The Force Awakens left fans with many questions as they walked out of the theater. How did the galaxy end up like this? Who are these different factions? Why is there a Republic and a Resistance? These questions and so many more have been swirling around fandom ever since December 17th, 2015 and in the era of “it’s all connected” the ancillary materials have become even more important.

In this supplemental episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing and newly awakened John Mills talk about Greg Rucka’s Before the Awakening. We discuss if the book should have come out before the movie, if it would have effected our movie viewing, Finn, Rey, Poe and our ratings.
