The Jedi padawans careen toward a confrontation with the Nihil in the pages of The High Republic Adventures #4 and Marvel's much-hyped War of the Bounty Hunters summer crossover event begins with the Alpha one-shot to stet the stage for what's set to be a six-month-long story.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:May 12_ Star Wars #13_ The High Republic #5May 19_ Bounty Hunters #12_ The High Republic #1 (5th Printing)_ The High Republic #2 (4th Printing)_ The High Republic #3 (3rd Printing)May 26_ Darth Vader #12_ Doctor Aphra #10_ Star Wars Adventures: Weapon of a Jedi (1 of 2)June 2_ War of the Bounty Hunters #1June 9_ The High Republic Adventures #5_ Bounty Hunters #13_ Star Wars Adventures #5_ Bounty Hunters, Vol. 2, “Target Valance” TPB_ Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Old Republic, Vol. 4June 16_ Star Wars #14_ Star Wars Adventures #6_ War of the Bounty Hunters #1 (2nd Printing)_ Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Old Republic, Vol. 4June 23_ Darth Vader #13_ Star Wars Adventures #6_ Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 2, “Into the Fire” TPBJune 30_ Doctor Aphra #11_ The High Republic #6_ Star Wars Adventures: The Weapon of a Jedi #2 (of 2)July 7_ Bounty Hunters #14_ Star Wars Adventures #7_ Star Wars Legends: The Old Republic Omnibus Vol. 1_ The Phantom Menace Graphic Novel Adaptation (IDW)July 14_ Doctor Aphra #12_ War of the Bounty Hunters #2_ The Phantom Menace Graphic Novel Adaptation (IDW)July 21_ The High Republic Adventures #6_ Darth Vader #14_ War of the Bounty Hunters — Jabba the Hutt #1 (One-Shot)_ Star Wars Adventures #8July 28_ Star Wars #15_ The High Republic #7_ Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Marvel Years, Vol. 5 TPB_ Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 2, “The Engine Job” TPBAug. 4_ Star Wars Adventures #9Aug. 11_ The High Republic, Vol. 1, “There Is No Fear” TPBAug. 14_ Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Free Comic Book Day Issue_ The High Republic: The Edge of Balance/Guardians of the Whills FCBD IssueSept. 1_ Star Wars Adventures #10Sept. 8_ The High Republic: Edge of Balance Manga_ Star Wars Rebels Manga, Vol. 2Sept. 15_ Star Wars Adventures: Smuggler’s Run TPBSept. 29_ Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith Omnibus_ Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), “The Light & the Dark” TPBOct. 20_ Darth Vader (Vol. 2) OmnibusOct. 26_ Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-16)Oct. 27_ The High Republic Adventures, Vol. 1, TPB_ Star Wars Episodes IV-IX Adaptation Box Set (IDW)Nov. 9_ War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5)_ War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TBP (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boussh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 16_ Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18)Nov. 23

