Star Wars Halcyon Legacy #3 featuring our favorite-child-turned-mass-murderer-turned-good-dad Anakin Skywalker and my first crush, Padme Amadala, was pushed back from it’s initial May 4th release day to Wednesday May 11th. And while I’ve been lukewarm on the Halcyon Legacy stuff so far, this issue does still have Anakin, Padme, and Ventress in it so it’s not like I’m going to skip it. Also just look at the Assaj cover below. Annie Wu brought the heat.

For those who aren’t familiar, FOC, or Final Order Cut Off, is when publishers and distributors require retailers to get their orders in. Printers then print according to that number (sometimes with overages). So, if you want to absolutely guarantee you get a book, best bet is to order it before FOC. Final Order Cut Off is Monday 5/9/22 this week.
We get some pretty amazing covers this week. Especially if you’re an action figure variant guy/gal. I’m personally all about that Yagawa Japanese Creator cover. Super unique for a Star Wars comic cover. Anywhooo… let’s dive in.
