Comics With Kenobi #35.1: Young Padawans Edition

You wondered, aloud even: “Where’s the discussion about IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures?”

It’s right here!

We were intrigued when IDW, in announcing the new series earlier this year, noted that its stories were aimed at younglings and younglings at heart. After two issues, it’s obvious there’s no better way to explain the delightfully scripted and superbly illustrated stories.

Star Wars: Exposing the World to Me

My relationship with Star Wars has been long and very rewarding. It has taught me lessons in not giving up, of right and wrong, it has given me friends (real and otherwise) who will always be there even if the actors who portray them on screen won’t be. It has even opened up doors to other forms of entertainment that I would not have opened if it hadn’t been for the Wars. Heck even my career choice has been influenced by Star Wars and its story.

Sometimes I forget how many books, movies, and comic books I’ve been exposed to because of my love of Star Wars. So many artists, musical composers, and directors it’s quite staggering. I’m going to try to remember them now and share them with you, starting at when my fandom evolved from a kid and his toys to teenager noticing that there’s more to Star Wars than the funny names and cool spaceships.

Comics With Kenobi #31

Sit down, pour a cup of joe and relax. Be at one with the Force as we discuss all the comics from May — and we mean all of them.

Apologies for the length of this show — it’s more than two-and-a-half hours — but there was a great deal to discuss about the events of (The) Screaming Citadel crossover that’s gone through three of its five chapters in its namesake one-shot, Star Wars No. 31 and issue seven of Star Wars: Doctor Aphra.

(At this rate, our show discussing August’s comics will last three days!)

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.

For Fans Jim Mello and Alex Ray, Their ‘A Star Wars Comic’ Promises New Tales, Intrigue and More Every Month

Among the startling delights of Rogue One: Star Wars Story were the new characters, nearly all of whom perished by the film’s end. Of intriguing interest was Edrio and Benthic Two Tubes, the Tognaths who were among the trusted members of Saw Gerrera’s band of Rebels on Jedha.

While their time on screen was short, it was impressive, but the screenplay allowed for scant detail about the egg mates’ origins, thinking and devotion to the Rebellion.

That’s changed, thanks not to just the assorted books, from the official novel adapting the film or the excellent Rogue One: A Visual Guide.

For Jim Mello and Alex Ray, it wasn’t enough. The pair were so intrigued by Benthic Two Tubes that they seized upon the idea of a six-page comic about the Tognath and, in the process, have created a fan-made ode to not just the character, but to Star Wars, too.

Book Review: Narrative Equality in Star Wars Galactic Maps

Narrative Equality in Star Wars Galactic Maps

Please note, the following article has mild spoilers for several Star Wars canon books and comics, including but not limited to Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, Lords of the Sith, Lost Stars, and Shattered Empire.

The excitement around new Star Wars narratives seems in direct proportion to the narrative weight that we as fans give those stories. A new Star Wars film is typically seen as the pinnacle of storytelling, with the animated television shows coming behind, also with a lot of excitement and media coverage. New novels are a milestone in their own right while comics fizzle in and out. Short stories often find themselves lacking coverage and reference books rarely make a dent. But… entertain me for a minute, as we explore how a particular reference book, Star Wars Galactic Maps by Emil Fortune and Tim McDonagh, a brand new “Illustrated Atlas of the Star Wars Universe,” brings to light elements from all these mediums in one single printed history of the galaxy, providing some narrative equality across all storytelling vehicles.
