Vader Down TPB

Two of the biggest titles in comics collide in the first crossover of the new Marvel age of STAR WARS! When Darth Vader accidentally finds himself facing off against the rebel fleet on his own, he is sent crashing onto a nearby planet. Will the rebels seize this opportunity to put an end to one of their greatest enemies – or will they be made to feel the full power of the dark side? The Sith Lord may be down, but he isn’t out! All your favorites are here, old and new, good and evil: Luke! Vader! Leia! Aphra! Han! Threepio, Artoo, Triple-Zero and BT-1! And in a hair-raising battle of the Wookiees, Chewbacca versus Black Krrsantan! ROOOARRGH UR ROO! Collecting STAR WARS: VADER DOWN, STAR WARS (2015) #13-14 and DARTH VADER #13-15.

Details: 136 pages, Rated T, $19.99

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Brecker & Meyer is doing a special four book Star Wars set of The Jedi Path, Book of Sith, The Bounty Hunter Code and Imperial Handbook. No word yet on a release date, but definitely a nice way to get them all if you haven’t picked them up yet.
  • As we countdown to the next Star Wars novel, Bloodline, Star Wars Insider will be prepping readers with a short tie-in story called “Scorched.” Written by Delilah S. Dawson, “Scorched” will be appearing in Star Wars Insider #165 (due out on April 27). It stars Greer Sonnel, “a rising star preparing to take part in The Gauntlet, a challenging and dangerous starfighter race. Greer Sonnel is a key character – and close ally of Senator Leia Organa – who will be featured in Claudia Gray’s upcoming STAR WARS: BLOODLINE. SCORCHED takes place before the events of the novel and provides insight into Greer’s background and character.” The short story will also include artwork by Joe Corroney.
  • Entertainment Weekly has an excerpt from Chuck Wendig‘s next Star Wars novel Aftermath: Life Debt.
  • Plus Del Rey now has even more ways to win a free copy of Bloodline or a free Bloodline poster.
  • RebelScum is reporting that Star Wars actor Felix Silla has a book out called The World of Felix Silla. It’s an 88 page softcover and available directly from him via his Facebook page.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode #19 is their Star Wars Rebels season two finale roundtable episode. Jamie and Kate are joined by friends Gary, Matt and Rod as they discuss the episode. With four Irish guys and just one girl, it’s not the most diverse roundtable, but it’s okay. I think the regular episodes have a lot better dynamic between just Jamie and Kate. The roundtable isn’t a bad idea, but it might benefit from a different selection of guests.

Blast Points: Episode 12 covers some Episode VIII rumor/leaks/news like Luke being in a casino, they talk about Donnie Yen’s Instagram account, Rogue One speculation, Star Wars Rebels “Mystery at Chopper Base” thoughts, Gary Whitta writing more Star Wars Rebels episodes, who’s Rey, her role/destiny and the importance of Kenobi, and a deep dive into Rey’s vision as they analyze the audio with a complete breakdown of both left, center, front right, etc audio channels. Very interesting as you can pick up a lot of stuff you wouldn’t ordinarily catch.

Blast Points: Episode 15 is a special mini-episode devoted to the Rogue One trailer as they talk about Mon Mothma, the droid character, the lack of Mads, the tone and more as they go through it scene-by-scene. Funny episode with some good observations. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
