It wasn’t until about a year and a half ago that I went from being a casual comic book fan to a serious collector. I recently looked back at my large collection on my books and comics from this year, and I tallied it up. I suddenly realized how much I had spent this year on comics and books alone. More than four hundred dollars. While that might not be much to some people, to me, a more low-budget collector, this is a substancial amount of money.

While there are a lot of Star Wars comics, when you break it down, only two or three, sometimes even less, come out every month. Other than a few issues of Knights of the Old Republic and Legacy that have slipped through my fingers, I’ve picked up almost every single issue.

As for books, this year I’ve bought and read up the first four Legacy of the Force books, Allegence, Destiny’s Way, Outbound Flight, X-Wing: Isard’s Revenge, and X-Wing: Starfighters of Adumar. As usual, these are in addition to re-reading older books with the Star Wars Action News book club.

Well, I’m not sure if it’s been deemed “official” yet, but apparently part of the synopsis (the summary of the story on the back of the book) of Revelation has been leaked onto the Internet. It’s already on all the major fan sites, so I decided to post it. Take it with a grain of salt.

In his new mantle as Sith Lord, Jacen Solo’s dark powers reach a peak as he
continues to crush opposition across the warring galaxy and bring his dream
of a new order closer to fruition. But those who once fought at his side now
turn against him, and as his unexpected enemies rally to the confederacy,
Ben Skywalker discovers the full and terrible truth of how his mother died.

Remember: this was leaked on a forum. Not always the most solid source of information. Also, with this being the second to last book in the series, why is Ben  just now coming to terms with the death of his mother? It seems as if the synopsis of Revelation would be a little more… revealing then this. Also, this is only part of a synopsis, judging by it’s size.

Also this week, the cover art of Drew Karpyshyn’s sequel to Darth Bane: Path of Destruction was released this week. It looks like Rule of Two will be the official title of this one, removing suspicion that it was a temporary title.
