As Star Wars chugs along with new episodes of The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch on Wednesday, we continue to also get brand new comics! It’s a lighter week for Star Wars comics, but that doesn’t mean we’re not getting some awesome stuff.
New Star Wars Comics: Yoda #5
In the only new comic this week, there is a rise of the Dark Side! In Yoda #5, darkness is growing among the newest Jedi apprentices. Will the threat be identified and neutralized by Master Yoda and Master Dooku? Or will the dark side of the Force mislead its impressionable students?
Yoda #5 is written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Luke Ross, with cover art by Phil Noto.
You can pick up Yoda #5 from your local comic book shop today!
New to Marvel Unlimited: Hidden Empire #2
Catch up on Hidden Empire with the second issue dropping on Marvel Unlimited today! In addition to losing many of her main resources and supporters, Lady Qi’ra’s plans to utilize an ancient Dark Side weapon known as the Fermata Cage to kill the Sith are disintegrating as Darth Vader gets closer. Can she turn a defeat into a victory?
Hidden Empire #2 is written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Steven Cummings, with cover art by Paulo Siqueira.
New to Collected Editions: Star Wars Legends: The Rebellion Omnibus Vol. 1, Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Old Republic Vol. 5
Star Wars comics strike gold this week in some old legends material bundled up in collected editions! In The Rebellion Omnibus Vol. 1, the rebels have recently defeated the Empire in a significant battle following the events of A New Hope, and now they must win the war! Darth Vader is fixated on identifying the rebel pilot who torpedoed the Death Star, but when the fates of Vader and Luke Skywalker start to converge, neither can foresee how the two will be connected—even as the ghost of the deceased Obi-Wan Kenobi haunts them both! In the meantime, Princess Leia works to reassemble the rebel troops and has secret plans for her own X-Wing squadron. Han Solo and Chewbacca are up against the bounty hunter Boba Fett while Luke and Wedge Antilles infiltrate the Imperial fleet.

Meanwhile, in The Old Republic Vol. 5, The Old Republic comes to an end! A squad of daring Jedi continues their hit-and-run missions as the Sith take control of the galaxy, but Jedi Knight Kerra Holt’s first mission ends disastrously. Now, Kerra wants to free as many innocent people as she can while also learning the truth about her family’s disappearance! But is she the only one who can prevent the Sith from annihilating the Republic? Then, as Lord Hoth’s Army of Light battles the Brotherhood of Darkness in an effort to put a stop to the intergalactic war, learn about the beginnings of the Sith rule of two, one master and one apprentice!
