Fresh of the heels of being deemed too obscure for the Star Wars Celebration podcast stage (Q: Who reads Star Wars comics anyway? A: About 200,000 do, every month.), we’re looking at last week’s Star Wars comics this week, including a rather stirring start of a new story arc in Doctor Aphra #26 and a thoroughly entertaining chapter of “Fortress Vader” in Darth Vader #23 that deftly blends subtle humor with a deeper lesson on the notion of maintaining balance in the force.There’s also news and views, given Marvel’s decision to scupper — not cancel — Chuck Wendig’s Star Wars: Shadow of Vader five-issue mini series; A Star Wars Comic‘s decision to postpone its November release until December; the passing of Stan Lee; and John Tyler Christopher’s Yavin Princess Leia action-figure variant cover for Star Wars #58.
