Even between Disney+ seasons and blockbuster film releases, we get new Star Wars just about every week in our local comic shop!
Here’s a look at the new Star Wars comic book releases hitting shelves at your local comic shop September 15, 2021! Brought to you by TFAW! Check out the official solicitations and previews for Star Wars comic books coming out this week below!

Next week is War of the Bounty Hunters week again in the Star Wars Galaxy! Check out my preview write up for Boushh #1 from yesterday! Boushh, his gang, and what looks like a new mystery lady make their first full comics appearances in Boushh #1 next week along with cover appearances on the Noto and Randolph covers. Full analysis of past Boushh appearances can be found here.
War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1
As we’ve been discussing this week and for a while now, this will be Boushh’s first full comic appearance. Although Leia has appeared many times in Boushh’s disguise and Boushh has had one web comic appearance never reprinted in physical media and a cameo, this will be the first full comic appearance of the Ubesian Bounty Hunter in the classic disguise. He also comes with a whole gang of other Ubesians and a mystery woman on the Noto and Randolph covers.

Final Order Cut Off
Marvel have recently moved their final order cut off dates back to Sunday from Monday. This week’s is 9/12/2021. Seeing as many local comic shops and even some of the larger retailers very well might finalize orders on the Friday before rather than do it over the weekend, this functionally makes Marvel’s new FOC Friday 9/10/2021. IDW’s remains Monday 9/13/2021. Things just got more complicated for those keeping track of these things. Hooray!
