Halloween week brings one new book, one paperback reprint, and two comics. Out on Tuesday, October 30 is Women of the Galaxy by Amy Ratcliffe and many, many artists. (You can preview some of the art here, here and here.) It’s also a chance for fans to pick up the paperback of Daniel José Older’s Last Shot, the Han and Lando novel that first came out ahead of Solo in the spring.
This week brings one new book, two comics, and a hardcover collection. Out on Tuesday, October 23 is Pablo Hidalgo’s Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy’s Most Notorious. The hardcover covers three different eras (Old Republic, Empire, and the New Republic) through the notes of a family of police officers.
Out next week we have Amy Ratcliffe’s Women of the Galaxy and the paperback of Daniel José Older’s Last Shot. Check out our book release schedule for more upcoming books.
Wednesday, October 17 brings two comics and a Legends trade collection of some interest. The spooks continue with IDW’s Tales from Vader’s Castle #3, while Marvel has Darth Vader #22. And we’ve got a pretty noteworthy edition of the Legends epic collection – The New Republic volume 4 contains the complete comic adaptations of The Thrawn Trilogy: Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command.
Two brand-new comics are out on Wednesday, October 10. The scares continue with Tales from Darth Vader’s Castle #2, which has two covers. We also see Marvel’s Solo #1, the first of seven issues adapting the film.
The extended gap between movies sees Star Wars publishing reaching back to the prequel era for their most high profile SDCC announcements. Coming from Del Rey we have Master and Apprentice, a Qui-gon and Obi-wan novel from Claudia Gray (Bloodline, Princess of Alderaan). And from Disney-Lucasfilm press there’s the long-rumored Padme novel, Queen’s Shadow by E.K. Johnston (Ahsoka).
The Padme cover is by Tara Phillips, who editor Jen Heddle says she “found on Deviant Art.” Both books will be out in early 2019 and up for pre-order soon: Master and Apprentice in February, and Queen’s Shadow in March.
