Kenobi is a hardcover.
And a hard drinker.
Hah! Kenobi with AA tokens rattling in his robes *chuckles*
Hey I am being paranoid worrying myself sick that Disney is about to abandon and erase most of the EU from the Star Wars timeline?
I would say, have a healthy expectation it will happen. Better to be pleasantly surprised than bitterly disappointed.
I am very excited for the Kenobi novel. Cant wait to see how Miller dazzles me this time!
You're not the only one. I'm just hoping they come out with lots of quality stuff to make up for it.
Looks like Star Wars Art (book 4) can now be listed as Star Wars Art: Concept according to Amazon. (Sorry if this isn't new news - I just stumbled onto the renamed listing tonight.)
Wow we haven't had releases this close together in years. I am happy.
How come you slack blokes don't have the Darth Maul hardcover listed?
Maybe because the current list is from January 14, and he Darth Maul book news was released on January 24?
It will be up when the list will be renewed (I will send out the new list to 2ndQuest today). In the meantime, you can always check the following link for day-to-day updates of the list:

And the list is updated, reflecting changes made up until March 15! Thanks 2ndQuest!
Oh yeah, and October 2014 should read August 2014... sorry 'bout that!
UPDATE: The Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison hardcover has been moved from March 27 to April 10.
Yes, but it's going to be quite an expensive year if you buy all the new novels. They're all hardcovers, plus there are several new hardcover reference books. I thought the number of releases was going to be cut back after the epic publishing schedules for recent EU book series?
I'd had been happier if there had been a mixture of hardcovers and paperbacks.
I agree the new hardcover thing is ridiculous. Why in the past three years, when DR has had this contract since 99?
Especially when they should be trying to promote more physical sales befor digital takes over...
digital won't take over. its an alternative
Kinda like what they said about Skynet.....
I would hope so....but give it 50 years.
Having dealt with digital products, I only see music as a truly superior version.
I would much rather own a physical film, videogame or book. I am sure many people agree with me. Physical means you own it so long as you don't lose it, break it or sell it.
Its yours. But digital can be lost due to all these licensing shenanigans. People say "you will always have the ability to redownload old purchases" but what if the distributor goes under?
Until these issues or solved, Digital is just a cheaper but ALTERNATIVE form. I can see it taking over past my lifetime though.
I agree. I'm just worried future generations wont appreciate it as much...
A digital future is ok, but it can't be a short term way to leech money off consumers.
That link is primary why I detest digital and always try to avoid making purchases for them. I believe you can't even redownload your old purchases because the service doesn't exist anymore.
I could have gotten my x-wing omnibuses today by getting them digitally, but I chose to get hard copies. With the future of SW comics not being 100% definitive, it never hurts to be safe
I do the same. I don't think I own and book/comic in digital format.
Even when there's exclusive online material, I always print it out, so I can thumb through it in my file-maps and keep it safe (unless there's a fire, of course...). I hate to have digital stuff, as I do not believe it will survive a lfietime (look at the amazing WotC content from years back, and you'll see what I mean)...
I like purchasing comics on my iPad because I can zoom in on photos, which is pretty awesome. I have been using my Kindle for mostly all of my reading, I really only purchase Essential Guides in physical format. The next physical book I am getting is The Book of Sith, which I can't wait for/hope is as cool as Jedi Path.
Bad news but good to know.
Since I moved countries I cannot find a good comic book store and not everything that can be purchased online is deliverable. I relied on digital format, but I much prefer to read hardcopies. Got Kindle for books and it works perfectly fine, but like a computer screen, it's not the nicest solution for comics.
