Alexander Freed’s Alphabet Squadron is out in just under weeks. The cover features Yrica Quell, “X-wing pilot and leader,” but now Del Rey has revealed the remaining members of the squadron. Check out their pics and bios in the gallery.
Alphabet Squadron is out June 4 in hardcover and eBook.
Just two new Star Wars comics coming on Wednesday, March 22. It’s a very Jabba week as Greedo heads to Batuu in Galaxy’s Edge #2 (though the summary still mention the Resistance, so… flashbacks?), and gets his own spotlight in Age of Rebellion: Jabba the Hutt.
Three comics and two trades are coming our way on Wednesday, May 15. Brand new are Star Wars #66, Age of Rebellion: Lando Calrissian and TIE Fighter #2. The trade reprints collect Age of Republic: Heroes and Han Solo: Imperial Cadet.
The TIE comics are a tie-in/prequel to our next book, Alexander M. Freed’s Alphabet Squadron, which is out June 4. More upcoming books in our schedule.
For May 4, StarWars.com has revealed the Journey to The Rise of Skywalker publishing slate. And this time, with a gap between films, we actually get several novels focusing on sequel trilogy characters.
From Del Rey, that means a new-to-Star Wars author, Rebecca Roanhorse, taking on Resistance Reborn, and Justina Ireland (Lando’s Luck) with the middle-grade Spark of the Resistance. Cavan Scott and Elsa Charretier also return with Choose Your Destiny: A Finn & Poe Adventure. From Marvel, there’s Allegiance, a miniseries involving Leia and the Mon Calamari. (Go into the galleries for more detail.)
It’s not in the gap, though: Kevin Shinick, another new-to-Star Wars author, has Force Collector, starring a “restless teenager” on Jakku prior to The Force Awakens.
Spark of the Resistance and A Finn & Poe Adventure are first out on October 4; The four-issue Allegiance begins October 9 and drops weekly through the 30th; Resistance Reborn is out November 12 and Force Collector on November 19.
For our nonfiction and reference offerings, we’ve got the same basic template we’ve seen since TFA. Phil Szostak’s The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Pablo Hidalgo’s The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary are both due out the same day as the film: December 20.
A movie novelization isn’t expected until spring. There’s more of the usual kid stuff and sticker books at StarWars.com.
A mishap with an Australian book listing for Delilah Dawson’s Black Spire seems to have spilled the beans: There might be a Kylo Ren book in the pipeline somewhere. Or a Kylo Ren book proposal, anyway. Maybe? It’s a little fishy.

Three new comics and a Legends reprint trade are coming on Wednesday, April 24. The theme park onslaught begins with Galaxy’s Edge #1. Will there be Coke bottles? Probably. Meanwhile, Doctor Aphra #31, Vader: Dark Visions #3 and The Empire Vol. 5 also drop.
Welcome to the very belated release post for the week of Wednesday, April 17.
This week’s biggest release is Claudia Gray’s Master & Apprentice. Available in hardcover and eBook, it tells a Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi story from several years before The Phantom Menace, plus flashbacks to Qui-Gon’s time training with Dooku. Also out now is the first actual making-of book of the Disney era, Making Solo by ILM’s Rob Bredow.
It’s a big week for comics as well, with the release of TIE Fighter #1, the comic series that ties into the upcoming novel Alphabet Squadron. Also on comic shelves is the Age of Rebellion Special and Star Wars Adventures #20.
Our next release is the audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost, which drops on April 30, followed by Alphabet Squadron in June. More in our book release schedule.
