Out this week: Star Wars, Vader Annual

We’ve got three new comics and an old (very old) trade collection coming on Wednesday, July 18. They’re Star Wars #51, Darth Vader Annual #2, Poe Dameron #29 and the Legends collection The Original Marvel Years Volume 3.

Fans attending San Diego Comic Con later this week have a shot at getting two exclusive editions of Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn: Alliances a few days early. The standard edition will be out on July 24. (We’re also expecting book news out of the con on Friday.)

Marvel’s Poe ongoing ends in September

Marvel’s Poe Dameron ongoing is due to end with issue #31 in September, per that month’s solicitations.

“In this final chapter of the POE DAMERON series, we see what may be BLACK SQUADRON’S last mission, as they desperately attempt to find allies for GENERAL LEIA ORGANA’S decimated RESISTANCE,” the blurb says. So perhaps we’ll see what the “missing” pilots from The Force Awakens were up to during the events of The Last Jedi?

“This is about the story ending in a nice, tidy place based on everything else happening” in Star Wars, writer Charles Soule tweeted.

Star Wars out this week: More of Poe’s TFA adventures

One comic and a trade will be waiting in the comic shops on Wednesday, May 16.

See the preview under the cut. This week’s trade is Poe Dameron Volume 4, collecting #20-25 as well as Annual #1.

Star Wars out this week: Storms of Crait #1

Out this week: Star Wars Adventures, Poe Dameron

There’s plenty for fans to pick up at the comic shops this week. In the shops on Wednesday, November 29 are Star Wars Adventures #4 (with two covers), Jedi of the Republic: Mace Windu #4, Poe Dameron #21, atrade of the Rogue One adaptation, plus Star Wars Insider.

In shops now are Star Wars #39 and the first trade collection of the current Darth Vader series, Imperial March.

One of the more confusing releases lately has been the deluxe edition of Daniel Wallace’s The Rebel Files. It’s available now from Amazon and even has a trailer.

Star Wars out this week: Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra

Two comics and three trades will grace the comic book shelves on Wednesday, November 15. Our new comics are Darth Vader #8 and Doctor Aphra #14. The trades are the complete Captain Phasma, Poe Dameron Volume 3: Legends Lost (collects #7, #14-19) and Rise of the Sith Volume 2, a Legends collection that looks to mostly draw on works set around and during The Phantom Menace.

Oh, and Battlefront II is coming out on Friday, I guess? Or it’s already out for some? I don’t know – games are so very much not my division, so that’s all you’ll get on that from here. (At least until someone does the obligatory roundup post with all the relevant info/clips that may pertain to things we do care about.)
