I recently discovered Axe Cop which is one of the funniest comics I have ever read. They are written by Malachai Nicolle (who started writing them when he was 5) and drawn by Ethan Nicolle, his older brother. There’s endless humor to be found in them, and Ask Axe Cop #28 & 29 are some real gems.

Don’t miss out on the special charity auction for the original manuscript for the Young Jedi Knights: Darkest Knight signed by authors Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta. All proceeds will be going to the Pearl Foundation. The auction ends on December 1st. Winners will receive the original annotated production manuscript of Young Jedi Knights: The Darkest Knight which includes editorial and production marks throughout, hand written by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta.
These are the last-round polishes and approvals, different word choices, alterations for continuity. As a bonus, this package also includes a signed first-edition copy of the original publication — these books are themselves very hard to find and regularly sell for more than $100 on eBay. This is unique and will never be offered again. Both manuscript and the book are autographed by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, and can be personalized to the winner, upon request.

Del Rey has posted micro excerpt #2 for Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber.
“Darth Sidious,” Damask said, gesturing to the empty seat beside him. “Will you join me?”
Palpatine flicked his eyes toward the air-taxi’s cockpit, but Damask gave him a reassuring nod.
“I’ve rendered the surveillance equipment inoperative,” the Muun said, “so that we may speak freely. As equals.”
“Of course.” Without hesitating, Darth Sidious slipped inside next to the Muun, his expression revealing just the right tincture of pleasant surprise. “It’s always good to see you under any circumstances.”

Here’s this week’s Podcasts in Review.
Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode 1 is a long one, almost two hours, but hosts Tricia Barr and Teresa Delgado do a good job of keeping it interesting. In their debut episode, they cover a lot of ground, introductions, an overview of their intended focus for the podcast, their opinions on fandom and women, a great interview with Star Wars: The Clone Wars voice actress Catherine Taber, and so much more. I think my highlight of the episode, aside from the interview with Cat Taber, was Tricia and Teresa’s discussion segment on Boba Fett. Tricia isn’t a big fan of Fett but Teresa is, and it was fun to hear their opinions on one of my favorite Star Wars characters.
Fictional Frontiers: Episode 261 (listed as Episode #1 on Shotglass Digital) includes an interview with Kenobi author John Jackson Miller. Fiction Frontiers’ host, Sohaib, is one of the best interviewers out there, so if you like listening to interviews, you’ll want to check this one out. As always, he does a nice job talking with John, covering his book, and touching on his upcoming projects.
Episode 265 has a nice interview with Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge author Martha Wells. Sohaib covers some of the choices Martha made in the direction of the book, as well as her view on Leia, Han, and the Alderaanian pirates. The interview is spoiler free, so be sure to check it out.
