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?”
One of Resistance Reborn‘s biggest “secrets” is out of the bag – Wedge Antilles (and someone else canon fiction readers will recognize) will be back in the novel. StarWars.com has an excerpt, and the final cover, which you can also see below.
Resistance Reborn, by Rebecca Roanhorse, arrives November 5.Continue reading “Catch up with Wedge in new Resistance Reborn excerpt”
Four brand-new comics are out on Wednesday, October 30. Marvel’s entry in the Journey to the Rise of Skywalker wraps up in Allegiance #4 (preview), while IDW’s begins in Star Wars Adventures #27 (preview). Also wrapping up is Return to Vader’s Castle #5 (preview), and there’s a standalone tale in Doctor Aphra Annual #3 (preview).
Doctor Aphra‘s ongoing is ending this year as Marvel reboots their Star Wars line, but just like the flagship title, she’s getting a new start in the new year. A new Doctor Aphra #1 is due out in April, Marvel announced in London this week. It will be written by Alyssa Wong, with interior art by Marika Cresta, and covers from Valentina Remenar. Is this Marvel’s first all-woman creative team for Star Wars? Seems likely!Continue reading “Doctor Aphra comic relaunches in the spring”
