Not 100% sure, but will probably just cross the bridge to the nearest comic store (www.heroes.co.nz) and put an order in the week before or something.

Update - given that they are pushing these Shattered Empire comics out more frequently than monthly, and the TPB will therefore be available in November, I might just wait for that rather than buying four individual issues: https://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/Sta ... ?r=1755803

Ok, here's what I've got. These are the covers for the current Marvel Star Wars comics 2015 onwards. Good reads and cannon so you get a lot of good tid bits of information.

- Star wars series is a good reliable read and does cross over for the Vader Down story this series runs parallel to Darth Vader, worth a read number two on my list.
- Princess Leia probably in my thoughts is the worst of the bunch, good if your a little girl though. feels like your going around in circles and I don't think they portray Leia as badass as she is in the movies.
- Shattered Empire was a let down, Ok but all the good parts were in the last comic.
- The big surprise of the bunch was Kanan, I really like rebels but this is more grittier, it does tie into a book I believe this would be a number three on my list.
- Chewbacca was OK sits just above Princess Leia another good run to read your daughter. feel good iron giant stuff.
- Lando was surprisingly good separate story from everything else but some good sith information.
- C3PO one shot got a lot of negativity as its revealed how he lost his arm, I enjoyed it, a little sad.
- Now the best part of the meal has got to be Darth Vader if you only have one choice this is it, some awesome information. Maybe I'm a Sith Fan but like Lando you get a bit of an insite of whats going on behind the scenes.
- I haven't yet started on Obi-Wan and Anikan or Poe Dameron.

Overall some really good artwork, I believe some compendiums are out now. Also a Han Solo series due soon.
