Nothing But Star Wars

Star Wars  Darth Vader Star Wars: The High Republic

The Marvel May the 4th Star Wars Sale runs through Monday, 5/6.

First, let’s run through the highlights. These are mostly the current Marvel Star Wars titles, not the Dark Horse or original Marvel runs. Also, looks like hardly any omnibuses are on sale this year? Boo…

  • Bounty Hunters (’20 -’24) – Ethan Sacks / Paolo Villanelli
  • War of the Bounty Hunters (’21) – Charles Soule / Steve McNiven / Luke Ross, wherein Boba Fett tries to deliver a carbonite encased Han Solo to Jaba the Hutt (and the Companion volume)
  • Darth Vader (’15-’16) – The AMAZING Kieron Gillen / Salvador Larroca run… and remember to get Vader Down – the Darth Vader / Star Wars crossover sequence that is KEY to this run and is not in the regular collections (just the omnibuses)
  • Darth Vader (’17 – ’18) – The also great Charles Soule / Giuseppe Camuncoli run
  • Darth Vader (’20 – present) – Greg Pak and Raffaele Ienco step in.
  • Doctor Aphra (’16-’19) – Sort of an evil Indiana Jones in the Star Wars universe, spinning off from Darth Vader. The early Gillen/Walker run is particularly good. Plus, a reminder to get The Screaming Citadel – Star Wars/Aphra crossover with key plot points to the early sequence – it’s included in the Omnibus, but not the “regular” volumes. (Seeing a pattern?)
  • Doctor Aphra (’20 – present) – Alyssa Wong / Marika Cresta / Minkyu Jung
  • Kanan: The Last Padawan Star Wars Rebels prequel by by Greg Weisman and Pepe Larraz
  • The Mandalorian (’22-’23) – Steven Barnes and Georges Jeanty adapt the first season
  • Star Wars (’15-’19) – The Marvel flagship title amazingly went 4 years without a relaunch!
  • Star Wars (’20 – present) – The relaunch! And, following protocol, Charles Soule moves from Darth Vader to Star Wars, like Gillen before him.
  • Star Wars: The High Republic (’21-’22)
  • Star Wars: The High Republic: Phase II (’22-’23)
  • Star Wars: The High Republic: The Blade

Recommendations? For whatever reason, Darth Vader seems to bring out the best in Marvel. Those first two series with Gillen and Soule, especially. Is it a coincidence Lucasfilm hired Charles Soule as a creative consultant?

Your under the radar title is KananA very solid series from one the Star Wars Rebels producers and we no longer have to introduce Pepe Larraz, do we?
