What is with the Star Wars Comic hate?

– Christian Støa


Hey Christian,

Thanks for sending in your question. I don’t know if there’s any way to answer this on behalf of everyone at Talking Comics. I know there’s a lot of guffawing the titles that they come up with for the comics, but truthfully I don’t think any of the core TC crew have read the Star Wars comics, so it’s mainly just a dig at the various titles.

Again, I might be wrong but while the core crew like the Star Wars films, I don’t think any of us are really devoted fans to the franchise and subsequently, not that interested in checking out the comics.

However, from big fans of the Star Wars movies, I’ve heard that the comics actually do a pretty stellar job of being true to what made Star Wars such a big deal in the first place. That being said, if you have any recommendations for us as far as the Star Wars comics go, I’m sure we would be happy to give them a shot and report back on what we think


You can read all about Shenani-Girl and our other podcasting superheroes over on the Talking Comics Top Secret Database.

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right?…

What's your reaction?
