A Shattered Legacy – SWBW #36

bookworms Banner

In this episode of Star Wars Bookworms we talk mostly comics and answer some listener emails. Bria from Tosche Station joins us and brings some impressive comic book knowledge to the discussion. She’s really cool.

  • Splinter of the Mind’s Eye is our book club book for Jan/Feb. Join us over at Goodreads and get in on the conversation.
  • Marvel Star Wars #1 has come out and we give our thoughts on the first issue.
  • We had emails from Lenie, Ben, and David asking about double-bladed lightsabers, continuing stories for The Clone Wars characters, and what themes from Legends we want to be left behind. Teresa was not happy to learn about the Endor Holocaust.
  • Aaron posed a question about Legends characters being used in the new canon and how much of their backstory should stay intact.
  • We review the final Legacy comics, Legacy Volume 4 – Empire of One. Bria is a big fan.
  • We also review the final Brian Wood Star Wars comics, Star Wars Volume 4: A Shattered Hope.
