Readers were treated to three stories featuring three Sequel Trilogy-era characters — Maz Kanata, Amilyn Holdo and BB-8 — in the pages of Star Wars: Age of Resistance Special #1 that helped solidify our desire for a Kanata-driven Star Wars comics series.
Doctor Aphra made her first — and maybe not the last — appearance on Batuu in the pages of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge #4, helping the mini series cement its status as a stand-alone story that doesn't even need the park that shares its name as bulwark.
We've also got the latest Star Wars comics news and views, including details about Star Wars Adventures upcoming 2019 annual and so much more.
