Bravestarr's Tex Hex makes his Star Wars Saga debut, while Mace Windu gets a lesson in humility -- or does he? -- in the Marvel-published Star Wars comics that were released Dec. 27.

Plenty to be thankful for when it came to Marvel's November slate of Star Wars comics, including a pair of double-dips for the Star Wars and Darth Vader series. Reading Poe Damerongave us all kinds of feels, especially if you harbor affection for not just Leia Organa, but Padme Amidala. Meanwhile, Alex Ray and Jim Mello struck gold with their latest issue of A Star Wars Comic where a Gonk droid serves as the focal point of a certain view from A New Hope. It's a shame the series is drawing...

It's autumn up here in our hemisphere. While leaves are falling, and the countdown clock is flipping closer and closer to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we're slating our Star Wars thirst with a bevy of Star Wars comics from Marvel and IDW Publishing, as well as a couple of young upstarts from down in central Florida, too. September's comics ran the gamut from Prequel Trilogy-era events in the Clone Warsto Original Trilogy-era nefariousness to Sequel Trilogy-era malfeasance. There was also a...

We're two years in and then some in this grand experiment of Marvel's Star Wars comics. We have to admit, it's been a heck of a run. In this episode, we're talking the releases from January and the first week of February. Listen to the show here. We interview with comic creators Alex Ray and Jim Mello. The artist and writer from Florida created A Star Wars Comic, a monthly fan-made comic that takes readers -- in just six pages -- deeper into the Star Wars head canon. They join us to...

For our last episode of 2016 -- and the first of 2017 -- co-hosts Matt Moore and Jeff McGee dive deep into the four Marvel Star Wars comics that made December so stirring. They featured tales of adventure, intrigue, daring and, yes, heroism in all its forms, subtle and small. We start off with Star Wars: Poe Dameron #9, and are immediately drawn into the role that C-3PO plays. Is he, in fact, a super stealthy agent of espionage? Is that loquacious fretting merely a cover? Meanwhile, in...

Oh my. So much Star Wars comics from November in this episode. So much we even had to include an issue from December, too, to be sure we got them all. How many? Six. Just like the original trilogy plus the prequel trilogy. But it's worth every audio minute and every single panel on every single page to hear Jeff McGee and Matt Moore get a bit emotional over the conclusion of the deftly written Star Wars: Han Solo mini-series, as well as the adroitly executed eighth of issue of Star Wars:...

Despite technology's best effort to thwart them, Jeff McGee and Matt Moore are back for another issue, diving deep into Marvel's Star Wars comics from September, including Star Wars #22, The Force Awakens #3, Han Solo #3, Poe Dameron #5 and Darth Vader #24. There's some fuzzy sound during the episode -- The First Order tried to jam our broadcast, no doubt -- but it's worth getting through it, given the piercing commentary and observation about September's stories....

That's not all, either. We're bringing you up to speed on the latest Marvel Star Wars comics news, too, including what's going on with a third monthly series, what was announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe and San Diego Comic-Con as well as a rather heated discussion about Grand Admiral Thrawn...

We're really flying Solo this episode. Seriously. No lie. Why? Because the first issue of Star Wars: Han Solo came out and we read it. Know what else we read? Everything. If it was a Marvel Star Wars comic and it came out in June, Matt Moore and Jeff McGee read it. It's true. All of it. Know what else is true? Jeff and our special guest, Tom Akel, head of content at LINE Corp., apparently went to the same convention years ago and didn't even know it. Small world, eh? Yes it is. But not...

We're flying solo for this month's issue. Wait. No, we're not! While Jeff McGee and Matt Moore had expected to have the first issue of Han Solo to discuss, its release was pushed back to later this month. Not to worry, there's plenty to discuss in regard to events in Star Wars #19, Darth Vader #20 and the fifth -- and final -- issue of Obi-wan and Anakin #5 to keep us occupied and in a debating mood. ----------------------------------------------- Click here for all issues of Comics With...

More than four months after it was supposed to be released, the Star Wars Special: C-3PO one-shot by James Robinson and Tony Harris was finally released on April 13 and Jeff McGee and Matt Moore simply couldn't -- and wouldn't -- wait another two weeks to talk about it. Who could, really? Our verdict? It was worth the wait. Why?

It's been awhile, but not as long as the wait for Episode VIII is going to be. Still, it was worth it, given co-hosts Matt Moore and Jeff McGee dive into the comics released since our last issue back in January.
