Last week Tuesday, Del Rey Publishing and DK Publishing took to their Twitter accounts. Both announced that Due to the ever-expanding world of The Mandalorian, they are no longer publishing The Mandalorian Ultimate Visual Guide or the Original Novel at this time, as the story continues to unfold on-screen. In this episode of Tarkin's Top Shelf, Mark and Becca discuss those announcements and do their best to look beyond the obvious and the so-called rosy goggles that tend to blind us from being rational. But first, your hosts go over the latest Star Wars news, The Tartakovsky Clone Wars and Ewok movies coming to Disney + April 2nd, and The Bad Batch debut on May 4th!

In this episode of Tarkin's Top Shelf, Mark and Becca review the finale to the Alphabet Squadron trilogy, Star Wars: Victory's Price by Alexander Freed. Your hosts kick-off the show by chatting about the latest in Star Wars news, then they deep-dive into the meat and potatoes of Victory's Price. Ok, it's more like an emotional meat grinder than a meal, but it's still one helluva hero's journey!

A special thank you to the kind folks over at Del Rey Publishing for providing Tarkin's Top Shelf with advanced copies for review purposes.
