Ultimate Lego Star Wars (2017) – Chris Malloy, and Andrew Becraft

Lego, Star Wars, much like chocolate and peanut butter, some things just belong together. Lego has become inextricably tied to everyone’s childhood, and some of us leave it behind when we step towards that thing called adulthood, others will always have a love for it, and sometimes a massive collection to go with it. When…

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) – George Lucas

  Remember, right back before the Phantom Menace came out, when anticipation was reaching a fever pitch? I miss that. Sure we had the wonderful build up to The Force Awakens, but the gap between films was no where near as long as it had been for those of us who had been invested in…

Star Wars: Lords of the Sith (2015) – Paul S. Kemp

  The new Star Wars canon has turned on some stellar stuff (Lost Stars) and some less than entertaining stuff (Aftermath), but Paul S. Kemp’s action-packed novel falls very comfortably in the stellar category, bringing us a very satisfying tale, that ties a number of Star Wars properties together through references and characters. Taking place…

Star Wars: Tarkin (2014) – James Luceno

  More adventures in the newly minted expanded canon universe of Star Wars (I’m still upset over the loss of some of the other EU moments and characters, but can’t change that now…). This time, we’re taking a look at the villains, well a few of them anyway, as we get a look at Wilhuff Tarkin before…

Star Wars: Aftermath (2015) – Chuck Wendig

  The Journey to The Force Awakens continues… we’ve had the first issue of the comic, and now comes the new novel, set in the newly established timeline, which sadly jettisoned some of the great stories that created the Expanded Universe that have been in place for over two decades. Aftermath picks up a few…

Issues Vol. 4

It’s time for that weekly round-up from West End Comics, where Kirk stalwartly mans his post, a bastion of pop culture filled with fantastic images, colours, and inks. Let’s jump right into it this week’s pull list shall we? Low – Vol. 1 Delirium of Hope. Collecting the first 6 issues of this series written…

Issues Vol. 2

This week when I popped into see Kirk  at West End Comics, I walked out with some highly enjoyable reads, two of which he’d been recommending for a few months… Archie Vs. Predator Issue 02 – Now this is an AvP that I can get behind! Featuring a script by Alex de Campi, pencils by…
