Marvel Star Wars Comics

I’ve been enjoying pretty much all of the Star Wars comics from Marvel since they launched earlier this year – the recent Lando mini-series was especially good – and with all of the excitement for the upcoming release of The Force Awakens, I decided to read the only two series from the Marvel books I hadn’t read. The first is a 4-issue mini-series called Shattered Empire, that is the only book so far that take place after Return of the Jedi. It was quite enjoyable, in that I’m now a bit hungry to find out more about what happens during this period of time, leading up to Force Awakens. Greg Rucka is a good writer, and the art was decent. The other series is called Kanan, is still ongoing, and tells the origins of one of the characters from the current Star Wars: Rebels animated series (one of the last Jedi). When the book launched earlier this year, it wasn’t something I was particularly interested in reading, but I binged all 7 issues that are out, and ended up really liking it. The art is quite good (less so for the one fill-in issue, but still fine), and it made me appreciate this character much more than I did from watching the first season of Rebels (I haven’t watched anything from the second season yet). If you’re looking for more Star Wars comics, the current Chewbacca mini-series is really funny.
