Star Wars Books Unleashed

You may have to wait until summer to get your hands on the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed video game, but Titan Books is releasing a novel and graphic novel before the game comes out.

The story is the same – the years between Episode 3 and 4 when Vader went medieval on the galaxy, hunting down Jedi with the help of his dark apprentice. The novel is penned by Sean William and the graphic novel is written by Haden Blackman.

If you are like, dying to play this game, believe me — I understand. It looks badass. But if you want to sit down and read a novel, come on — novels based on movies suck, and this is a video game no less. If you’re feeling literary and want some good science fiction or fantasy, do yourself a favor: go pick up something by Robert Anton Wilson, George R.R. Martin, or Philip K. Dick.
