Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Cloud City Casino: Episode 016 features Rich and Sarah from Skywalking Through Neverland as they talk about Disney Infinity 3.0. They talk about the characters, the game mechanics, unlocking features, gameplay, and even a little bit about Force Friday. Fun episode.

Comic Book Noob: Aquaman episode covers why Aquaman has such a bad reputation, and why it’s not deserved. The talk about his powers, his responsibilities, and why the character should be respected, plus their comic recommendations. As someone who is not very familiar with character, this was a great episode and it helped me get a better understanding on who Aquaman really is.

Comics With Kenobi: Issue #7 reviews Lando #4 and a has a great interview with Marvel Star Wars assistant editor Heather Antos. Worth checking out for the interview alone as Heather provides a neat look behind the scenes. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

chaos-unleashedFor October, our book of the month is Chaos Unleashed by Drew Karpyshyn. This is the epic finale to The Chaos Born trilogy as the three chosen heroes must unite with the talismans of the old world to stop the onslaught of Daemron and his chaos army.

Having read the first two books in this character driven fantasy series, this one is a must buy.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • StarWars.com has a bunch of book info on upcoming titles you can check out here including new cover art and summaries. While the Art of and the Visual Guide are new news, Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka is. I really enjoyed his Han Solo novel Smuggler’s Run, so I’ll definitely be getting this one.


A companion piece to the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens character novels, Star Wars: Before the Awakening is an anthology book that focuses on the lives of Rey, Finn, and Poe before the events of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

  • Nerdist has two animated videos, one of Jason Fry’s The Weapon of a Jedi and one of Greg Rucka’s Smuggler’s Run. They’re pretty cool looking, but might contain spoilers if you haven’t read the books yet.
  • Aside from Star Wars, pre-orders are up for the Warcraft movie prequel novel by Christie Golden.
