Two comics and a brand-new Insider are heading to the shelves on Wednesday, July 19. Darth Maul #5 ends the latest miniseries, while Poe Dameron #17 takes Black Squadron back into action. Star Wars Insider #174 jumps in with a Finn feature.
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.)
Tuesday is a big Rogue One day for releases, with two brand-new novels for younger readers. Beth Revis’ Rebel Rising is about Jyn Erso, while Greg Rucka’s Guardians of the Whills gives us some backstory on Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus. There’s also the paperback edition of James Luceno’s Catalyst, which gives us some background on Galen Erso and Orson Krennic, and first came out before the movie.
It also happens to be the first week of May, which means May 4 is Thursday. We expect plenty of puns, some sales, and a movie marathon on TBS. Fair warning: Traditionally this has not been a huge day for news, so don’t get your hopes too high.
