Star Wars Poe Dameron #29

The Poe Dameron title has followed the fighter pilot and his co-fighters during their adventures before and around The Last Jedi. This Star Wars comic features Dameron’s pilot friends: Snap Wexley, Jessika Pava and the Black Squadron and explains what they were up to during The Last Jedi.

This should add some context to what we didn’t get to see in The Last Jedi.

Star Wars Darth Vader Annual #2

In the Darth Vader annual, it looks as though Vader has his own agenda while also working for the Empire.

Here’s the synopsis of the annual:

"DARTH VADER intends for the Empire to hold no secrets for him — or from him. Which means it is time to dig into the pet project of GOVERNOR WILHUFF TARKIN and ORSON KRENNIC: the massive battle station being built on GEONOSIS. Opportunity arises when the project is hindered by sabotage from unknown forces. THE EMPEROR calls on his dark enforcer to root out the source of treachery that threatens to destabilize the Empire’s galactic ascent."
