Out this week: Dawson’s Black Spire, Age of Resistance with Poe and Hux

There’s a lot of sequel trilogy in the air as this week brings a new novel and three comics. On Tuesday, August 27, Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire by Delilah S. Dawson drops in hardcover and eBook. The book is set after The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi as General Leia’s spy Vi Moradi is tasked with setting up a Resistance base in a theme park on Batuu.

Then Wednesday, August 28 brings two Age of Resistance titles: Poe Dameron and General Hux. (We saw some previews the other day.) And there’s more Batuu in Galaxy’s Edge #5.

Marvel’s main Star Wars title is ending – for now

Marvel’s flagship Star Wars title is ending in November with issue #75. io9 reached out to Marvel after seeing the solicitation, and they confirmed it – but said we’ll learn more next month. Below, two of the covers:

A relaunch is inevitable, but will they go the expected route of continuing within the original trilogy – the current series is approaching Empire Strikes Back – or jump to a totally different part of the timeline?

Meanwhile, StarWars.com has the previews for the Poe Dameron and General Hux issues of Age of Resistance, which are out later this month.

Star Wars out this week: Resistance on DVD, TIE Fighter, Doctor Aphra

Lots for comics readers this week, but also coming on Tuesday, August 20 is the Star Wars Resistance S1 DVD. I know a lot of folks are miffed this isn’t coming out on Blu-ray, but it can be purchased digitally – and the recent announcement that the show is only getting one more season means there’s been a lot of speculation that we might get a “Complete Series” Blu-ray later. Still, for those who don’t want to take chances (and with Disney+ in the mix, who knows if they’ll bother), this is your first shot at getting a physical copy of the season.

It’s a big comic haul on Wednesday, August 21, with three new issues and two trade collections from recent series. TIE Fighter #5 ends the mini, while Doctor Aphra #35 has an all-timer cover and Star Wars Adventures #24 begins a sequel-centric run. Trade readers can nab Age of Rebellion: Villains and Star Wars Volume 11, collecting the “Scourging of Shu-Torun” storyline.
