Star Wars Notebook: Sunday August 15, 2021

First of all, and ICYMI, yesterday was Free Comic Day, and the brave folks at The One Stop Shop in Clinton, Massachusetts – who’ve been in many of the 20 years of the (mostly) annual comic book celebration – saved me a copy of the two free issues of Star Wars.

Thanks to Tim and his team, who make my sons and I feel so welcome every time we pass by to browse new / used video games.

And check out the two great previews I picked up on Saturday!

Adventures of the High Republic Star Wars

FreeComicBookDay.com teased:

Written by the architect of the series Daniel José Older, it is the ideal entry into the world of the High Republic and a story not to be missed for fans! This will be oriented more towards the Star Wars: Adventures of the High Republic FLIGHT 1 TPB, however Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures # 6 remains the start of the next story arc and should be supported in the background.

Star Wars Manga: The Edge of Balance

On the pre-order page, Amazon.com teased:

In the aftermath of the hyperspace catastrophe, the young Jedi knight, Lily Tora-Asi, is tasked with helping displaced civilians resettle on Banchii, a newly inhabited planet in the Inugg system, far in the Outer Rim. While balancing the arrival of the new settlers and teaching the Padawans on their Temple outpost, Lily also has to deal with an attack from the insidious Drengir and, after the events of the Republic Fair, deal with the growing threat of Nihil. But the dangers for Lily and her Padawans are much closer than she thinks …

Also teased in this comic was Star Wars: Guardians of the Whills, The Manga:

On the sales page, Amazon.com teased:

Presiding over the Kyber Temple on Jedha, the Guardians of the Whills, Baze Malbus and Chirrut ÃŽmwe, had hoped to maintain a peaceful balance despite the Empire’s growing presence in their Holy City. They struggle to maintain their beliefs as the stormtroopers threaten to take over, when Saw Gerrera appears offering them a chance to help Jedha. How far are Baze and Chirrut willing to compromise for peace, or will Saw’s plan be too dangerous to risk?

StarWars.com also tweeted. Especially when it comes to making the buzz about the final episode of season 1 of The bad lot.

And, Kristin Baver – our favorite integrated diary – also dropped a lot of details about the week.

Old friend Steele Saunders (Steel wars) says episode 16 was “exceptional” – we agree.

OK, I did it right under the wire, my friends. Until next Sunday, #MTFBWY.
