Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, along comes Star Wars Legacy of the Force :Tempest. This is the third in the series and to say the least, the plot has thickened…alot. Jacen Solo is real bad ass in this one and there is no mistaking his walk on the dark side now. Cover to cover this book was an awesome read full of twists and plot complications that commanded me (no Jedi mind trick required) to keep turning the page.

Star Wars: Legacy Volume 1–Broken

The future of Star Wars is here in an all-new adventure set more than a century after Return of the Jedi and the New Jedi Order! The Jedi Temple is attacked, an Emperor is betrayed, and the Sith are born anew! A lot can happen in a hundred years, but that’s just the beginning of the story!

I don’t know where to begin on this I’ve read about 5 Legacy issues so far and it is so unlike any Star Wars series i’ve ever encountered it’s totally unreal (in a good way). I’ll be sure to blog about it more as issues come out. If you’re behind just click on the image and get a copy for yourself

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Vol. 1–Commencement Trade paperback

Thousands of years before Luke Skywalker would destroy the Death Star in that fateful battle above Yavin 4, one lone Padawan would become a fugitive hunted by his own Masters, charged with murdering every one of his fellow Jedi-in-training!

This is the trade paperback compiliation of this groundbreaking downright awesome comic book series. I’ve rushed every month to my local comic book seller to get a copy of each issue and it’s always a sellout. So now instead of having to wait – you can just go and get the first 6 issues in one volume (just click the image if you want to get your own).

If this isn’t the comic book of the year i don’t know what is.

JPod by: Douglas Coupland December 5, 2006

Sometimes I stray from the SciFi realm, but just a bit. JPod was such an excursion.

It’s typical Coupland though a bit more rambling and useless pages than I care for. The story is more about the people and their messed up lives than the video game culture they work in (which is obviously meant to be EA – Electronic Arts). Though the backdrop of BoardX (the game they are working on) turning into SpriteQuest is the key thing that keeps this meanding monstrosity together.

It’s a decent and engaging read when all is said and done, but certainly not one of Coupland’s best works
