July is heating up! Not just outside (please go drink water. It's really hot out there) but with Star Wars comics too! We have a new miniseries kicking off, a jump into the past with The High Republic, and we peek at the latest Star Wars Legends trade paperback out next week.

Let's get into another edition of This Week in Star Wars Comics!

Star Wars: Ahsoka #1

They must be really excited about this adaptation because Star Wars: Ahsoka #1 has a whopping 13 covers! Check them all out over with our friends at Wookieepedia. Some are the textless versions, but still, this is a hyped-up adaptation. The Obi-Wan Kenobi first issue only had 6 covers on its release.

These adaptations are exactly what is promoted: Adaptations of the series or films. Ahsoka #1 is going to be for the Ahsoka series, one issue per episode. Sometimes, these miniseries will add little scenes or bits here and there to deepen the story. However, as Dork Side writer Remi Hullings discussed recently, the adaptations are becoming pointless unless you're a super fan looking to have the unique art of your favorite series.

We'll have to wait and see if Ahsoka #1 is closer to the banger Rogue One adaptation or the lackluster Kenobi one. Rodney Barnes is the writer, Steven Cummings is the illustrator, and Rachelle Rosenberg is the cover artist.

The High Republic Adventures #7

Hopping over to Dark Horse Comics' entry, The High Republic Adventures #7 kicks off the next arc of the series. After friends have been reunited, Lula and Zeen grab a team to help protect the planet of Eriadu from the Nihil. As the villains gain more ground in Republic space, these heroes may be the only ones who can save it. This all-ages comic is written by Daniel José Older with artwork by Harvey Tolibao.

Star Wars Legends: The Thrawn Trilogy

Peeking into the trade paperback out on June 16, it's Star Wars Legends: The Thrawn Trilogy. This 504-page collection is exciting, compiling the complete Legends Thrawn comics trilogy into one place. It's a perfect way to refresh the origins of everyone's favorite blue Grand Admiral. The original story is written by Timothy Zahn and the comic was written by Mike Baron.

That's it for this week! Check back next Wednesday for another edition of This Week in Star Wars Comics! See you in the splash pages!