Exegol. Darth Vader makes his stand against Palpatine and the stakes couldn't be higher. Though we know how it all eventually will come to pass, that does nothing to deter from the fast-paced, dark-plumbed story that envelops madness, hubris and redemption in the pages of Darth Vader #11.In news, Andrew Winegarner has completed his fan adaption of the leaked script for "Duel of the Fates" (https://bit.ly/3xxVcH2) and it's a great read from start to finish.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:April 28_ Darth Vader #11_ The Empire Strikes Back — The 40th Anniversary Covers by Chris Sprouse #1May 5_ War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1_ War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 (Director’s Cut)_ The High Republic Adventures #4_ Guardian of the Whills: The MangaMay 12_ Star Wars #13_ The High Republic #5May 19_ Bounty Hunters #12May 26_ Darth Vader #12_ Doctor Aphra #10_ Star Wars Adventures: Weapon of a Jedi (1 of 2)_ Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Old Republic, Vol. 4June 2_ War of the Bounty Hunters #1_ The High Republic Adventures #5_ Star Wars Adventures #5June 9_ Bounty Hunters #13_ Star Wars Adventures #7_ Bounty Hunters, Vol. 2, “Target Valance” TPBJune 16_ Star Wars #14_ Star Wars Adventures #6June 23_ Darth Vader #13_ Star Wars Adventures #6_ Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 2, “Into the Fire” TPBJune 30_ Doctor Aphra #11_ The High Republic #6_ Star Wars Adventures: The Weapon of a Jedi #2 (of 2)July 7_ Bounty Hunters #14_ Star Wars Adventures #7_ Star Wars Legends: The Old Republic Omnibus Vol. 1July 14_ Doctor Aphra #12_ War of the Bounty Hunters #2_ The Phantom Menace Graphic Novel Adaptation from IDWJuly 21_ The High Republic Adventures #6_ Darth Vader #14_ War of the Bounty Hunters — Jabba the Hutt #1 (One-Shot)_ Star Wars Adventures #8July 28_ Star Wars #15_ The High Republic #7_ Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Marvel Years, Vol. 5 TPB_ Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2), Vol. 2, “The Engine Job” TPBAug. 4_ Star Wars Adventures #9Aug. 11_ The High Republic, Vol. 1, “There Is No Fear” TPBAug. 14_ Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Free Comic Book Day Issue_ The High Republic: The Edge of Balance/Guardians of the Whills FCBD IssueSept. 1_ Star Wars Adventures #10Sept. 8_ The High Republic: Edge of Balance MangaSept. 15_ Star Wars Adventures: Smuggler’s Run TPBSept. 29_ Star Wars Legends: Rise of the Sith Omnibus_ Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2), “The Light & the Dark” TPBOct. 20_ Darth Vader (Vol. 2) OmnibusOct. 26_ Darth Vader (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #12-16)Oct. 27_ The High Republic Adventures, Vol. 1, TPBNov. 9_ War of the Bounty Hunters TPB (Collects Alpha #1, War of the Bounty Hunters 1-5)_ War of the Bounty Hunters Companion TBP (Collects Jabba, IG-88, Boussh, 4-LOM & Zuckuss)Nov. 16_ Star Wars (Vol. 3), Vol. 3 TPB (Collects #13-18)Nov. 23

Doctor Aphra and Sana Starros come one step closer to finding out just what kind of technology is being employed in a revolutionary drive (Hello, Nihil!) and Domina Tagge isn't about to let some upstart undo all of her hard-won Imperial contracts.It's a showdown, with Vukorah dead center, as commerce, espionage and, gasp, saving lives (even the Rebellion) start to collide and combine in the pages of Doctor Aphra (Vol. 2) #9.In news, Heather Antos is returning to Star Wars as a new senior editor at IDW, while the War of the Bounty Hunters is setting itself up to be a rather extensive summerlong event. Speaking of which, the number of variants for May 5's War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 one-shot is growing ever larger.

We've got an almost one-and-done Bossk story in Bounty Hunters #11, but it sets the stage nicely for the start of May's "War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha one-shot" and the subsequent crossover that will touch each issue of each Star Wars comic title in May, June and, perhaps, even in July and beyond.This week's news includes:_ Your Money Geek's annual top 10 Star Wars Podcast Awards vote is still live.

