Marvel and IDW have five new Star Wars releases today.

Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – Allegiance #3

Writer: Ethan Sacks
Artist: Luke Ross
Cover Artist: Marco Checcetto
Variant Covers: Mike McKone

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER! Hounded by the FIRST ORDER across the galaxy, the RESISTANCE is in dire need of ships, weapons and recruits to make a final stand against KYLO REN’S forces. Desperation drives a delegation led by GENERAL LEIA ORGANA and REY to entreat the Rebel veteran’s one-time allies, THE MON CALAMARI, to join the fight — but decades after Imperial occupation enslaved their planet, there are those willing to stop at nothing to prevent another war from bloodying the waters of Mon Cala. A system away, POE DAMERON and FINN have their own mission: to hunt down a weapons cache on the remote moon of Avedot, unaware that they are being hunted by the most notorious criminal gang in the galaxy.

Details: 32 Pages, Rated T, $3.99 Continue Reading New Releases: ‘Allegiance #3’, ‘Return to Vader’s Castle #4’, ‘Star Wars #73’ & More…

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Left Behind”

October 15, 2019 at 6:13 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Left Behind” by Another Animal.

Another Animal is the result of a hard rock supergroup formed by members of Godsmack, Dropbox and Ugly Kid Joe.

Another Animal came about due to writer’s block for Godsmack‘s vocalist and songwriter. Godsmack‘s lead guitarist Tony Rombola, drummer Shannon Larkin, and bassist Robbie Merril joined up with Ugly Kid Joe‘s lead singer Whitfield Crane and Dropbox‘s guitarist Lee Richards. The result: Another Animal. They only made one album, Another Animal, however they did release a new single in 2011 called “Fall of Rome”. If you like “Left Behind” I’d also recommend checking out “Broken Again”.
