Comics With Kenobi #35

It’s autumn up here in our hemisphere.

While leaves are falling, and the countdown clock is flipping closer and closer to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’re slating our Star Wars thirst with a bevy of Star Wars comics from Marvel and IDW Publishing, as well as a couple of young upstarts from down in central Florida, too.

Written by Matt Owens, with pencils by industry veteran Denys Cowan and inks by Roberto Poggi, colors by GURU-eFX, letters by VC’s Joe Caramagna and edited by Heather Antos, Charles Beacham and Jordan D. White, the series is stylistically different than any previous Star Wars comics outing.

That’s good and bad.
