Comics With Kenobi #29

March came in like a lion but didn’t end like a lamb, at least not in the pages of Marvel’s Star Wars comics, that’s for certain.

Join us we take a deep dive into the latest issues of Star Wars: Darth Maul #2, Star Wars: Poe Dameron #12 and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #5. We’re also looking ahead to Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, too, with details about the Coffee With Kenobi Podcast meet-up, panels that are focused on Star Wars comics along with pertinent details about what you can get from us, cheap as free, if you’re going to the big event.

Our chief question? What will Celebration mean for Marvel’s Star Wars comics? We don’t know, yet, but one thing’s for certain: Don’t stop believing.

The Caffeinated Collector: Episode 32 – Good Expectations. Not Great, But Good…

We’re just a few short weeks away from Celebration Orlando!!! Can you feel it? I can feel it. It feels….good. This will be my second Celebration, and it will be VERY hard to top the experience I had in Anaheim in 2015. It was, quite honestly, one of the best times I have ever had in my life. Meeting friends IRL for the first time, making new friends that I’m going to get to see again, eating good food, and being immersed in Star Wars for 4 days was kind of my own version of Heaven. Can I expect the same sort of thrill this time out? Probably not. But that’s ok…

Truly Wonderful, the Memories of Star Wars Celebration Are!

As I sit down to write this, there are only 25 days left until Star Wars Celebration Orlando!  My, how time flies. It feels like just yesterday we were getting the news on starwars.com that the next celebration would be in Orlando – once again, I’m overwhelmed with a whirlwind of emotions. No worries, at this point I’m a veteran of Star Wars Celebrations as this one will mark my fourth Force-tastic adventure of being immersed in the galaxy far, far away. In other words, all is right in the world.

And so, in light of Star Wars Celebration, I thought it would be fitting to share some of my past celebration experiences with all of you. Hopefully you’ll find some joy in my personal stories and maybe you’ll even learn something about me you didn’t already know. Ready. Set. Go!

The Star Wars Party is Just Beginning

NEW Scott Saber Strikes

In just a couple of weeks, I, and other Star Wars fans, will be hitting up the stores to see all of the new Star Wars merchandise. A few weeks after that, I’ll be sitting down to watch the second season of Star Wars Rebels. As I watch the show, I’ll be counting down the days before I see The Force Awakens in theaters. Finally, as all of this is going on, I’ll be hoping to go to the first Season of the Force event at the Disney parks (to hold me over for a few years before Star Wars Land opens).

I’m still pinching myself.

Star Wars Celebration VII Anaheim Experience – Epiblog 1 – “We’re home”

CWK Logo 2Well hello CWK and Star Wars Fans! It has certainly been an exciting couple of weeks for Star Wars Fans. Somewhere around 100,000 of us flocked to Anaheim, California for the amazing Star Wars Celebration VII. I could go on for days about my experience, but I’m going to break it up into Epiblogs. If that’s not a word yet, I claim it.

Did you happen to see any good trailers lately? Well, if you were lucky like us you got to see it (twice) at Star Wars Celebration VII Anaheim! For those of you that couldn’t make it, hopefully you were streaming it live. What a great way to share the Celebration experience. Once they announced the simulcast I was so happy for the fans that couldn’t make it. Another great aspect was getting to sleep a little later. I knew we didn’t have to get there at the crack of dawn to get in line to see JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy open the event. With 11 San Diego Comic Cons and 1 Celebration (IV) under our belts, we have come to be OK with arriving closer to opening of 10:00. If we couldn’t get into the live room, we could get into a simulcast room. If we didn’t get into a simulcast room, we could watch it on our phones. No worries.

The Fangirl Impact on Star Wars Celebration

Scott Murray's Star Wars Blog

Scott Murray's Star Wars Blog

Even though I didn’t get to see everything at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, I was very pleased with what I saw, heard and experienced. I enjoyed being there as a fan and sharing the experience as part of my coverage for Assembly of Geeks.

Now that the convention is over, I’ve had a few moments to reflect on what I witnessed and reported. Obviously, major events like the new trailer for The Force Awakens and the Season 2 premiere of Star Wars Rebels easily stand out. However, there was also a certain theme that stood out for me:

The presence and plight of the Star Wars fangirl.
