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.

Star Wars out this week: Han Solo, Destroyer Down

We’ve got two books, plus three brand new comics and three trade collections coming out Wednesday, November 7.

Star Wars out this week: Women of the Galaxy

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.

Coming on the comic front Wednesday, October 31 are Tales from Darth Vader’s Castle #5 and Star Wars Adventures #15.

Star Wars out this week: Solo on Blu-ray

This week’s big release is, of course, Solo: A Star Wars Story on Blu-ray Tuesday, September 25.

On the comic end of things on Wednesday, September 31, we’ve also got Poe Dameron #31, the final issue. There’s also Doctor Aphra #24 and Star Wars Adventures #14.

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”.)
