Everything is connected in the new Star Wars universe. The TV shows, movies, and books, all tell one cohesive story. That’s part of the way Lucasfilm and Disney are now doing business in a galaxy far, far away and a brand new endeavor spotlighting that singular story was just announced.
Next year, Marvel will release a comic series called Star Wars – Kanan: The Last Padawan. Kanan is one of the stars of Star Wars Rebels. He’s voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. and is the lone Jedi on the crew. However, in a time where all Jedi are being hunted down and murdered, that’s not exactly a great thing to be. This comic will tell how he got to that point.
Star Wars – Kanan: The Last Padawan hits shelves in April. Below, see the cover of the first episode and read more from writer and Star Wars Rebels executive producer Greg Weisman. Read More »

Harry Potter is a story that’s going to pass through the generations. Like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings before it, J.K. Rowling’s books and movies about a boy wizard destined to save the world have cemented themselves into history. They’re almost our version of cave drawings, which leads us to this new Potter creation.
Artist Lucy Knisley took all seven Harry Potter books – thousands of pages – and boiled it down to one single comic strip. A long comic strip, but a comic strip none the less. It’s pretty excellent. Check out the full Harry Potter comic below. Read More »

At the comic shop, Kick-Ass is over. The final issue of the series, Kick-Ass 3 #8, recently hit shelves, ending a six-year run for writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr. That run didn’t only begin with the comics though. Filmmaker Matthew Vaughn developed the first Kick-Ass movie in tandem with Millar and Romita Jr. and hit theaters in 2010. It wasn’t a massive theatrical hit, but enjoyed success overall and spawned a film sequel in 2012. Kick-Ass 2, directed by Jeff Wadlow, was much less successful.
