Sure, it’s the middle of the week and for a lot of us, that means we’re almost to the weekend. But for the special lot of us at Dorkside of the Force, what Wednesday means more than anything else is that it’s a day of new Star Wars comics! No matter what you’re looking for—new single issue, new content on Marvel Unlimited, or collected series—there’s something set in a galaxy far, far away.

New Star Wars Comics: Bounty Hunters #27 and Obi-Wan Kenobi #5

In Bounty Hunters #27, a dangerous mission near a black hole! T’onga and the bounty hunters accept a risky mission for the Pykes out of desperation for credits. Is Tasu Leech prepared to face the Kanjiklub? And a choice made by Valance alters everything.

In a preview on, we see the pages where a frantic T’onga leads her crew to a meeting with the Pyke Syndicate—never a reliable business partner. Beilert Valance, Vader’s mole exterminator, is still getting used to his new position. Only now is he beginning to be noticed!


Bounty Hunters #27 is written by Ethan Sacks and illustrated by Paolo Villanelli, with cover art by Giuseppe Camuncoli.

Also available this week is the conclusion of the Obi-Wan Kenobi mini-series. Obi-Wan has put his journals away for the time being and is now looking forward as night sets and the sandstorm that has trapped him starts to clear. In the dangers of the Jundland Wastes, he finds something unexpected—a group of ambushed stormtroopers abandoned to perish. One has a chance and Obi-Wan may very well risk everything to save this injured imperial stormtrooper that can’t help but remind Kenobi of the clones he served with so long ago.

Obi-Wan Kenobi #5 is written by Christopher Cantwell and illustrated by Adriana Melo, with cover art by Phil Noto.

You can pick up both Bounty Hunters #27 and Obi-Wan Kenobi #5 from your local comic book shop today!

New to Marvel Unlimited: Star Wars #24

If you’re a Marvel Unlimited subscriber, there’s something for you today too! Star Wars #24 is now available to read on the digital platform.

The final hunt has begun as Commander Ellian Zahra, a former understudy of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, has destroyed almost the entire Rebel fleet with cunning strategy and cruelty. She will now hunt her final prey, General Leia Organa, across a dangerous planet—all the way to the tragic end.

Star Wars #24 is written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Ramon Rosanas and Madibek Musabekov, with cover art by Carlo Pagulayan.

New Collections: Star Wars Vol. 1: The Destiny Path and Star Wars Vol. 4: Crimson Reign

If you like to collect your comics in trade paperbacks, well then there are two new volumes of the current run of Star Wars comics!

In Star Wars Vol. 1, which collects issues #1 through #6 and takes place after The Empire Strikes Back, the galaxy is going through a dark period. A terrible loss at the Battle of Hoth has dispersed the rebel fleet. Boba Fett, a bounty hunter, finds Han Solo and has taken him, frozen in carbonite. Additionally, Luke Skywalker is hurt and in shock at discovering the terrible truth about his background. Luke’s father is still alive; Darth Vader did not murder him. To rejoin the rest of the Rebel Alliance, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2 must now fight their way back. However, this motley crew of Rebels is unaware that they have merely exchanged one imperial trap for another! They’re about to cross paths with the captain of the Tarkin’s Will: the cunning and vengeful Imperial Commander Zahra!

Also released today is Star Wars Vol. 4, which collects issues #19 through #23. Luke Skywalker’s search for information takes a perilous turn! Luke decides it’s time to move forward on the path to becoming a Jedi as the Rebellion struggles to rally itself for a desperate attempt to overthrow the terrible Galactic Empire. But the Jedi order is gone, so where can Luke turn to find the legacy he so desperately needs? Luke will get important guidance from Master Yoda on his voyage, but Yoda won’t impart the lesson Luke needs to learn. More will be given and taken from this lesson than the young Skywalker could have ever anticipated! Additionally, the mother of Poe Dameron, ace Rebel pilot Shara Bey, was left abandoned on a Star Destroyer after a mission went bad. And now her time is running out!

Star Wars Vol. 1: The Destiny Path and Star Wars Vol. 4: Crimson Reign are both now available! Check with your local comic book store for availability!
