Star Wars #45

The trial of Lando Calrissian continues! After selling secrets against the Rebel Alliance to save Lobot's life during the Dark Droid event, Lando must face his crimes.

This trade collects issues of Darth Vader (2020) #37-41, which covers the Dark Droids event from last year.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian — Season Two, Part Two

The second half of The Mandalorian Season 2 comic adaptation is here. Star Wars: The Mandalorian — Season Two, Part Two collects issues #5-8, which adapted the episodes that match those numbers.
