New on WookyWiki.com this Week (6/21/2021)!

Hello, Everywookiee! As you may know, we launched our sister site, WookyWiki.com, the Star Wars comics first appearance and key issue database earlier this year! We have been steadily updating the entries while chasing the ever elusive goal of a comprehensive database for Star Wars comics! Today, I figured I would start by updating you with weekly additions to show how the database is coming along! We’re updating one year at a time in chronological publishing order! This week, we’re moving into 1978 while updating new weekly releases!

As always, you can check out all these entries and more from the entire history of Star Wars comics publishing over at WookyWiki.com!

Barriss Offee Cameos, First Appearances, and Keys

Last week, rumors started circulating that the Ahsoka Disney+ show is casting for an actress that may fit the description of Jedi Knight, Barriss Offee. This led to some interest in cameos, first appearances and Barriss Offee key issues.

Barriss made her first comic book cameos in the Attack of the Clones Dark Horse Comic adaptations. The Trade Paperback collecting all four issues was released in early April 2002 and she made background appearances, unnamed, without dialogue in about half a dozen pages. For those who prefer a conventional monthly comic book or “floppy”, her first cameo was in Attack of the Clones Issue #1 by Dark Horse, 4/24/2002. She also made a cameo in Attack of the Clones Issue #2 and Republic #58. Barris was named in Republic #58, but she had no dialogue.

Republic #65 is the closes we come to Barriss’ first full appearance as distinct from her previous cameos. Some contend that Barriss Offee’s first comic appearance is Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures FCBD 2004. While Free Comic Book Day is usually held in May, in 2004, Free Comic Book Day was held on July 3, making Republic #65, released 6/2/2004, Barriss’ first full comic appearance. In both the FCBD 2004 and Republic #65, Barriss Offee is on multiple pages and panels, speaks, and is identified by name. Republic #65 was released first, however.

Finally, after Disney’s purge of Dark Horse publications from Canon, Forces of Destiny Ahsoka & Padme became Barriss Offee’s first canon comic appearance on January 24, 2018.
