Now that Mandalorian Season 2 is finished, we will have to wait for new weekly live-action Star Wars! Even between Disney+ seasons and blockbuster film releases, we get new Star Wars just about every week in our local comic shop, though!
Here’s a look at the new Star Wars comic book releases hitting shelves at your local comic shop January 13, 2020! Brought to you by TFAW! Check out the official solicitations and previews for Star Wars comic books coming out next week below!
INTO THE FIRE, PART IV: THE ASSASSIN RETURNS
In his search for vengeance in the depths of MUSTAFAR, DARTH VADER has seized the mysterious key to the EMPEROR’S greatest secret. But the key itself needs a key — which only the deadly assassin OCHI OF BESTOON seems to have. Vader and Ochi are in for the fight of their lives with the fate of the Emperor in the balance — but how much of this is all PALPATINE’S plan? And what happens when the SITH LORD and the SITH ASSASSIN start to figure that plan out? FORMATComic PAGE COUNT28 pages COVER PRICE$3.99 DISTRIBUTOR SKUNOV200598
Final Order Cut-Off Highlights
I wanted to point out issues which have a final order cut off on 1/11/2021. If you’re not familiar, final order cutoff is when Diamond distributors locks orders and the publishers then print accordingly. So, if you want to absolutely guarantee you get a book, get your order in before then.
Both of these are from the new publishing initiative, the High Republic. People were having a hard time finding High Republic #1 this week from Marvel, so make sure you’re on top of orders for the next issues here. Both listed below name characters that have not shown up in comics yet. Be warned, first appearances are coming in February here.
IDW joins The High Republic with all-ages adventures tying into the larger High Republic story! Flaming destruction is coming to Trymant IV! A remnant of the Hyperspace Disaster appears in the sky, and Zeen and her best friend Krix have only minutes to get to the Elders of the Path and find safety! Meanwhile, Master Yoda, Master Baro, and a group of Padawans are racing towards the disaster for a daring rescue mission.
