X-Wing Omnibus Vol 3 – SWBTF #43

Michael A. Stackpole, Thrawn, Barron Fel, and more, Star Wars: Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron, Volume 3, on the next Star Wars Beyond the Films. YOUR Star Wars discussion podcast! YOUR ticket to the EU!

This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman, and your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler, sit down to discuss the third and final volume of the three volume Star Wars Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron series. Strap in and tighten your crash webbing, Mark’s piloting and likes to turn the internal compensator down to zero! Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip to a galaxy far, far away!

Jumping right in with a few announcments, we have a winner of the Star Wars 2012 Del Rey Convention Exclusive Sampler Contest! Congratulations to lucky winner: Drew Nick.

Nathan’s new Webisode series, From the Star Wars Library has launched.
Mark’s new column on The Star Wars Report: Expanding Story Opportunities.

This episode covers the issues collected in the the Star Wars: Omnibus- X-Wing Rogue Squadron Vol. 3: (Be sure to check out the links for some epic cover art)

It’s no secret that this is the volume of the Omnibus series both host most enjoyed. The rise of Ysanne Isard, Barron Fel’s defection, Sate Pestage’s fall from grace, and an X-Wing comic not collected?! (Relax- it’s just not in THESE Omnibi)

Art and story blow away the tone set in the first two omnibi. There is more dialog in this one issue than any other, allowing for more character development this time around. The guys also discuss payoff, and whether you need to have that payoff to have a satisfactory story? Thinking along the lines of Star Wars: Invasion’s recent “satisfactory ending” the hosts wonder if Fel’s plot will ever be picked back up. They hope so, or at least some editor at Del Rey has it on their wishlist.

With so much going on in the show, it’s difficult, nay impossible, to capture it all in the shownotes. You’ll just have to listen for yourself. You be the judge.

Once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much Rogue Squadron action in their ONE hour, but don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on the EU while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
