Pick(s) of the Week: The Star Wars #4

the star wars #4 coverThe Star Wars is the comic version of the unpublished original draft of George Lucas’ Star Wars. For three issues we’ve been introduced to a world that’s so familiar and at the same time different, new and exciting.

General Skywalker and Jedi-in-training Annikin Starkiller have a deadly encounter with mounted Stormtroopers! An encounter with outlaws in a cantina leads to a meeting with smuggler Han Solo! And a Jedi makes the ultimate sacrifice to save one of Princess Leia’s younger brothers!

It’s a duel in the desert for this awesome and fresh Star Wars series.

Check out below for the rest of our picks!

Andrew:

Top Pick: Terminator Salvation Final Battle #1 (Dark Horse) – Straczynski pens a 12-issue, time hopping Terminator series. Why would you not read this?

The Black Bat #7 (Dynamite) – This is a wicked good pulp series that pays homage to a near century-old antihero. It’s early enough to start from the beginning, do it.

Detective Comics #26 (DC Comics) – I had put this series down for a while (I can only read so many Batman storylines), but the cover art and genetically altered bat-people plotline has brought me back.

The Star Wars #4 (Dark Horse) – The places and names still take some time getting used to (Annikin Starkiller…), but overall it’s interesting to see the first draft of one of the world’s most iconic stories.

Graphic Novel/TPB Top Pick: Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Vol 2 HC (Archaia) – I have just started reading Mouse Guard and it is, by far, one of best stories in print. I am now scouring eBay and Amazon for every collected edition, anthology, and Free Comic Book Day one-off issue.

Brett:

Top Pick: Trillium #5 (Vertigo) – The time travel love story has delivered with every single issue. This will go down as one of the best mini-series of the year. A shining example of Vertigo’s resurgence.

The Fox #4 (Archie Comics) – The classic character has a new life courtesy of Mark Waid, Dean Haspiel and Archie comics. The first issue was solid and actually has me excited for a super hero comic from Archie!

Inhumanity #1 (Marvel) – Infinity is over and now starts the rise of the Inhumans. This’ll be a huge issue setting the tone and direction of the Marvel Universe for at least the next year.

The Star Wars #4 (Dark Horse) – See above why this is on my list.

Velvet #2 (Image Comics) – This spy series from writer Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting had an amazing first issue. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the second.

Graphic Novel/TPB Top Pick: Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Vol 2 HC (Archaia) – I devour each individual issue and when they’re collected as hardcovers. The fantasy series starring mice is absolutely classic and perfect to share with the whole family.
