Dark Horse Comics has printed a lot of Star Wars comics over the years. They’ve done regular issues, issues with heavy carded stock covers, omnibuses, trade paperbacks, hardcover omnibuses, hardcover trade paperbacks and large format hardcovers. However, I don’t think any of them have been as fancy as The Star Wars Deluxe HC Edition. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:A-Force, Walking Dead, Star Wars Battle Pod & The Marvel Experience” covers a lot of stuff. First up, the announcement of an all female Avengers team called A-Force, discussion on whether John Diggle is John Stewart aka Green Lantern on Arrow, Teen Titan news and rumors and finally some coverage of The Marvel Experience (an interactive Marvel exhibit/roleplay). They also talk about The Walking Dead and Star Wars Battle Pod and throughout the episode they are joined by Pat Loika, Tony Kim, and Lauren Galloway.

Sci-Fi Psychology, Geeky Answers & Blood Elf Selfies” …goes into a pretty heavy discussion on Star Trek vs. Star Wars psychology. In this case they’re pulling a lot of stuff from an article on Yahoo News which in turn is based off a panel that was at Wondercon 2013. They give the panel and the panelists a bit of a rough time. Having heard Dr. Andrea Letamendi talk more in depth about the panel, and in general the psychology of different aspects of fandom, it’s actually a lot better than what they make it out to be. Aside from that, this episode dives into some planned Arrow books (though I wish they would have mentioned the authors involved), some comments Joss Whedon made about taking a break after Avengers: Age of Ultron, and some news on Supergirl and more.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Vision of Hope” episode includes guest Joe Tovano as they talk a little about his Padme article before heading into their thoughts on the show. They talk about Ezra’s training at the beginning of the episode and his acting on instinct, Senator Trayvis and the trap, the significance of Ezra trying to reveal his real name to Zare, Chopper taking out another droid and the success of Kanan and Ezra versus Obi-Wan and Anakin. Capping off the episode is their five questions for Joe. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
