Star Wars out this week: Marvel mini-series collection

Princess Leia #3 (crop)There’s only one thing out this week, as we wait and gear up for the Rogue One rush. Wednesday brings a hardcover reprint collection from Marvel, Heroes for A New Hope. It collects the Princess Leia, Lando and Chewbacca miniseries.

Our next two books are James Luceno’s Catalyst (November 15) and Carrie Fisher’s The Princess Diarist (November 22). Check out our book release schedule for what’s coming up in December and beyond.

Star Wars out this week: Battlefront: Twilight Company, Star Wars #11

In a slight departure from all The Force Awakens buzz, Tuesday bring the novel Battlefront: Twilight Company by Alexander Freed. It has pretty good buzz from what I can tell, so if this is something that appeals to you, might as well go for it.

(Subscribers can expect the latest issue of the Star Wars Insider any day now. It contains the short story ‘Inbrief’ by Janine K. Spendlove, featuring a character from the novel. Non-subscribers… Well, it’s not on the shipping list this week, but soon.)

Meanwhile, Wednesday’s new comic is Star Wars #11. If you’ve been waiting for trades, look for collection of both Princess Leia and Kanan: The Last Padawan.

Out this week: New Vader, Princess Leia from Marvel

Well, after a few weeks of nothing, we finally have an actual lineup for this week’s releases – at least if you’re collecting comics. Wednesday brings Princess Leia #5 (preview) and Darth Vader #7 (preview,) plus the third printing of Star Wars #3. Then Marvel’s third collection of Legends/Dark Horse stuff, or, the Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Old Republic Vol. 1. It reprints Knights of the Old Republic 1-18.

Also, if you’re really bored, the Tarkin paperback is out tomorrow.

If you’re new to buying comics, Eleven-ThirtyEight had a nice piece last week on the hows and whys of the industry. For the record, I always use Diamond for new release posts – the dates on Marvel’s site have proved no less reliable than Dark Horse’s were!

Our next novel, Christie Golden’s Dark Disciple, drops next week on July 7.
