Consider this reading order and variant checklist post your headquarters for the upcoming Marvel comics crossover event, Star Wars: Dark Droids.

Star Wars: Dark Droids, described as a “horror fueled epic”, is a limited series by Charles Soule (Darth Vader Vol 2, High Republic The Blade, Light of the Jedi) officially kicks off in August 2023.

Aside from the titled, Star Wars: Dark Droids, comics this series will also in include one-shot comics and will have crossover issues with the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Star Wars: Darth Vader, main Star Wars (also by Charles Soule) runs.

In other words, it will be structured similarly to Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters from 2021.

So what’s Star Wars: Dark Droids all about? Here’s the description from, “In Dark Droids, a mysterious new threat called the Scourge corrupts droids, cyborgs, and everything in-between, spreading chaos throughout the galaxy. Ajax Sigma, who first appeared in last year’s Star Wars: Revelations #1, will play a role in the saga — though his true intentions remain unknown.”

I will keep track of all release dates, variant covers, store exclusives, and proper reading order right here on this post.
