If you like Mandalorians, then this week was made for you. We’ve got one Expanded Universe release and a new episode of The Clone Wars, and both feature the popular warrior culture.
Blood Ties Volume 2 – Boba Fett is Dead from Dark Horse Comics releases on Wednesday. Collecting the second arc of the Fett focused comic series, Boba Fett is Dead follows Connor Freeman, the son of one of Jango Fett’s clones, as he gets wrapped up in the intrigue surrounding the supposed death of Boba Fett. The arc is written by Tom Taylor and features beautiful art from Chris Scalf.
The Clone Wars continues on Saturday with “Shades of Reason.” Without saying too much so as to avoid spoilers, you can expect to see the start of Darth Maul’s and Death Watch’s attempt to take over Mandalore. Sith, Mandalorian warriors, underworld groups like the Hutts, Black Sun, and the newly introduced Pikes…the Jedi are going to have their work cut out for them this time.
