J.W. Rinzler tweeted two photos today to show off two upcoming books, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars Episode Guide” and the highly anticipated “Star Wars Storyboards: The Prequel Trilogy.” The photos show off the covers of both books while one shows some interior pages of the “Storyboards” release.
Rinzler’s book, “The Storyboards,” is slated for a May 14th release and is available, as of this writing, for only $24.82 on pre-order from Amazon.
“The Clone Wars Episode Guide” was written by Jason Fry and will include information on all five seasons of the television show, 108 episodes. Slated for a June 3rd release, the books is being published by DK Children and is also available for pre-order from Amazon ($9.43 as of 4/25).
Today, at New York Comic Con, Random House announced a new book about Obi-Wan Kenobi by John Jackson Miller. Titled simply “Kenobi,” the book will take place between Episodes 3 and 4 and go into more detail about how Obi-Wan became the Ben Kenobi that we first met in Star Wars: A New Hope.
The artwork, from Jackson’s website, is not the final for the book cover (although, I’d take it) and pre-order information will be forthcoming.
Don’t forget that today there are a couple really cool Star Wars events, and that’s not even including the new Clone Wars episode you should have just finished watching.
Barnes & Noble, along with independent book stores and libraries, is holding Star Wars Reads Day. You can check the B&N website for the event closest to you. Some stores will have Star Wars authors and personalities appearing, the 501st Legion will be out in some areas as will Star Wars fans of all ages.
Today is also the Fall Debut of the new Hallmark ornaments. All the ornaments that weren’t out for the preview in July should now be on store shelves. That includes a couple of the Star Wars offerings.
The Celebration VI website updated with the times for the author signings. All signings will be at the Barnes & Noble Booth (#129).
