Newsarama has a juicy look at the next Dark Times arc, A Spark Remains, with some beautiful looking artwork from Doug Wheatley. There’s cover art, interior art and comments from writer Randy Stradley.

Launching July 17, Star Wars: Dark Times: A Spark Remains shows one of the last “sparks” of Jedi – the insectoid Beyghor Sahdett and a lovesick Dass Jennir – attempting to mount an assassination of the right hand of the Empire, Darth Vader. The Jedi are used to long odds, but even these two know they need some back-up – it’s just a matter of finding the right Jedi for the job.

Author John Jackson Miller kicked off his new sci-fi project this week with Episode 1 of Overdraft: The Orion Offensive, an eight episode science fiction story full of aliens, action and humor. We interviewed John about Overdraft and the colorful characters therein, plus we squeezed in some questions for the ever anticipated Kenobi which will be out later this year.

First off, lets cover your new original science fiction story Overdraft: The Orion Offensive. How did the idea for the project begin?

At the time, I had done nothing but licensed work for eight years, and felt like it would be a good change of pace to create something that was all my own. The story I wrote for the book — which Baen published in 2012 — was “Human Error,” an extended, humorous anecdote about a group of space marines who get sent the wrong species’ armor by mistake.

Renowned Star Wars artist Dave Dorman is offering the Dave Dorman Experience: Year Two for some very lucky fans. This is a special opportunity to meet and hang out with Dave, gets some portfolio advice, watch Dave at work, view his paintings and get a chance at some cool gifts. Definitely a rare opportunity. If you’re a Dave Dorman fan, you can check out the details here on Dave’s blog.

Something for Star Wars and Star Trek fans, Eric Pfeiffer over at Yahoo! News provided some coverage of the Star Trek vs. Star Wars psychology panel from Wondercon. It’s quite a different look at the two franchises.

Apex Magazine did an interview with author Daniel Abraham which you can check out here. While it doesn’t cover his upcoming Star Wars novel (the unnamed Han Solo book which will be part of the Rebels series), it does cover some interesting stuff.

There are a lot of Star Wars podcasts out there, and I listen to a few, so I thought fans might be interested in a combination podcasts review/roundup. Expect this to be a periodic column, and be sure to let us know what Star Wars podcasts you’re interested in.

Bombad Radio: Episode 76 is a must hear podcast for The Clone Wars fans as it includes a great interview with voice actor Tom Kane. Tom performed a few voices, from Yoda and Yularen to his absolutely perfect Morgan Freeman. It also delves into some details on a Yoda arc Tom worked on for The Clone Wars Season 6 which we may or may never see. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
