Out 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.
Finally, 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.
Need 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.
Just one release this week, coming to a comic book store near you on Wednesday: Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan #4.
Our next novel release is also Dawn of the Jedi-themed… Into the Void by Tim Lebbon, coming May 7.
The 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.
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 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.
Wednesday brings Brian Wood’s Star Wars #2 to your local comic shop… And that’s it.
We’ve still got two weeks to go until the next novel release, Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnoff’s The Last Jedi.
Wednesday brings the return of Dark Times with Fire Carrier #1 featuring Jedi Master K’Kruhk and a gaggle of padawans on the run.
As for novels, next up is The Last Jedi, a follow-up by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnoff to their Coruscant Nights trilogy, coming up on February 26.
Let’s put a lid on it: The final Fate of the Jedi book, Troy Denning’s Apocalypse, is out today in paperback. Goodbye to the (hopefully) last of the mega-series…
Also, I don’t generally cover merchandise in these posts, but apparently the Kotobukiya Jaina Solo figure also goes on sale today.
For comic fans, Wednesday will bring Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets #4 and an Infinities omnibus. It’s just the three ‘what-if’ comics, alas – I’m still waiting for Dark Horse to collect all the funny Tales/Tag and Bink stuff that also falls under the Infinities umbrella.
Our next upcoming novel is something brand new – The Last Jedi, also a paperback, is due February 26.
