Reviews this episode: Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin (comic volume)
Legacy: Prisoner of the Floating World (comic volume)
Back to reviews! Our last couple episodes were an interview and discussing Rebels, but now we are back to our old ways and reviewing some comics. Mark Newbold (Jedi News, StarWars.com, Radio 1138) joins us this episode to talk some Star Wars Expanded Universe.
Star Wars fandom has lost one of its favorite authors. We share some stories of our memories of Aaron Allston
We talk to Mark about his favorite movie, character, book, and his hopes for the future of the Expanded Universe
Who really shot first? Aaron makes the case for his unpopular opinion
Another Anakin prophecy? Mark helps us review Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin
Is Ania Solo a better character than Cade Skywalker? Our hosts review Prisoner of the Floating World
Stick around after the credits for an old interview with Aaron Allston that Teresa got at Star Wars Reads Day 2012
This episode is the second part of our one-year anniversary celebration! We invited the guys from the Rebels Report podcast (Pete Morrison and Andy Ury) to talk about the Rebels characters revealed so far and Star Wars Expanded Universe characters they remind us of.
It’s the one year anniversary of our podcast, and we want to celebrate! For our celebration we are not only giving away free books (learn more here) but we also have two new episodes of Bookworms this week.
Last episode we reviewed the comic digest Ewoks: Shadows of Endor. This episode we interview the writer/artist of the comic, Zack Giallongo.
Are Ewoks cool again? We talk about why Ewoks aren’t just for kids anymore.
Originals or Special Editions? It may surprise you what we all picked.
Is magic the same as the Force in the Star Wars universe? Hear what Zack had to say.
Zack gives us some behind the scenes info on different aspects of the comic and a teaser for the future.
Of course we had to ask him what his hopes for the Sequel Trilogy are.
Did we really spend the last 10 minutes talking about Tiny Death Star!?
