Miscellaneous Mentions and References:

Star Wars Adventures #30 (IDW 1/29/2020): I’ll admit that we’re starting out on a very minor key, if it can be called a key issue at all. One of the two tales in this issue references the villains of the High Republic, the Nihil, once as the alleged marauders who destroyed a library.

The Rise of Kylo Ren #3 ( Marvel 2/12/2020): Avar Kriss first appears here in a brief hologram in two panels. She is unnamed in this issue.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #6 (Marvel 11/25/2020): The First appearance of a “Path Engine”, Nihil technology that permits the Nihil to travel uncharted hyperspace paths and make short, burst jumps, including inside gravity wells of planets.
