Prequel Publishing News

Star Wars publishing had its panels today at SDCC (I was working my volunteer shift in another room but at least I got to see some hunky actors and Neil Gaiman for my trouble) where they dropped two new books and a comics series from Marvel.

First up is Claudia Gray’s Master And Apprentice, starring Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.  It’s scheduled for February 2019.  Dare we hope for an appearance by Duchess Satine?  Hmm?  Hmm?

Also announced was Queen’s Shadow by E.K. Johnston, which is about how Queen Amidala became Senator Amidala. I’m pretty sure this was the book rumored about recently.  It’s scheduled for March 2019.  Pre-orders for both books should be up by Monday.

Marvel announced a new series Age of the Republic by Jody Houser, which will feature eight comics over four months, each starring a hero and a villain.  The characters featured are Qui-Gon and Darth Maul, Obi-Wan and Jango Fett, Anakin and Count Dooku, and Padmé and General Grievous.
