[ Bloodline ] [] Bloodline
By Claudia Gray
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

Lost Stars was a nice read, that grew to be amazing in the wake of the events of Alderaan's destruction, but then turned into an unfocused and uninspired retelling of the movies. The battle of Jakku was also just a backdrop to romantic melodrama. Bloodline is for the first 250 pages a rather uninteresting investigation mixed with a very simplistic political plot, that paints Leia within its first 10 pages as a complete hypocrite (other than that, Leia's portrayel is a strong point of Gray's writing)...read full review

[] Details of IDW's Star Wars Adventures comics

Publisher IDW have released details of their forthcoming Star Wars Adventures comic series via CBR.com. First announced at this year's Star Wars Celebration Orlando, these new comic book stories are aimed towards a younger audience (leaving Marvel to focus on the "older" market), with each 32-page issue having self-contained stories: at least one story per issue. IDW expect to release at least one issue per month with releases being more frequent (more than one issue per month) in the lead up to the release of The Last Jedi in December.
According to IDW's President and Chief Operating Officer, Greg Goldstein, the stories are "primarily" original and will be "set in the entire Star Wars combined universe: They can be the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, the modern films, some of the offshoots that are still considered part of the canon"....read full story
