What We’re Reading: Marisa Shultz

Ever since the release of the final episode of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television show earlier this month, it has been non-stop Star Wars content in my home.

Re-watching the movies (check), re-watching The Mandalorian (check), eagerly waiting for updates on the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi television show (check). There’s been a lot of watching involved, so I decided to turn to a different medium this week – graphic novels.

I recently read Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir (2014) from Marvel.

Fast-paced and to the point, it fills in a few gaps in Maul’s story and runs parallel to some of the events of the Clone Wars show. I am also excited to read another graphic novel in the same series, this one simply titled Darth Maul (2017), which is about his early years prior to the events of The Phantom Menace.

If you were hoping for a less narrative-driven and more historically-based reading recommendation, you can check out my thoughts on Noam Sienna’s ground-breaking book A Rainbow Thread: An Anthology of Queer Jewish Texts from the First Century to 1969 in our JMM Insights: Passover in a Time of Quarantine.
