Hey Hey! Let’s talk final order cutoffs! This week we have deadlines for two very fun looking comic issues in two very different eras. First up we get a flashback to a Clone Wars battle that appears to include General Kenobi, Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, and Commander Cody.
The creators if this story seem pretty excited to share what they’ve created with us too. Here’s what writer Chris Cantwell and artist Alessandro Miracolo had to say a few months back when this issue was announced…
Then we get Doctor Aphra. The odd thing is that the Cover A appears to just be a zoomed in version of Doctor Aphra #21. Which is odd.
Let’s continue to look ahead with this week’s order deadlines.
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 6/07/22 this week.
This week we get the first cover appearance of Fennec Shand on a traditional comic book.
Let’s dive in…

THE BATTLE OF ABRION BRIDGE! While continuing to wait out a nasty sandstorm on Tatooine, Obi-Wan reflects on one of his most grueling experiences in the Clone Wars… It’s a memory full of pain and bloodshed, and one that has lasting consequences. The battle also reminds Obi-Wan of an age-old question he has long wrestled with throughout his life: what is a Jedi’s true purpose in war?

As I write this we don’t yet know what the Sprouse “Choose Your Destiny variant cover for this. I’m going to guess Mace Windu or Anakin Skywalker. See the full list of Sprouse Choose Your Destiny variants on our checklist here.
UPDATE: I was wrong. It’s Kit Fisto. I’ll take it!

As I write this we don’t yet know what the Sprouse “Choose Your Destiny variant cover for this. I’m going to guess we go dark side and get Dooku. See the full list of Sprouse Choose Your Destiny variants on our checklist here.
UPDATE: I was wrong on this one too. While it was a dark side character we are getting Ventress instead of Dooku.
That’s all for now folks. We’ve got plenty more in the hopper.
