  • According to comicbook.com, Princess Leia #1 has sold over 200,000 copies in pre-orders and there is still another month before it comes out. And if you follow that link, toward the bottom you’ll find an interview with the Star Wars Marvel editor Jordan D. White who teases the series that will be following Leia.

The series after Leia, which I can’t talk about at all, has a very distinct feel, and a different tone from the other books.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 84 goes over all the fun ALS Star Wars videos, they talk about the Star Wars fan film awards, the cover the Green Cross droid renovation, and go through all the con and mission reports for the 501st garrisons. One report that caught my attention and was pretty neat to hear about was a troop they did to an even for the blind. It was interesting to hear about the kids’ reactions to the 501st members.

Bombad Radio: September Free-For-All episode features James and special guests Scott Murray (Assembly of Geeks) and David Gremillion (Get Your Geek On). As always in the free-for-alls, they cover a lot of topics, this one focusing on all things Star Wars. They talk about the possibilities for Star Wars rides and attractions at Disney theme parks, merchandise options, and much more. They also dig in a little into Star Wars Rebels and Jake Lloyd.

Episode 165 is a live report from Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Jeremiah runs down all the people he’s talked to. Kind of a random and inconsequential episode, so you can skip this one if you like.

Episode 166 features their audio from the Sam Witwer panel at Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Sam talks about Being Human, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, and lots of Star Wars topics. He dives into Maul, out geeking Dave Filoni, the selfish side of the dark side, and the proper viewing order for Star Wars. The panel was moderated by Bryan Young and the audio turned out pretty good. You can hear Master Bruce there in the beginning but he naps through most of the panel so it’s interruption free (for those who don’t know, Master Bruce is Jeremiah’s baby boy who is aptly named Bruce). Best of all, Sam tells lots of fun stories, so you won’t want to miss out on this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
