It’s a noteworthy week for releases, with the year’s first all-new novel and a comic that takes us – very briefly – into shouting distance of The Last Jedi.
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.
There’s one middle grade reference book, one comic and two trades being released this week. First up, on Tuesday, April 3, is the Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles by Landry Q. Walker.
Then, on Wednesday, April 4, head to your favorite comic venue for Star Wars #46 or the latest trade in the series, Ashes of Jedha, which collects #38-43. Marvel is also shipping a hardcover collection of their 40th anniversary cover art, if that’s your bag.
Have you stayed strong? Tuesday, March 27 is the day: The Last Jedi arrives on Blu-ray. The actual copies you’ll get are more or less the same everywhere, but Best Buy has steelbooks and Target’s version comes with a book and an extra feature on porgs. No, I am neither an expert nor a collector of home releases. These are the standard versions:
There’s also the paperback of Christie Golden’s Battlefront II: Inferno Squad.
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.
This week brings two The Last Jedi adaptations, two comics and the latest Insider. After a delay of several months, Jason Fry’s The Last Jedi novelization is finally dropping on Tuesday, March 6. (There’s also a junior novel version by Michael Kogge.)
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.
There will be just one thing waiting for Star Wars fans in the comic shop this Wednesday, February 21: Doctor Aphra #17.
Meanwhile, we draw ever closer to March 6 and our next novel release, Jason Fry’s The Last Jedi novelization. Our book release schedule is finally filling out for spring thanks to Friday’s Solo book announcement.
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.
