    A concise yet informative episode about the decision to shift all-ages Star Wars comics publishing to Dark Horse Comics, which took over Star Wars comics after Marvel's 1977-86 run ended, and published them from 1991-2014 before the license was transferred back to Marvel.Dark Horse will start publishing later in 2022, with it's primary emphasis being on THe High Republic era. It plans to incorporate other stories, specials and one-shots from up and down the Saga timeline, much like IDW has done with Star Wars Adventures.If you're unfamiliar with Dark Horse and Star Wars, Matt did a detailed look at the partnership for Coffee With Kenobi in late 2014, which you can read here: https://bit.ly/3crGl7K.

Cavan Scott and Rachael Stott continue their tail of deception and realization in the pages of The Temple of Monster Peak #3 (of 4).In news, we talk about the fluctuating publishing schedule and what that portends for readers, along with a breakdown of January's comics from Marvel and IDW.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Oct. 27 | War of the Bounty Hunters — IG-88 #1, Darth Vader #17, The Monster of Temple Peak #3 (of 4)Nov. 3 | Star Wars #18, Bounty Hunters #17Nov. 10 | The High Republic #11, Star Wars Legends Boba Fett: Blood Ties TPB (Collects Blood Ties #1-4, Blood Ties — Boba Fett Is Dead 1-4, Empire #7, 28, Boba Fett 1/2, Boba Fett — Twin Engines of Destruction, Boba Fett — Agent of Doom and material from Star Wars Tales #7)Nov. 17 | Doctor Aphra #16, Darth Vader #18, Star Wars Adventures #12, The High Republic Adventures #10, The Monster of Temple Peak #4 (of 4), Darth Vader (Vol. 2) Omnibus (Collects #1-25, Annual #2), The High Republic Adventures (Vol. 1) TPB (Collects #1-5), Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 24 | Star Wars: Life Day #1 (One-Shot), The Trail of Shadows #2 (of 5), Star Wars #19, Bounty Hunters #18, Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021, War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5), War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TPB (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boushh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 30 | Nothing scheduledDec. 1 | Crimson Reign #1 (of 5), The High Republic #12, The High Republic Adventures #11, Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), Vol. 1, “The Light & the Dark” TPB (Collects #1-5)Dec. 8 | Star Wars #20, Bounty Hunters #19, Darth Vader #19, Trail of Shadows #3 (of 5), The High Republic, Vol. 2, “The Heart of Drengir” TPB (Collects #6-10)Dec. 15 | Doctor Aphra #17, The High Republic Adventures Annual 2021, Attack of the Clones Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDW, Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters” TPB (Collects #11-15)Dec. 22 | Star Wars Adventures #13, The Weapon of a Jedi TPB (Collects #1-2), Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-17)Dec. 29 | Bounty Hunters, Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #12-17), Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters,” TPB (Collects #12-18)Jan. 5 | Trail of Shadows #4 (of 5)Jan. 12 | Bounty Hunters #20, Crimson Reign #2, Eye of the Storm #1 (of 2)Jan. 19 | Doctor Aphra #18, The Halcyon Legacy #1 (of 5), The High Republic #13Jan. 26 | The High Republic — Edge of Balance Vol. 2Feb. 9 | Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith Omnibus (Collects Star Wars: Jedi -- The Dark Side #1-5, Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan -- Last Stand on Ord Mantell 1-3, Jedi Council -- Acts of War 1-4, Star Wars (1998) 0-6, Darth Maul 1-4, Episode I: The Phantom Menace 1/2, 1-4, Anakin Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi and material from Star Wars Tales 1, 3, 5, 7, 9-10, 13-14, 20 and 24)Feb. 16 | Star Wars #21March 2 | Star Wars Legends: The Empire Omnibus, Vol. 1 (Collects Republic #78-80, Purge, Purge — Seconds to Die, Purge — The Hidden Blade, Purge — The Tyrant's Fist #1-2, Darth Vader and the Lost Command #1-5, Dark Times #1-17, Dark Times — Blue Harvest #0, Dark Times — Out of the Wilderness #1-5 and Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #1-5)March 16 | Star Wars Legends: Legacy, Vol. 4 ( Collects Legacy (2013) #1-18 and material from Star Wars Tales #19 and Star Wars Visionaries)April 13 | Darth Vader (Vol. 1) Omnibus (New Printing) (Collects #1-25, Annual #1, Vader Down and Star Wars (Vol. 1) 13-14)April 27 | Star Wars (Vol. 2), Omnibus (Vol. 1) New Printing (Collects Star Wars #1-37, Darth Vader (Vol. 1) #15-15, The Screaming Citadel, Doctor Aphra (Vol. 1) #7-8 and Star Wars Annual #1-3)Summer 2002 | The New Republic Vol. 1 Omnibus

    A stitched-together episode -- one that was almost lost to a temperamental computer and timing issues. Jeff and Matt examine the latest tale of Marvel's The High Republic #10, a quick-paced story that sees nods to characters and events from the era's books, while the Ghosts of Vader's Castle mini-series wraps up -- perhaps for good -- with issue #5 that sees an unlikely spectral savior.Star Wars Adventures #11 brings the first part of a two-part Rogue Squadron tale that had Matt far too excited for his own good, while the backup story focus on Ree-Yees and why it's never a good career move to do anything for Jabba the Hutt.As for news, we examine the notion that Crimson Reign is likely to be a crossover event when it kicks off, as well as the latest publishing delays.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Oct. 27 | War of the Bounty Hunters — IG-88 #1, Darth Vader #17, The Monster of Temple Peak #3 (of 4)Nov. 3 | Star Wars #18, Bounty Hunters #17, The High Republic #11, Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith OmnibusNov. 10 | Doctor Aphra #16, The Trail of Shadows #2 (of 5), The Monster of Temple Peak #4 (of 4), Star Wars Legends Boba Fett: Blood Ties TPBNov. 17 | Darth Vader #18, Star Wars Adventures #12, Star Wars: Life Day #1 (One-Shot), The High Republic Adventures #10, Darth Vader (Vol. 2) Omnibus, The High Republic Adventures (Vol. 1) TPB, Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18), Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 24 | Star Wars #19, Bounty Hunters #18, Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021, War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5), War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TPB (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boushh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 30 | Star Wars: The High Republic, Vol. 2, TPB (Collects #6-10), Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #11-15)Dec. 1 |) Crimson Reign #1 (of 5), The High Republic #12, The High Republic Adventures #11, Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), Vol. 1, “The Light & the Dark” TPBDec. 8 | Star Wars #20, Bounty Hunters #19, Darth Vader #19, Trail of Shadows #3 (of 5), Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters,” TPB, The High Republic, Vol. 2, “The Heart of Drengir” TPBDec. 15 | Doctor Aphra #17, The High Republic Adventures Annual 2021, Attack of the Clones Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDW, Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters” TPBDec. 22 | Star Wars Adventures #13, The Weapon of a Jedi TPB, Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-17)Dec. 29 | Bounty Hunters, Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #12-17)Jan. 5 | Trail of Shadows #4 (of 5)March 2 | Star Wars Legends: The Empire Omnibus, Vol. 1April 13 | Darth Vader (Vol. 1) Omnibus (New Printing)April 27 | Star Wars (Vol. 2), Omnibus (Vol. 1) New PrintingSummer 2002 | The New Republic Vol. 1 Omnibus

    This week it's Jeff flying solo while Matt tends to Matt-type MATTers (See what we did there?). First up is Star Wars Adventures in which we get the thrilling conclusion of the saga of the ancient vengeful spirits....or are they? Following that is a backup involving bratty kids, oversized Jawas, a mysterious amulet, and Jeff's favorite: SPIDERS.Following that, Jeff takes a look at issue 2 of Ghosts of Vader's Castle and we find out just what happens when a 6-foot rabbit and a 7 1/2 foot Wookie get cross with one another. Oh, and they're also actually closer to 50 feet tall each. This continues to be a fun series that we can't get enough of.Rounding out the week's books is Marvel's lone offering: Star Wars #17. Luke and Vader trade blows while Lando and Chewie try to get the Falcon back up and running after a seismic charge delayed their pursuit of Han Solo. Lando reconnects with the ship (and himself) in an unexpected and wholly satisfying way.Fear not, Matt will return next week to keep Jeff from mispronouncing names!Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Sept. 29 | Star Wars #17, Star Wars Adventures #10, Ghosts of Vader's Castle #2 (of 5), The High Republic #8 (2nd Printing), War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (2nd Printing)Oct. 6 | Star Wars Adventures: Smuggler's Run TPB, The High Republic Adventures #9, Ghosts of Vader's Castle #3 (of 5)Oct. 13 | War of the Bounty Hunters #5 (of 5), Doctor Aphra #15, The High Republic — Trail of Shadows #1 (of 5), Ghosts of Vader's Castle #4 (of 5), The High Republic #1 (Halloween Extravaganza 2021)Oct. 20 | Ghosts of Vader's Castle #5 (of 5), Star Wars Adventures #11, War of the Bounty Hunters — IG-88 #1, Darth Vader (Vol. 2) Omnibus, Darth Vader #17, The High Republic #10Oct. 27 | Star Wars #18, Bounty Hunters #17, The Monster of Temple Peak #3 (of 4)Nov. 3 | The High Republic #11, The High Republic Adventures #10, Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith OmnibusNov. 10 | Doctor Aphra #16, The Monster of Temple Peak #4 (of 4), The Trail of Shadows #2 (of 5), Star Wars Legends Boba Fett: Blood Ties TPB, The High Republic Adventures, Vol. 1, TPB, Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 17 | Darth Vader #18, Star Wars: Life Day #1, Star Wars Adventures #12, Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18)Nov. 24 | Star Wars #19, Bounty Hunters #18, Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021, War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5), War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TPB (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boushh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 30 | Star Wars: The High Republic, Vol. 2, TPB (Collects #6-10), Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #11-15)Dec. 1 | Star Wars: Crimson Reign #1 (of 5), The High Republic Adventures #11, Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), Vol. 1, “The Light & the Dark” TPBDec. 8 | Darth Vader #19, The High Republic #12, Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters,” TPB, Attack of the Clones Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDWDec. 15 | Bounty Hunters #19, Trail of Shadows #3 (of 5), The High Republic Adventures Annual 2021, Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters” TPB, The High Republic, Vol. 2, “The Heart of Drengir” TPBDec. 22 | Doctor Aphra #17, Star Wars Adventures #13, Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-17)Dec. 29 | Star Wars #20, Bounty Hunters, Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #12-17)Jan. 5 | Trail of Shadows #4 (of 5), The High Republic #13March 2 | Star Wars Legends: The Empire Omnibus, Vol. 1April 13 | Darth Vader (Vol. 1) Omnibus (New Printing)April 27 | Star Wars Jason Aaron Omnibus (New Printing)

    We're returning to Vader's castle on Mustafar for the fourth outing of IDW's spooky Star Wars stories, thanks to Cavan Scott, Francesco Francavilla, Megan Levens, Charlie Kirchoff and Shawn Lee, in a story that brings Milo and Lina Graf, along with Padme and Anakin. It's a genuinely creepy tale that combines The Thing with Dawn of the Dead and, frankly, we want more, more, more! (Thank goodness it's a weekly five-issue mini-series!)In Bounty Hunters #16, we see Valance and Dengar's efforts to deal with Boba Fett from another angle, yet more importantly, the importance of Cadelah, she who could unite the Broken Hand and Mourner's Wail, vastly expands as foundations are built for events in the upcoming Crimson Reign five-issue mini-series set for release in December. It's a weighty issue, filled with flashbacks and more, but worth the effort. (Though it would have benefitted immensely from the use of editor's notes here and there to ease the reader forward).In news, the only topic is the report, as yet unverified, that Disney/Lucasfilm has pulled the Star Wars license from IDW Publishing. We break down what it may mean for Star Wars Adventures and the slate of The High Republic Adventures titles, as well as what may come. It's nebulous and uncertain, but we're optimistic.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Sept. 29 | Star Wars #17, Star Wars Adventures #10, Ghosts of Vader's Castle #2 (of 5), The High Republic #8 (2nd Printing), War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (2nd Printing)Oct. 6 | Star Wars Adventures: Smuggler's Run TPB, The High Republic — Trail of Shadows #1 (of 5), The High Republic Adventures #9, War of the Bounty Hunters #5 (of 5), Ghosts of Vader's Castle #3 (of 5)Oct. 13 | Doctor Aphra #15, War of the Bounty Hunters — IG-88 #1, Ghosts of Vader's Castle #4 (of 5), The High Republic #1 (Halloween Extravaganza 2021)Oct. 20 | Ghosts of Vader's Castle #5 (of 5), Star Wars Adventures #11, Darth Vader (Vol. 2) Omnibus, Darth Vader #17, The High Republic #10Oct. 27 | Star Wars #18, Bounty Hunters #17, The Monster of Temple Peak #3 (of 4)Nov. 3 | The High Republic #11, The High Republic Adventures #10, Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith OmnibusNov. 10 | Doctor Aphra #16, The Monster of Temple Peak #4 (of 4), The Trail of Shadows #2 (of 5), Star Wars Legends Boba Fett: Blood Ties TPB, The High Republic Adventures, Vol. 1, TPB, Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 17 | Darth Vader #18, Star Wars: Life Day #1, Star Wars Adventures #12, Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18)Nov. 24 | Star Wars #19, Bounty Hunters #18, Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021, War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5), War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TPB (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boushh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 30 | Star Wars: The High Republic, Vol. 2, TPB (Collects #6-10), Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #11-15)Dec. 1 | Star Wars: Crimson Reign #1 (of 5), The High Republic Adventures #11, Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), Vol. 1, “The Light & the Dark” TPBDec. 8 | Darth Vader #19, The High Republic #12, Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters,” TPB, Attack of the Clones Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDWDec. 15 | Bounty Hunters #19, Trail of Shadows #3 (of 5), The High Republic Adventures Annual 2021, Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters” TPB, The High Republic, Vol. 2, “The Heart of Drengir” TPBDec. 22 | Doctor Aphra #17, Star Wars Adventures #13, Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-17)Dec. 29 | Star Wars #20, Bounty Hunters, Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #12-17)Jan. 5 | Trail of Shadows #4 (of 5), The High Republic #13March 2 | Star Wars Legends: The Empire Omnibus, Vol. 1April 13 | Darth Vader (Vol. 1) Omnibus (New Printing)April 27 | Star Wars Jason Aaron Omnibus (New Printing)

    The backstory behind Boushh takes center stage in the pages of War of the Bounty Hunters -- Boushh #1, a one-shot tie-in to the crossover event that lays the foundation for a potential mini-series or, at the very least, more stories to come in the upcoming Crimson Reign five-issue mini. It's a deftly written, lushly illustrated story about Boushh and four more Ubese, as well as a deeper dive into Domina Tagge, too, a character whose manipulations have been threading through the second volume of Doctor Apha. In Darth Vader #16, Greg Pak's exploration of Vader's pursuit of Skywalker is given another vantage point as Luke gamely tries to draw out his father's attention so that Leia, Lando and Chewie can make an honest push at rescuing Han Solo before he's taken to the SSD Eexecutor. While portions of the issue may seem familiar (if you've read the previous issues of Star Wars and WotBH, they are), it provides a telling base for Ochi's devotion to Vader and Sly Moore's to Palpatine.In The High Republic-era The Monster of Temple Peak #2, Ty Yorick gains an almost padawan, despite her efforts not to, as the lushly illustrated mini-series that should have been released as a graphic novel (as it was suppose to be) moves forward in its storytelling.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Sept. 22 | Ghosts of Vader's Castle #1 (of 5), Bounty Hunters #16, Star Wars: Rebels, Vol. 2 (Manga)Sept. 29 | Star Wars #17, Star Wars Adventures #10, Ghosts of Vader's Castle #2 (of 5), The High Republic #8 (2nd Printing), War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (2nd Printing)Oct. 6 | Star Wars Adventures: Smuggler's Run TPB, The High Republic — Trail of Shadows #1 (of 5), The High Republic Adventures #9, War of the Bounty Hunters #5 (of 5), Ghosts of Vader's Castle #3 (of 5)Oct. 13 | Star Wars #18, Doctor Aphra #15, War of the Bounty Hunters — IG-88 #1, Ghosts of Vader's Castle #4 (of 5), The High Republic #1 Halloween ExtravaganzaOct. 