Comics With Kenobi Issue #18 (188)

We’re back for this month’s issue and what a collection of Star Wars comics that Matt Moore and Jeff McGee have to fuss about and discuss! And phone books. Lots of phone books. (OK, not so much the phone books.)

But before we do that, our heartfelt thanks to all who cast their votes for us in the literature category in the first Star Wars Podcast Awards. While we didn’t win, your listening to our show, interacting with us on Twitter and enjoying the shared experience of talking about Star Wars comics is what keeps us coming back every month, and then some.

Now, enough with the sentimentality!

We waited. Then we waited some more. Then we waited even more.

December? No. January? Nope. February? March? Maybe. What about April? OK, yes. For real this time. Read more

Comics With Kenobi Issue #16 (177)

It’s an episode focused on endings and beginnings as one series concludes, but another launches with great acclaim and public fanfare. It’s also one of trials and tribulation, hence some technical difficulties (we blame the First Order.)

It’s been awhile, but not as long as the wait for Episode VIII is going to be.

Still, it was worth it, given co-hosts Matt Moore and Jeff McGee dive into the comics released since our last issue back in January. (Has it really been almost a month?) and also examine the final sales estimates for comics in 2015, as compiled by John Jackson Miller at his Comichron website.

Vader’s down and on the ground, but seems to be holding his own, while Han and Aphra are knocking about like a Galactic version of the Three Stooges. On Coruscant, comics readers get a first-hand glimpse into deep-cover Rebel espionage and learn Emperor Palpatine handles all his own PR. Seriously!

Vader is down, but actually Darth Vader is really up. So far up that all the hype surrounding the six-issue crossover IS worth it! He’s also amazingly lethal and so precise that it’s scary. Sidious plus Dooku plus Darth Maul plus Kylo Ren scary.

This time it’s really issue 10 and we’re three-fifths of the way through Chewbacca and seeing some solid character development for our favorite walking carpet and learning even more about some of our favorite characters and how they deal with adversity.

Comics With Kenobi Issue # 9 (141)

For issue nine — not 10, we swear it — things get deep as we discuss the conclusion of Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens — Shattered Empire, noting not just its role in leading up to The Force Awakens, but how it exemplifies a shift in attitude toward major female characters not named Princess Leia or Mon Mothma, that being that they not just survive, but appear to thrive.
