Comics With Kenobi #78 -- The Captain(s) of Our Heart

Nock this one down for the ages: Doctor Aphra Annual #2 was a true gem, not just because of Winloss and Nokk, but as a prime example of how an annual can advance a regular series, too.

There's a sublime yet stellar feeling through out the milestone Star Wars #50 as readers' notions of hope, and all that word portends, takes a sinister turn. In the pages of The Last Jedi Adaptation #4, we're entranced with how the creative team has added some complex context to that film's story without detracting from the action in the slightest.

Comics With Kenobi #67 -- When Droids Gather, Stories Will Be Told

It's as if thousands of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Well, not so much silenced as they learned that Marvel's Star Wars: Poe Dameron series ends its run in September with issue 31, bringing the title that debuted in April 2016 to its conclusion. As fate would have it, Poe Dameron #28 is the topic du jour of this week's episode -- Hey! Thanks, fortuitous timing! -- and if "The Awakening, Part III" is any indication of how the series will end, it's in very good hands....


Comics With Kenobi #66 -- Who Ordered the Blackened Fish?

A darkly disturbing yet satisfying end to the "Mutiny at Mon Cala" story arc in the pages of Darth Vader leaves Jeff and Matt in a reflective mood, while the appearance of Nightswan -- again! -- has them wishing Thrawn was more than six issues long. Also of note is the belated news that Doctor Aphra is getting the exclusive treatment at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, coming as a 3.75" figure and joined by Triple Zero and BT-1. Plans for her individual action figure are still on, too....

Comics With Kenobi #65 -- We Could Be Royally Messed Up

The Empire's hosting a fish fry and everyone is invited, especially if you're part of the Rebel Alliance (and, likely, a traitor, too!). Such is the discussion of Star Wars #49, a fitting, if not startling, end to the "Mutiny of Mon Cala" arc that sets the next story, "Hope Dies" in issue #50 of Marvel's flagship monthly Star Wars title. Meanwhile, in The Last Jedi Adaptation #3, readers are on the receiving end of some important character development courtesy not just of Luke, but Reylo,...


Comics With Kenobi #64 -- No Droids Were Harmed in This Podcast

Suave, shifty and morally ambiguous, Lando Calrissian is a complex character.

Join us as we break down the first of this five-issue series, which is off to a stellar start in every conceivable way, ensuring that we are steadfast "Lando 4 Life." Join us as we break down the first of this...
