A ONE-SHOT SPECIAL FEATURING YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS FROM THE NEW STAR WARS TRILOGY!

This July, Hugo Award-winning writer G. Willow Wilson (MS. MARVEL) explores a pivotal conflict in Holdo’s early career that will start the young woman down the path to heroic infamy for the rebellion! With her ship at the mercy of a dangerous enemy, it’s up to Holdo to outsmart their foe and win the confidence of her compatriots in the process. With art by Elsa Charratier! The infamous “pirate queen” of Takodana, MAZ KANATA, thought she’d seen everything in her thousand-plus years of running a bar and hiring smugglers. But it turns out that the criminal underworld is always full of new surprises…especially when she hires HAN SOLO and CHEWBACCA for a job! Story by Tom Taylor (AGE OF RESISTANCE)! And Poe Dameron’s loyal companion, the astromech droid BB-8, just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. His missions always seem to escalate into a full-blown adventures! And if it means a win for his friends and the heroic Resistance freedom-fighters the little droid will stop at nothing to get the job done! Story by CHRIS ELIOPOULOS!

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Dirt Bound”

July 30, 2019 at 7:08 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Dirt Bound” by Bonafide.

There are a decent amount of bands out there that sound similar to AC/DC. That’s because they inspired a lot of people. Bonafide nails the sound but with some vocals that help them stand apart.

“Dirt Bound” is off their their 2007 self-titled and debut album Bonafide. They’re a Swedish band that’s been around since 2006 and if you like “Dirt Bound” there’s plenty more where that came from. They have seven albums to choose from right now and plenty of good songs on all of them. Happy hunting.

Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – Allegiance #1 – #4

Writer: Ethan Sacks
Artist: Luke Ross
Cover Artist: Marco Checcetto

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.

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.
