Marvel and Star Wars Yoda comic via 360 magazine

STAR WARS: YODA

Announced this past weekend at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, Yoda will star in a brand-new Marvel Comics limited series this October. A ten-issue epic, STAR WARS: YODA will take place during Yoda’s self-imposed exile on Dagobah as he reflects on past adventures. The centuries-spanning saga will be divided into three arcs by three separate creative teams, each set during key moments in the Jedi Master’s long and legendary life.

New York Times bestselling author Cavan Scott and artist Nico Leon will kick things off with a story set during the Star Wars: The High Republic era. They’ll be followed by writers Jody Houser and Marc Guggenheim and artists Luke Ross and Alessandro Miracolo with stories set just before the Prequel Trilogy and near the end of the Clone Wars. Scott and Leon will return to complete the saga in the final issue. Yoda’s first-ever solo comic series, STAR WARS: YODA will reveal unexplored aspects of the Jedi Master’s storied history and shed new light on the mystery that surrounded the iconic character since his debut.

“I’ve been lucky to write Yoda in various projects over the last few years, most notably in Dooku: Jedi Lost, and every time I write him my love for him deepens,” Scott told StarWars.com. “It’s fair to say that my study at home is a shrine for three Star Wars icons: there are a lot of Obi-Wan figures; many, many, many, MANY pieces of Ewok merchandise (do I love those murder bears more than the Lepi? Don’t tell Jaxxon, but there’s every chance!); and then there is Yoda. The little guy is everywhere, in models, in art, and in lots of LEGO. Yoda casts a long shadow over anything he appears in, and writing him is a privilege and a responsibility I take seriously.”

“I’ve been wanting to do a Yoda book since I started working on the STAR WARS titles,” Editor Mark Paniccia added. “Yoda is a very special character to me as he is to everyone working on this series. We all have our hearts and souls in this and I hope the fans enjoy it as much as we have putting it together. It’s really unique and I’m very proud of it.” 

Check out Phil Noto’s cover for the debut issue below and see the legendary Jedi Master like you never have before when STAR WARS: YODA #1 arrives in October! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

The Silent Sea – Netflix

By: Kai Yeo

Korean dramas have been popular, but it seems like they are even more on the rise in 2021. Ahem, Squid Game. K-dramas are known for their high production value, character arcs and engrossing storylines. While most of them are only 16-20 episodes, quality acting allows the audience to build a connection and become emotionally invested.

Looking for something to binge over the holidays? Part of the Top 10 trending shows on Netflix is a K-drama titled The Silent Sea. A Netflix original, sci-fi series that has been catching global attention, and is already at a 70% score less than a week after release. On top of positive reviews, the fascinating plot has been all the buzz on film socials. Before you start this series, you probably want to know the gist of what it is about – we got you covered.

The Silent Sea

The Silent Sea narrates the story of an earth that has been ravaged by drought, and a large crew must travel to an abandoned base on the moon to retrieve a sample. This sample supposedly contains what will save the world… but we are not quite sure what it is yet. Watch the trailer here.

The Synopsis via Netflix:

“During a perilous 24-hour mission on the moon, space explorers try to retrieve samples from an abandoned research facility steeped in classified secrets.”

Will they ever return to Earth? What lies ahead on their mission? So many questions and no answers, you’ll just have to tune in to find out. What we do know, though, is the stellar cast in this new release. Starting with the instantly recognizable leads: Train to Busan’s Gong Yoo and Sense8’s Bae Doona, acting as the caption of the mission and lead scientist respectively.

If you’ve been keeping up with the Korean film industry, most of these other actors might also be familiar to you:

With such a big crew, many unprecedented things happen, but The Silent Sea provides a lot of mystery and interesting plot twists by the end. While saying anything more would include spoilers, it was certainly a wild ride. A refined production that will be high on our sci-fi list for a little bit.

Marvel Comics Crossover Event

Marvel Comics’ latest crossover event includes DEVILS REIGN and Venom’s new era with printings of both DEVILS REIGN #1 AND VENOM #2. These issues will be available beginning February 9 with second printing covers. Venom artwork included is created by Francesco Mobili.

Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s DEVIL’S REIGN #1 takes us along Kingpin’s story as now mayor of New York City. We follow along as Kingpin battles with channeling his criminal but also political powers with the superheroes of NYC. Setting out for icons like Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Jessica Jones and more, since it’s Fisk, he’s waiting such a long time to take over, and has a lot in store.

New symbiote saga kicks off in Ram V, Al Ewing and Bryan Hitch’s VENOM #1. Developments for the father-son duo Eddie and Dylan Brock diverge as each author places their focus on varying characters. Ewing takes us along Eddie’s story as the “King in Black,” and Ram V marks Dylan’s start as a true Super Hero. The two divergent stories come together to produce a new tale.

