It’s another Force Fan Book Club on today’s special Friday Edition of Force Fan Podcasts! You know we’re talking the new “Doctor Aphra” audio drama by Sarah Kuhn. Some slight disagreements about how strong this one stand on its own, but overall, it’s a whole lot of fun on a bun that we can’t recommend enough!
Who is Darth Vader? That’s the big question we’re asking ourselves as we deep dive into all 5 issues of last year’s “Vader: Dark Visions” comic mini-series! Did “Dark Visions” fulfill its promise to show us new sides of Vader? Well, sort of. Plus, some discussion on that surprising new “The Bad Batch” animated series that’s scheduled to hit Disney+ in 2021.
Long have we waited... For a new Force Fan book club episode!
After months of putting it off (for many reasons, some good and some lazy), we finally sat down and talked about “Star Wars: A New Dawn” by John Jackson Miller, the first (and most excellent) first novel written under the guide of Disney’s Lucasfilm Story Group.
We’re back with a new casual episode after taking a few weeks off to reflect on all the chaos going on in the world. Rather than focus on a book club like we originally had planned, we decided to just chat about all the Star Wars news and announcements since our last recording as a way to slowly try and get back into the groove of things.
Welcome back to a new (and regularly scheduled) Force Fan Podcast book club episode! Today, we thirst over James Luceno’s 2014 “Star Wars: Tarkin”, the second new canon novel produced under Disney’s Lucasfilm Story Group! There’s a lot to love and not to love, so take a listen and then give us your thoughts on this peculiar Star Wars novel!
It’s been over a year since our last casual episode, but considering that we’re living in a post "The Rise of Skywalker” and Clone Wars season 7 world, we think now’s a good time as any for us to just sit back and talk about all the upcoming Star Wars projects we have to look forward to. Spoiler Alert: We have a lot of new Star Wars coming our way. And John’s back in this one!
May the 4th be with you, Force Fans! We’re celebrating by releasing a special early episode this week where we discuss The Siege of Mandalore Arc and the series finale of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars!” MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD if you listen before watching. Hard to believe it’s been 12 weeks already, huh? They’ve been a heck of a time and we couldn’t be happier with the final outcome. Take a listen, let us know your thoughts, and join in on the all the Star Wars festivities today!
Welcome to our first official “Words About Comics” book club! To celebrate (and mourn) the impeding end of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, we decided to go back and revisit the “Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir” comic series, another excellent Clone Wars story that was initially lost but found a home in a new medium. A whole lot of love and new realizations about Maul’s place in the greater Star Wars universe in this episode (plus some exciting news talk), so don’t miss it!
Hard to believe we’ve been podcasting about “Star Wars” for 3 years now! To celebrate, we invited back our original Fans of the Force guest Flip (from Flip and the Combined Effort) to talk about his deep dive into the animated and literary side of the “Star Wars” Universe. We had a blast discussing his experience binging all of “Clone Wars” and his thoughts on “Rebels” so far, and how it’s changed his perspective on the movies. Don’t miss this extra fun episode!
