Execute Chapter 66 – Shadows of the Empire

The Skywalker saga may be over, but there are enough books to keep Star Wars fans satisfied for years to come. Chad, Ryan, and Beth have started a series to keep you up to date on all the action. Join our book club as we run down the best that canon, legends, and comics have to offer.
 
In the late 90’s Shadows of the Empire was a pretty big deal. There was a book, a video game, toys, and various other things revolving around this ambitious project. For better or worse it’s been moved back into the realm of legends, but we still wanted to talk about it. Some things in the old expanded universe have aged better than others, and this book was very different than we remembered. Join us for a strange trip down memory lane as we look back at Shadows of the Empire.

Toy collecting can be a very different experience depending on where you are on the planet.

And there’s no better way to delve into these differences than to talk to a fellow collector from far, far away!

Execute Chapter 66 – Darth Plagueis

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-wz677-e26ff0

The Skywalker saga may be over, but there are enough books to keep Star Wars fans satisfied for years to come. Chad, Ryan, and Beth have started a series to keep you up to date on all the action. Join our book club as we run down the best that canon, legends, and comics have to offer.
 
It’s time to dip our toes into the world of Star Wars Legends. Darth Plagueis is only mentioned once across nine full movies, but his effect can be felt throughout the entire series. The Sith lord who helped make old Sheev the super villain of Star Wars has a pretty great history, and this book tells it well. While it may not have the action of other offerings, it’s so well written that you’ll be able to see why this is one of our favorite books.
