Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #36

Star Wars #36

– Spoiler Review –

Despite the need for rescuing C-3PO being practically forgotten, R2-D2’s escapades to do just that gives Jason Aaron’s Farewell Tour (the penultimate issue by the way) another hit on its hands with Star Wars #36. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #36”

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #35

Star Wars #35

– Spoiler Review –

Writer Jason Aaron’s farewell arc continues, and if Star Wars #35 is anything to go by, a short little tale of that one time Han smuggled a Hutt, Aaron will certainly be leaving this series on a high note. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #35”

Comic News: Kieron Gillen Takes Over Star Wars Series, Dr. Aphra Figure First Look, Thrawn Comic Adaptation Announced

Writer Jason Aaron, who has been the shepherd of the Star Wars mainline series since day one, will be stepping down and replaced by none other than Kieron Gillen (Darth VaderDoctor Aphra) himself, starting issue #38 later this year (first uncovered by the greatest sleuth of the internet, Florian of Jedi-Bibliothek). And over the weekend at SDCC 2017, not only was the fan-voted Doctor Aphra action-figure shown off, an adaptation of Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn novel was announced. Details are below on Gillen’s start of Star Wars, pictures of the Aphra figure, and some thoughts on what I believe to be a shrug-worthy idea in adapting Thrawn.

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #33

Star Wars #33

– Spoiler Review –

While the Star Wars mainline series was saved, momentarily, by The Screaming Citadel crossover with the Doctor Aphra series, it’s been awhile since I’ve really enjoyed an issue and knowing the next arc would start with Luke and Leia getting some alone time on an island, my apprehension was simply not helped. Thankfully, Star Wars #33 is a return to form for the series, not only giving us fantastic insight into Leia, but also some enjoyable twin team moments and the most exciting set up yet for what’s to come next (Hint: the series first (and nearly only) new character and a certain charming smuggler)!

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #32 – The Screaming Citadel Part 4

Star Wars #32 - The Screaming Citadel Part 4

– Spoiler Review –

Star Wars #32 is Part 4 of The Screaming Citadel crossover and it is the zaniest and most enjoyable issue yet! Triple-Zero falls in love (?!?), the symbiotes bring plenty of screams, and Doctor Aphra makes a surprising (for her, at least) decision. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #32 – The Screaming Citadel Part 4”

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #31 – The Screaming Citadel Part 2

Star Wars #31 - The Screaming Citadel Part 2

– Spoiler Review –

The Screaming Citadel crossover continues in Part 2 – Star Wars #31! Despite a new creative team for this portion of the crossover, none of the charm from Part 1 is lost and things spiral, ever entertainingly so, even more out of control for Doctor Aphra and Luke. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #31 – The Screaming Citadel Part 2”

“Nothing is impossible for the Force”: A Joint Retrospective on the first Darth Vader Comic Series

Darth Vader Series Retrospective

The original Darth Vader series, written by Kieron Gillen, with art by Salvador Larroca and Edgar Delgado, was part of the initial launch of Marvel’s return to Star Wars comics in 2015. After it ended over a year and a half later, October 2016, its epic story of betrayal, Sith machinations, and surprisingly well-laden doses of dark humor ensured it would live on in the hearts of fans new and old for years to come. Chris and I sat down to ruminate on the now classic series, which you can read below, discussing some of its various components that have led to its undeniable legacy in Star Wars comics as a whole.
