We here at Comics With Kenobi learned something new about Star Wars from this past week’s comics: Everybody poops.
As for news? The Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer came out just before we began recording. Our thoughts? “I’ve got a good feeling about this.”
We had good feelings about Star Wars 46 and A Star Wars Comic 14, too.
As for March’s Star Wars comics orders, they weren’t so low, either, with Star Wars 44 ranked No. 14 on Diamond’s Top 100 orders for March, followed by issue 45 at 17 and Darth Vader 13 at No. 18. Doctor Aphra 18 came in at No. 59 and was followed by Poe Dameron 25 at No. 88 (that’s a crime, plain and simple).
Speaking of Darth Vader and Poe Dameron, those series’ writer, Charles Soule, has his first novel out now. We’ve read The Oracle Year and can say, with authority, it’s good. Be sure to get a copy.
Meanwhile, Daniel Jose Older’s Last Shot novel features Sana Starros in it, whose first appearance came in the pages of Star Wars Vol. 2. Read an excerpt of the book, due out April 17, at StarWars.com.
Lastly, Gary Whitta, who is writing the upcoming The Last Jedi comics adaptation, disclosed on Twitter that he’s working on a possible remake of the 1980s sci-fi flick The Last Starfighter, which has us totally stoked.
