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.

Princess Leia, an R2-D2 Adventure, But No Replacement for Darth Vader When November’s Marvel Star Wars Comics Are Released

Star Wars Annual #2

Plenty of Princess Leia, more adventures with Poe Dameron, SCAR Troopers vs. the Rebel Alliance and Rey faces down Kylo Ren as November’s Star Wars comics feature a bounty of new tales and continuing adventures, along with a brand new R2-D2 tale by Chris Eliopoulos.

The only thing missing? No replacement, yet, for the about to conclude Star Wars: Darth Vader as fans await — with eagerness and a hint of impatience — word on a third ongoing monthly series, not to mention a mini-series to replace the adaptation of The Force Awakens.

We know something’s coming down the space lanes, thanks to Marvel assistant editor Heather Antos, who tweeted Aug. 18 that she was “Starting a pretty awesome new Star Wars project tomorrow. I’m really excited for this one!”

So, too, are comics fans. Until then, there’s plenty of Star Wars tales to be told and read.

This Shattered Empire Cover for the Marvel Comics Mini-Series is Nothing Short of Stunning

We’re big fans of variant covers for Marvel’s array of Star Wars comics. While some of them are out of most people’s price range, many aren’t and often provide new and different takes on the Saga’s characters, new and not so new.

MikeMayhewShatteredEmpireVariantThe latest, a variant by Mike Mayhew, whose work on Dark Horse ComicsThe Star Wars is truly a sight to behold, has surpassed that bar. It’s a cover for the upcoming Star Wars: Journey to The Force Awakens: Shattered Empire four-issue mini-series written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Marco Checchetto, which starts Sept. 9.


Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the series helps set the stage for what happened after the destruction of Palpatine, the death of Darth Vader and how the Empire and Rebellion advanced their causes.

Mayhew’s work bears repeated viewings as there are so many elements to be experienced. See for yourself after the jump in all its large-size goodness.
