Dragon Con 2014 Sunday and Monday

Welcome back!

unnamed-3

Our third day at Dragon Con began, for Bethany and Riley, with the Sam Witwer panel! Hosted by Bryan Young, this panel was a really fun one with Sam talking about what it was like being Starkiller, Darth Maul, and a zombie extra on The Walking Dead. A true Star Wars fan, he seemed to really enjoy the panel himself, and spoke enthusiastically about Star Wars themes, characters, and behind the scenes experiences.

Mercy Killings – SWBTF #39

Play

Wraith Squadron! Aaron Allston! Wraiths! Star Wars: Mercy Kill! All on the next Star Wars Beyond the Films, YOUR Star Wars discussion podcast! YOUR ticket to the EU!

This week true believers, Fanboys, Fangirls, and respected aliens around the galaxy, The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman, and your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler discuss Aaron Allston’s latest installment of the X-Wing series: Mercy Kill. Strap in and tighten the crash webbing, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on a trip to a galaxy far, far away!

Mark’s new studio is coming along, and Nathan may have to reorganize his shelving situation sooner than he’d first thought.

This week’s episode starts right off focusing on the much anticipated return of the X-Wing series. The hosts explore the marketing of this novel, how they felt the book was marketed, and how it may have been put to better use being marketed as a next generation Wraith Squadron novel instead of as an X-wing novel.The hosts keep this episode on the light side in terms of spoilers, hoping you’ll read it and enjoy the story as much as they have.

They discuss character diversity, a plethora of Wraiths, character growth opportunities; hit, and missed, and more!

Once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much X-Wing 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!
