Comics With Kenobi #34

The summer has wound done, but the Star Wars comics show no sign of abating. August? It reached a new level, with 10 titles out last month.

This episode has lots of conversation and constructive criticism, along with news you can use, including details about Si Spurrier joining the writing team with Kieron Gillen for Doctor Aphra, as well as Jason Aaron’s dissection of his long run on Marvel’s flagship monthly Star Wars title with SyFy Wire’s Mike Avila.


Given that Gillen is taking over for Aaron with issue 38, we thought it was mighty interesting that Salvador Larroca posted a picture of Benthic Two Tubes from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Of even more interest? His remarks to us via Twitter that he’s got big plans for Benthic in Star Wars.

And don’t forget, this week marks the debut of IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures, so get ready and get your copies. (We’ve got some big plans for this new series. You’ll see.)

Finally, if you haven’t heard it yet, Marvel editor Heather Antos, whose portfolio includes all the Star Wars comics, had a great interview with the Meet Your Maker podcast. Well worth a listen.
