Star Wars Comic Timeline
« on: August 31, 2010, 11:54:17 AM »

Here is a timeline of all of the Star Wars comics that have been published. Where possible, the trade paperback editions of each storyline have been listed, rather than listing each single issue separately. By clicking on the title, you can go to the thread on that comic which includes a poll, book details, plot summary (many of these are not yet completed - feel free to write one if it isn't!), reviews, and comments/questions. As with most in-universe timelines, the Battle of Yavin marks year 0, and therefore dates will be BBY (Before Battle of Yavin) and ABY (After Battle of Yavin). Some collected editions take place in various time periods, but will only be placed in one spot for convenience (these are denoted with a single *). The Tales collections and Infinities books are listed separately at the bottom.

A note regarding the stories set during The Clone Wars Era:
The release of the animated 2008 Clone Wars television series has caused significant conflicts and contradictions in the dates and timelines that had already been established in the original Clone Wars material that was released between Episodes II & III. An attempt to reconcile this continuity mess was made by Robert A. Mullin in his SW:EU Chronology (which can be found at [urlhttp://www.starwarsfanworks.com/timeline/index2.html[/url). I think he did a rather good job of it, and decided to use his suggested timeline here. But I thought that it was too much of a mess to try to assign exact dates to these stories, so I have decided to list all of the comics that are set during the Clone Wars in one timeline "lump": THE CLONE WARS (22-19 BBY). It's not perfect, but it's probably as close as it's gonna get. (Of course as we all know, this isn't the only continuity that's been put in an awkward position by the new Clone Wars series!)

...Legacy (which is one of the ongoing series now).

Not any more. The final issue just came out 2 weeks ago. :( I've enjoyed this series, though haven't read past issue 35 yet.
A comic timeline could be fun to see. I've enjoyed various SW comics. I find them a little more accessible than the novels.

Yes, unfortunately Dark Horse seems to have decided to end all of their ongoing series, and go back to putting out 4-6 issue miniseries.
But some good news for Legacy fans: there is a 6-issue miniseries planned for December called "Legacy: War" which will continue on from issue #50.

Side note: I'm working hard on organizing the timeline information... it's kind of fun going through and seeing my all old favorites, as well as a few that I haven't gotten to read yet!

Amazing and a bit sad how much the whole graphic novel line has begun dominating the way of thinking at the comic book publishers (although that said, it makes better business sense to a smaller outfit like Dark Horse I guess). 

I wonder if people will now opt to just buy the eventual graphic novel rather than collect single issues as the mini-series progresses?  I believe the graphic novels are typically cheaper in the long run to get (plus they often have little or no ads).

I used to buy issues when they came out, but I admit I buy the TPBs now - they end up fitting better on the shelves, and are easier to sort, as you actually have binding with a title on...in some ways, I miss picking them up issue by issue, but for me, the advantages outweigh that (including the lower cost).

That's what happens when you collect the TPBs instead of the actual issues - my bad! :speechless-smiley-004:

I agree. I've heard several people make the same observation about the comics industry. Seems like many writers, and now publishers, have been writing with a trade paperback in mind. Lots of standalone miniseries, but even the ongoing series seem to be written in 4 or 6 issue story arcs, with the arc being put into trade form almost as soon as the last issue hits the stands. It does make sense from a business view - most mainstream bookstores sell TPBs, but single issues are usually only available at comics stores, which some people will just never walk into. It's also easy profit, since all the development work has already been done.

I used to buy issues when they came out, but I admit I buy the TPBs now - they end up fitting better on the shelves, and are easier to sort, as you actually have binding with a title on...in some ways, I miss picking them up issue by issue, but for me, the advantages outweigh that (including the lower cost).

Me too, I only buy TPBs. I usually buy them from TFAW.com, they have a great selection of "nick & dent" books which are usually 50% off the "new" price. The books are supposedly damaged, but most of the time I can't even see anything wrong with them. It's a great bargain, and TPBs also display nice on a shelf, not like single issues.


Does anyone here listen to the ComicGeekSpeak podcast? Those guys have some great insights and discussions about these kind of topics, among many many other comics-related things. Plus they're just fun to listen to. Check them out if you're a comics fan, or if you're interested in learning more about it!

The other issue with the "writing for the trade" thing is that comic companies always want a good "jumping on point". This is why Dark horse generally doesn't allow ongoing series to go beyond 50 issues. Randy Stradley was interviewed recently on a podcast and he said how stopping at 50 and starting up again with a mini alows them to bring in more new readers. Also collectors have always been obsessed with #1s. So starting with a new #1 could allow for a boost in sales.

I grew up only reading gi joe comics, and I used to love how Hama would weave story lines in and out of the run over long periods of time. Of course retconning happened (Hama is famous for not knowing where his characters were going in advance), but he would plant little seeds and they would not come to fruition for several, even dozens of issues. Death of the Hard Master is a perfect example of this. Great stuff. :) You seemingly don;t get these long term plot threads very often these days.

Except Randy didn't tell John and Jan that Legacy was ending at issue #50.

John was quoted last October, when someone suggested that Legacy would end at #50 because KotOR did, that there was no way Legacy would end at issue #50. >:(

I'm concerned that long term Dark Horse will be affected by leaving their creative teams in the dark like that.

I agree.  Plus, what's up with leaving brianakrobin in the dark on this?  Don't they know he moderates the EU forum on snowtroopers.ca and should be given this kind of info?! :P

Seriously, though, it doesn't seem to make sense - a popular series from the fans perspective, so it hurts the company there, but also to be upsetting some of your best talents...they may end up in the same kind of situation as LucasArts.

This won't just be a timeline, though, Jaazzman.  The idea is for an interactive timeline.  It not only is a timeline, and not only links to a plot summary of the comic series, but you can then post your comments about the series, rate the series, chat about plot points, etc.  It will be like the book timeline is on this site, which, in my mind, is much more than just a timeline.  If more people came, it would make it even better, as we could get more discussion.
