Let’s check out what’s coming:
Star Wars: Return to Vader’s Castle No. 4
The fun and spooky series continues. We’ve gotten a chance to revisit with old villainous favorites in this series.
This week, we see the return of Jabba the Hutt. No matter how many times we could watch Leia take the creature down, there are still more stories to be told about the crime lord. Grab this issue from IDW Publishing for another gruesome tale.
Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Allegiance No. 3
During the trailer for Episode IX, there was a shot with dozens and dozens of ships flying down on (probably) the First Order with the Millennium Falcon swooping in to lead the charge. Where did all those ships come from?
That’s what Allegiance is partly to answer. Leia is calling in old favors to get friends and former allies to team up once again to take on the First Order and destroy the rot once and for all. It’s not easy though as the memory of what the Empire did has stayed with many .
We’ve already seen the type of destruction the First Order can do especially to those who even remain neutral. Many are reluctant to join the fight.
Star Wars No. 73
While the main title issue will wrap soon to bring forth a new one, we’re right in the middle of the current storyline. Han’s life is on the line and Leia has to trust an old friend while Luke is still trying to figure out who his new companion really is.
C-3PO also faces a big challenge, which comes at interesting time given when we saw of him in The Rise of Skywalker trailer. Sacrificing and working for the greater good may not have been inherently programmed in him, but it’s something he learned along the way from those around him.
