Happy New Star Wars Comics Wednesday - FANTASTIC new Star Wars series starts NOW!!

 Okay, I'm putting on my BIG hype pants, but they're also my no lying pants! Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron, John Cassady, and colorist Laura Martin, has everything I loved about Star Wars when it debuted back in 1977! Forget the nonsense of Episodes 1, 2, and 3, this Star Wars comic takes place between Star Wars A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and has all of the core characters written and drawn (and colored) with utter perfection, seriously, this was fun, full of action, and had great character bits! If the new Star Wars movie that comes out in December is as good as this, well then it will be a fine December indeed (I have every confidence that it will be)!
 Second issue of A Voice in the Dark arc two, with a guest appearance by Beverly Boyer, a customer of Alternate Reality Comics, creator Larime Taylor continues to impress with his well defined characters and his excellent ear for dialogue, with beautiful colors by Jay Savage! The conclusion of Mark Millar & Frank Quitely's Jupiter's Legacy! Today's Miles Morales, Ultimate Spider-Man is an excellent Kingpin story (and father and son talk issue) that reads like one of Bendis' excellent issues of his long run on Daredevil!
 Second Thor vs. Hulk, more great action as only writer artist Jim Starlin can conjure!
Hope to see a lot of you sequential art lovers here at Alternate Reality Comics today and this week for the debut of the return of Star Wars comics to Marvel Comics (but a big tip of my hat to Dark Horse Comics for taking care of people's Star Wars fix for 25 years!)!
