On this episode, Dominic and Ben are joined by SWU "Senior Tie-In Materials Correspondent" Chris "Starrapter" Abbott (YouTube Link) to discuss the big reveal in the comic book War of the Bounty Hunters #1 and the implications of it for the wider Star Wars galaxy (to skip the spoiler discussion fast forward from 17:50 to 1:00:33). Then they look back on the first wave of The High Republic books and preview wave two (coming later this month), including a special spoiler free review of The Rising Storm by Cavan Scott from Starrapter. They also share their thoughts on the now complete Alphabet Squadron trilogy, including how this series could be a model for future novels. Plus, new Lego Star Wars sets have been revealed, the nihil as villains in the High Republic, and the future of characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story. All this and much more!
