It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another addition of this week in Star Wars comics! It's not the biggest week of releases as we reach the back half of the month, but that doesn't mean it's not exciting. Let's get into it.

Star Wars #43

Jumping back into the main Star Wars line by Charles Soule, Luke Skywalker is continuing his journey to find a way to conquer his father, Darth Vader. Set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Luke needs training and jumps into the Force echo of a Sith Lord's kyber crystal. However, it's not in his mind as he actually faces and is captured by the unknown Lord. The last issue left on a cliffhanger with Luke imprisoned. It's been a trippy but fun arc for the series.

The artist for #43 is Steven Cummings and Jethro Morales. Joining Morales on inking is Wayne Faucher, and the cover artist is Stephen Segovia.

Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: Rise of the Sith Vol. 1

As trade paperbacks come out on Tuesdays, the next Epic Collection will be released on February 27. Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: Rise of the Sith Vol. 1 is a reprint of multiple comics. This edition has issues from Jedi - The Dark Side, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan: The Aurorient Express, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan: Last Stand on Ord Mantell, Jedi Council: Acts of War, Star Wars: Republic, and Star Wars Tales (thanks for the list, Wookieepedia!).

This is actually a reprint of the collection which came out in 2015 being made available once again. It's a great way for old and new fans of Star Wars Legends to get into these stories.

That's it for this week on Star Wars in Star Wars comics! Check back each week for the latest in the splash pages from a galaxy far, far away.
