Out this week: Chewbacca digest

Wednesday brings a new Star Wars Adventures digest, Chewbacca and the Slavers of the Shadowlands, featuring a tale from the youth of our favorite Wookiee.

And, not so much: If you were waiting for Sean Williams’ adaption of The Force Unleashed II to come out in paperback, it’ll be in stores next Tuesday.

Dark Horse’s November Star Wars comics

You show that Mando what's what, not-Aang!

The official site has the November solicitations, including the much-anticipated Purge: Seconds to Die one-shot. Also, Invasion #5, The Clone Wars #10, Knights of the Old Republic #47, and Legacy #42. There’s also the third installment of the Star Wars Adventures digests, Luke Skywalker and the Treasure of the Dragonsnakes.

And for reprints, a Shadows of the Empire omnibus and Thrawn Trilogy hardcover collecting the comic adaptions of Zahn’s Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command.

Out this week: Adventures, Legacy, Insider

It might be worth heading out to the comic store Wednesday, as Diamond is shipping Star Wars Adventures: Princess Leia and the Royal Ransom, Legacy #38 and even the latest Star Wars Insider.

Also worth looking for is The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Despite the October release date I spotted a copy or two at a Borders this weekend and I’m nowhere near San Diego.

Lifting really big rocks in Invasion #2

DarkHorse.com has the preview for Invasion #2, featuring our first look at the goings-on at Yavin IV… And man, Luke is a jerk. For those not NJO-inclined, there’s also a preview of the second Star Wars Adventures digest, Princess Leia and the Royal Ransom.

Invasion #1 is due out next week – Diamond willing – while Adventures is scheduled for August.

Out this week: Legacy, Adventures, KOTOR

Legacy #35Lots of booty for comic fans Wednesday with Legacy #35, Star Wars Adventures: Han Solo and the Hollow Moon of Khorya, and the sixth Knights of the Old Republic collection, Vindication.

And don’t forget that this Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, and you’ll be able to pick up a Clone Wars story, among others. Also, Henry Gilroy, John Jackson Miller, Ramón Pérez, and Matt and Shawn Fillbach are among the Dark Horse folks doing signings.

  • Preview: Take a peek at the first issue of the new Star Wars Adventures digest. Apparently some have found it in the UK, but there’s been no sign of it on Diamond so I wouldn’t go looking just yet.

  • The Blogside: Paul S. Kemp has thoughts on writing Crosscurrent, while Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff has two updates in her Padawan’s Journal series: Protocol Droids and Velveteen Bunnies and Mistakes Were Made.
  • The Clone Wars: Don’t expect to see a paperback of Karen Traviss’ Clone Wars novel anytime soon – There are no plans to release one, says Sue Rostoni. If you absolutely must have a paperback, look to the UK version.
  • Comics: DarkHorse.com has a new From the Editor, about Invasion. (Nothing we don’t already know, but we can expect an announcement in a week or so.)
  • Webcomics: Third and fourth updates in The Old Republic‘s Threat of Peace.

Out this week: Fate of the Jedi, Legacy

Fate of the Jedi: OutcastTomorrow we can finally all get our hands on Fate of the Jedi: Outcast, the first book in the latest post-ROTJ series. Also kicking off is Aaron Allston ‘s seven-city book tour in Lexington. And be sure to check out the excerpt if you haven’t already.

As for comics, Wednesday brings Legacy #34, and I’ve also been seeing the latest Insider in stores. And TFN is reporting that UK fans have spotted the first Star Wars Adventures digest, but I don’t think we’ll be seeing them in the states just yet.

EUbits: Deathtroopers, comics, new short story

The hype continues. Joe Schreiber reports that that the first look at Deathtroopers got over 50,000 page views. It’s officially big on the internet! (Plus he’ll be at NYCC this weekend with some extremely unofficial swag – the book’s soundtrack.)

Meanwhile, we have another sighting: Literary agent Colleen Lindsay, with nothing but praise.
