Star Wars: Comics In Canon – Ep 39: Anakin Freeing Slaves, Mace’s Saber, Padmé’s Mission & Jar Jar Binks (Age Of Republic)

This episode of Star Wars: Comics In Canon features the final 4 stories in the Age Of Republic one-shot comic series, all set around the Clone Wars; Anakin Skywalker in “The Sacrifice”, Padmé Amidala in “Bridge”, “The Weapon” with Mace Windu and “501 Plus One” with Rex and Jar Jar Binks, Mike also gives some additional info about each of the characters and recommendations for season 1 of the Clone Wars.

The Age Of Republic comics Anakin Skywalker & Padmé Amidala were both written by Jody Houser, pencilled by Wilton Santos & Cory Smith, inked by Walden Wong (Marc Deering also inked Padmé) and Java Tartaglia was the colourist for both too.

Please note this episode was originally released in January of 2021 on the feed of Comics In Motion.

Master & Apprentice Book Review, Prophecies And Introducing Rael Averross – Star Wars: Comics In Canon Ep 28

This episode of Star Wars: Comics In Canon, brings the first book review on the show, all about Claudia Gray’s Master & Apprentice; a book set years before The Phantom Menace, focusing on Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi’s relationship and their mission on Pijal, along with flashbacks giving insight into Qui-Gon’s relationship with his master Dooku and 6 prophecies including the infamous Chosen One prophecy! 

Mike splits the podcast into 3 sections;  firstly the blurb and then his general thoughts on the book – all completely spoiler-free, the second part delves more into the plot & background information with only light spoilers, while the final part of the show contains a more in-depth look into the characters & events in the book and Mike reads a few parts of the book he especially enjoyed, including the epilogue, meaning there are spoilers within but he gives fair warning before entering these sections!
