Hardcore #1
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artist: Brian Stelfreeze
From the creative minds of Image partners Robert Kirkman & Marc Silvestri! Once the hard core is shot into the back of your neck, an assassin’s brain waves can be transmitted into your body–circumventing your brain functions–taking complete control of your body. When assassins use this technology–your killer can be anyone; your barber, your neighbor or your wife. They are the best assassins in the world–but what happens when one of their own turns against them? Who can you trust when your enemy can change his appearance as easy as someone changes a shirt?

Rating: ★★★☆☆

RODRIGO
RESIDENT ALIEN #1
A stranded alien seeks refuge in the small town of Patience, USA, where he hides undercover as a semiretired doctor, masking his appearance using his unique mental abilities. Now known as Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle, all the alien wants is to be left alone until he’s rescued. However, when the town’s real doctor dies, “Dr. Harry” is pulled into medical service—and also finds himself smack dab in the middle of a murder mystery! He’d rather be fishing. Acclaimed creators Peter Hogan (2000 AD,Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (The Milkman Murders, Doctor Who) deliver a truly unique sci-fi adventure tale!

Rating: ★★★★☆

Star Wars: Legacy – War
It’s an all-out war as the Sith emperor returns from the dead-stronger, more evil, more determined, and prepared to unleash a new secret weapon upon the galaxy! Roan Fel’s loyalist Imperials, the Galactic Alliance, and the Jedi are all on the defensive-reeling from the attacks by the unified Sith.
But Cade Skywalker has his own plans for this war–all this time spent running from his legacy has finally shown him that he can’t run . . . and he must stand alone against Darth Krayt! Collects the six-issue miniseries.

    If you’d like a good Star Wars book… have you guys read the Thrawn Trilogy? By Timothy Zahn.
    There’s a comic version of it as well. The regular book is a bit better but nonetheless a really cool Star Wars story that’s a lot like the movies imo!

    Hey guys, great episode once again! Since no one has posted anything on this yet, I feel I must point out that Luke Skywalker’s son was named Ben while his niece and nephews were the older twins Jacen (who apparently turned Sith at some point kinda) and Jainia and Anakin Solo (kids of Han and Leia). These characters were not technically invented by Lucas and were in the extended universe books. These characters are technically canon as Lucas counts the other books as canon- of course until/unless Lucas makes another trilogy and uses these characters’ time-frames. Hey, I was one of those nerds yelling at my computer! XD
    The Legacy War does sound really interesting. I may have to check this series out if I can.
    On another note- perhaps Kade doesn’t get any negative side effects from Force Lighting because he uses energies from both the Light AND Dark Side of the Force- the energies may cancel the side effects of both sides.
