Talk about long blog post titles. I think this one is a personal record!
A few things are going on in the BLACK STAR RENEGADES universe, so now that we've all been exhausted by the post title, let's get to it without delay!
First, if you're going to be attending NYCC, then you should mark it down to swing by the St. Martin's Press/Macmillan booth on Saturday between noon at 1. Because if you do, you'll score yourself a FREE advance copy of Black Star Renegades. But be advised--we had 4x the stock at SDCC, and we blew through every single book. So be there, and be there early!
Also, Kirkus Reviews had positively glowing words to say about Black Star Renegades, which is so cool. Kirkus is a huge, and influential, book review site. To get a good review from them--a great one, even--is a big deal.
Here's a little bit of what they said:
"an unapologetic love letter to Star Wars...These are all the same beats used in everything from Joseph Campbell’s mythology to George Lucas’ enduring saga, but Moreci has assembled them with such devotion and style that it’s impossible not to love this strange mashup for its own sake. From intergalactic space battles to blaster fights to rogue robots and various hives of scum and villainy, this shiny space opera is bound to be a pleasure for fans of all stripes."
You know and love Tim Seeley, right? Who doesn't? He's given us Hack/Slash, Revival, and soon, Imaginary Fiends. Also, he's written out of this world Batman and Nightwing. To say Tim is a great writer is an understatement--and he's also a man of refined taste, obviously, because he had great things to say about Black Star Renegades. See for yourself:
And, finally, remember that if you preorder Black Star Renegades, you'll have my love and gratitude for ever and ever. Preorders are SO important, so vital. And if you are wondering how/where to order, I've got you covered!
