'THE LAST JEDI' - UPCOMING BOOKS AND TIE-INS...

Now inheriting Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, a haunted Rey stands alone, in a concept piece revealed in The Art of The Last Jedi, coming later this year.

The lack of new footage and enthused cast and crew for The Last Jedi at the recent San Diego Comic Con may have been a severe disappointment, but DISNEY's overall STAR WARS presence with regards to upcoming books and comic tie-ins was certainly never more abundant nor more scintilating- with some stunning covers showcasing upcoming releases for the rest of the year, for many returning recognized names penning sequel related endeavours and pre-bridging adventures.We're looking forward particularly to the novelisation, the Art of via ABRAMS, and DK's Incredible Cross-sections.

OUT THIS MONTH: 'STAR WARS: 99 STORMTROOPERS JOIN THE EMPIRE'


They are the fan beloved foot soldiers of the Galactic Empire, with their feared visage and violence thuggery when en massed legion: Imperial Stormtroopers.

And yet, despite their cool visual appeal, and their importance as a notable enemy, they are the worst shots ever seen on film, and they've been mocked numerous times in other key ways to the point where they have become a mine of comedy gold by writers/comediennes across the pop culture universe.

Now, acclaimed writer/artist Greg Stones celebrates the Imperial Stormtrooopers in a fun and danger- filled way that is both clever, inspired and very funny, as 99 of them fall to various dire unexpected, unfortunate and careless demises across the entire STAR WARS saga, as they mix with Prequel and Classic Trilogy (including the recent Rogue One) characters, and across various worlds and environments. Out this month from CHRONICLE, STAR WARS: 99 STORMTROOPERS JOIN THE EMPIRE is a lovely addition to the STAR WARS family humour books range.
