The Binders Strike Back with DeAgostini’s new The Official Star Wars Fact File magazine. The Official Star Wars Fact File is a weekly publication that features “Essential Guide” like discussion of the events, characters, locations, and technology of the galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars Fact File #1 features:


The Battle of Yavin


R2-D2 (Artoo-Detoo)

Pistoeka Sabotage Droid: Buzz Droid



Darth Maul




Darth Vader’s Lightsaber


Millennium Falcon

Written by author  Iain Lowson the new edition of Star Wars Fact Files is planned for an approximate 120 issue run and is available in both print and digital editions.

I really enjoyed reading through issue #1 they contain not only info from the films and The Clone Wars but also elements of the Expanded Universe are included as well. Some of these articles are more in depth than we have previously seen in the Essential Guide reference books and at around 30 pages it is a not insubstantial bit of Star Wars information to digest every week.

A few shots from inside issue #1 to get an idea of what you get:
