Out today is Star Wars #32, or part 4 of ‘The Screaming Citadel.’ Head on over to your preferred comic vendor to find out why Han Solo is sporting Twilight-style vampire eyes!
June is pretty slim on book releases, but we do have a handful coming out in July, including the Battlefront II tie-in Inferno Squadron by Christie Golden. It drops July 25. I generally don’t cover games (for my own sanity, and thus yours) but it did drop a gameplay trailer a few days ago. Battlefront II itself will be out in November. (And yeah, I did put it on my personal calendar, so that may very well be the next time I mention it.)
Those looking for brand-new comics have two options this Wednesday: Darth Vader #1 (yes, another one – this time set just after Revenge of the Sith) and Rogue One #3.
There’s also a hardcover collection of Star Wars, Volume 2. It collects Star Wars #15-#25, plus Annual #1, and comes in a David Aja or Terry Dodson cover.
We’ve got two new comics in the shops this week. There’s Star Wars #31, which is also the second part of The Screaming Citadel crossover, plus Poe Dameron #15.
On Wednesday, Marvel launches their second crossover event with The Screaming Citadel #1. The story will continue in Star Wars #31, Doctor Aphra #7, Star Wars #32 and Doctor Aphra #8.
There’s also a new Legends Epic Collection, Rebellion Vol. 2.
If you’ve been holding out for a physical copy of Rogue One, Tuesday is your day for the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital combo pack and DVD. In the book aisle, there’s the latest Star Wars Visual Encyclopedia by Adam Bray, Cole Horton and Tricia Barr. You can get a preview (via our own James) at StarWars.com.
It’s a no-slouch week for comics as well, with Star Wars #30 and Marvel’s Rogue One #1 dropping on Wednesday. In reprints, there’s the A New Hope: Special Edition and a gigantic box set.
Coming Wednesday is Star Wars #29, featuring… Yoda and a rock thing that looks kind of like Thanos? You do you, Marvel.
Tuesday brings Claudia Gray’s Bloodline in paperback. The book gives us some insight into the state of the galaxy not so long before The Force Awakens and was one of the best-reviewed Star Wars novels in years. (I gave it an A-.) Wel worth reading, if you haven’t already.
On Wednesday the comic shops will have Star Wars #28 and Darth Maul #1, the start of Marvel’s latest mini-series.
Our next novel is Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End, out on February 21. Star Wars Books has recently been sharing images of the jacket and finished hardcover. Check out the full schedule on our book release calendar.
This Wednesday, comic fans can pick up Doctor Aphra #3 as well as the fourth trade collection of Marvel’s current Star Wars series, Flight of the Harbinger, which collects issues #20-25.
Our last comics of the year come in Wednesday. Star Wars #26 returns to Obi-Wan’s journals, while a new Legends collection focuses on the Clone Wars.
Say, did you hear, Rogue One tickets went on sale last night?
Wednesday brings the Star Wars Annual #2, which (of course) also comes in a variant cover. There’s also a new hardcover edition of the Revenge of the Sith comic adaptation.
