Comics With Kenobi #36

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.

As for news? We’re moving house! OK, not literally moving but starting later this month we’ll be moving to our own feed that you’ll be able to find on iTunes, Stitcher, BlogTalk Radio and so many more. Be sure to follow our Twitter feed for more details and the actual move date, but it’s coming sooner than you expect.
