[] A look inside Stormtroopers: Beyond the Armor

One of the most interesting books to be announced at this year's Star Wars Celebration Orlando was Journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi: Stormtroopers: Beyond the Armor from Harper Design. Penned by Star Wars stalwarts Ryder Windham and Adam Bray this "unique and beautifully designed compendium with removable features traces one of the franchise’s most iconic characters—the stormtrooper—from initial development through all nine Star Wars movies to their many iterations in TV, comics, videogames, novels, and pop-culture. Star Wars: A New Hope, the very first installment in the beloved science-fiction series, introduced the Imperial stormtroopers—the army of the fearsome and tyrannical Galactic Empire.

REVIEW . . .

[ Thrawn ] [] Thrawn
By Timothy Zahn
Reviewed by Ewan, Star Wars Books & Comics

probably the most iconic Star Wars character never to have appeared on screen. A fan favourite for more than a quarter of a century, Thrawn has epitomised for a whole generation of fans a villain who does not fit the classic Star Wars dichotomy of good and evil: Thrawn was a man of honour, imbued with a sense of nobility [...] a book that will appeal to old and new fans alike. Older fans will once again smile as they recognise that this is the same Thrawn that they admired a quarter of a century ago, while newer fans will gawk as he explains to Vanto (and anybody else who will listen) how he was able to outmanoeuvre not only his foes but also, in some cases, his friends. In short, Thrawn is back!....read full review
