The Prisoner of Yavin – SWBW #15


Reviews this episode
Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan (comic volume)
Star Wars: In the Shadow of Yavin (comic volume)

It’s November and it’s starting to get cold outside (depending on where you live). Now is the time of year to snuggle up and read a book… or listen to a podcast about books.

In this 15th episode of Star Wars Bookworms we welcome blogger and first time podcast guest Megan. She writes for fansites Fan Girl Blog and Knights’ Archive as well as her own blog Blog Full of Words.

At the top of the show Teresa asks Aaron and Megan about their time at New York Comic Con. Aaron and Megan do their best to make Teresa jealous by mentioning all the cool people they got to meet. You know, they just had dinner with John Jackson Miller. No big deal. The news revealed at the Rebels panel is also discussed.

In response to some listener feedback Aaron and Megan talk about their personal EU fandom and what were the first things they read (Teresa had to briefly drop out but her answer can be heard in the bonus content at the end of the show). Aaron also asked Megan what her hopes are for the future of the Expanded Universe.

Teresa rejoins the show to help review the comic volume Dawn of the Jedi: The Prisoner of Bogan. Are the characters too one-dimentional? Is Shae Koda a stereotypical “strong female”? Is Aaron becoming a shipper? All this and more is discussed.

Next they review the comic volume Star Wars: In the Shadow of Yavin. They talked about the controversies of a possible reboot as well as their opinions of Leia in an X-wing cockpit. Somehow the discussion evolved into a conversation on the overuse of Boba Fett and if Darth Maul is becoming the new Boba Fett.

Was Luke out of character? Are space battles in comics boring? Why is Chewbacca always so awesome? Listen in to hear what our hosts have to say about the first volume of this popular comic series.

Also stick around after the credits for some bonus content where Teresa talks about her first EU book and Aaron and Megan discuss some things in the EU they believe are underrated.
