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.)

Out this week: Star Wars, Doctor Aphra

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.

Out this week: Star Wars #4, Poe #18

This Wednesday, August 16, sees the release of two new comics. Star Wars #34 teams up Lando Calrissian and Sana Starros, while Poe Dameron #18 splits up Black Squadron.

Our next book will be the paperback of Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End on August 29, followed by Force Friday on September 1, with our first wave of The Last Jedi merchandise. That includes the novels Phasma by Delilah S. Dawson and Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray. See more in our book release schedule.

From a Certain Point of View’s final cover, author lineup revealed

Del Rey has revealed the final cover and complete author lineup for From a Certain Point of View, the 40th anniversary short story collection coming in October. The final additions are Kieron Gillen, Greg Rucka, Elizabeth Wein and Jeffrey Brown.

Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larocca will take over Marvel’s flagship Star Wars title with #38 – and most intrigingly, their first arc will take us to “the post-apocalyptic hell that remains of Jedha after the Death Star punched a hole through its mantle.” Gillen will continue to write Doctor Aphra.

Out this week: Star Wars #33, Rogue One #4

Two new comics, a trade, and a reprint will be on the comic shelves on Wednesday. That’s Star Wars #33 and Rogue One #4 for the comics, Star Wars Vol. 5: Yoda’s Secret War for the trade, and the second printing of Darth Maul #3.

As for the rest of the month, there are two books on tap for July. Christie Golden’s Battlefront II: Inferno Squadron and Tim Leong’s Star Wars Super Graphic on the 25th. See the more upcoming titles on our book release schedule.

Star Wars out this week: ‘The Screaming Citadel’ concludes

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.

Out this week: Star Wars #32

Out today is Star Wars #32, or part 4 of ‘The Screaming Citadel.’ Head on over to your preferred comic vendor to find out why Han Solo is sporting Twilight-style vampire eyes!

June is pretty slim on book releases, but we do have a handful coming out in July, including the Battlefront II tie-in Inferno Squadron by Christie Golden. It drops July 25. I generally don’t cover games (for my own sanity, and thus yours) but it did drop a gameplay trailer a few days ago. Battlefront II itself will be out in November. (And yeah, I did put it on my personal calendar, so that may very well be the next time I mention it.)
