Comic book adaptations of Star Wars movies have a long tradition. But it seems The Rise of Skywalker may get no comic book adaptation from Marvel. Marvel has canceled the #1 issue of The Rise of Skywalker which was originally meant to be released in June, before the pandemic. There’s still a chance Marvel may release a trade paperback with all five planned issues later, but there is no official word about that yet. For now there will be no Marvel adaptation. IDW however are releasing their own comic book adaptation of The Rise of Skywalker, so the movie won’t be the only Star Wars movie without any comic book adaptation at all. But IDW sells a lot less comics than Marvel or DC and their release won’t be as high profile as a Marvel version.
So, Hasbro is into blind-boxed packaging now? Heaven help us. Is this the only way they can charge $40 for a 6″ figure now? We like the contents of this set, but not its price.

Chuck Wendig, known among Star Wars fans as the author of the Aftermath trilogy, has been fired by Marvel comics today. Wendig announced that on his official Twitter feed. Wendig was supposed to write the 5 part Star Wars miniseries “Shadow of Vader” for Marvel, which is supposed to be launched in January 2019. Actually, the series had only been announced a few day ago at NYCC. Wendig, who already wrote issues 1-3 will no longer write issues 4 and 5 and another unnamed Star Wars comic book. Wendig has his own theory about why he was fired (because of toxic Star Wars haters), official word is he was fired by Marvel because of his very frequent Twitter rage rants and outbursts. The last one happened only a very short while ago and featured some rather crass language. It remains to be seen if Wendig will keep writing Star Wars novels for Lucasfilm now that he has been fired by Marvel. It’s also unknown at this moment if Shadow of Vader will go ahead with a new author or not. The comic has not been solicited yet.
