Zeen and Lula pursue Krix, hoping for a final confrontation between the two friends. Writer Daniel José Older, bestselling author of Star Wars: Last Shot, and artist Harvey Tolibao bring IDW into The High Republic, a massive publishing crossover spanning comics and prose!
FOC Highlights 6/14/2021
I wanted to point out issues which have a final order cut off on Monday 6/14/2021. 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.
First off, Cover B for Star Wars Adventures #6 has been revealed and Mari San Tekka is on the cover! Mar San Tekka is an ancestor of Lor San Tekka, the explorer who Poe Dameron meets in the opening scenes of the Force Awakens. So far, this is Mari’s first cover appearance, and suggests Mari shows up in this issue. Mari has a sort of precognitive sense that allows her to detect “Paths”, unconventional routes through hyperspace, which brought her family fame and fortune. She was abducted by Marchion Ro (or perhaps his predecessor) and now uses her abilities to advance the plans of the Nihil. Final Order Cut Off for Star Wars Adventures #6 is 6/14/2021. Be warned, though, this series has been plagued with delays for some reason. Cover A by the awesome Francesco Francavilla is also of course of Final Order Cut Off this Monday.
Then we have the next issue in the War of the Bounty Hunters crossover to hit Final Order Cut Off, Bounty Hunters #14. Most people are betting on this being the first full appearance of Deathstick, who made a last page unnamed cameo in this week’s Bounty Hunters #13.
The solicitation for Bounty Hunters #14 pretty much confirms this:
