Things are a bit dire for new releases this Wednesday, December 4 as we hunker down and wait for The Rise of Skywalker. This week, our sole new release is Jedi Fallen Order: Dark Temple #5, concluding… Whatever that is. Then Marvel is offering a reprint version of their original 1977 Star Wars #1 and then Star Wars Saga #1, which appears to be a recap of their 2015-2019 series.
Ahsoka and Queen’s Shadow author E.K. Johnston will have a third Star Wars novel out next year. Queen’s Peril is a prequel to both Queen’s Shadow and The Phantom Menace, set in Padme’s early days as queen.
The covers are yet again by Tara Phillips. Queen’s Peril is due out in hardcover and eBook on May 5, 2020 from Disney-Lucasfilm Press.
Del Rey has revealed the title and cover for the first book of Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy, Chaos Rising.Continue reading “Zahn’s Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy begins with Chaos Rising”
Two comics are coming this Wednesday, November 27: Doctor Aphra #39, which sees her captured and Star Wars Adventures #28, where Chewbacca’s Journey to the Rise of Skywalker tale continues.Continue reading “Star Wars out this week: Doctor Aphra”
We have one novel, one comic and two trade reprints out this week. There’s also one book that actually came out last week that I had misdated – The Secrets of the Jedi by Marc Sumerak. On Tuesday, November 19 we have Kevin Shinick’s Force Collector, a YA novel set around the time of The Force Awakens.
On Wednesday, November 19, Marvel’s Star Wars #75, the last issue until the followup (next month) and the title’s ESB rebirth in January. On the trade front, there’s Age of Resistance: Villains and Star Wars Volume 12.
StarWars.com has the first excerpt from Kevin Schinick’s Force Collector, the second YA novel in the Journey to The Rise of Skywalker line.
Force Collector is out in hardcover and eBook on November 19.
Three books and one comic are coming this week. First up on Tuesday, November 5 is the Rebecca Roanhorse novel Resistance Reborn. (I reviewed it last week.) Also out is Anthony Daniels’ I Am C-3PO and Galaxy’s Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, November 6, our lone comic is Doctor Aphra #38.
There’s a lot to like in Rebecca Roanhorse’s Resistance Reborn, and I suspect that the other reviews will be quite effusive. If I can’t manage that, well, I can say that if you’re at all interested in how the Resistance begins to rebuild after The Last Jedi – or if you’re a longtime reader of the new canon fiction, this is a must-read.
Keeping things mostly spoiler-free under the cut.Continue reading “Review: Resistance Reborn will make you want more, and isn’t that the point?”
