Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #37

Star Wars #37

– Spoiler Review –

This is it folks, the end of an era: Jason Aaron’s Farewell Tour of the Star Wars comic series comes to a close in issue #37, the last part of the “Out Among the Stars” arc. While it’s not as high a note as the previous few issues, it feels like a mostly fitting end to Aaron’s work, made even more so by the bonus one-shot included. In the coming weeks I’ll have a retrospective of his 37-issue run, so for now this review is simply of the final issue. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #37”

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #20

Star Wars #20

Spoiler Review –

Another break between story arcs for the Star Wars series, another entry in the “Journals of Old Ben Kenobi.” Star Wars #20 is the best of the journal entries to date and it ends with a fulfilling sense of finality to Obi-Wan’s tales on Tatooine.

Star Wars #15Spoiler Review –

The Star Wars on-going, fresh off the completion of Marvel’s first crossover event Vader Down, takes a break from the main narrative and returns to a story “From the Journals of Old Ben Kenobi,” last visited in issue #7. Star Wars #15’s entry from Kenobi’s journal is an extension from the story in #7, but it also explains in thorough and interesting detail just why Uncle Owen has such a big chip on his shoulder when it comes to their benevolent protector Obi-Wan. Everything, from the story to the art, combine to make a great continuation of Ben’s journals, while a surprise character sets up for an exciting return, whenever the next Journal entry comes.

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #7

Marvel Star Wars #7

Spoiler Review –

The Star Wars series takes a break from its main storyline in issue #7 and offers a breather in the form of a one-off starring Obi-Wan Kenobi during his time on Tatooine. After reading #7, I’d be perfectly content with every arc from the Star Wars series being split by another entry in Old Ben’s Journal. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #7”
