Dark Horse to Publish Rebels Magazine Comics in Trade Paperback in July

Dark Horse begins their second era of publishing Star Wars comics this year and they are starting out with a big bang! We already have their first announcement of a High Republic monthly series. Now, in March 2022 solicits, we find a Star Wars Rebels trade paperback reprinting comics from Rebels Magazine #1-35, 37, and 39, plus Rebels Animation Magazine #1-4. This is a landmark event, because most of this material has never been printed in the United States before. Beyond that, the European editions of the magazines have been incredibly hard to find on the traditional secondary markets like ebay without going to ebay.de or ebay.co.uk

The trade paperback will be on shelves 7/6/22.

Keep you eyes peeled on TFAW for pre-orders to go live.

Rebels Magazine was published first in the UK and Europe under Egmont and Panini, and the magazines began releasing in the United States under Titan Magazines. However, the magazines only ran from issue #1 (October 20, 2015) through issue #6 (August 16, 2016) in the United States. The issues continue to run through #22 in the UK. The remaining run, plus Rebels Animation Magazine continued through October 2018 in Germany and Russia. Most of this material did appear in K-Zone Magazine in Australia. But, most of this material hasn’t appeared in English in the United States.

These magazines contain tons of important true first before first appearances and key issue in the U.S.

The European releases (under Egmont and Panini) of Rebels Magazine #3 contain the first comic appearance of the Grand Inquisitor almost a full year before Kanan 12. 

Rebels Magazine #16 (4/2016)(again the Egmont European version only, the Titan version was later) precedes Darth Vader 6 and contains an earlier depiction of Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister in a comic:
