Artist Dave Dorman is one of the few Star Wars artists I know who does an annual sketchbook. This year Dave is offering Leadworks No. 2 which is a 20 page booklet (5.5″x8.5″) featuring a variety of sketches ranging from Star Wars to The Walking Dead. In addition to the sketchbook, Dave is also offering Oil & Water: Xenocide and Oil & Water: Wizardry and Magic. Both are booklets just like Leadworks, but they contain full color images of his paintings. Xenocide focuses on Aliens and Predator whereas Wizardry and Magic is all fantasy based work for companies like Wizards of the Coast and Blizzard. Below are some images of the artwork to give you an idea of what’s inside.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond. Be sure to check out the book and comic news. Random House has revealed two new Star Wars books and a bunch of Star Wars comic trade paperback collections for October.

Book News

  • Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void had it’s UK release yesterday, so Star Wars fans across the pond can dig into Tim Lebbon’s enjoyable launch to the beginning of the timeline. Tim has a list of retailers on his website if you need to check them out.
  • Jeffrey Brown has a new book coming out this week: Kids Are Weird. Similar to Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess, it features full color artwork with one page comic bits. You can check Amazon’s page which has the look inside option to get a better idea.
  • Random House has updated their product page with two new Star Wars books. Unfortunately, there’s not much info on either. Simply called “Untitled Star Wars #1 by Ballantine” and “Untitled Star Wars #2 by Ballantine“, they’re both listed at 256 pages and have ISBN numbers. The #1 has a September 2 release date and #2 has a November 4 release date. This corresponds somewhat with the mysterious Amazon listing Knights Archive spotted last month for a Jedi Academy Trilogy by Ballantine. Could this mean a shift from Del Rey back to Ballantine for the Star Wars adult novel line?
  • Star Wars artist Dave Dorman is doing a new G.I. Joe art book. You can check out the details here along with a link for orders.

Comic News

  • According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso, along with several other reps, visited Lucasfilm last week for some Star Wars discussions. Rumor has it that there will be a “couple monthly series”. Nothing official, but it’s an interesting rumor.
  • Random House has also updated their product page with some new comic trade paperbacks. There’s Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir (October 14), Star Wars: Rebel Heist (October 21), Star Wars Volume 4: A Shattered Hope (October 28), Star Wars Legacy II Volume 4: Empire of One (October 28), and Star Wars Volume 3: Rebel Girl (October 14).

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Star Wars artist Grant Gould will be illustrating How to Draw Star Wars Rebels. No word on a release date yet.

Comic News

  • Randy Stradley gave an update on Star Wars trade paperback and omnibus collections over on the Dark Horse forums.

The second Dark Times Omnibus is indeed our final scheduled Omnibus. We will produce trades for all of the current series, but there is not enough time within our remaining license to publish Omnibuses. Dark Horse’s goal, obviously, must be to sell as much of our inventory before our final cut-off date.

There may — and I stress may be one more hardcover book before the end of the year. News about that when I have it.
