In this episode of Star Wars Bookworms we talk mostly comics and answer some listener emails. Bria from Tosche Station joins us and brings some impressive comic book knowledge to the discussion. She’s really cool.
Marvel Star Wars #1 has come out and we give our thoughts on the first issue.
We had emails from Lenie, Ben, and David asking about double-bladed lightsabers, continuing stories for The Clone Wars characters, and what themes from Legends we want to be left behind. Teresa was not happy to learn about the Endor Holocaust.
Aaron posed a question about Legends characters being used in the new canon and how much of their backstory should stay intact.
We review the final Legacy comics, Legacy Volume 4 – Empire of One. Bria is a big fan.
We also review the final Brian Wood Star Wars comics, Star Wars Volume 4: A Shattered Hope.
We are totally spoiling you guys. Last episode we had Vanessa Marshall, the voice of Hera Syndulla, to help us review a book. This episode we bring you an interview with one of the executive producers from Season 1 of Star Wars Rebels, Greg Weisman!
Greg talked to us about his childhood memories of Star Wars, his time working on Rebels, and the upcoming Kanan comics. We also discussed other projects he’s worked on like Young Justice, Gargoyles, and his planned 9-novel series.
The first two books in the series have already been released and you should definitely check them out. Click the links below to find them on Amazon.
