Weekly EU Releases: Oct 31st – Nov 6th

This week will feel a little slower fans. With only 2 releases this week, you’ll find that two just isn’t enough. Not when one of these two is the reprinting of the Blood of the Empire free webcomic. But never fear! Most of you comic fans were dying to get your in print copy anyway.

Next comes Star Wars: Visions, I could go on about this book, but why listen to me, the guy who’s not grabbed a copy yet? Here’s what the editor had to say about this book:

When Star Wars debuted in 1977, it revolutionized mainstream American filmmaking, transporting fans to new galaxies and introducing them to countless now-classic characters, aliens, planets, and starships. In the decades since, the Star Wars Saga has become a phenomenon impacting cultures across the globe.

Just as George Lucas drew upon the work of N. C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell for his own visual inspiration, he has now invited more than 100 well-known and promising artists to draw upon the entire Star Wars galaxy for inspiration. Star Wars: Visions collects these magnificent artworks for the first time. Featuring pieces by renowned artists such as Amano, Allan R. Banks, Harley Brown, Gary Carter, James Christensen, Michael Coleman, Kinuko Craft, Jim Dietz, Phillipe Druillet, Donato Giancola, Ann Hanson, H. R. Giger, Daniel Greene, Ron Kleeman, Arantzazu Martinez, Syd Mead, Moebius, Paul Oxborough, Alex Ross, Anthony J. Ryder, Dolfi Stoki, William Stout, Dan Thompson, Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo, Scott Waddell, and Jamie Wyeth, Star Wars: Visions is a breakthrough tribute to the worldwide inspiration that is Star Wars.

And there you have it boys and girls of all ages, this week’s EU Releases. Hope you enjoy them!
