Star Wars #38

– Spoiler Review –

With Star Wars #38, Kieron Gillen (of Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra fame) takes over the reigns of the mainline series from Jason Aaron. His first stop as the new writer? “The Ashes of Jedha,” revisiting the titular planet after it’s destruction in Rogue One, further mashing up the film with the Original Trilogy.

A Star Wars Anthology Story: Retrospective on Jason Aaron’s Star Wars Comic Run (#1-37)

Since Marvel’s new beginnings with the Star Wars license, the Star Wars mainline series has been the backbone of the comics, providing adventurous tales about the Big Three: Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo. At the helm of the series since the start has been writer Jason Aaron, who has taken us on anthology-lite arcs of story between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, filling in what’s becoming quite the crowded era.

And after 37 issues, stretching from January 2015 to October 2017, Jason Aaron’s run has come to an end. Having read the series since its inception, it’s time now to look back at Aaron’s legacy as this retrospective discusses what I feel has been the good, the bad, and the in-between of his nearly three year run.

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”
