No Databurst this week due to the ongoing concerns with the coronavirus. Many events and conventions are being delayed or cancelled to help prevent the spread of the virus, so if you do know of any and plan on attending, be sure to double check the events to see if the schedules have changed.

That said, the 501st has members who are in the healthcare industry who are taking the fight on first hand. This is from The 501st Legion’s Facebook page…

The Rise of Skywalker novelization by Rae Carson is out today. Click here to check out our review.

Witness the epic final chapter of the Skywalker saga with the official novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, including expanded scenes and additional content not seen in theaters!

The Resistance has been reborn. But although Rey and her fellow heroes are back in the fight, the war against the First Order, now led by Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, is far from over. Just as the spark of rebellion is rekindling, a mysterious signal broadcasts throughout the galaxy, with a chilling message: Emperor Palpatine, long thought defeated and destroyed, is back from the dead.

Has the ancient Lord of the Sith truly returned? Kylo Ren cuts a swath of destruction across the stars, determined to discover any challenge to his control over the First Order and his destiny to rule over the galaxy—and crush it completely. Meanwhile, to discover the truth, Rey, Finn, Poe, and the Resistance must embark on the most perilous adventure they have ever faced.

Featuring all-new scenes adapted from never-before-seen material, deleted scenes, and input from the filmmakers, the story that began in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and continued in Star Wars: The Last Jedi reaches an astounding conclusion.

Here’s a link to the official product page with purchase links and excerpts.

Marvel has three new Star Wars releases today.

Bounty Hunters #1

Writer: Ethan Sacks
Artist: Paolo Villanelli
Cover Artist: Lee Bermejo

NEVER BETRAY A BOUNTY HUNTER – ESPECIALLY IF IT’S BOBA FETT! Years ago, VALANCE and fellow bounty hunters BOSSK and BOBA FETT took on a mission that went sideways in a bad way after Valance’s mentor, NAKANO LASH, violently betrayed them. Valance’s team barely escaped with their lives. He never thought he’d face his old mentor ever again…until Lash finally resurfaces under mysterious circumstances. Every bounty hunter in the galaxy wants a piece and Valance is hell-bent on getting to the prize first. He has score to settle-but so does Boba Fett! ETHAN SACKS (OLD MAN HAWKEYE and GALAXY’S EDGE) and PAOLO VILLANELLI (VADER: DARK VISIONS and JEDI FALLEN ORDER – DARK TEMPLE) are teaming up to bring you the bounty hunter adventure you’ve been waiting for this March!

Details: Rated T, $3.99 Continue Reading New Releases: ‘Bounty Hunters #1’, ‘Darth Vader #2’ & ‘The Rise of Kylo Ren #4’…
