Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Star Trek Beyond and The Killing Joke starts with their thoughts on Star Trek Beyond, then they talk about the Justice League trailer, the Wonder Woman trailer, and Matt Moore joins them to talk about The Killing Joke. Good episode.

Awards Chatter: Bob Odenkirk interview is top notch and a must listen for Better Call Saul or Breaking Bad fans. Bob talks about where he grew up, getting into comedy, his work as a writer, transitioning to acting, and how he wound up on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 82 features Joe and Chris as they talk Star Wars and action figures while listening to both of the Bill and Ted soundtracks. Fun as always but the musical change-up does provide some variety and some musical side road discussions. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Marvel has two new Star Wars releases today.

Star Wars: Darth Vader #24 (of 25)

Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist/Cover Artist: Salvador Larroca
Variant Cover: John Tyler Christopher (action figure variant)

Vader is lost in his inner mindscape, lost in visions of the Force! Is he truly more machine now than man? Or can he fight his way back from the brink?

Details: 32 pages, Rate T, $3.99

Darth Vader Vol. 3 – The Shu-Torun War TPB

Writer: Kieron Gillen
Pencillers: Leinil Francis Yu and Salvador Larroca
Cover Artist: Kaare Andrews

The Dark Lord of the Sith’s unstoppable march continues! The natives of Shu-Torun are revolting, and there’s no way the Empire will stand for that. When Darth Vader is tasked with leading a military assault against the planet, could it be that his rise to glory has begun? But who will follow Vader into war? Would you? Then again, it’s better to fight alongside Vader than against him. That’s a lesson that the ore barons are about to learn. Collecting DARTH VADER #16-19 and ANNUAL #1.

Details: 120 pages, Rated T, $16.99

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 022 covers Star Wars video games as they talk about their favorites and least favorites, from Super Star Wars to The Force Unleashed II.

Blast Points: Episode 31 features guest Ryan Porter. They start off talking a little about Aftermath by Chuck Wendig, then work their way to Life Debt. Lot of good observations and some fun discussion, but it’s only a half hour long. I could have definitely listened to them for a full hour. Great show regardless.

Blast Points: Episode 32 features Dunc from Club Jade. They talk about the early days of online fandom, Dunc talks about how she got into the books, fanfic and zines, and they talk about Star Wars fandom in general. It’s a fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
