This week we’re seeing one new comic and several reprints/rereleases. First up, on Tuesday, August 7, is Beth Revis’ Rebel Rising in paperback. Then, Wednesday, August 8 brings Darth Vader #19, plus a second printing of Star Wars #50 and Star Wars Volume 8, Mutiny at Mon Cala, collecting #44-49 of the series.
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.)
We’ve got one book, two new comics and a reprint this week. The book-only version of Dan Wallace’s The Rebel Files is out on Tuesday, July 3 (at least per Amazon – we’ll see). We’ve also got several comics coming on Wednesday, July 4, including Star Wars #50 (with a Terry Dodson variant), The Last Jedi #4 and Star Wars volume 3 in hardcover, collecting #26-30, #33-37 and Annual #2-3.
With Solo officially out on Friday, we’ve got a whole pile of movie tie-ins coming out this week.
One new comic this week, and two reprints, both connected to Solo. This week’s sole new release is Star Wars #47. For the reprints, we have a hardcover collectionof 2016’s Han Solo miniseries and a mini-collection of Dark Horse’s Tag & Bink comics. They’ll be in the movie, after all.
Our second excerpt from Daniel José Older’s Last Shot – the Solo tie-in novel – features Sana Starros. Starros first appeared in Marvel’s Star Wars comic back in 2015, and has been a regular in the comics ever since. Last Shot will be her first time in a novel.
The first excerpt, from March, is a moment of Han with baby Ben. Last Shot will be out in hardcover and eBook on April 17.
There’s one middle grade reference book, one comic and two trades being released this week. First up, on Tuesday, April 3, is the Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles by Landry Q. Walker.
Then, on Wednesday, April 4, head to your favorite comic venue for Star Wars #46 or the latest trade in the series, Ashes of Jedha, which collects #38-43. Marvel is also shipping a hardcover collection of their 40th anniversary cover art, if that’s your bag.
This week brings two The Last Jedi adaptations, two comics and the latest Insider. After a delay of several months, Jason Fry’s The Last Jedi novelization is finally dropping on Tuesday, March 6. (There’s also a junior novel version by Michael Kogge.)
