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.
Three brand-new comics, the latest Insider and a Legends reprint are coming to the shelves Wednesday, September 18. It’s an Age of Resistance twofer with both Rey and Rose (previewed last week) dropping, plusDoctor Aphra #36.
There’s a lot of sequel trilogy in the air as this week brings a new novel and three comics. On Tuesday, August 27, Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire by Delilah S. Dawson drops in hardcover and eBook. The book is set after The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi as General Leia’s spy Vi Moradi is tasked with setting up a Resistance base in a theme park on Batuu.
Marvel’s flagship Star Wars title is ending in November with issue #75. io9 reached out to Marvel after seeing the solicitation, and they confirmed it – but said we’ll learn more next month. Below, two of the covers:
A relaunch is inevitable, but will they go the expected route of continuing within the original trilogy – the current series is approaching Empire Strikes Back – or jump to a totally different part of the timeline?
Lots for comics readers this week, but also coming on Tuesday, August 20 is the Star Wars Resistance S1 DVD. I know a lot of folks are miffed this isn’t coming out on Blu-ray, but it can be purchased digitally – and the recent announcement that the show is only getting one more season means there’s been a lot of speculation that we might get a “Complete Series” Blu-ray later. Still, for those who don’t want to take chances (and with Disney+ in the mix, who knows if they’ll bother), this is your first shot at getting a physical copy of the season.
