For Star Wars fans, one young reader book, three new comics and a trade collection are coming to stores this week. 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.Continue reading “Star Wars out this week: Hondo meets Han and Chewie (allegedly)”
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.
We’ve got two books, plus three brand new comics and three trade collections coming out Wednesday, November 7.
Halloween week brings one new book, one paperback reprint, and two comics. Out on Tuesday, October 30 is Women of the Galaxy by Amy Ratcliffe and many, many artists. (You can preview some of the art here, here and here.) It’s also a chance for fans to pick up the paperback of Daniel José Older’s Last Shot, the Han and Lando novel that first came out ahead of Solo in the spring.
One book for young readers, two comics and an Insider are on the offer this week.
This week’s big release is, of course, Solo: A Star Wars Story on Blu-ray Tuesday, September 25.
But there’s something I missed last week that you can get your hands on – a new version of The Complete Visual Dictionary, quite literally the “new edition,” a title quirk which I’m sure will age well. (The last actual Visual Dictionary was released in 2006, but there was a new Visual Encyclopedia in 2017. The main difference seems to be that the Encyclopedia covers “more than 3,000” items, while the Dictionary boasts “more than 1,500”.)
Three new comics and two adaptations are coming this Wednesday, August 29. From Marvel, look for Lando: Double or Nothing #4 and Poe Dameron Annual #2 (variant). Meanwhile, all-ages imprint IDW has Star Wars Adventures #13 and adaptations of The Last Jedi and A New Hope.
