Right before we head off to DragonCon we bring you an extra long, extra special episode featuring discussions of Adam Bray’s recent books and a comic review with Mark Newbold (Jedi News UK, Radio 1138).
Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos in love? Aaron and Teresa speculate based on the new synopsis for the upcoming Ventress novel.
Keep on reading. We have selected the next book for our Goodreads book club and it’s the new release A New Dawn. Go pick up the book (release date Sept 2nd) and get into the discussion.
Following up our Adam Bray interview last episode, we really get into his books this episode. We take both What Makes a Monster and Rebels: The Visual Guide and go through them pointing out all of our favorite things. Of course this leads to much discussion and speculation about the upcoming TV series.
Finally Mark Newbold joins us again to discuss and review the latest Darth Vader comic, Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows.
Every fan of Star Wars novels most likely has a list of books they have always wanted to see. For me the book on the top of that list was a novel featuring my favorite Expanded Universe character, Quinlan Vos. With Del Rey’s recent announcement of a novel featuring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos, it seems like I got my wish. In Summer of 2015 we will be getting a novel based on unused scripts from The Clone Wars animated series.
I remember when Dave Filoni posted his sketches of scenes from the unused scripts. I was happy to see images of Vos, but extremely sad at the idea I would never get to see those stories on screen. With the recent release of the Son of Dathomir comics I knew there was a chance I would see these other stories in comic form someday, but I never expected a novel. To me a novel is an even better option because it will allow us to really get into the character’s heads.
So you may wonder why I am so excited for a novel featuring a character who only had a significant role in one episode of The Clone Wars. That may be all he is to fans who have only seen the animated series, but to those of us who have been following the comics, he is so much more.
