May the Fourth Be With You at Your Local Comic Shop

These are the new and current Star Wars comics you can start reading today!

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

The Star Wars Universe offers a multitude of characters, eras, and locales that give comic creators plenty of opportunity to spin new yarns in the sequential art form. With Disney's purchase of Star Wars earlier this decade, the comic book adventures soon returned to their roots when Marvel began publishing an all-new slate of in-continuity adventures.

As we all celebrate May the Fourth, it's a great time to look through some of the offerings that you can pick up right now either at a brick and mortar store or online!


The flagship STAR WARS title continues to carry on with stories that build off of the films while also delving into new territory. This week saw the release of the series' 65th issue. Penned by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Angel Unzueta, the installment contained the fourth part of "The Scourging of Shu-Torun" storyline. This creative team will bow out with #67 making way for newcomers Greg Pak and Phil Noto!

Initially created by Kieron Gillen in his early DARTH VADER run, Doctor Aphra proved popular enough given her brilliant, roguish nature to helm her own solo series, which launched in 2017. Right now the series is between story arcs with "Worst Among Equals" ending with last month's #31 and "Unspeakable Rebel Superweapon" kicking off with next week's #32, all of which were written by Si Spurrier.

Over the years, we've had the pleasure of sitting in the co-pilot seat for plenty of Rebel missions, but now, thanks to Jody Houser and a squadron of talented artists, we get an inside look at the Empire's side of the space war with STAR WARS: TIE FIGHTER! The five-issue limited series shines the spotlight on Shadow Wing and their endeavor to keep the citizens of the Empire safe from those blaster-happy Rebels and their dastardly spies! This comic series works in concert with this summer's novel Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed.

Now you can get an early look at the Black Spire Outpost and one of its most famous inhabitants, merchant Dok-Ondar. You can grab the first issue now and the second will drop later this month.
