The Essential Readers Companion – SWBTF #40


Pablo Hidalgo’s The Essential Reader’s Companion, on the next Star Wars Beyond the Films, YOUR Star Wars discussion podcast! YOUR ticket to the EU!

This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler, and The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman sit down to discuss Pablo Hidalgo’s The Essential Reader’s Companion. Strap in and tighten the crash webbing, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on a trip to a galaxy far, far away!

This week’s episode They cover some of the many great illustrations found in this companion.  They jump in and set the stage for the Essential Guide lines, let you know what came before and so forth. There are mentions of things we’d not heard of before; like The Vergere Companion- Denning’s 27 page justification for Vergere’s Sithliness. They also talk about using the Companion as a resource for when you jump into an era you aren’t as familiar with as a brush up. They also discuss things like Jacen’s fate, and the alternate endings to a couple series, Reading order, Canon and Continuity as presented in the book, and much, much more.

Here is a small taste of what you’ll find inside the Essential Reader’s Companion:

Jeff Carlisle
Joe Corroney
Brian Rood (character galleries)

Chris Scalf
Darren TanChris Trevas

Plenty more illustrations for those who love dynamic imagery set in the Star Wars universe, but the hosts wanted you to get a feel for the flavor of each artist.

Once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much Essential goodness in their ONE hour, but don’t worry, give it ago; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on the EU while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So once again, sit back, hang on, enjoy the show and may the Force be with you!
