Each copy has an exclusive cover (above) and is signed by author Daniel Jose Older (who’ll be in attendance,) and comes with a Peeka pin and a tote bag. It’ll cost $45 and does require picking up a wristband. There will also be copies at Denver Comic Con in June.
Other Star Wars authors at the con include Jason Fry, Rae Carson, Delilah S. Dawson, Chuck Wendig, Alan Dean Foster, and R.A. Salvatore.
I think they’re getting the hang of this new Expanded Universe.
We’re several years into the new canon now, but it’s been curious to watch how the books (and comics) have changed from our first tentative steps with A New Dawn. It might be no less a balancing act, but it feels like everything is both settling into a rhythm and not afraid to try something new.
Last Shot is the latest example of how the novels are able to both enhance the films (in this case, Solo, mostly) and stand on their own as complete stories.
Next week, though, brings the year’s first all-new novel: Daniel José Older’s Last Shot, which will tie into Solo. It’s the first of the Solo books, with the rest due out on the film’s release date of May 25. Check out our release schedule for the lineup.
