PRELUDE TO WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS: ‘RESTORATION’ Returned to the fold after his rebellion against the EMPEROR, DARTH VADER faces the horrors of reconstruction in the secret laboratories of CORUSCANT. As he blacks out under the knife, does he still dream of revenge against his master? Or do his thoughts drift towards his son – and the friends who make LUKE SKYWALKER so vulnerable? Don’t miss this next critical new chapter in Vader’s ongoing evolution – featuring the revelation of the first time the Dark Lord learned the name HAN SOLO! Rated T

PRELUDE TO WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS: ‘THE INVITATION’ DOCTOR APHRA and SANA STARROS find themselves cornered by VUKORAH and the UNBROKEN CLAN! Can they pull off a daring escape–even if that means surrendering the NIHIL HYPERDRIVE? And what sets them on a collision course with one of the most deadly BOUNTY HUNTERS in the galaxy? Rated T
I wanted to point out issues which have a final order cut off on Monday 5/24/2021. A sneaky second print of War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha made it onto FOC this week. The background is cast in a carbonite gray hue! If you’re not familiar, final order cutoff is when the distributor 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.
Titan sometimes offers variant covers of Star Wars Insider that they reveal just before final order cut off to drum up orders. Issue 203 is a trading card treatment of Ahsoka in the Rosario Dawson style from The Mandalorian Season 2. These sometimes heat up on the secondary market and now that fiction is back in Star Wars Insider, there are always little canon tidbits to consume!
