    Thank you! This is very neat, I just spent an hour the other day looking for all of this. Now I can just come here. :D

    I am most excited about Star Wars #15 - because Kenobi!

    And, talking about Kenobi, you might want to add Obi-Wan and Anakin #1 (January 1, 2016). :)

    Some information about Darth Vader #16 and #17:

    #16: The planet Shu-Torin (introduced in the Darth Vader Annual) is revolting. Darth Vader is tasked with leading a military assault. Has Vader’s rise to glory begun?

    #17: Would you follow Darth Vader into war? Better that than to be against him. A lesson the Ore Barons are about to learn ...​

    And information about Obi-Wan and Anakin #1 and #2:

    #1: Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star...they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It’s been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young “chosen one,” but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point.

    #2: Master and Padawan find themselves stranded on an unfamiliar world, a world of strange, primitive technology and dangerous natives. But even if they can save themselves...why were they called to this world?
    And, finally, information about Star Wars #16:

    "REBEL JAIL” STARTS NOW! The Rebels travel to a prison base having taken an important captive in VADER DOWN. Unfortunately, they aren’t the only ones with their eyes on the prisoners. The adventures of Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance continue!​

    Done. :) I also reference swbooks.net quite a bit, as they are constantly updating the yearly release schedule for SW material. This includes comics, novels, source books, and children's books (basically the whole gamut). They were extremely accurate last year and do a good job making updates when a book was bumped up or pushed out. It would be a useful tool for this forum.

    Obi Wan and Anakin #1 has shipped early. May be on the shelf this week.
    http://www.bleedingcool.com/2015/12/29/marvel-ships-star-wars-and-spider-man-comics-early-in-error/

    From the writer of the Lando miniseries. Looking forward to it.

    Description: W) Charles Soule (A/CA) Marco Checchetto Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star...they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker. It's been a few years since Obi-Wan pledged to train the young "chosen one," but even as they have grown closer through training, it has been a difficult road. Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point. Writer Charles Soule (Lando, She-Hulk, Daredevil) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Avengers World, Punisher) bring us a tale of the Jedi at the height of their power...

    Someone on the blog for Chewbacca #5 has read it, and though they won't reveal much, they do really like it, so that's great news!

    Well, no Star Wars comics this week from Marvel....I guess I'll spend my time trying to figure out what in the heck is going on in Secret Wars as the final issue hits tomorrow. The art is great, but this event has been so convoluted it's ridiculous. It doesn't help that they already proceeded with the post-Secret Wars series, despite the event running over into an extra issue and not having yet concluded. It's so confusing. Anyways...I wish I hadn't invested so much in the tie-ins...at least I'm really enjoying the new Spider-man and X-men series.

    Thanks for sharing that, @LadyMusashi. I'm really looking forward to reading this one on Wednesday. It was awesome to see Luke flying over those womprats while Biggs and his other friends looked on. I'm loving the artwork on this one as well...very nice...high attention to detail.

    I like that they are filling some of the bigger gaps in Luke's backstory and I am always down for more Obi-Wan. It looks very pretty and they added more Guiness to Obi-Wan (more on the cover). I'm really looking forward t it. :)
