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.
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
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.)
Co-hosts Jeff McGee and Matt Moore dive into all five Marvel Star Wars comics titles, including the just-released first issue of Star Wars: Poe Dameron, as well as the now ended Kanan’s 12th and final issue.
We took advantage of the extra day this year to read some more Star Wars comics. Now, we’re talking about them! Are you? Then let’s do it together, why don’t we.
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.
After a holiday break — and a momentous distraction at the cinema — the Star Wars stories in Marvel’s comics are calling to us again and are they ever loud! (Have you felt it?)
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!
