I love Kadir Nelson’s artwork. He’s done some of my favorite New Yorker covers lately, and this book is a shining example of his ability to tell a great story through imagery. The allegory presented is simple but beautiful, and it’s a good lesson leading into a new school year. I also feel like the book is timely for the peak of summer harvests.

Think a group of costumed kids can't scare Darth Vader? In the words of the iconic Sith Lord, I find your lack of faith disturbing. Adam Rex's impeccable comedic timing makes this book a laugh-out-loud joy from start to finish (and yes, more than one Porter Square bookseller was literally laughing out loud).

It's rare to find a piece of tie-in media that is such a work of love for the characters, the world, and the fans, but Lost Legends delivers. Like the original show, it is equal parts spooky, hilarious, and sweet. It's packed with secrets, Easter eggs, and secret codes. Also? It's just plain fun.
