Star Wars Comic is a British comic published monthly by Titan Magazines. It previously featured comic strips reprinted from Star Wars graphic novels, but now contains all-original content.

Publication history[edit]

A new volume of Star Wars Comic usually began around the time of a new movie release, but since the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated show aired on television it begins a new volume when a new series of the TV show is produced. So, in 2008, it began its fifth volume – now under the name of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Comic. Volume five ran for thirteen issues. It is currently on volume six.

The current editor is Jon Chapple. Previous editors include Steve White, Andrew James and Mark McKenzie-Ray.

Star Wars Galaxy[edit]

On 28 October 2010, Titan Comics launched a second Star Wars comic named Star Wars Galaxy. It is very similar to the old style of the main Star Wars comic which underwent a change in 2008 for its fifth volume. It is the size of a regular comic book, similar to Titan's DC Collector's Edition series which features titles such as Batman Legends. The final issue was number 24.
