Two comics, a Legends trade and a new Insider are our new releases for Wednesday, March 20.
Speaking of Legends, does Queen Trios’ headgear situation on the cover of Star Wars #63 remind anyone else of the old-school Sith from Dark Horse’s ’90s Tales of the Jedi comics? Homage? Coincidence? They’re both based off some old Flash Gordan serial? Anyway, there’s also Solo #6, Star Wars Insider #188, and back to Legends, volume three reprinting of Dark Horse’s ’00s Knights of the Old Republic series.
It’s a big week for releases, with one novel and several comics coming in. First up, on Tuesday, March 5, is E.K. Johnston’s Queen’s Shadow, a Pdame YA novel that bridges The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones and has been drawing a lot of praise from the early reviewers.
Then on Wednesday, March 6, head to the comic shops for even more Padme with Age of Republic: Padme Amidala. If that’s not quite your thing, there’s also Star Wars #62, Darth Vader: Dark Visions #1, and for the all-ages crows, IDW’s graphic novel adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back. Marvel, not to be outdone, has Ewoks reprints.

On Tuesday, January 8, the Flight of the Falcon series concludes with Pirate’s Price from Lou Anders and Annie Wu. Han and Chewbacca meet up with the notorious Hondo Ohnaka – or so claims Hondo. There’s an excerpt up at StarWars.com.

This Wednesday, December 5 brings three new comics and a trade. Marvel is launching Age of Republic: Qui-Gon Jinn #1, the first of a 30-issue series that will eventually evolve into Age of Rebellion and (as we approach Episode IX) Age of Resistance. There’s also Star Wars #58 and Poe Dameron Volume 5. And from IDW, Destroyer Down #2.
Just two comics coming on Wednesday, November 21: Star Wars #57 (the solicitation is very excited about “Shirtless HAN SOLO, chopping wood,” which I guess explains the American Gothic riff on the cover) and Solo #2, both from Marvel.
