that I remember, anyway – but I haven’t watched it in years, and I’ll be live-tweeting it sometime next weekend. I hope some of you will join me – stay tuned for details.

Now, back to Star Wars – literally. Look for Brian Wood’s Star Wars #3 in the comic shops on Wednesday, as well as the digest The Clone Wars: Defenders of the Lost Temple.

Our next novel, Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void, is due in May.

Out this week: The Last Jedi. No, the other one.

The Last Jedi (detail)Out Tuesday is Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnoff’s The Last Jedi, which continues the story of Jax Pavan from the Coruscant Knights book.

Wednesday has plenty to offer comic fans, with Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets #5 and Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan #3. Plus there’s the third printing of Star Wars #1.

Our next novel release won’t be until May, with Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void.
