New Star Wars Comics And Books For Next Week + FOC Deadlines

Hey hey everywookiee! It’s that time again to look at what’s coming up next week + what’s at stake for this week’s FOC deadline. On tap for August 10th is Han Solo and Chewbacca #5 and Star Wars Bounty Hunters #26 including a handful of key cover appearances.

Also out this week are a few books including Star Wars Legends Epic Collection The Clone Wars Volume 4 and the much anticipated 500+ page Star Wars Rebels Trade Paperback from Dark Horse Comics.

Let’s check it out.

Han Solo and Chewbacca 5

It’s interesting to see pre-retired/un-retired T’onga in a comic. She has some series page time now as she’s been in comics since her first appearance in Star Wars Bounty Hunters #1.

The two variants are interesting to me as well. First of, the Sprouse Chooses Your Destiny cover is Keeve Trennis. One of the main characters of the High Republic and very popular character among fans.

Also, while Buck Vancto first appeared in Han Solo and Chewbacca #1, the 1:25 Variant of Han Solo and Chewbacca #5 by David Lopez is their first cover appearance.

“LET’S KEEP A LITTLE OPTIMISM HERE.” But optimism is hard to come by with the Millennium Falcon gone and Han and Chewie in their toughest spot ever! Greedo is back and boy, is he mad!

Featuring the returns of Marshal Buck Vancto and Khel Tanna. Which one is going to get their hands on Han first? All this and more in the rip-roaring conclusion of “The Crystal Run.”

Star Wars Bounty Hunters #26

A few interesting things about this issue. In regards to the story I really hope we see Qi’ra fight someone other than Darth Vader as the cover A suggests. I want to see cartoon Emilia Clarke bust some heads.

From a comic speculation standpoint the Sprouse Choose Your Own Destiny cover includes Reva aka The Third Sister’s first cover appearance. Considering she’s still alive and kickin’ in the live action universe it’s not a bad pickup in my opinion.

THE SHOCKING ENDING TO THE BOUNTY HUNTERS’ RAID ON THE VERMILLION!
•  T’onga must face Crimson Dawn on her own to save the girl she seeks.
•  Meanwhile, one of her crew may not survive Vukorah’s deadly revenge.
•  And Dengar may finally be getting exactly what he deserves.

Star Wars Comic Book FOC 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 8/8/22 this week.

Let’s dive in…

Star Wars 27

Red revenge! Lady Qi’ra not only insulted the Empire, but challenged it. In the end, Darth Vader showed her criminal organization that the Empire is not to be toyed with. But now, fearful whispers echo in every corner of the Empire: Darth Vader is on the hunt, searching for anyone with any connection to the Crimson Dawn. How deep has the Dawn infiltrated the galaxy, and are all their operations worthy of Vader’s wrath?

In the bowels of Bespin, Darth Vader once told his son he wanted to bring order to the galaxy. Now his promise is put to the test as he leads an unlikely crew of heroes and assassins against the Crimson Dawn! But everything gets thrown into question with the shocking return of Sabé, handmaiden of Padmé Amidala!
