This week's episode is about endings, both in the comics and beyond the comics, too. Star Wars #55 brings an end to Kieron Gillen's destructive and damaging — to the Rebel Alliance — “Hope Dies” arc, leaving Han, Luke and Leia partnered with Sana Starros as the Rebellions strives to survive, not flourish.
The issue also marks the end of Salvador Larroca's long run as artist on the series.
We also talk about the conclusion of Poe Dameron with writer Charles Soule who, at NYCC, announced that his second volume of Darth Vader is ending with issue #25 in December.
We also have the latest news about the Star Wars comics reveals and plans from New York Comic Con, as well as Hasbro's upcoming six-inch Black Series figures featuring Doctor Aphra, Triple Zero and BT-1. (Now, when can we get Sana Starros and Agent Terex?)
It's a strong episode, with some good discussion and some illuminating observations by Soule. Listen and let us know what you think.
This week's Star Wars comics include:
- Solo: A Star Wars Story Adaptation #1
