With Force Friday out of the way, we’ve got a whole load of comics coming our way on Wednesday, September 6. The big game in town is Phasma #1, which begins the tale of how she got out of the trash compactor and survived The Force Awakens. Marvel also brings us Darth Vader #5 and Rogue One #6, the final issue of the movie adaptation.
Two new comics, a trade, and a reprint will be on the comic shelves on Wednesday. That’s Star Wars #33 and Rogue One #4 for the comics, Star Wars Vol. 5: Yoda’s Secret War for the trade, and the second printing of Darth Maul #3.
As for the rest of the month, there are two books on tap for July. Christie Golden’s Battlefront II: Inferno Squadron and Tim Leong’s Star Wars Super Graphic on the 25th. See the more upcoming titles on our book release schedule.
Two new comics and a reprint are coming to your favorite comic venue on Wednesday. Doctor Aphra #8 takes out ‘The Screaming Citadel’ crossover storyline, while Poe Dameron #16 looks deeper into the new villian. The reprint is a weird one: Called Droids Unplugged #1, it reprints shorter material from Poe Dameron #1, Star Wars #25 and Darth Maul #1. Marvel being Marvel, there’s an alternate cover version as well.
It’ll be a big Wednesday for comic fans, with three originals and two reprint collections. For single issues, you have Darth Vader #2, Darth Maul #4 and the Poe Dameron Annual #1 (which also has an alternate cover, naturally.)
Meanwhile, our book release schedule has been updated to reflect some of the Celebration announcements.
This week brings only Darth Maul #2 to comic shops on Wednesday.
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.
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.
Marvel’s next Star Wars miniseries to feature Darth Maul. Written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross, it will be set before The Phantom Menace.
