Hey, CHU, it’s your favorite furry Kashyyk vine-slinger, DrunkWooky!
I normally try to space my Star Wars doses out to about monthly intervals for you, my dear readers, but many developments are rocking the Star Wars Galaxy right now.
1. First of all, the issues to watch right now are Star Wars (2015) Issues 4, 5, 6, and 9 with special emphasis on 6. A somewhat old rumor has it that some female actors have been casting over at Lucasfilm and that they are casting for the role of Sana Starros, A.K.A., Sana Solo, A.K.A., Han Solo’s first wife, A.K.A. Han Solo’s fake wife.
Sana Solo first appeared in issue Star Wars (2015) Issues 4 masked, re-appeared in issue 5 masked, and was finally revealed in issue 6 unmasked and named. Issue 9 is her first cover appearance (for what these things are worth).
The reason I bring all of this up is that my LCS recently placed all Star Wars current run back issues out for $1.00 each! What does this mean? From completely anecdotal evidence, these can be picked up in stacks for cheap right now and sat on in case Sana pops here scoundrely head out in the new 2017 Han Solo movie! Grab, store, keep, wait, sell!
And how’s this for burying the lead, Woody Harrelson just signed on to the unnamed Han Solo project!
2. Darth Maul Store Exclusives Revealed.
Jedi Biblothek had some great Darth Maul #1 Store Exclusive Reveals. I swore off Aspen Store Turner exclusives after their debacle upping the Harley Quinn print run and the torture I went through trying to offload those after they came in. However, this Darth Maul cover may be the only Turner cover that would pain me a) not to have; and b) to have to ever part with. It is beautiful in its hatred. 2017 will be the year of Maul. Hold me to that!
3. A Rogue One adaptation comic has been announced. All I can say is that I hope it’s better than the Force Awakens adaptation that read like the Oregon Trail on floppy disk. At least there is a nice Noto cover and JTC Jyn Erso Action Figure cover to ogle:
For now, everybody, stay furry, stay inebriated, and may the force be with you!
