Star Wars: Age of Republic – Obi-Wan Kenobi #1
(Marvel)
THE EARLY DAYS OF OBI-WAN KENOBI, JEDI KNIGHT! Following the wishes of his master, OBI-WAN has taken on ANAKIN SKYWALKER as an apprentice. Will his mission alongside his young Padawan bring them closer together, or sow the seeds that will drive them apart?
And who else is after the ancient holocron that they seek?

Star Wars: Han Solo Imperial Cadet #3
(Marvel)
CASINO ROYALE!
HAN SOLO gets demoted for insubordination – dragging his fellow cadets down with him. They go from flying TIE fighters to flying a giant cargo ship. Han’s expert flying cuts their cargo ship’s flight time in half, allowing them to stop at a casino for some hard-earned R&R.
But Han’s fellow cadets quickly learn this little ‘vacation’ was NOT authorized by the Empire and, thanks to Han, they’re all considered AWOL!
Variant covers: None
