You’ll finally be able to pick up John Jackson Miller’s Kenobi on Tuesday, but in the meantime, there are Miller interviews at Eleven-ThirtyEight and Fangirl. There’s an excerpt read by James Arnold Taylor and a look at the book’s geography as well… And my review will be up tomorrow.
Also out on Tuesday is Jeffrey Brown’s Jedi Academy. The author of Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess now has a bigger book that is a Diary of a Wimpy Kid take on being in a Jedi middle school, under Yoda. Check out Bleeding Cool’s preview of the book, or watch the book’s trailer.
Meanwhile, in comics, Legacy #6 is out on Wednesday.
Our next novel, Martha Wells’ Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge, will be out on September 24th, while the highly anticipated The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi by J. W. Rinzler is out October 1.
Wednesday will be good for Star Wars comic fans! The latest arc of Dark Times continues with A Spark Remains #2, while Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #5 wraps up that storyline. (A hardcover collection is expected in November.)
John Jackson Miller’s Knights of the Old Republic joins the omnibus program with a collection of issues #0-18.
Speaking of JJM, his Kenobi is coming out in hardcover next week.
It’s a good week for comics: Legacy #5 ends the revived title’s first arc with, apparently, some sort of bang. And for those who prefer collections, there are trade paperback editions of Dawn of the Jedi: Prisoner of Bogan and Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets.
It’s also time for non-subscribers to start keeping an eye out for Star Wars Insider #143, guest-edited by Warwick Davis and featuring a short story by John Jackson Miller that ties into our next novel release, August’s Kenobi.
Head to the bookstore tomorrow for Troy Denning’s Crucible, the Big 3-centric followup to the Fate of the Jedi series. (Can’t wait? Here’s an excerpt.) Look for my review tomorrow morning.
Also note that Del Rey’s Star Wars FanCorps is now live!
Meanwhile, comic fans will have Star Wars #7 and the Purge TPB to look foward to on Wednesday.
Our next novel release will be John Jackson Miller’s Kenobi on August 27.
William Shakespeare’s Star Wars is in stores today, mashup fans. Of course it has a book trailer.
There are no Star Wars comics this week, but next week will bring us a novel – Troy Denning’s Crucible.
Lots of stuff coming to the comic stores this week – well, three, which is ‘lots’ for our purposes. First off there’s Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #3 and a new Clone Wars digest, The Smuggler’s Code, starring Obi-wan. And for the trade paperback aficionados, there’s the collected Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral.
And finally, book fans, next week brings Aaron Allston’s X-Wing: Mercy Kill in paperback to match up with the rest of the series.
Star Wars #6 will be waiting for comic fans in the shops come Wednesday.
It’s also time for non-subscribers to start keeping an eye out for Star Wars Insider #142, which contains a few things of interest to us.
Meanwhile, our next novel release is the paperback for Aaron Allston’s X-Wing: Mercy Kill on the 25th.
Out today from DK is The Clone Wars Episode Guide by Jason Fry, detailing all 108 episodes of the show. Fry gave us a few details on his Tumblr, as well as in a Twitter chat earlier this afternoon.
Meanwhile, in the comic shop on Wednesday Dark Times wraps up the latest arc with Fire Carrier #5.
Later this month we’ll see the paperback of Aaron Allston’s X-Wing: Mercy Kill, while July brings William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher and Troy Denning’s Crucible.
Out right now – I missed it last week – is Star Wars Storyboards: The Prequel Trilogy by J.W. Rinzler.
Meanwhile, Wednesday brings the conclusion of Dawn of the Jedi‘s second arc in Prisoner of Bogan #5 as well as Legacy #3.
Our forthcoming slate includes Aaron Allston’s X-Wing: Mercy Kill in paperback (June 25,) William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher (July 2) and Troy Denning’s Crucible (July 9.)
Just one this time around: Head to the comic shop on Wednesday for Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin #2.
