New Star Wars Comics December 8, 2021

The countdown to the Book of Boba Fett December 29 premiere on Disney+ is on! I’ve been counting down 45 days of Boba Fett covers over on the WookyWiki Instagram!

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 December 8, 2021! Brought to you by TFAW! Check out the official solicitations and previews for Star Wars comic books coming out this week below! Also check out which books are on Final Order Cut Off December 5, 2021 and get your orders in before last call!

Crimson Reign #1 is the biggie next week. It will be packed with first full appearances. As we reported before, The Archivist, Sear, Imara Vex, and a number of other yet unnamed members of this rogues gallery made their first unnamed cameo appearance in War of the Bounty Hunters #5. The preview shows that meeting continuing.

First, “The Archivist” emerges from a Sith AND Jedi holocron. Apparently, the tales told from this holocron change depending on the side of the Force you use to access it from! Next, we get some dialogue from Qi’ra explaining her view of the galaxy, the premise for Crimson Reign, and what her motivations are. This is more than mere exposition. Her take on the galaxy and her goals are truly an intriguing development in Star Wars lore!

Finally, her rogues gallery from War of the Bounty Hunters #5 is in attendance to hear all this and we get some names. At least names to the groups they are part of. 616 Comics and Comics Elite claimed yesterday that this issue will be the first full appearance of a new character named Sear and so far she’s present as a part of Chanath Cha’s “Orphans”. Time will tell if she has more than the previous cameo she had in War of the Bounty Hunters #5.

And a late-breaking development gives us a name for the little guy who was line up in War of the Bounty Hunters #5! Ironically enough, his name is Massif! Thanks, Charles!
