Just a single issue to delve into in this week’s episode, but there’s enough material in Solo: A Star Wars Story adaptation #5 to generate some significant discussion about the role adaptations play in the wider Star Wars comics segment.
In comics news, we’re excited about word that Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet’s Star Wars Adventures #22, out in May, will feature a Princess Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO story set after The Empire Strikes Back as they search for Han Solo. Then there’s IDW’s announcement that Walter Simonson, a comics legend, will get the Artist’s Edition treatment for his work on Marvel’s first Star Wars series.
We’re also talking news of Cavan Scott’s third anniversary writing Star Wars material, Kieron Gillen handing in his last script for the flagship series — issue #67 — and artist John Tyler Christopher’s latest action-figure variant exclusive, available for order Feb. 28, featuring Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This week’s Star Wars comics, out Feb. 27, include:
- Doctor Aphra #29
- The Star Wars, Vol. 2, omnibus, collecting issues #1-37, the Vader Down one shot, Darth Vader, Vol. 1, #13-15, The Screaming Citadel one shot, Doctor Aphra #7-8 and Star Wars Annual #1.
