    Finally got around to reading the Revelations one shot (really need to get caught up on the comics (and the books for that matter as well but the comics pile up a lot faster so need to focus on that first)).

    Was fine but I thought they were going to hint to what was coming after all these current series. But instead it was mainly just talking about the future of the current series going on.

    Makes sense though. If that issue was released in December 2023 and they aren't going to relaunch the Star Wars line of comics until probably early 2025 they probably didn't even have the stories that those future series would tell completely nailed down yet.

    So what do you think will come next? With Vader I'm not sure where you can go. This run is between TESB and ROTJ so we've nearing an end. I don't know what past years are left (I'm sure there are), but I doubt they'll abandon him. As for SW...do you think a post ROTJ series?

    I would imagine the main Star Wars line will move to the post RotJ to pre-Jakku time period. They made references to us getting more Aphra so chances are likely she will get another series.

    So, Saber-for-Hire is out, and Cavan Scott gives some behind the scene info:


    "Ty is having a ball, earning credits by slaughtering monsters and smashing Nihil scav-droids whenever she has a chance. She has no responsibilities and no Jedi breathing down her neck. And where would a monster hunter be without a big ol' monster. Eagle-eyed fans may recognize that tentacled nightmare. It's inspired by concept art designed for Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith by Sang Jun Lee. In the comic, we give it a name - a Trilark!"

    Though interestingly this concept was already given a name - the Sher Kar, which appeared in star wars galaxies on Mustafar. Whoops - guess we got another knobby white spider situation.

    We also get some kind of energy flail weapon - I assume that is the plasma mace mentioned in the comic, but it is possible it is not.

    Weird looking local species there. No name or anything, but also nice to see some non-humanoids.

    Overall a good start, should be interesting to see where things go from here.

    The best price I was able to nab the Gillen-Pak Omnibus for was £66.34, at SpeedyHen.

    It is a six trade collection, so while high price, each of those paperbacks could be £11 or more, unless bought second-hand.

    This has been a problem even during the original EU days, but I’m catching up on SW 2020 and I swear NOBODY can write Leia properly. I can never imagine the dialogue coming out of Carrie Fisher’s mouth. Always long winded speeches and melodramatic dialogue when she was never like that in the movies.

    I see what you mean, but I look past it. The movies didn't have the room to do that, JMO though.

    Yeah just view it like this that we got just very small glimpses of the characters during the movies. Considering a lot of the scenes Leia got in the movies just focused on her being Han's love interest we shouldn't put to much focus on that.

    There’s an entire page where she gives a long monologue to Kes Dameron about Hoth being cold as ice and the fire in Han’s heart keeping her warm and just as the Rebels were once lost in the cold, Han is out there frozen in carbonite and she is lost without him.

    Just didnt feel right

    Anyway, minus that bit of negativity which isn’t exactly directed at Charles Soule but more of a general EU thing:

    I’m fully caught up on the 2020 series now, and I actually like it a lot! I was bitter about the flagrant discarding of Shadows of the Empire while teasing Black Sun and Xizor, but enjoyable by itself and maybe slightly feasible to fit Shadows into it even if it makes that one year time gap even more absurd.

    I'm still confused why a SOTE shot of Dash was in one of the montage "coming soon" displays during a Celebration gig a few years ago. I'm not ecstatic about SOTE or anything, but if you're going to keep foreshadowing it in the ads, at least give us more than an occasional Xizor name-drop.

    Foreshadowing. Hmmm. Foreshadows of the Empire.

    nvm I will see myself out.

    I still find it funny that the smallest amount of time between movies somehow has the longest Vader ongoing

    With the ongoings all wrapping on in the next few months,

    Who do you guys think will be the next crop of writers to take over a Star Wars comic?

    I don’t know what he’s up to now but I assume Donny Cates at some point.

    Um, no. Donny Cates isn't working at Marvel anymore for a variety of reasons. His career is basically over for the moment.

    I think Star Wars is going to get stuck with somebody like Dan Slott. The Star Wars ongoings getting Marvel's A-list writers is the rearview window

    Charles Soulle has said he is working on a new Star Wars project for Marvel but he obviously isn't allowed yet to say what it is.

    Donny Cates had a double whammy of his wife leaving him and then shortly afterwards was in a car accident and suffered brain damage. He’s lost months worth of memories and is currently dealing with all that.

    He had to be taken off his Hulk and Ultimate Marvel relaunches because of it.

    Yeah, it"s s shame what happened to Cates.

    I'm hoping he csn finidh Redneck, as that was on its endgame but 50-50 odds at best.

    Yeah it's not anymore cancelled than the post ANH series was. Not sure why people like to throw around the word cancelled.

    Please not another Vader series.

    If Anakin stars in another ongoing, his time as an apprentice to Obiwan pre Clone Wars is far better then just more Vader.

    I’m hoping we also get post RoTJ series.

    Set either in the final year of the Galactic Civil War. See Luke training Leia, etc….

    Or jump ahead some years to Luke and his Academy.
