This week in Star Wars comics, we see one of the ongoing series come to a close, we jump back in with The High Republic, and Obi-Wan Kenobi infiltrates Fortress Inquisitorius. It's all Marvel this time, so let's dive into what arrives in your local comic book store today!

Bounty Hunters #42

This week's big title is the final issue of Bounty Hunters from Ethan Sacks, which has become a fan favorite book among fans. The scum and villainy story turned found family has brought together an eclectic cast from Valance to Boba Fett with plenty of appearances in between. The issue has been promoted as Beilert Valance's "last adventure," according to Sacks. Sacks also requested a few things for the issue, including for it to be extra long. This called for the return of Paolo Villanelli, whom Sacks personally asked for, to team up with Jethro Morales as the artists for this book.

It's going to be an exciting conclusion to one of the ongoing series, so don't miss out on Bounty Hunters #42 this week!

The High Republic #3

Phase III of The High Republic continues with the latest installment of its mainline comic series. Written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Jim Towe, we pick back up with Jedi Master Keeve Trennis, who is shocked that her former master may have survived the crash on Starlight Beacon one year ago. However, the villainous Lourna Dee is still on the run, causing havoc in the galaxy. This issue is surely going to excite fans of The High Republic.

Obi-Wan Kenobi #4

The comic adaptation of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series continues with issue #4, which is the story of the fourth episode with the titular character sneaking into Fortress Inquisitorius to save little Princess Leia Organa. Written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Salvador Larroca, these are essentially the episodes in comic form, like last week's issue of The Mandalorian. However, they're still really neat by giving artists a chance to bring these stories to life in their own styles. If you're a fan of great artwork with your favorite characters, these are for you.
