We’re taking a little time off before recording our reviews of last week’s comics BUT just after Rogue One came out, Levins sat down with Steele Saunders, host of the Steele Wars Star Wars Podcast and I Love Green Guide Letters, for a long argument about Marvel’s Star Wars comics. Steele’s a diehard Star Wars fan, Levins is a devourer of comic books - and each read the new Star Wars comics from a very different angle. Will they put their differences aside long enough to decide which of the Star Wars comics is the best one? Tune in to this special episode to find out!
