This week in Star Wars comics is led by the wrap up of a book adaptation, an encounter between a Grand Moff and a Sith Lord, and a few collections.
Thrawn #6 (of 6)
Not much to say about this book that I have not already said. I have enjoyed this book mostly as a refresher to the book as we creep closer to the sequel hitting shelves in just a few weeks. If you are looking for the same thing then I recommend picking up the final chapter of this book.
THE RISE OF THE GRAND ADMIRAL REACHES ITS CLIMAX! THRAWN at last meets his greatest enemy face-to-face! Will PRYCE’s final gambit to save her family succeed? And what role will ELI VANTO play in Thrawn’s ultimate plan?
Darth Vader #18
The Vader comic takes a breather this month before getting into the next major story arc but I do not know how much of a breather one can take when we get a whole story of Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader’s war of words.
It is time for GRAND MOFF TARKIN to repay a long-standing debt to DARTH VADER…
…and settling what is owed will require every last bit of his cunning, and will cost more than he ever imagined.
This is the comic I am most excited for due to the fact that no matter what medium these two go toe to toe in it is always worth your attention. Seeing Tarkin in debt it Vader is bound to add a lot of weight to two of the most menacing characters we have in the Star Wars universe.
We have a two Star Wars collections coming out this week to keep in mind if you are someone who waits on a collection or may have just missed the single issue run. The first collection coming out this week is volume three of Doctor Aphra:
Rogue archaeologist Doctor Aphra jumps to lightspeed and accelerates into the next chapter of her life! The not-so-good Doc is being blackmailed by evil droid mastermind Triple-Zero to run missions for his underground crime syndicate – but that doesn’t mean she can’t cause trouble and have fun along the way! Her latest assignment? Infiltrating a secret Rebellion training center run by General Hera Syndulla. Aphra is used to being in way over her head, but this time she’s not alone! Who else is caught up in her latest misadventure? Let’s hope they’re friendly – otherwise Aphra may have finally bitten off more than she can chew! Hunted by both Hera of the Rebellion and Tolvan of the Empire, Aphra’s got a lot on her mind – but she’s always got a few tricks up her electro-sleeve! Collecting STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #14-19.
Second on the collections list is the hardcover collection of the Rogue One adaptation:
The Rebellion is here! The Rogue One crew makes the leap from the big screen to the comic-book page in this action-packed adaptation! All looks lost for the galaxy when the Empire’s new super-weapon is discovered. Any insurgency will quickly be thwarted by the devastating new Death Star! But maybe there’s hope for the rebel cause when Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor lead a crew of new heroes on a desperate mission to steal the plans to the planet-destroying threat! A crucial tale in the Star Wars saga is told at last! Plus: In an all-new story, flash back to the ill-tempered first meeting between Cassian and scene-stealing droid K-2SO! Collecting ROGUE ONE ADAPTATION #1-6 and STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE – CASSIAN & K-2SO SPECIAL #1.