20 | Ghosts of Vader's Castle #5 (of 5), Star Wars Adventures #11, Darth Vader (Vol. 2) Omnibus, Darth Vader #17, The High Republic #10Oct. 27 | Bounty Hunters #17, The Monster of Temple Peak #3 (of 4)Nov. 3 | The High Republic #11, The High Republic Adventures #10, Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith OmnibusNov. 10 | Doctor Aphra #16, The Monster of Temple Peak #4 (of 4), The Trail of Shadows #2 (of 5), Star Wars Legends Boba Fett: Blood Ties TPB, The High Republic Adventures, Vol. 1, TPB, Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 17 | Darth Vader #18, Star Wars: Life Day #1, Star Wars Adventures #12, Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18)Nov. 24 | Star Wars #19, Bounty Hunters #18, Star Wars Adventures Annual 2021, War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5), War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TPB (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boushh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 30 | Star Wars: The High Republic, Vol. 2, TPB (Collects #6-10), Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #11-15)Dec. 1 | Star Wars: Crimson Reign #1 (of 5) Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), Vol. 1, “The Light & the Dark” TPBDec. 8 | Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters,” TPB, Attack of the Clones Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDWDec. 15 | Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, “War of the Bounty Hunters” TPB, The High Republic, Vol. 2, “The Heart of Drengir” TPBDec. 22 | Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-17)Dec. 29 | Bounty Hunters, Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #12-17)March 2 | Star Wars Legends: The Empire Omnibus, Vol. 1April 13 | Darth Vader (Vol. 1) Omnibus (New Printing)

    It's a pair of pivotal issues from Marvel while IDW's Luke Skywalker-centric The Weapon of a Jedi concludes with a satisfying ending. In Star Wars Adventures #5, which we reviewed in episode #240, a new pair of creative teams proffers entertaining stories about Anakin and Padme and what passes for mentorship in th Empire, at least if you're Wilhuff Tarkin.The High Republic #6 launches a new arc and sees the arrival of artist Georges Jeanty and inker Karl Story. It's a pivotal issue, setting the stage for the arc to come and, we dare say, some intriguing tie-ins to events that writer Cavan Scott revealed in his audiodrama "Dooku: Jedi Lost." Doctor Aphra #11 brings the return of the bounty hunter Durge, but is it the last time we'll see him? Hard to tell with a being that's hard to kill. The issue meshes nicely with the War of the Bounty Hunters crossover event, yet also sets the stage for events to come within the Aphra series itself.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:July 7Bounty Hunters #14Star Wars Adventures #6Star Wars Legends: The Old Republic Omnibus Vol. 1July 14Doctor Aphra #12War of the Bounty Hunters #2 (of 5)The Phantom Menace Graphic Novel Adaptation (IDW)July 21The High Republic Adventures #6Star Wars Adventures #7Darth Vader #14War of the Bounty Hunters — Jabba the Hutt #1 (One-Shot)July 28Star Wars #15Star Wars Adventures #7The High Republic #7Aug. 4Star Wars Adventures #8Bounty Hunters #15War of the Bounty Hunters: 4-LOM & Zuckuss #1 (One-Shot)Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Marvel Years, Vol. 5 TPBAug. 11The High Republic #8War of the Bounty Hunters #3 (of 5)The Monster of Temple Peak #1 (of 4)The High Republic, Vol. 1, “There Is No Fear” TPBDoctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 2, “The Engine Job” TPBAug. 14 (Free Comic Book Day)Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Free Comic Book Day IssueThe High Republic: The Edge of Balance/Guardians of the Whills FCBD IssueAug. 18Star Wars Adventures #9Star Wars #16The High Republic Adventures #7Aug. 25Darth Vader #15Doctor Aphra #13Sept. 1Star Wars Adventures #10The High Republic Adventures #8Doctor Aphra #14The High Republic #9Sept. 8The High Republic: Edge of Balance (Manga)The Monster of Temple Peak #2 (of 4)War of the Bounty Hunters #4 (of 5)Sept. 15Darth Vader #16War of the Bounty Hunters — Boushh #1Star Wars Adventures: Smuggler's Run TPBSept. 