The most recent symbiote saga persists in Ram V and Bryan Hitch’s VENOM #2. The authors have generated a mind-twisting and turning saga that takes both Eddie and Dylan Brock to new places. You won’t want to miss this brand new, action-packed take on the Venom mythos created by such an innovative team. Check your local comic shop for availability; find a comic shop near you HERE.

Rising Hyperpop Artist midwxst New Song – Made It Back

Midwxst, born Edgar Sarratt III, shares the new song and video “Made It Back” via Geffen Records. Directed by Elan Bia / No Soap, the visual is a cinematic sci-fi thriller that merges animations with surrealism for the perfect counterpart to midwxst’s glitched out, genre-crossing sound. The song follows the previously-released single “Ruthless” and his Summer03 EP released earlier this year.

Midwxst is the next generation’s ideal superstar. He’s a cutting-edge artist from the oft-overlooked state of Indiana, a genre-defier combining hyperpop and digicore with hip-hop alongside candid lyrics that reveal he isn’t afraid to let his true feelings show. Midwxst shares, “A lot of people expected me to be a trapper, rapping about guns and all the generic mainstream stuff. When I talk about how your own mental health and emotions can be the most dangerous thing you possess, especially as a teenager or young adult, people get such a different vibe from me and that’s what I strive for.” Midwxst will be performing at Overcast N Friends on October 9th and Day N Vegas Festival November 12th — 14th.

Listen to and watch “Made It Back” above and stay tuned for more from midwxst coming soon.

Tour Dates:

10/9 — Philadelphia, PA @ Overcast N Friends

11/12-14 — Las Vegas, NV @ Day N Vegas

AREA21 – Pogo

Following the release of “La La La,” AREA21‘s debut single which has already surpassed 5 million combined streams, the adventure continues with today’s release of “Pogo.” The song exudes the feeling of being completely uninhibited, living life wild and free, which makes it the perfect soundtrack for the coming summer months. Written by Martin Garrix and Maejor, Martin also plays electric guitar on the track, one of the many talents from this multifaceted artist. Like most of their previous work, the track is a clean electronic dance bop. 

AREA21’s video for “Pogo” picks up where “La La La” left off with the two alien travelers M & M having crashed landed on earth, standing on their recently crashed spaceship and running from the law. Their escape includes a very unorthodox mode of transportation and ends with a rest stop in a futuristic Las Vegas, Nevada. 

About AREA21 

The music of AREA21 follows a story arc of two alien travelers, M & M, who are tripping through the cosmos spreading a message of unity and good vibes when they accidentally come crashing to Earth. Their adventures are portrayed musically and visually throughout a series of songs and accompanying animated videos produced by award-winning animation studio, Titmouse (Run the Jewels, Dua Lipa,) set to roll out this spring & summer and culminating in an album due out this fall.

H3000 – Running

“Running” is the second track to be released from H3000. It follows “July Heat,” which Billboard named as one of the best new dance tracks, noting, “Together [Luke Steele and Jarrad Rogers] conjure the futuristic vibes of the year 3000, with their first single “July Heat” giving an optimistic vision of the far-off future. The vocals are pitched up to sound like robots, and the track is a dually spare and brightly glitchy amalgamation that’s altogether sleek as the chrome on your hovercraft.” It’s an interesting electronic track that is simultaneously catchy but also beautifully surreal in it’s instrumentals. 

The two artists met in Steele’s adopted hometown of Los Angeles. Steele recalls, “It was the start of summer in California, which is always such a great time. We just connected. The band is about the heavens and what will be the issues of the heart in the year 3000.”

That connection in the spirit is present across the entire album, each song a hypnotic synthesis of pop, electronic music, and classic song writing that plays like a world unto itself. Steele channels a vision beyond the screen into breathtaking lyrics and melody. Rogers is a perfect yang to Steele’s yin, adding a grounding physicality to Steele’s unmoored writing. A sublime union in the mold of Bowie and Eno or Tennant and Lowe, there’s something more than the sum of its parts here, an alchemical spark that’s easy to hear but hard to describe. 

Whether that’s to the fragility of the human heart, a transformative tragedy or the love of the strange, H3000 comes about from a chance encounter and a musical world yet to be explored. Join “LUKE 18” and “MSTR ROGERS” on this transcendental journey as they take on the year 3000 together.  

About H3000

H3000 is a new creative project from world-renowned musicians Luke Steele and Jarrad Rogers. The Australian-born duo merge deep emotional states with advanced technologies to create transcendental works of music and art, unlike anything fans have experienced before. H3000 will see Steele and Rogers transformed into LUKE 18 and MSTR ROGERS, respectively, for a boundary-breaking visual experience. Both Steele and Rogers have enjoyed major critical and commercial success with their past musical projects. Steele is well known from his days as the dynamic front man for the multi-Platinum selling act, Empire Of The Sun, while Rogers has written and produced for chart-topping artists including Charli XCX, Rita Ora, Lana Del Rey and Avicii, to name a few.
