EUbits: Rebel Force #5, Bohnhoff on droids, reviews and a Clone Wars comic preview

Rebel Force: The official site gives us our first look at book five of Scholastic’s latest series, Trapped. (Is anyone reading these? I keep forgetting they exist.) It’s due out in January.

New comic day brings comic previews

I just got back from the comic store and just realized that I forgot to pick up Star Wars Adventures. Curses! I guess that’s half the excuse I need to go back for Free Comic Book Day.

But my real point here is that Dark Horse has come through with three – count ’em – three previews: Legacy #36, Knights of the Old Republic #41, and The Clone Wars #6.

And for the Brits, here’s a peek at The Clone Wars UK Comic #5.7.

‘Hostage Crisis’ takes The Clone Wars out to break

Tonight’s the night: The very last new episode of The Clone Wars before S2 starts sometime in the fall. I’m throwing a party! (A Battlestar Galactica finale party! Okay, not really: I’ll be at work, and not watching either show.)

As for BSG’s finale, stay tuned.

The Clone Wars ‘Hostage Crisis’ teaser

Cad Bane, bounty hunters… The buzz for this episode is already pretty steady, but it is the finale, so I suppose I can allow it. (Kidding! No, really!) See the clip (and some pics) at a slightly better quality over at io9. And as James already linked, Filoni talks up Bane over at

Also, something I’ve been pondering… The same organization who didn’t want there to be an Anakin Skywalker and an Anakin Solo in two completely different time periods is perfectly okay with a Darth Bane and a Cad Bane? Is this progress, or is something fishy at work? (Perhaps a Mon Calamari Sith lord?) Or has ‘Bane’ simply become badass shorthand over the years? We’ll just have to see if this flavor-of-the-week survives his debut.
