After forming the Shadow Collective — a criminal organization composed of the Hutts, Black Sun, Mandalorians and fearsome Nightbrothers — Maul wages war against Darth Sidious and his generals, Count Dooku and General Grievous! Adapted from unproduced teleplays for Season Six of The Clone Wars TV series, this is the final chapter planned for Darth Maul’s saga.

A young scavenger named Rey, a deserting stormtrooper named Finn, an ace pilot named Poe and a dark apprentice named Kylo Ren — their lives are about to collide as the awakening begins. Writer Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: Aftermath) and artists Luke Ross (HERCULES) and Marc Laming (PLANET HULK) take us back into the saga of a lifetime! Collecting STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS ADAPTATION #1-6.

Details: 144 pages, Rated T, $19.99

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. For those looking for John Jackson Miller interviews, you’re in luck, as they’re are plenty (though more to come).

Coffee with Kenobi: Book Chat with John Jackson Miller covers his new Star Wars novel A New Dawn which stars two of the main characters from the upcoming television series Star Wars Rebels. They cover the outreach of the book, going after old and new fans alike, the timing of the project, where Kanan and Hera are at this point in their lives, and more. As always, the hosts put together a great interview with excellent questions and good production quality.

Disney Vault Talk: The Saludos Amigos episode covers a Disney movie I’ve never seen. It’s a collection of shorts woven with some documentary footage to create a highlight piece for South America during a time when the US was vying for allies in WWII. As usual, Teresa shares some fun facts and trivia that sheds new light on the films and the company that made them. Together, Steve and Teresa give a nice feel for what the film is like and what it accomplished. For someone like me who isn’t very well versed in the Disneyverse, they do a great job of offering insight and provoking interest. If you like Disney or are just interested in the subject, be sure to give this one a try.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #10 features special guest Steve Glosson, which means you’re in for a treat. They start out with listener feedback and a very nice discussion on cosplay and fandom. They get into their recommended episode picks for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Steve talks about how his Star Wars fandom began, what he feels is the most underrated thing in Star Wars (Hayden Christensen), they cover some Star Wars Episode VII news, and the character discussion this month is Chewbacca which leads to lots of fun conversation. A great episode all around.
