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.Continue reading “Star Wars out this week: Resistance on DVD, TIE Fighter, Doctor Aphra”
Also happening this week (Thursday-Sunday) is San Diego Comic Con, where attendees have the chance to get a special edition of Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn: Treason. The standard edition goes on sale next Tuesday.
We’re also hoping for some book news out of the con’s Lucasfilm Publishing panel Friday evening.
Three comics and two trades are coming our way on Wednesday, May 15. Brand new are Star Wars #66, Age of Rebellion: Lando Calrissian and TIE Fighter #2. The trade reprints collect Age of Republic: Heroes and Han Solo: Imperial Cadet.
The TIE comics are a tie-in/prequel to our next book, Alexander M. Freed’s Alphabet Squadron, which is out June 4. More upcoming books in our schedule.
