Weekly EU Releases: Dec 3rd – 10th

Embrace Nothingness this week! Or at least take a look at the newest Sith Lord who does. At last we behold a glimpse of Lord Odion’s twisted mentality! And like his brother Lord Daiman he’s a whole new kind of nut-case. With a cover that mirrors the original Deak Starkiller concept art by legendary artist Ralph McQuarrie, Knight Errant: Aflame #3 (of 5) comes out swinging. Well, Jedi Knight Kerra Holt does at any rate.

Next we have Legacy: Extremes. this Trade Paperback is showing up on Diamond’s shipping list this week even though Amazon still shows its release date as December 21, so who knows, your local comic store might have received some copies. Volume 10 wraps up the Legacy comic series with this Trade Paperback, but never fear Legacy fans! You still have the up coming Legacy: War to go to tie up those last few plot lines in this epic new era of the Star Wars EU.

Lastly the Scholastic paperback Star Wars: Lightsabers will be out this Friday. All the details you thought you knew about Jedi and Sith,  Lightsabers collects in one book. At 64 pages long, this young reader book collects details on Sabers from Mace Windu, to Darth Maul, and you can see them all!

And be sure to hit your local comic shop this week, or have your copies pre-ordered to unravel the EU Mysteries! Are you not quite sold on this weeks EU additions yet? Well, here’s the publisher summaries; they might help you decide.

Knight Errant: Aflame #3 (of 5):

Amidst Sith–on–Sith violence, lone Jedi Kerra Holt persists with her near–broken mission!

Trapped behind enemy lines and still eager to follow through with help for the oppressed miners on Chelloa, Kerra strikes out on her own to rid the galaxy of at least one Sith Lord. But she’s still incredibly green and ruled too much by her strong feelings, and keeping her plan on track might prove to be too much for the young Jedi . . .

Legacy Vol 10 : Extremes:

One hundred thirty-three years after Luke Skywalker made his final stand against the Emperor and Darth Vader, the Galactic Alliance, Emperor-in-exile Roan Fel’s forces, and the reunited Jedi Order are finally ready to take on the Sith Empire. Everyone is out of hiding, and the battle lines have been drawn. Cade Skywalker is back in action, as well – leading a personal vendetta against the Sith, and brought to the brink of having to accept his family legacy, or deny it once and for all!

Lightsabers:

The first and only guide to the galaxy’s most fascinating weapons.

Each lightsaber is as unique as the Jedi (or Sith) who wields it. Design techniques, hilt length, power source: all of these choices can add up to very different results, suited to particular applications. From Obi-Wan’s modification of his Padawan lightsaber to Darth Maul’s double-welded model, this book examines each lightsaber in detail, revealing the secrets of its construction.

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