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.
The big-ticket item this week is the digital home release of The Last Jedi, which drops on Tuesday, March 13. It features 14 deleted scenes, various documentaries and an audio commentary from director Rian Johnson. If you want the Blu-ray, you’re stuck waiting until March 27.
We’re just over a week away from the release of Jason Fry’s The Last Jedi novelization on Tuesday, March 6. Copies have been spotted out in the wild, and “spoilers” (such as they are) are running rampant, so beware the kneejerk reactions.
Coming to the comic shops on Wednesday, February 14 are three new comics and one collection. The debut this week is Thrawn #1, the first issue of an adaptation of Timothy Zahn’s 2017 novel by Jody Houser and Luke Ross. It’s joined by Darth Vader #11, Poe Dameron #24, and Star Wars Adventures Vol. 2.
It’s our last gasp before all The Last Jedi books hit on December 15, with the novella collection Canto Bight hitting the shelves on Tuesday, December 5. It features stories from Saladin Ahmed, Rae Carson, Mira Grant, and John Jackson Miller and gives us our first detailed look at some of the characters inhabiting the casino world.
There’s plenty for fans to pick up at the comic shops this week. In the shops on Wednesday, November 29 are Star Wars Adventures #4 (with two covers), Jedi of the Republic: Mace Windu #4, Poe Dameron #21, atrade of the Rogue One adaptation, plus Star Wars Insider.
In shops now are Star Wars #39 and the first trade collection of the current Darth Vader series, Imperial March.
Two comics and three trades will grace the comic book shelves on Wednesday, November 15. Our new comics are Darth Vader #8 and Doctor Aphra #14. The trades are the complete Captain Phasma, Poe Dameron Volume 3: Legends Lost (collects #7, #14-19) and Rise of the Sith Volume 2, a Legends collection that looks to mostly draw on works set around and during The Phantom Menace.
Oh, and Battlefront II is coming out on Friday, I guess? Or it’s already out for some? I don’t know – games are so very much not my division, so that’s all you’ll get on that from here. (At least until someone does the obligatory roundup post with all the relevant info/clips that may pertain to things we do care about.)
This week brings two new books and three comics. Del Rey’s 40th Anniversary anthology From a Certain Point of View is out Tuesday, October 3. It features 40 short stories from 42 authors, all set during A New Hope. Also out Tuesday is William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken by Ian Doescher.
