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.)
Three comics and a Legends reprint collection are headed to the comic shops for Wednesday, January 17. The comics are Star Wars #42, Star Wars Adventures #6 and Forces of Destiny: Hera. The trade is volume 2 of the Legends Legacy series, collecting #20-36, #41, #0 and #1/2 of the Dark Horse far-future title.
It’s The Last Jedi week, with the first screenings hitting the night of Thursday, December 14 in the U.S. (International dates may vary, but the bulk are this week.)
In the modern age of Star Wars, that also means that we’re getting the bulk of the film’s tie-ins on Friday, December 15.
