Star Wars – Comics

      No Comments on Star Wars – Comics

After Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise back in 2012, it created the Lucasfilm Story Group (LSG) to define what was the Star Wars canon. The LSG replaced the previous (quite complex and confusing) hierarchical canon with a simpler and cohesive one. This post includes the entire comics canon, and it will be updated as new comics get published. The comics are presented both in chronological and publication order.

Chronological Order

In this section we list all the new Disney canon comics (published or announced) along with the movies and TV series to provide context.

How did Caleb Dume escape the Jedi purge? How did he learn to survive on his own after his master fell? And how did he become the man we know as Kanan Jarrus?
