End of the Year EU Releases: 2010

The time for endings is here! Star Wars Invasion: Rescues #6 (of 6) is here, and ends this chapter of the Invasion line. But fear not! With the latest developments in this recent issue, things look solid for the next arc! Something is definitely happening to Finn Galfridian. The question is, what?

This issue we see Finn strike off on his own, no longer tagging along with the Solo twins. After dropping Finn off at Nar Shaddaa they head back to the Jedi Academy and Master Luke Skywalker. Finn, as fate would have it, runs into the mysterious Dray, a newcomer who’s presence shakes up things for not only Finn, but perhaps the Jedi Order as well. Dray is something of an enigma; he can program Holocrons, has visions of the future, a majority of which will come true, and he seems to know more about Finn than Finn might like.  How will Dray change the landscape of Invasion in arc 3? We’re back to waiting to find out.  But while you’re awaiting word about the next part of the Invasion series, now is a great time to enjoy the entire first two arcs of Invasion! Be sure to check your local comic store to secure your copy.

And coming next week, (12/28) Joe Shreiber’s highly anticipated Zombie Horror novel, Red Harvest, will finally arrive in books stores near you! If you haven’t yet read the past seven plus chapter excerpts of Red Harvest, and are still on the fence about getting this book, take the time and check out the preview chapters! Who knows, you might find you like it!

Still not sure?  Then take a gander at the publisher summaries below:

Star Wars: Invasion: Rescues #6 (of 6):

The rescues have all been attempted, and the rescuers–Finn Galfridian and his sister Kaye–have learned fateful lessons about the Yuuzhan Vong invaders.

But Finn has also learned a secret about his mother and received clues about the mystery surrounding him. Finn knows that someday he must go back to the fight to free his homeworld from the invaders, as well as return to Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy and complete his Jedi training. But first he has a mission that he must complete in order to complete himself…

* A new era in Star Wars comics!

* Set within the time frame of the New Jedi Order novels from Del Rey!

Star Wars: Red Harvest:

The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans—and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality.

Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps—young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff—Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants. Suddenly her quiet existence among greenhouse and garden specimens is violently destroyed by the arrival of an emissary from Darth Scabrous. For the rare black orchid that she has nurtured and bonded with is the final ingredient in an ancient Sith formula that promises to grant Darth Scabrous his greatest desire.

But at the heart of the formula is a never-before-seen virus that’s worse than fatal—it doesn’t just kill, it transforms. Now the rotting, ravenous dead are rising, driven by a bloodthirsty hunger for all things living—and commanded by a Sith Master with an insatiable lust for power and the ultimate prize: immortality . . . no matter the cost.

And there you have it boys and girls of all ages, that completes our EU releases for the year of 2010. Hope you enjoy them! If you don’t have your copies ordered yet, be sure to click the links below to order today!
