It's a new era of Star Wars after the release of The Force Awakens. We're finally back to format as we break down the news of the week: Rey finally hits the toy stands, Hollywood's short list for young Han Solo, and more Poe Dameron in comic form! Cory also answers the burning questions of so many fans: What is the Resistance? What is their relationship with the New Republic? Wasn't the Empire defeated? We examine the state of politics in the Force Awakens era. Finally, Cory reviews the six-issue "Vader Down" comic arc from Marvel, as well as Charles Soule's new "Obi-Wan and Anakin".
