Book Review: ‘Star Wars: Kenobi’

Title: Star Wars: Kenobi
Author: John Jackson Miller
Release Date: August 27th, 2013

Warning: This review may contain minor spoilers.

How excited were you for this book? I mean really. I remember when this book was first announced. It was last October at New York Comic Con. Believe it or not the book wasn’t announced to much fanfare. Not because fans weren’t excited for it, but because there were hardly any fans there to hear the announcement. The Star Wars Books panel was being held in the lower level of the convention center in an open area. There was an awesome panel of Star Wars authors including Tim Zahn, Jason Fry, Pablo Hidalgo, and Dan Wallace but there just weren’t many fans there. There were maybe 100 people there for the panel but most were either leftovers from the previous panel or waiting for the next one. If I had to guess I would say that approximately 20 fans were actually there to see the Star Wars Books panel. To make matters worse the area was so noisy you could hardly hear the authors as they spoke.

Lost Tribe of Smugglers – SWBW #8

Reviews this episode:
The Clone Wars: The Smuggler’s Code (comic digest)
Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral (comic volume)

In this July episode our hosts welcome guest Adam Farmer. Unlike other guests they have had in the past, Adam is not a Star Wars blogger or podcast host. He is a fan of the show and a casual Star Wars fan who is somewhat new to the Star Wars Expanded Universe. He brought a nice fresh perspective.

At the top of the show Aaron, Teresa, and Adam talked about the lack of SWEU news coming out of San Diego Comic Con and how they wished they were at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Aaron and Teresa also talked about how they were excited to attend Dragon Con in August. The conversation also drifted into Star Wars Episode VII casting rumors which of course led to a little bit of fan casting.
