Comics this week are so amazing! I am so excited to share these with you!! Without further ado!
I give you Star Wars: Oi-Wan #5. Obi-Wan has closed his journals for now and looks ahead as night falls and the sandstorm that has sequestered him begins to clear. But he discovers something unexpected in the hazards of the Jundland Wastes…a squad of ambushed stormtroopers left to die. But one still has a fighting chance…and Obi-Wan may very well risk everything to save a single injured imperial stormtrooper that can’t help but remind Kenobi of the clones he served with for so long.
Our second comic is The Silver Coin #14. Lauren and Darren were working through their issues when a bad year hit. 2020 was when the world caught gore, their relationship went to hell, and a strange coin pushed things one step further.
Last but not least comic this week is Cover the Dead with Lime #2. Leaving Wivensea, Jack Teller: the lone plague Doktor has discovered the plague has shifted into an aggressive unearthly state of the epidemic. The victims are coming back to life to further spread the disease. By request of Annabeth Williams, Jack sets out to the neighboring town of Arlington as Teller’s past begins to be explained.
Welcome to the manga corner where we talk about all things manga! This week we only have one manga but it will blow your mind! Next week will also have some exciting news for the world of manga.
The manga this week is Correspondence from the End of the Universe. Russian recent college graduate Marko is looking forward to traveling the world with his lover. However, he is abducted by a mysterious being to the end of the universe, ruining his plans. That mysterious being assigns Marko a ten-year mission. All Marko can do is give his all to the mission and befriend his alien coworkers. This is a peculiar story depicting life in a place far removed from Earth.
