Hello hello! After a week where we got FOUR new Star Wars comics and a new Star Wars Legends Epic Collection, and a ton of new cover reveals (check out the @drunkwooky Instagram for the reveals) there’s a ton to get caught up. Does that mean we’ll slow down? Voids no you kriffin’ nerf herder! The Star Wars content train is rolling ahead full steam.
I also wanted to wish all my American friends a safe and happy 4th of July and my Canadian friends an amazing Canada Day!
Let’s continue to look ahead with this week’s new comics and FOC order deadlines.
Next week we’ll get a new scoundrel story in Halcyon Legacy #5 that features Maz Kanata, Lando, and my boy Hondo. No obvious keys from the one preview we’ve gotten so far but when I see Hondo, I buy. But that’s just me.
TFAW is also expecting to start getting in their graded copies of their beautiful store exclusive of Obi-Wan #1 by Ken Lashley.

Fast approaches the ultimate destiny of one of the Jedi’s most renowned masters! As he spends his final days in the remote deserts of Tatooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi takes time to reflect on – and record – key moments of a heroic life long-lived. Writing in old leather-bound journals from his hermit’s hut, Obi-Wan remembers his days as a young Jedi Initiate, his trials as a Padawan, the crucible of Jedi Knighthood and the Clone Wars, and some of the earliest challenges he faced as a true Master of the Force! In this tale, Obi-Wan considers a watershed Youngling adventure he narrowly survived on Coruscant when he was but eight years of age… This is just the beginning of his Jedi journey!
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 7/04/22 this week.
Let’s dive in…
