At first I was like "WHAAAT??!!"
And then I did some research. Basically, as non-spoilery as I can be, the comics take place around 10 BBY. "A New Hope" doesn't take place until 0 BBY. That should tell you something.
[spoiler]Everybody thinks Boba's dead. He's either gonna be fake dead or really hurt but still alive. And he's definitely back by the last issue. Not sure of the specifics yet. But the biggest draw for me is that not only is Connor Freeman from the last "Blood Ties" arc coming back, Sintas and Ailyn Vel are apparently confirmed to show up. Pretty happy about that. Other then that, I enjoyed the last story arc so I'm looking forward to this one.
