Explore Jedha of the High Republic Era and More from Marvel’s October 2022 Star Wars Comics – Exclusive Preview

Phase II of Star Wars: The High Republic begins with a relaunch of the titular comic, the Mandalorian searches for sanctuary, and much more!

Before the Starlight Beacon lit the way for the Republic, the moon of Jedha was a beacon of faith and spirituality, home to the Temple of Kyber. As Phase II of Star Wars: The High Republic kicks off this fall, the titular Marvel comic series will step back in time 150 years for a prequel to the events of Phase I. Reuniting writer Cavan Scott and artist Ario Anindito, issue #1 will introduce Vildar Mac, a Jedi embarking on a journey that will end in terror.

Get your first look below at the relaunch of Star Wars: The High Republic #1 and other Marvel Star Wars titles coming in October 2022 — including covers and solicits for the flagship Star Wars series, Chapter 4 in the adaptation of The Mandalorian on Disney+, and new installments in Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra.
