I've been posting a bit about the new canon novels and comics in the Force Awakens thread, which seems to be the default place for general Star Wars chat at the moment. But I think the new canon fiction deserves a thread of its own, partly because most of it has nothing to do with the Force Awakens, partly because soon the Rogue One thread will become the main Star Wars thread for a while, and partly so that people who are interested the films but not the spin-off fiction don't have to put up with my rantings on maps, Threepio's arm, or any other trivial minutiae. And also because there is already a decent library of books and comics in the new canon, and it's only going to keep growing. So, let's start with a definition of the new canon. From Wookieepedia: (I will leave it for the reader to decide whether me starting this thread exactly two years after its subject arose is (a) the will of the Force, (b) proof of how anal I am about this stuff, or (c) just a coincidence.) Basically, anything published since May 2014 is part of the new canon. Anything published before that isn't, but are now "Legends" that may or may not prove to be "true". Two years on, that new canon so far consists of: Books A New Dawn Tarkin Heir to the Jedi Lords of the Sith Dark Disciple Lost Stars Aftermath Battlefront: Twilight Company Comics Ongoing series: Star Wars Darth Vader Poe Dameron Obi-Wan & Anakin Completed series & one-shots: Kanan Princess Leia Lando Shattered Empire Chewbacca C-3PO So this thread is for discussion of any of the above, and further new titles as they are published. And inevitably, the old Legends too. And puns. If you don't like puns, leave now, via the Rear Windu. What have you read, what did you think, and what are you looking forward to? --------------------- I ought to start the ball rolling, I suppose. I'm trying to read all of the new canon, but without breaking the bank, so I'm buying the comics when they are collected into Trade Paperbacks rather than the individual issues. Similarly, I'm waiting for the paperback versions of the novels. This means I've read all the completed comics series listed above, and the first two volumes each of Star Wars and Darth Vader. I was a lot slower starting on the novels, so the only one I've finished so far is Lost Stars, but now I've started reading all of them in story chronology order, and I'm rattling though Dark Disciple. I've found the comics so far to be generally very good, with some excellent (Kanan and Princess Leia) and a couple of disappointments (Shattered Empire and C-3PO). The two main ongoing series (Star Wars and Darth Vader) are definitely both worth reading. I loved the way Volume 1 of both series linked together, and especially their endings, which added so much in a few panels to a relationship we all thought we fully understood for over thirty years. With the novels, I think I've been lucky. I started with Lost Stars, which (it turns out) is widely regarded as the best of the lot, and I can see why. It's a love story with the events of the original trilogy happening in the background but don't be put off by that description! It's really a fantastic way of seeing the Galactic Civil War through the eyes of people caught up in it and swept along by it while they try to live their lives. The author Claudia Gray has another Star Wars novel coming out later this year, and if I wasn't planning to read them all anyway, I would definitely be reading that one. Then I read about a quarter of Aftermath, which I found both dull and confusing (too many unconnected storylines with characters I didn't care about) but which I will force myself to try again when I get back round to it in the chronology. I also read the novelisation of The Force Awakens, which was rubbish but also non-canon so we can ignore it forever. And now I'm coming to the end of the "first" of the new novels, Dark Disciple, which is set in the Clone Wars, and is based on a story written for the last series of the Clone Wars series, but never produced, as Disney pulled the plug when they took over. It's about a Jedi (Quinlan Vos) forging an alliance with an ex-Sith (Asajj Ventress) to overcome a mutual enemy, and their struggles with the dark side, and with each other. I'm finding it to be every bit as good as Lost Stars, just as much of a page-turner, and unless the ending is a huge letdown I will be recommending it just the same. ---------------------- September 2017 update: New books published since April shown in bold.

  6. Recently purchased the Superman Earth One series of graphic novels on the back of having enjoyed Batman v Superman somehow. I blasted through them rather quickly and really enjoyed them, although they are not perfect. Looking for other graphic novels more geared towards adults (ala watchmen) on the subject. Any recommendations?
