Upcoming releases: Mark your calender!

Prepping for the new year, I’ve gone through and updated our Star Wars book schedule with several upcoming release dates. Please note that all these dates are from Random House, and no doubt subject to change. (Write them in pencil.)

Our releases page is always linked on the sidebar, if you ever find yourself in need.

As for you comic fans, even I don’t have the patience to track those crazy ever-changing release dates for more than a few days in advance, but I can throw you a bone – the preview for Dark Times #8, which may or may not come out at the end of the month.

Out this week, continued

Dark Horse: UR DOIN IT WRONGIndeed, Diamond does list Knights of the Old Republic #24 as shipping on Friday. And the wearisome Luke/Mara mush fans will be happy to learn that the latest 30th Anniversary hardcover, 1999’s Union, will also be gracing comic store shelves. Alas, the cover is still the one that caused at least half of Club Jade to flinch in embarrassment the first time around. Just remember: Underneath the horrid cover lies Stackpole. And butt bows. But mostly Stackpole.

And back to KOTOR, Dark Horse posted the preview for #24 today.

Out this week

eu-forceguide.jpgOn Tuesday head to the book store for the seventh book of the Legacy of the Force series, Fury by Aaron Allston. Also new to shelves is Ryder Windham’s Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force.

And for you Futurama fans, tomorrow also sees the release of Bender’s Big Score. Buy one for all your friends! (Star Wars connection: Among the obligatory references, Mark Hamill reportedly voices the ‘Chanukah Zombie.’)

Alas, there’s no such bounty for comic fans – Wednesday brings only Knights of the Old Republic #23.
