Comics With Kenobi #28

February was a light month for Star Wars yet remained a critical moment for the entire line, with stories in Star Wars: Poe Dameron 11, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra 4 and Star Wars 29 holding true to ongoing storylines that keep pace with expanding the Saga’s character development and exploration of events before the events of the prequel trilogies and the original trilogies, along with ahead of events in The Force Awakens.

We’ve also got a special guest this issue, artist Mike Mayhew, whose work on the vaunted one-shot Obi-Wan Kenobi stories in Marvel’s flagship Star Wars monthly (we dubbed them Obi-Wan Shots) gave readers new insight into not just the last of the Jedi Knights’ time on Tatooine, but an edifying and entertaining glimpse into Luke Skywalker, too.

We’re two years in and then some in this grand experiment of Marvel’s Star Wars comics. We have to admit, it’s been a heck of a run.

Listen to the show here.

We interview with comic creators Alex Ray and Jim Mello. The artist and writer from Florida created A Star Wars Comic, a monthly fan-made comic that takes readers — in just six pages — deeper into the Star Wars head canon.

It’s never easy losing a friend, an idol, an icon. The loss of Carrie Fisher is one we won’t forget and will feel, acutely, through 2017 and beyond.

It’s among the reasons this episode starts somber, and for good reason, but we never lose sight of the hope that Star Wars brings its legion of fans and the community that has built itself up around the Saga.

So much we even had to include an issue from December, too, to be sure we got them all.

How many? Six. Just like the original trilogy plus the prequel trilogy.

We’re live from Takodana! (Sort of.) We’re at the same issue as the monthly Star Wars comic! (For now.) We’re also talking comics! Five of them, to be exact, and in a rare convergence, Jeff McGee and Matt Moore liked them. For real. A lot.

We’re really flying Solo this episode. Seriously. No lie. Why? Because the first issue of Star Wars: Han Solo came out and we read it. Know what else we read? Everything. If it was a Marvel Star Wars comic and it came out in June, Matt Moore and Jeff McGee read it. It’s true. All of it.
