In Case You Missed It – Week of 8/9/2010 to 8/15/2010
Sometimes a whole bunch of news comes out during the course of a given week and articles just don’t last long enough on our front page. Or perhaps it’s just that the piece of news wasn’t enough to warrant a front page story, but is still deserving of being recognized as newsworthy. In Case You Missed It is meant to be our catch-all for those things – a way for us to summarize the past week’s worth of news.
This week there was a whole lot of news out of Celebration V, concerning new novels, comics and more – and I’m not going to repeat those announcements here. If you want to see all that news, please check out our Celebration V Headlines. What you’ll find in here is all the other Star Wars news that came out this past week – the things not revealed at CV that might have been lost in the shuffle of that big convention.
First up, the November comic solicitations from Dark Horse came out last week, including news of Knight Errant Aflame #2, Blood Ties: A Tale of Jango and Boba Fett #4, The Old Republic #5, and the TPBs of Dark Times vol 4: Blue Harvest, and Legacy vol 10: Extremes. From Star Wars Books UK, it appears that vol 3 of the A Long Time Ago Omnibus will be releasing on February 22nd, 2011 from Dark Horse. And in other comic news, John Jackson Miller talks Knight Errant with IGN, and the Star Wars Shop now has copies of the Tales from the Clone Wars TPB available for order.
Speaking of The Clone Wars, the premiere date for Season 3 was announced this past week as September 17th, and you can enter a contest to host a House Party for the event here. In related gaming news, The Clone Wars Adventures is getting ready to launch, and you can have a look at screenshots at Science Fantasy Universe, as well as a preview video (the first in a series) from Lucasarts.
Likewise at Galactic Binder, you can listen to an interview with the producer of Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. In The Force Unleashed II news, Yoda will be appearing in the game and IGN has a new preview video while Gamespot has a new developer diary called The Story of Starkiller.
And in terms of larger media coverage, the San Louis Obispo Tribune talks about Star Wars: Year by Year, and the Los Angeles Times talks with A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back producer Gary Kurtz about his time in a galaxy not so far away.
