Out this week: Chewbacca #5, Obi-Wan and Anakin #1

This Wednesday brings two new comics, the end of one miniseries and the beginning of a second: Chewbacca #5 and Obi-Wan and Anakin #1. It’s also time to start looking for Star Wars Insider #162, which makes up for lost time with end-to-end The Force Awakens interviews.

Out last week was Darth Vader #14, the fourth part of the ‘Vader Down’ crossover event.

Our next novel release will be Alan Dean Foster’s The Force Awakens novelization in hardcover, on January 5. You can pick it up in eBook formats right now.

Star Wars out this week: Some movie, I hear?

First and foremost, yes, we’re getting the first Star Wars movie in a decade this week – a lucky few (hundred? thousand?) tonight in Hollywood, and the rest of the world a few days later, depending on your location.

But for our purposes, let’s look at Wednesday first, which brings the Darth Vader Annual, Kanan #9, and the Legends Epic Collection: Infinities, because Marvel heard you’d like some alternate universe in your alternate universe.

Now Friday is when things get really interesting, as not only is there a movie, but a whole bunch of books as well. For fiction, there’s The Force Awakens novelization by Alan Dean Foster (eBook only – the hardcover isn’t out until January 5) and Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka. For reference, Pablo Hidalgo’s The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary, The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Sections from Kemp Remillard and Jason Fry, and of course, The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Star Wars out this week: Short stories, Star Wars #13

The Journey to The Force Awakens continues today with the release of the four Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens eBook short stories from Landry Q. Walker: ‘The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku’, ‘High Noon on Jakku’, ‘The Face of Evil’ and ‘All Creatures Great and Small’. These are only in ebook format for now, but a print anthology (with two additional stories) will be coming from Disney Lucasfilm Press in the spring.

Meanwhile, for those looking to avoid anything that may touch on The Force Awakens for the time being, there’s also Star Wars #13 on Wednesday.

A fifth short story, ‘The Perfect Weapon’, came out last week. Although we’ll certainly be getting comics throughout the rest of the month, this leaves us with no prose releases until the floodgates open on December 18.

Star Wars out this week: Heir to the Jedi PB, Vader #13

On Tuesday, Kevin Hearne’s Heir to the Jedi is out in paperback. I reviewed it when the hardcover came out, and was not particularly impressed.

More promising is Wednesday, which brings Darth Vader #13 – the second part of the ‘Vader Down’ crossover – and Chewbacca #4.

UPDATE: I forgot that Delilah S. Dawson’s ‘The Perfect Weapon’ short story is also out Tuesday as an eBook.

Star Wars out this week; Vader Down #1, Star Wars #12

Marvel’s first official Star Wars crossover event begins this Wednesday with the release of Vader Down #1. (It will continue in upcoming issues of Darth Vader and Star Wars.) Also in the shops this week, Star Wars #12 and Kanan #8, plus the trade paperback collection of Shattered Empire.

Star Wars out this week: Battlefront: Twilight Company, Star Wars #11

In a slight departure from all The Force Awakens buzz, Tuesday bring the novel Battlefront: Twilight Company by Alexander Freed. It has pretty good buzz from what I can tell, so if this is something that appeals to you, might as well go for it.

(Subscribers can expect the latest issue of the Star Wars Insider any day now. It contains the short story ‘Inbrief’ by Janine K. Spendlove, featuring a character from the novel. Non-subscribers… Well, it’s not on the shipping list this week, but soon.)

Meanwhile, Wednesday’s new comic is Star Wars #11. If you’ve been waiting for trades, look for collection of both Princess Leia and Kanan: The Last Padawan.

Out this week: Shattered Empire #4, Darth Vader #11

It’s trailer day! But there’ll be a few things waiting for comic fans later in the week, too. Wednesday brings Shattered Empire #4, the last issue of the miniseries. (Luke fans, you definitely want to check out the preview.) There’s also Darth Vader #11.

And finally, a trade, Legends Epic Collection: The Empire, collecting several issues of Dark Times.
