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!?
Star Wars Reads Day was this past Saturday and I attended the event in Lancaster, PA. The event was a ton of fun and I would recommend it to all Star Wars fans, especially if you have kids. One of the highlights was the attendance of Star Wars author Joe Schreiber. He is the author of the novels Death Troopers and Red Harvest, but the novel I was excited to hear about was his upcoming Maul: Lockdown.
As Schreiber began to do a reading from the book I decided to turn on my phone’s voice recorder to see if I could catch some good audio for the show. I’m glad I did. The reading from Lockdown ended up being a battle between Darth Maul and a Yuuzhan Vong! Schreiber also had some very interesting things to say about the story and development of the book.
In this first of hopefully three August episodes we had the pleasure of interviewing The Clone Wars comic writer Justin Aclin. Justin was the writer for the two recent The Clone Wars comic digests Defenders of the Lost Temple and The Smuggler’s Code.
Before we release our regular May episode we are happy to bring you a special interview episode. We were thrilled to be able to interview prolific Star Wars writer John Jackson Miller! He is the writer of various Star Wars books and comics including Knights of the Old Republic, Lost Tribe of the Sith, Knight Errant, and the upcoming novel Kenobi.
At the top of the interview we discussed his personal Star Wars fandom and how it lead to a career in comics. He also shared his thoughts on the upcoming Rebels animated series and why he is excited for it. Other subjects that came up in the conversation were new and old Star Trek and Doctor Who.
Star Wars Bookworms is back with its 2nd episode! We had so much fun in this episode that we went a lot longer than expected. So we have broken the March episode into 2 parts. In this first part we are joined by Club Jade blogger and comic reviewer for Big Shiny Robot, James Floyd (@jamesjawa).
