Canon Comic Review: Star Wars Adventures Annual 2018

Star Wars Adventures Annual 2018

IDW’s Star Wars Adventures, which launched in September of last year, as been steadily bringing readers great little stories with familiar characters big and small across the saga for quite some time. It’s Annual 2018 issue isn’t much different, though it has two great scribes in John Jackson Miller (welcome back to Star Wars comics, sir!) and Cavan Scott, and is the much awaited (or dreaded, depending on who you ask) return of the Marvel’s giant green bunny character, Jaxxon.

Canon Novel Review: Last Shot

Last Shot - A Han and Lando Novel Review

– Spoiler Review –

Last Shot, written by Daniel José Older, is a Han and Lando novel which covers distinct, but connected eras of their lives, with very loose ties to Solo: A Star Wars Story mixed in for good measure. Older’s prose is exhilarating, funny, and earnest, capturing Han, Lando, and the various supporting characters in organic, interesting ways, and he manages to keep the focus on the characters while raising the stakes of their adventures, all of which make Last Shot my favorite novel of the new canon since Bloodline. Continue reading “Canon Novel Review: Last Shot”
