Introduction to Star Wars Comics

Join our host Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) with special guests: Drew Dodson (@zombiegirl1385) the manager of Might Moose Comics in Bellevue, Washington (@mightymooseWA)

Today we will be talking about Comics, a little about the history of the Canon Marvel title. How to get into them and why you should if you haven’t already.

Also excuse Marie-Claire as she gushes over Vader 2015.

EDITORIAL NOTE: Not all of Marvel is Canon only from 2015 on – the earlier comics are Legends. For some reason that is not clear, both Drew and MC know that, but it comes out weird in the Podcast. *SHRUG*
