  • Depending on how deep your pockets are, you can get this one of kind Star Wars Topps card colored by Star Wars artist Jerry Vanderstelt.
  • Star Wars artist Chris Trevas shared some cool stuff on Facebook. First off, he teased a new project he’s working on (Transformers?) and some upcoming Star Wars projects.

Chris Trevas: “Starting work on a non-Star Wars project today. What?! I think it’s been around three years since I worked on something outside that galaxy. I’m having fun painting robots from another franchise…Don’t worry. I already have another Star Wars book that will be starting fairly soon plus a few other SW projects.”

FANgirl Interview with Jeff Grubb

FANgirl Blog
posted an interview with Scourge author Jeff Grubb. It covers Mander, Reena, Angela, and of course, Hutts.

I found the Hutt characters in Scourge to be interesting individuals, while retaining a sense of “Huttness.” Are you particularly fond of Hutts? Do you have a favorite Hutt?

Jeff Grubb: I am a fan of Hutts (and most of the alien species of Star Wars).  I wanted to remain true to the “brand” of Hutts, but also show variety among them, and to show Hutts struggling against their own legend (Mika, for example). Of the Hutts in the book, I would say I like Parella the best – if only because he seeks out new experiences, but never really learns from them.

Star Wars: Scourge hits stores today. We interviewed Jeff back in September last year without really knowing what to expect in the novel. So after reading and enjoying Scourge, we decided to get back in touch with Jeff to ask a few more questions. The interview covers how he ended up being his own source material at times, insight into Mander and Eddey’s characters, how the Pantorans came into play, and much more. There are some mild spoilers, so tread carefully. Continue Reading Roqoo Depot Interview with Jeff Grubb…

It’s going to be a long wait for the next Star Wars book, and Scourge doesn’t cover the usual ground we’re used to seeing in a Star Wars novel. Is it worth checking out? The short answer is: YES. For the long answer, check out our full review here with just mild spoilers.

With Jeff Grubb’s book debuting next Tuesday, the logical pick for this week’s fifty page Friday is Scourge.  You can read the excerpt here, and you really should give it a try.  I can promise you that Scourge is a blast of a Star Wars book to read.

If you’re still wondering about whether to give Scourge a shot, check out Pete Morrison’s non-spoiler review on LightSaber Rattling.

Roqoo Depot Reader’s Guide to Scourge

Star Wars: Scourge will be out next Tuesday, and one thing that surprised me was just how much of the Expanded Universe showed up in the novel. For a first time Star Wars novelist, Jeff Grubb really showed a comfortable ease with using elements of technology, interesting species, and a wide range of Hutt lore. We here at Roqoo Depot thought it would be fun to create a reader’s guide for fans that would help prep them for reading the book. Want to know what the aliens in the book look like? How about the ships and droids? And no Hutt novel would be complete without some Huttese, so why not brush up on the lingo?

If you’re avoiding all spoilers, you’ll want to stop now. However if you don’t mind knowing what ships, species, planets, and technology show up, then follow below for our Reader’s Guide to Scourge. Continue Reading Roqoo Depot Reader’s Guide to Scourge…
