Alphabet Squadron, suit up! In this episode of "Tarkin's Top Shelf," Mark and Becca review the first part of a new trilogy, Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed and Del Rey Publishing. They dive-in on the characters and their backstories, and what makes them tick. Also, they touch on setting the stage for what's to come in the next two parts of this crossover event. But first, Mark and Becca talk about some "Breaking News" that spans from Galaxy's Edge to a fan event in a galaxy not so far, far away.

"Bright Suns to you!"  Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, where Books meet World. Or, Galaxy? In this episode of "Tarkin's Top Shelf," Mark and Becca discuss the current bridging of literature with the tangible in the galaxy far, far away. Only, that galaxy isn't so far away after all. That said, you could say, Star Wars, itself, is "On Planet." For those that don't know, "On Planet" is the Batuu phrase for "in the land," and a lot of what we've only read about has now become a palpable reality at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Books like Star Wars: TIE FIGHTER Owner's Manual, Star Wars: Millennium Falcon Owner's Manual, Star Wars: Alien Archive, and many more. So, hop aboard the closest YT-1300 freighter and "May the Spires Keep You!"
