May4

Just in time for today’s annual celebration of Star Wars, May the Fourth, Star Wars Day 2021, Disney+ is streaming the new animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch, beginning with a 72-minute premiere, starting today.  Viewers will only need to wait until Friday for episode 2, with new episodes airing weekly.  You met the clone troopers who star in the series last year in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  The new series features 16 episodes, taking off after The Clone Wars and featuring appearances by Fennic Shand, voiced by Ming-Na Wen, with the return of Grand Moff Tarkin, voiced by Stephen Stanton, along with Saw Gerrera, voiced by Andrew Kishino.  While you’re at it, Lucasfilm has created a downloadable Bingo game for the show.

Valentines Day Weekend Star Wars sale

Dark Horse Comics is offering a valentine to anyone who wants to catch up on one or more of 38 Star Wars digital comics available on their website.  Their promotion states that you can save up to 50% off cover price but we’re seeing $2.99 books going for as low as $0.99 and even a $0.49 for Brian Wood’s Star Wars, Issue #1.

We recommend the great Star Wars: Infinities books, a “what if?” alternate version of each of the three original trilogy stories.  You’ll also find the classic Dark Empire series, and romantics can check out Star Wars: Union, where Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade tie the knot, and the Valentine’s Day version of the Star Wars Christmas Special in Judd Winick’s one-shot Breaking the Ice issue.  Disney has announced they are throwing aside much of the expanded universe built over the past 35 years, but we think they are nuts if they don’t include Mara Jade.  Find out more about her in Dark Horse Comics.
