Comics With Kenobi #38

It’s an extra-special special episode as we sit down with Alex Ray and Jim Mello, co-creators of the wildly popular and strikingly imaginative A Star Wars Comic to mark the completion of a year’s worth of stories and tales from a galaxy far, far away in our respective head canon.

For us, it’s been a shared road, given our love for Star Wars comics. It was in January 2017 that we spoke with them ahead of the first comic and having Jim and Alex’s effort has been exceedingly satisfying month in and month out.

They’ve taken us — and you — from one end of the Star Wars galaxy to another, introducing new characters alongside with old favorites.

Comics With Kenobi #37

Plenty to be thankful for when it came to Marvel’s November slate of Star Wars comics, including a pair of double-dips for the Star Wars and Darth Vader series. Reading Poe Dameron gave us all kinds of feels, especially if you harbor affection for not just Leia Organa, but Padme Amidala.

Views, news and reviews as Jeff McGee and Matt Moore tackle October’s prodigious output of Star Wars comics from Marvel Entertainment.

Plenty of hits, some misses, but definitely a full complement far-reaching stories that continue to add to the complex layers of characters we’ve been following for years, if not decades, along with some careful consideration about events between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Rebels, along with happenings between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.

Comics With Kenobi #30

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 6along 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.
