April proved a pivotal month for Star Wars comics.
From the first issue of Marvel’s Rogue One adaptation, which provided some context and details not seen in the film, to the conclusion of story arcs in Star Wars 30 and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra 6, along with the passing of a beloved member of the Resistance’s Black Squadron in Star Wars: Poe Dameron 13, there was plenty of pathos and high adventure to be had.
Co-hosts Matt Moore and Jeff McGee were suitably impressed with Star Wars: Darth Maul 3, which continued to build nuanced layer after nuanced layer on a Zabrak who began life seemingly as a throwaway character, but has grown to become one of the Star Wars Saga’s most enduring and utterly complex characters.
Also featured on this month’s episode? The debut of the new Facebook page (hello, 2012!), reminiscing about Star Wars Celebration Orlando (no wrist bands needed for that portion of the show) and Jeff’s short chat with the director of the Starlight Foundation, a charity that works to bring fun and hope to hospitalized children. The Starlight Foundation sponsored Jeff’s trip to Celebration.
