A monthly podcast where we discuss and review all of the latest Star Wars releases from Dark Horse Comics and Del Rey Books. Expect fun and knowledgeable guests from the fan community and interviews with official Star Wars writers! Hosted by Teresa Delgado and Aaron Goins.
It’s the one year anniversary of our podcast, and we want to celebrate! For our celebration we are not only giving away free books (learn more here) but we also have two new episodes of Bookworms this week.
Last episode we reviewed the comic digest Ewoks: Shadows of Endor. This episode we interview the writer/artist of the comic, Zack Giallongo.
Are Ewoks cool again? We talk about why Ewoks aren’t just for kids anymore.
Originals or Special Editions? It may surprise you what we all picked.
Is magic the same as the Force in the Star Wars universe? Hear what Zack had to say.
Zack gives us some behind the scenes info on different aspects of the comic and a teaser for the future.
Of course we had to ask him what his hopes for the Sequel Trilogy are.
Did we really spend the last 10 minutes talking about Tiny Death Star!?
Reviews this episode: Ewoks – Shadows of Endor (comic digest)
Death Star Owner’s Technical Manual (reference guide)
Another episode? So soon? That’s right, it’s still January and we already have two episodes on the books. Since we didn’t do any reviews in last week’s episode we decided to do another episode right away to get back on schedule. Plus Teresa just couldn’t wait any longer to review this Ewoks comic.
We welcome collector extraordinaire, podcaster, and official Star Wars artist Dan Curto as our guest
Dan talks about his personal fandom, collecting, and classic Star Wars EU
E-E-E-E-Ewoks. We talk about everything from the Ewoks animated series to the latest comic release
Teresa complains about the lack of good Ewok plushies
Aaron reveals the secret to getting the good Star Wars toys at Target
We talk about our favorite Death Star collectibles
Finally we discuss and review the Death Star Owner’s Technical Manual
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.
