Yeah the TPM prequel novels were after the fact because they couldn't jump headfirst into an unknown world and write a whole damn prequel novel. There were prequel novels to Ep. 2 / Ep. 3 because stuff had been established by then, which I foresee repeating for Ep. 8 / Ep. 9. Ep. 7? No way. For a novel. Marvel is gonna get a prequel 3-4 issue comic down the pike come September 2015 for issue #1 damn skippy. Maybe even November and do it bi-monthly.
