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.
Everything is geared up towards Celebration right now – including me, which is why this post is a day later than usual. But there’s still two brand new comics and a reprint coming on Wednesday, April 10.
Age of Rebellion starts out double-strong with both Princess Leia and Grand Moff Tarkin. Then Star Wars Volume 10 collects issues #56-61 of Marvel’s flagship series for the franchise.

It’s a big week for releases, with one novel and several comics coming in. First up, on Tuesday, March 5, is E.K. Johnston’s Queen’s Shadow, a Pdame YA novel that bridges The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones and has been drawing a lot of praise from the early reviewers.
Then on Wednesday, March 6, head to the comic shops for even more Padme with Age of Republic: Padme Amidala. If that’s not quite your thing, there’s also Star Wars #62, Darth Vader: Dark Visions #1, and for the all-ages crows, IDW’s graphic novel adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back. Marvel, not to be outdone, has Ewoks reprints.
