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.

‘Twilight Company’ Blurb

battlefront-twilight-companyRandom House has posted a blurb for Alexander Freed’s Battlefront: Twilight Company.

A companion novel inspired by the hotly anticipated videogame Star Wars: Battlefront, this action-packed adventure follows a squad of soldiers caught in the trenches of the ultimate galactic war between good and evil.

The bravest soldiers. The toughest warriors. The ultimate survivors.

 
Among the stars and across the vast expanses of space, the Galactic Civil War rages. On the battlefields of multiple worlds in the Mid Rim, legions of ruthless stormtroopers—bent on crushing resistance to the Empire wherever it arises—are waging close and brutal combat against an armada of freedom fighters. In the streets and alleys of ravaged cities, the front-line forces of the Rebel Alliance are taking the fight to the enemy, pushing deeper into Imperial territory and grappling with the savage flesh-and-blood realities of war on the ground.

Leading the charge are the soldiers—men and women, human and nonhuman—of the sixty-first mobile infantry, better known as Twilight Company. Hard-bitten, war-weary, and ferociously loyal to one another, the members of this renegade outfit doggedly survive where others perish, and defiance is their most powerful weapon against the deadliest odds. When orders come down for the Rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation—and gives the Alliance’s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence.

Orders or not, alone and outgunned but unbowed, Twilight Company locks, loads, and prepares to make its boldest maneuver—trading down-and-dirty battle in the trenches for a game-changing strike at the ultimate target: the very heart of the Empire’s military machine.

Battlefront: Twilight Company will be out November 3 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

janine-spendloveAuthor Janine Spendlove is coming to the galaxy far, far away as she’s set to write the tie-in short story for Alexander Freed’s Battlefront: Twilight Company. The short story will be appearing in Star Wars Insider #161 which will be out in October. I have heard Janine speak on a couple podcasts before and she’s a huge Star Wars fan, so I’m looking forward to see what she can do.
