IDW Publishing makes a strong debut with the first of its five-issue Star Wars: Forces of Destiny series, while in the pages of Marvel’s flagship Star Wars monthly, Luke Skywalker’s bright light dims as he tackles a very real vestige of the dark side on the Jedha moon in issue 41 of Star Wars.
This review of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny — Leia contains minor spoilers.
There was real excitement when IDW Publishing revealed in 2017 it would be carrying over the stories from the popular series of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny animated shorts into its own five-issue comics series.
The inaugural issue, with its focus on Princess Leia, doesn’t disappoint.
Read on to find out more about January’s IDW Star Wars comics, including creative teams and more.
There’s no sophomore slump for IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures #2.
In fact, the second outing in two weeks for the new series is just as good as the debut issue, proving without doubt that an all-ages Star Wars comic is not just viable, but vivacious.
Issue two, like the first, sports a main story and a backup tale from Wild Space. Both are equally charming, splendidly paced and adroitly written and illustrated.
This issue also marks a milestone, too, with artist Elsa Charretier making her comics writing debut, co-scripting the Tales From Wild Space backup “The Flat Mountain of Yavin” with Pierrick Colinet.
