Comic Review: ‘Star Wars #4′

Jabba the Hutt is one of my favorite characters, so when a comic writer can have the big Hutt stand toe-to-toe with Darth Vader in a credible fashion, I’m all in. Star Wars #4 delivers some great character storytelling as it sets everyone up for a clash on Tatooine. Click here to read our full review.

kanan-the-last-padawanAmid all the news from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, one piece that might have slipped by was from the Star Wars Comes Home to Marvel panel. There it was revealed that Greg Weisman will be sticking around for the second arc of Kanan: The Last Padawan. Greg was originally hired to write just the first five issues as it was planned to just be a mini-series. Due to popularity, Marvel quickly decided to make it an ongoing series, and now they’ve brought Greg back to write the second arc. Very cool news and definitely something for fans to looks forward to.
