If you’re a Star Wars comics fan, you’ll be happy with three new comics available this week.
Fans will rejoice with stellar storylines produced in this week’s list of available Star Wars comics. Not only that, Charles Soule hits a major milestone with his release, which means he’s published 100 titles in the Star Wars’ realm. If that wasn’t incredible enough, his comic book finds an interesting way to expand the lore of various characters.
New Star Wars comics: Star Wars No. 25 celebrates multiple stories and characters
In an exclusive preview on starwars.com, fans learn they will see not only one iconic character, but several! From the prequel series through the Skywalker saga, Star Wars 25 gives fans a lot to take in. After watching the flashback in Obi-Wan Kenobi between Obi-Wan and Anakin, the panels in this comic book duel feel very familiar.
If you want more fighting, how about Darth Vader being challenged to a fight? That’s right; you heard me. Who would be bold enough to be so daring? [insert maniacal laughter here.] Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron make up the other two stories and the comic book pages provide a glimpse into two characters we seem to know quite well. Ren is quite patronizing to his subordinates, while Dameron finds a way to comfort those during times of grief.
Star Wars issue 25 is written by Charles Soule, illustrated by Ramon Rosanas, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Will Sliney, and Phil Noto and cover art by Carlo Pagulayan, Jason Paz, and Rachelle Rosenberg.
Star Wars: Darth Vader 25 explores why the Dark Lord is so scary
Star Wars: Darth Vader issue 25 highlights a rescue gone awry, and, wow, you do not want to mess around with Darth Vader. Writer Greg Pak creates a story of the Crimson Dawn attempting to extract Governor Tauntaza, but that’s before they realize who is chasing them.
A chase involving speeder bikes with the Dark Lord trailing behind is a scary premise. Plus, much like what we see in Obi-Wan Kenobi, fans get another glimpse of Vader’s strength with the Force as he attempts to hold back another ship. Does he succeed or will he watch his foes race off into space?
Star Wars: Darth Vader issue 25 is written by Greg Pak, illustrated by Raffaele Ienco and cover art by Paul Renaud.
Chewbacca and Krrsantan have a showdown?!
As if the other Star Wars comics’ stories weren’t fantastic enough, Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca 4 gives fans a confrontation we all want to see play out. After it appears Krrsantan gets his hands on Solo, Chewbacca races after them and attempts to slow down the infamous bounty hunter. The idea of Han Solo learning about his father in a previous issue was exciting, but this potential battle is on another level of excitement.
Does Chewie fight Krrsantan? Does Chewie stop him from taking his friend? Do I need to find out right this minute?! If you want to find out what happens, then you’ll need to order this comic book or visit your local comic shop to get your own copy.
Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca issue 4 is now available and is written by Marc Guggenheim, illustrated by David Messina and cover art by Phil Noto.
