Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #44 covers their trip to Rhode Island Comic Con as they geek out on who they met and what the con was like. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun and very entertaining to hear them recount their experience with Oppo Rancisis himself. They also share their thoughts on Star Wars Rebels “Wings of the Master” and The Force Awakens international trailer. Great episode of Star Wars fans sharing their fandom.

Children of the Force: Episode #17 covers the anticipation for the release of The Force Awakens, why now might be a good time to stop reading, and getting tickets. Then they stop for some storytime as the host recounts his experience of waiting in line and seeing The Phantom Menace for its release. This is my first time listening to this podcast and I was very impressed. Not only do they have really good audio quality and nice music cues, but it’s done by a father and his daughter and son which presents a neat perspective as they share and geek out on Star Wars together. Very well done and a great episode. I really enjoy the storytime segment as there were some entertaining stories. I highly recommend giving this one a listen. I’ll definitely be seeking out more episodes to listen to.

Comic Book Noob: Jessica Jones & The Purple Man covers the first appearance of Jessica Jones in the comics as Jewel, her being a C-list character, a member of the Avengers, her run-in and relationship with the Purple Man, his origins and evil nature, both of their powers, and what we know about the upcoming show plus reading recommendations. I really enjoyed this episode as I had no knowledge of either character and they both sounded really interesting. If you plan on watching the show when it comes out, and you need find out more about the characters, this is definitely a good episode to check out. Comic Book Noob continues to not disappoint.

Book Review: ‘Smuggler’s Run’ by Greg Rucka

Amidst the half dozen new Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens novels is Greg Rucka’s Smuggler’s Run. Compared to Aftermath, or Lost Stars for that matter, it’s a slim book at just 183 pages. It’s also being marketed at 8 to 12 year olds. But don’t let the age range or the page count fool you, this is a book worth checking out. Greg Rucka writes this story in a voice that’s on par with any adult Star Wars novel, and while it’s a quick read, it’s fun. Click here to read our full review.
