There was quite a bit of news out of the Lucasfilm publishing panel at New York Comic-Con yesterday! New Star Wars novels, new books for kids, comics, and more. You’ll definitely want to clear some shelf space! Below you’ll find just some highlights of what was revealed, including the cover reveal for Claudia Gray’s and the newly announced Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed.
Christian Blauvelt on his recent books Be More Vader and Be More Yoda: “There’s a lot to learn from villains….I just started a new job so I’m using some of these lessons already.” But at the same time… “[Be More Yoda] is more looking at mindfulness lessons that all of the saga’s heroes can teach us.” Blauvelt added that the lessons in both books are meant to be taken tongue-in-cheek and not always literally. Force choking is never recommended in the workplace.
Amy Ratcliffe on the unique take on character entries for Women of the Galaxy: “The profiles aren’t meant to be encyclopedic, but celebrations of the characters.”

Cover Reveal for Master & Apprentice by Claudia Gray
Announced at the panel, Alphabet Squadron arrives June 2019. Set after Return of the Jedi, Alphabet Squadron follows a unique team of pilots, each flying a different class of starfighter as they struggle to end the war they fought so long for once and for all.
