Have you been wondering when we were going to review some Star Wars comics again? Today is your day, with not one, but two comic reviews in this episode of Star Wars Bookworms!

  • Harry Potter Bookworms? We decided to test the April Fools waters with a little joke. But is a Harry Potter podcast completely out of the question for us?
  • More Ahsoka please. We talk about the announcement of a new Ahsoka Tano novel coming from Disney Press.
  • Emails. We reply to emails and discuss This is Madness, the origin of our intro, and much more. Keep the emails coming!
  • Not just a books show. We discuss and review two comic volumes, Star Wars Volume 1: Skywalker Strikes and Kanan Volume 1: The Last Padawan.

Star Wars Celebration is almost here and we have so much to talk about. Sadly Teresa wasn’t able to join in for this episode, but we got a great guest host in Kay from Fangirl Blog and the Hyperspace Theories podcast.

  • We read listener emails which leads to conversations about Star Wars Weekends, Rogue One, and the Legends universe.
  • Dark Disciple now has a full synopsis and we talk about our excitement level for it. Aaron is more excited than Kay because he is a Quinlan Vos fanboy.
  • We discuss our thoughts on Marvel’s Princess Leia #1.
  • September is going to be busy. We walk through all the titles announced for Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and speculate more than we probably should.
