List of Star Wars comic books

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of comic books set in the fictional Star Wars universe. Dark Horse Comics owned the license to publish Star Wars comics exclusively from 1991 to 2014. Marvel Comics, which published Star Wars comics from 1977 to 1986, are once again publishing Star Wars titles starting in 2015. The only comics considered canon are those released starting in 2015. For a complete list of Star Wars novels please refer to Star Wars books.

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

This list is split into two categories:

CANON The new primary Star Wars canon includes all the movie episodes, the television shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, books published after April 2014, and comics published in 2015. These stories are coordinated by the Lucasfilm Story Team to be consistent with both each other and the upcoming films.

LEGENDS These books are part of the original Star Wars Expanded Universe, and vary in levels of canonicity. The new films will not be based on these stories, but some parts may still be incorporated into the films.

Note: BBY and ABY are the standards of measurement for years in the Star Wars galaxy. BBY stands for years before the Battle of Yavin, which occurred during Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. ABY stands for years after the Battle of Yavin.
