Review: Ezra’s Gamble by Ryder Windham (or, The Bossk Show feat. Ezra Bridger)
Ezra’s Gamble by Ryder Windham sees the very first appearance of one of our new characters, Ezra Bridger, from Star Wars: Rebels. As such, I went into the reading of this book thinking it would be a sort of coming-of-age story. One where we see a young(er, for this book takes place just before the video short Property of Ezra Bridger. We even get to see that clip in the book) Ezra get his first taste of danger, which sets him on the path to wanting to be a rebel. Instead, we don’t get that in this book. Which makes sense, I realized much later (I’m a little slow on the uptake, you may gather), because that’s what the TV show is for. With all that in mind, it makes for an odd introduction, so it’s best to not think of it as that. It is, at its heart, an adventure story. Also it has Bossk, the famed bounty hunter from The Empire Strikes Back. So there’s that.

(Could it be? The original Kenner toy enters Story Group Canon!)
Join Johnathan, Berent, Nathan, and Jen as they discuss the episode. Was this episode just “filler” as some panelists suggest? How cool was it to see a toy given its own new canon interpretation? What is up with Sabine’s artwork? All this and more in this episode of Rebels Roundtable.
