Weekly EU Releases: Jan 27th – Feb 2nd

This week sees a book, comic, and television release so there’s a good chance there will be something you’ll enjoy (unless all you want is a new video game, then you’re out of luck).

First up, on Tuesday we have the paperback reprint of Fate of the Jedi – Apocalypse by Troy Denning. Apocalypse is the final book in the Fate of the Jedi series, so this reprint will be putting an end to this era. Unless Crucible is labeled as part of it instead of starting a new era…we’ll have to wait and see. Anyway, if you’ve been collecting this series in paperback, now is the time for you to pick up the last piece.

Agent of the Empire – Hard Targets #4 is out on Wednesday. Agent Cross is put at odds between his orders and doing what is right…even if it goes against the Empire’s needs.

Finally, the Darth Maul/Mandalorian arc of The Clone Wars concludes on Saturday with “The Lawless.” Expect big things to happen in this episode. Maul has been making some pretty big waves these past few episodes, and important people will have noticed by now…

Check out this week’s summaries below, the head over to the EU Release Schedule, now updated with the episode titles for the next arc of The Clone Wars!

There will be no mercy.

The Imperial Navy has arrived and Agent Cross has been officially told to stand down from his mission overseeing the election of a regent for the young Duke of Serenno.
