Bounty Hunters #18 Review Mynock Manor

With the War of the Bounty Hunters crossover over, every series involved is finding its way to deal with the fallout of a resurgent Crimson Dawn, and for Bounty Hunters #18, that means Beilert Valance is in a unique new position and T’onga and her wife’s crew are looking for new clues to complete their mission. Free of the crossover, the series feels like it’s finding its legs again, to some extent. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Bounty Hunters #18”

The Book of Boba Fett TV Spots, Character Posters

Now we’re officially one month away from the start of The Book of Boba Fett, starring Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, some new TV spots have dropped, as well as character posters and the news it’ll only last for 7 episodes. That means it’ll run from December 29 until February 9, 2022. Both spots feature a smidgen of new footage but contain the declaration of “I am Boba Fett,” which I guess could be a reference to his first appearance in The Holiday Special but sounds kind of cheesy regardless, which might be exactly what this show needs. Head below for the posters and other TV spot, otherwise be sure to check into the Manor for our weekly reviews starting December 29!

Dark Horse Returns to Star Wars Comics Spring 2022; Brotherhood Cover Revealed

Dark Horse Star Wars Comics Brotherhood Cover

Nearly 8 years after losing the Star Wars license to Marvel, itself the original publisher of Star Wars comics decades before, Dark Horse Comics (DHC or DH) will return to offer up all-ages content, replacing IDW in Spring 2022. In the announcement, DHC founder and CEO revealed they’ll initially “…focus on stories featuring the High Republic,” but expect all eras to have content eventually, across on-going series, anthologies, one-shots, and specials. As for when in 2022, I’d expect we’ll see their content start in April, maybe May at the latest, as IDW’s current series are all solicited out until March. We’ll have more as they announce it, like what series, authors, and artists to expect, but for now head below to see the writing was on the wall for some type of announcement like this since September, plus see the final cover for the upcoming Obi-Wan and Anakin novel, Brotherhood!