22Ghosts of Vader's Castle #1 (of 5)Bounty Hunters #16Sept. 29Star Wars #17Ghosts of Vader's Castle #2 (of 5)Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), “The Light & the Dark” TPBOct. 20Darth Vader (Vol. 2) OmnibusOct. 26Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-16)Oct. 27Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 3Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith OmnibusNov. 9War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5)War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TPB (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boushh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 10Star Wars Legends Boba Fett: Blood Ties TPBThe High Republic Adventures, Vol. 1, TPBNov. 16Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18)Nov. 23Bounty Hunters, Vol. 3, TPB (Collectings #12-17)Nov. 30Star Wars: The High Republic, Vol. 2, TPB (Collects #6-10)Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 3, TPB (Collects #11-15)Dec. 7Attack of the Clones Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDW

    No new Star Wars comics out this week, yet that doesn't mean we've got nothing to discuss.This week's episode is an interview with Andrew Winegarner who took it upon himself to adapt the leaked script for Star Wars IX by dismissed director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly. Winegarner hasn't held back, delivering six issues of the seven-issue adaptation (the final issue is on its way), telling a story that feels natural and, as Jeff put it, "very much like a Star Wars story."The comic can be read online (https://bit.ly/39subuu) and its time well spent.

    It's a rare treat to get a one-and-done story in any comic these days, yet that's exactly what we have in the pages of Marvel's Star Wars (Vol. 3) #12, as Leia Organa and Kes Dameron recount to each other how they fell in love with Shara Bey and Han Solo.It's a well-paced issue that lets Charles Soule revisit, in a sense, the ties between Poe Dameron and Gen. Organa in his Poe Dameron series, while also adding more background to the relationship between Poe's parents. It concludes nicely, setting the stage for the next chapter in the "Operation Starlight Arc."In news, we discuss recently announced plans for omnibus collections featuring Darth Vader (Vol. 2) as well as the Legends-era Rise of the Sith that collects several mini-series and stories published by Dark Horse Comics.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:March 17_ Bounty Hunters #10_ Star Wars Adventures #4_ The High Republic #1 (4th Printing)March 24

    Anytime a Star Wars comic pairs Doctor Aphra and Sana Starros you know it's going to be laden with action, verbal sparring and some simmering tension. Doctor Aphra #7 is no exception, with new artist Minkyu Jung's illustrations, inked by Victor Olazaba and colored by Rachelle Rosenberg, providing some fluid and intense detail. Coupled with Joe Caramagna's lettering that bring Alyssa Wong's script to life, and it's a rollicking story with a helluva cliffhanger.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Jan. 27

    We thought it apt for our final episode of 2020 to end the year by looking forward to 2021 and the upcoming Star Wars event, The High Republic, in a wide ranging yet remarkably spoiler-free interview with artist Harvey Tolibao (https://twitter.com/harveytolibao/), who's illustrating IDW's The High Republic Adventures.Tolibao talks about how he was tapped to illustrate the IDW series, his excitement and how he's adapting to being involved in this next major step for Star Wars. We also delve into his comics history, efforts at education and outreach, his studio (www.behance.net/htmstudios) and the rich history of Filipino creatives and comics.It's no secret that Lucasfilm and Disney's High Republic Era is poised to launch a new epoch of Star Wars storytelling. The effort is taking root across books, short stories, novellas and of course comics, with two separate yet interlinked titles from Marvel (Star Wars: The High Republic starting Jan. 6) and IDW (Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures starting Feb. 3).Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Jan. 6_ Star Wars #10_ Star Wars: The High Republic #1
