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.

Rumor Alert: Is a Maul, Kenobi, and Young Luke Spin-off Movie In The Works?

I doubt this is the case mainly because Disney really seems to be shying way from anything in the prequel era.
