When it comes to Star Wars comics, there seems to be a little something for everyone this month — and this week especially.

From more Dark Droids tie-in material to the epic conclusion of a knockout series to more High Republic goodness, here are all the Star Wars comics coming out this week that you can read starting today.

Bounty Hunters 41

Written by Ethan Sacks, illustrated by Davide Tinto and Arif Prianto, and published by Marvel Comics, Bounty Hunters 41 is the 41st issue of the ongoing series featuring bounty hunters old and new. This issue is another Dark Droids tie-in that you aren’t going to want to miss (though if you haven’t read previous installments of the crossover event, you might want to do that first). There are only a few issues of this series left, so now is a great time to get caught up before the final chapter lands next year.

Hyperspace Stories 12

Written by Cecil Castellucci, illustrated by Andrea Mutti, and published by Dark Horse Comics, Hyperspace Stories 12 is the twelfth and final issue of the ongoing series. In this issue, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi (1983), readers can see the Battle of Endor from a completely new perspective. You’re not going to want to miss this finale.

The High Republic: Shadows of Starlight 3

Written by Charles Soule, illustrated by Jethro Morales and Chris Sotomayor, and published by Marvel Comics, The High Republic: Shadows of Starlight 3 is the third installment in the Shadows of Starlight miniseries. While the first two issues of the series focused on different characters dealing with the aftermath of the fall of Starlight Beacon — first Yoda, then Elzar Mann and Avar Kriss — this issue will follow Jedi Knight Bell Zettifar. And his ever-faithful charhound Ember, of course!

These comic issues are available today wherever you get your Star Wars comics. You can usually find new Star Wars comics at your local shops or online if you want your new issues as soon as they become available each week.
