Hello, my Star Wars friends! It has been a wee while since I updated everyone on life on the Darkside (recently, it’s pretty dark :(). But this is an update worthy of a post, so comic book fans (and Mandalorian fans) should be rejoicing!
Star Wars dot com recently announced the launch of The Mandalorian comic book adaptation from Marvel. Marvel and Star Wars often come together in the comic book area, so it’s nothing new really. But it’s a first for The Mandalorian getting his own comic book adaptation!
Check out the excellent cover:
As it’s a comic book adaptation of the show, there won’t really be a whole lot to tell if you’ve already seen the Disney Plus series. However, sometimes they (writers) change things up a little in comics, even if they’re adaptations, so there’s that to look forward to! Plus, everyone loves Din Djarin – I mean, he is really popular with fans, so I imagine A LOT of people will be buying this comic. I’m not sure if I will review it myself (assuming it doesn’t sell out first, which is quite likely). I guess there will always be an online version somewhere (usually), so that’s always an option.
I am thinking of buying a yearly subscription to Star Wars Insider magazine in other book-related news. In fact, I am pretty close to signing up, so I’ll be reviewing content in those magazines too! The Star Wars Insider magazines are well-known to the fandom as they’ve been around for quite a while now. These magazines are official Star Wars magazines, so it’s a good move for me. I have various Star Wars Insider magazines of my own already, and I bought some “special edition” copies a while back that featured the best of Star Wars Insider for a specific period. But I want to expand on my collection, so this is the best way to do that. Plus, I adore their covers (I am a massive sucker for comic book and book covers, and now that includes magazines) 😁
