New Star Wars Comics & Books For September 20, 2023

New Star Wars Comics Sept 20 2024

Hello there and welcome to the weekly new Star Wars comics post where I break down all-new comics & books coming out next week, September 20, as well as all Star Wars comics with a final order cutoff next Monday, September 18!

Let’s dig in shall we?

READ NEXT: Star Wars: Visions – Takashi Okazaki #1 Coming In 2024!

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #38 by Ethan Sacks and David Tinto – Somehow Grievous has returned! Valance is in the clutches of Tarr Kligson and is at even more risk of losing whatever is left of his mind. Apparently Grievous plays a role in the story. How? Not sure yet but I’d imagine it’s through flashbacks. Should provide some fun lore. The E.M. Gist Cad Bane cover is a work of art and the Barends 1:25 is too bad ass.

Star Wars: Dark Droids – D-Squad #1 by Marc Guggenheim, Salva Espin and David Messina – I wrote about this comic in the preview post I posted yesterday. Check that out here.

The big thing to know is that this issue includes a 10 page bonus story called “The Book of Ajax” that looks like it will feature some new High Republic Jedi as part of flashbacks about Ajax Sigma’s past. The preview had 4 Jedi in it that I did not recognize. Also the 1:50 variant is the first cover app of Ajax Sigma.

Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures – The Nameless Terror TPB by George Mann – Collects all four issues of the mini-series.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters TPB Vol 6 – Bedlam on Bestine by Ethan Sacks – this trade paperback collects Bounty Hunters #29-34

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, the best bet is to order it before FOC. Final Order Cut Off is Monday 9/18/23 this week.
