Comics From A Galaxy Far, Far Away… Previewing This Week’s ‘Star Wars’ Comics

by Olly MacNamee

Usually we post Star Wars previews on a Tuesday, but as it is May 4th, it seemed appropriate to post today instead. We have Star Wars: Obi-Wan #1 (probably scheduled for the original date the Disney+ Obi-Wan show was originally supposed to debut) and Star Wars #23. Both out today from Marvel Comics.

“Fast approaches the ultimate destiny of one of the Jedi’s most renowned masters!

As he spends his final days in the remote deserts of Tatooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi takes time to reflect on—and record—key moments of a heroic life long-lived. Writing in old leather-bound journals from his hermit’s hut, Obi-Wan remembers his days as a young Jedi Initiate, his trials as a Padawan, the crucible of Jedi Knighthood and the Clone Wars, and some of the earliest challenges he faced as a true Master of the Force! In this tale, Obi-Wan considers a watershed Youngling adventure he narrowly survived on Coruscant when he was but eight years of age… This is just the beginning of his Jedi journey!”

The fate of THE REBEL ALLIANCE FLEET is at stake, as its last remaining divisions face off in battle against the brutal tactics of COMMANDER ELLIAN ZAHRA and her crew on the TARKIN’S WILL. For Zahra, this fight is personal; her revenge will not be complete until every life lost on THE DEATH STAR is avenged. Epic space warfare in the true STAR WARS manner!”
