The internet's Jesse Cox is joined by fellow Star Wars fans and friends Davis (Warp Zone) and Alex (The Dex) for a book club celebrating the new Star Wars lore. Our first book is the one all fans have been waiting for: Aftermath. We'll talk about its implications for the movie, what we thought of the first post-Episode VI novel, and some of our favorite parts.
Warning: this podcast is for those who have read the book.
Rogue One is finally here! Not only did we manage to watch it more than once, but watched it again right before recording. It was after midnight, but we needed to talk The Wars, so we decided to record at Alex's house into the wee hours of the morning. We have so many thoughts and opinions on this film and more importantly some interesting new feelings about Catalyst.
The boys are back, and this time covering the Star Wars comics "Shattered Empire" and "Vader" issues 7-12. What are our thoughts on the backstory of Poe Dameron's parents? What about the return of the amazing Dr. Aphra? All this and a whole bunch of joking around, in a brand new episode.
After much praise from Davis, the boys finally get to reading Star Wars: Tarkin. Is it as good as he says? This book looks deep into the back story of one of the Star Wars most interesting villains, Tarkin, and also offers a insights on several other characters they've become fascinated with over the past few episodes.
Season 3 of Clone Wars continues with a little less conversation and a little more action. The story really picks up and we finally get a deeper look into the mysteries of the force.
Note: This is part 2 of the 2 part Clone Wars episodes.
In this episode, the boys gather together to talk about the Lando 5 issue mini series comic as well at the first 6 issues of the Star Wars comic. Turns out the boys may have found their favorite new piece of fiction related to Star Wars!
What starts as a minisode to address interesting facts, loose ends, and various bits learned about the new Star Wars canon since the movie, turns into pretty much a normal episode. Lots of cool facts, cut scenes, strange info, and crazy theories.
The following images are mentioned in the episode:
The Star Wars book club returns, this time with one of the very first canonical books of the refreshed franchise - Dark Disciple, by Christie Golden. Taking place after the events of Clone Wars, the story deals with the relationship between fan favorites Quinlan Vos and Asajj Ventress. it also gets into some really dark subjects, when a Jedi is asked to assassinate someone. We have MANY thoughts on this one, so sit back, relax, and let's rap about the wars!
Jesse, Davis, and Alex return to talk season 2 of Clone Wars and more importantly if Alex is finally coming around to liking the series. We also note some of the more important and interesting threads developing in the new canon that connect to moments from the series.
SPOILERS! The following the book clubs conversation about The Force Awakens. Not only do they break down characters, but also moments in the movie that connect to their first reviewed book, Aftermath. Of course, we have our theories on things too!
This episode we get in depth with the newest Star Wars aftermath book. Life Debt. A new villain appears, some much needed backstory is given on old characters, and our team of misfits finally comes together in a way we love. Shout out to Chuck Wendig for nailing this one, after we didn't too much care for the first. Lots of theories and "did you catch this?!" moments have sprung from this book and hopefully our discussion reflects that.
The boys return to talk about their newest pick, Lords of the Sith. Not only do they discover Alex hates what they've done to the Emperor, but Jesse finds he now LOVES the jedi lore. Davis digs Moff Mors, and they talk their way to discovering the real main character in the book. This, and all the nonsense you've gotten used to in the newest episode of the Book Club!
Another large helping of Rogue One info has hit the internet, and the boys sit down to discuss all they can about the films newly released info. There are possible spoilers of course, BUT ALSO Jesse tells his now infamous meeting John Boyega story.
It might have taken awhile for the guys to all get back into the same room, but thankfully their return is for one of the biggest books to come out in the new canon thus far. How is life of Leia after the fall of the Empire? Is the job of a senator everything it's cracked up to be? Find out, in Bloodline!
The boys have returned to discuss both the first arc of the Vader comics and Leia's entry into the one off portion of the franchise. Turns out there is a lot to love in both, but one thing they just couldn't wrap their minds around...
We've finally come to it! Clone Wars Season 5! Will Alex like it?! Will Jesse and Davis be vindicated?! Will they completely ignore the droid episodes?! All this, and too much talk about rolling grenades under droids in this episode of Star Wars New Canon Book Club!
