Straight up kudos to Entertainment Weekly and their site EW.com for grabbing an exclusive first look at Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 4 and shedding some light on the character Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff will be voicing in the upcoming season.

While it seems we still don’t know the name of the character, She is clearly a Mando who is working with Ashoka Tano’s seperatist friend Lux. Head on over to EW.com and watch the exclusive video trailer. Then feel free to come on back and post your thoughts on what sort of mess Ashoka has gotten herself into this time.

Matthew Stover’s Caine’s Law Cover and Blurb!

Matthew Stover’s Caine’s Law has a new cover and blurb available on the Amazon website.  Caine’s Law will be the fourth book in the Acts of Caine. Without further ado, the Caine’s Law blurb:

SOME LAWS YOU BREAK. SOME BREAK YOU.
AND THEN THERE’S CAINE’S LAW.

From the moment Caine first appeared in the pages of Heroes Die, two things were clear. First, that Matthew Stover was one of the most gifted fantasy writers of his generation. And second, that Caine was a hero whose peers go by such names as Conan and Elric. Like them, Caine was something new: a civilized man who embraced savagery, an actor whose life was a lie, a force of destruction so potent that even gods thought twice about crossing him. Now Stover brings back his greatest creation for his most stunning performance yet.

Caine is washed up and hung out to dry, a crippled husk kept isolated and restrained by the studio that exploited him. Now they have dragged him back for one last deal. But Caine has other plans. Those plans take him back to Overworld, the alternate reality where gods are real and magic is the ultimate weapon. There, in a violent odyssey through time and space, Caine will face the demons of his past, find true love, and just possibly destroy the universe.

Hey, it’s a crappy job, but somebody’s got to do it.

According to Amazon, Caine’s Law will be released on April 3, 2012 while The Random House Spring 2012 Catalog puts Caine’s Law release date on February 2, 2012.  Roqoo Depot contacted Del Rey for an official date, but alas, they’re at Comic-Con!

UPDATE: 

Del Rey Editor Erich Schoeneweiss says: “The on sale date was indeed changed to April 3, 2012.”   Be sure to pick up your copy of Caine’s Law then!

Today Jedi – The Dark Side #3 hits comic stores. Written by Scott Allie, illustrated by Mahmud Asrar, colored by Paul Mounts, and cover art by Stéphane Roux.

On Telos IV, a priestess has been assassinated, and the planet is on the verge of civil war. Only Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Xanatos can protect the planet’s leader-who just happens to be Xanatos’s father-and stop the insurgents. But Xanatos is succumbing to his own long-buried resentments and may soon be more of a hindrance than a help.

Twenty years before his fateful meeting with Anakin Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn had his first encounter with the dark side . . .
