#30DaystoTFA: 7 Days Left, Star Wars Comics


I'm planning on spending the next week re-reading the new Star Wars comics as I wait to see Episode VII and avoid the internet (and potential spoilers)!

If you're not already reading the new Star Wars comics by Marvel you're lucky because 1) the trade paperbacks are coming out and 2) you get to read them for the first time!

These comics have been amazing. Sometimes they do feel like the authors are trying too hard to reference the movies, or the characterization feels off (like Star Wars issue #1, no way do I believe Leia would pause as they are trying to escape to talk about her feelings with Han!) but mostly they are exciting, introduce fascinating new characters, fill in some gaps between the OT movies, and provide interesting backstory for the new characters of Episode VII.

Out of all of the comics, my favorite ongoing series are Kanan and Darth Vader. The Princess Leia comic series was very good, but it was not an ongoing comic and ended after five issues. I am also loving the Han backstory in the Star Wars comics. And if you're excited to meet Poe Dameron next week, you should check out Shattered Empire!