No new Star Wars comics out this week, yet that doesn't mean we've got nothing to discuss.This week's episode is an interview with Andrew Winegarner who took it upon himself to adapt the leaked script for Star Wars IX by dismissed director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly. Winegarner hasn't held back, delivering six issues of the seven-issue adaptation (the final issue is on its way), telling a story that feels natural and, as Jeff put it, "very much like a Star Wars story."The comic can be read online (https://bit.ly/39subuu) and its time well spent. You can find out more about Winegarner or follow him on Twitter (https://bit.ly/3czRmoo).Upcoming Star Wars comics include:April 7_ The High Republic #4

Jeff does his level-best Jackée Harry impression to the start the show and for that we beg your forgiveness. Thankfully, we make up for it -- we hope -- by breaking down the two stories in this week's Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2) #4 as well as Doctor Aphra #8 that has us wondering if writer Alyssa Wong is a fan of Thomas Harris novels. In news, we break down June's solicits from Marvel and IDW, including our thoughts on whether War of the Bounty Hunters could extend into July's Star Wars comics, along with Marvel's plans for Pride variants on June's Star Wars comics issues.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:March 31

It's a rare treat to get a one-and-done story in any comic these days, yet that's exactly what we have in the pages of Marvel's Star Wars (Vol. 3) #12, as Leia Organa and Kes Dameron recount to each other how they fell in love with Shara Bey and Han Solo.It's a well-paced issue that lets Charles Soule revisit, in a sense, the ties between Poe Dameron and Gen. Organa in his Poe Dameron series, while also adding more background to the relationship between Poe's parents. It concludes nicely, setting the stage for the next chapter in the "Operation Starlight Arc."In news, we discuss recently announced plans for omnibus collections featuring Darth Vader (Vol. 2) as well as the Legends-era Rise of the Sith that collects several mini-series and stories published by Dark Horse Comics.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:March 17_ Bounty Hunters #10_ Star Wars Adventures #4_ The High Republic #1 (4th Printing)March 24

Star Wars: The High Republic has made the leap from notional idea to actual concept, powered to life by a consortium of creatives worldwide in comics, books and so much more yet to come.Marvel's The High Republic series is drawing critical and consumer acclaim, with the first issue going to three printings (as of this podcast's release), no small feat. Part of that is due to Ario Anindito's fluid yet precise illustrations that soar to life with Mark Morales' inks and Annalisa Leoni's color artistry.Anindito joined us to talk about his comics-making history, love of Star Wars, what it meant to him when he was asked to take part in a new, secret Star Wars comic and what his plans are for The High Republic moving forward.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Feb. 24

Despite no new comics this week, we sat down with Daniel José Older to talk about the launch of Star Wars: The High Republic Adventure series at IDW, the art of storytelling and so much more. The author of "Last Shot," the upcoming "Race to Crashpoint Tower," "Flood City," as well as the "Dactyl Hill Squad" and "Shadowshaper" series of books, Older is always an engaging conversationalist who melds his real-life experiences into a fictional tapestry of storytelling.(Photo by John Midgley)Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Feb. 24

The High Republic takes center stage with not one but two issues based in that era, including the debut of IDW's The High Republic Adventures #1, a book that we believe is the perfect synthesis of writer, illustrator, colorist, letterer and editor that ushers in a new storytelling dynamic for the medium.In Marvel's The High Republic #2, there's an ominous undercurrent of dread from start to finish as readers delve delicately deeper into Sskeer's history while Keeve Trennis contends with her first mission as a Jedi Knight.Fans of the Prequel Trilogy era will be enamored of Star Wars Adventures (Vol. 2) #3, which features a pair of stories featuring Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Life Day adventure, while the backup sees Maul build up his Crimson Dawn with the help of Savage Opress.Finally, in Star Wars (Vol. 3) #11, Starlight Squadron faces a critical decision while Lando and Lobot come to a startingly revelation.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Feb. 10

Anytime a Star Wars comic pairs Doctor Aphra and Sana Starros you know it's going to be laden with action, verbal sparring and some simmering tension. Doctor Aphra #7 is no exception, with new artist Minkyu Jung's illustrations, inked by Victor Olazaba and colored by Rachelle Rosenberg, providing some fluid and intense detail. Coupled with Joe Caramagna's lettering that bring Alyssa Wong's script to life, and it's a rollicking story with a helluva cliffhanger.Upcoming Star Wars comics include:Jan. 27
