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!
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.
Marvel’s Star Wars comics for May feature a bounty of reprinted first issues — including Droids and the 1977 Star Wars #1 — for just a buck each to celebrate May the 4th Day, along with the second issue of Poe Dameron, the final issue of the Obi-Wan and Anakin mini-series and ongoing adventures in Star Wars and Darth Vader.
From Princess Leia marshaling her friends and comrades to Darth Vader unleashing his dark fury, February’s chill is likely to be offset by the heat from Marvel’s Star Wars comics amid the days and nights of winter’s cold.
Star Wars fans will have a rich bounty of stories in December, and that’s just Marvel’s comics (then here’s also that film, The Force Awakens, out Dec. 18). From Chewbacca to Kanan, there’s confrontation and conflict, as the characters continue forward in the tapestry that will become their history and the Saga’s canon. (See all the covers after the jump.)
