Star Wars Aftermath: Empire's End.

With the release of The Force Awakens, one of the biggest questions about the movie was, "What happened in the 30 years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens?". The Aftermath series by Chuck Wendig was meant to begin that tale, but has been middling at best and now the trilogy is coming to a close.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Bruce Gibson and Mark Hurliman to talk about Empire's End. We discuss our first/last impressions, dive deep into all 5 sections of the books and talk about the aftermath of these books the the state of canon, plus give out thoughts about the future of the books.

Star Wars: A New Dawn.

When Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012 and acquired the rights to Star Wars a lot of things happened very quickly: The Clone Wars was canceled, the Expanded Universe was canceled and in their places we would get a new animated show, Star Wars Rebels as well as a new literature line that would be fully canon. As it happened, the first book in the new canon would be the lead in to Rebels, taking place six years before the events of the series.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by fellow rebels Aaron Goins and Bruce Gibson to talk about A New Dawn. We discuss legends, a new canon, an introduction, the relationship question, Jedi relationships, proto-rebels, big Empire watching, bad businessmen, Imperials, they who must not be named and ratings.
