There is nothing Star Wars canon loves more than relentlessly filling in the gaps between the movies. But sometimes there are pretty big questions left by the films that need explaining... like Marvel's latest comic answering how Phasma survived being tossed in the garbage on the exploding Starkiller Base to appear in The Last Jedi.

At Star Wars Celebration this year, IDW announced Star Wars Adventures, a new all-ages take on the galaxy far, far away, distinct from Marvel's Star Wars comic book offerings. That distinction is continuing with a new, stylised take on The Force Awakens, and we have a new look inside.
For a few months now, a pub in The Rocks has been holding an open-air movie night every Monday. It's part of the service at The Argyle, a pub in a 1820s building with a tunnel and cobblestone pathway to match.
To celebrate this year's Vivid festivities, the Argyle decided to host a screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens to celebrate. And since I named a stray dog Yoda with the help of my brother when I was 2, I felt compelled to go along.
John Romero cheekily sort-of-but-not-really revealed that he was working on something last week when a whole bunch of nonsense about a fake holographics company. And that came after he released a new DOOM level.
So if you weren't convinced already that he's making another video game, here's another trailer to set you right. It's basically Star Wars.
The most intriguing Star Wars books coming out have been the ones that flesh out the extensive gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Chuck Wendig's Aftermath was one of them, and now its sequel is going to tell us what Han and Chewbacca were up to after the destruction of the Death Star II.
Ever since Marvel announced that Poe Dameron would be getting his own Star Wars comic, we've been very eager to read it. Thankfully, it was worth waiting for. Just like the film that inspired it, Poe Dameron is a blast -- one lays down the groundwork for something even better come after it.
Fact: The X-Wing books were the best Star Wars books. Double fact: The Rogue Squadron comics from Dark Horse were awesome. Unassailable triple fact: Poe Dameron is the best. Bearing all this in mind, we're just a touch excited about Marvel's upcoming Poe Dameron comic, which seems to be a spiritual successor to the Rogue Squadron tales.
Forget C-3PO's new red arm. That enhancement is nothing compared to Yamaguchi Katuhisa's figure modifications of the two old, otherwise peaceful, robo-buddies.
Yesterday, we looked at ten things that sucked about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now it's time to explore the light side of the Force. Here are ten things that the new movie nailed perfectly.
Well technically, they're already here. Star Wars has been a staple of cosplay from the beginning. Has there ever been a geek costume so ubiquitous and instantly recognisable as Leia's metal bikini, after all? The new movies promise to be no different, with a whole new wave of Stormtroopers, droids and lightsaber-wielding goodies and baddies leading the cosplay charge into 2016.
