It’s time for another Journey to The Last Jedi entry. This Tuesday, October 31, brings Ken Liu’s The Legends of Luke Skywalker. (Not that kind of Legends… I think.) Then on Wednesday, November 1, it’s time for Darth Vader #7.
Coming from Marvel on Wednesday, October 18 we have Captain Phasma #4 and Poe Dameron #20. Meanwhile, IDW drops Star Wars Adventures #3 and the series’ first trade collection. And from Titan, there’s Star Wars Insider #176.
This week brings two new books and three comics. Del Rey’s 40th Anniversary anthology From a Certain Point of View is out Tuesday, October 3. It features 40 short stories from 42 authors, all set during A New Hope. Also out Tuesday is William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken by Ian Doescher.
Just one comic this week: Coming Wednesday, September 27 is Mace Windu: Jedi of the Republic #2.
The rush is over – for now – and only a handful of brand new comics are out this Wednesday, September 13. Star Wars #36 and Doctor Aphra #12 are gracing shelves, although there are also second printings of Darth Vader #3 and #4.
It’s only a temporary relapse, though. Del Rey will next strain your wallet for their From a Certain Point of View anthology on October 3, and there’s plenty more coming in the run-up to The Last Jedi.
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.
Because this week brings Force Friday and the first wave of The Last Jedi tie-ins, we have three release days this week instead of the usual two – as well as a lot of product. There’s a lot going on, basically.
