Star Wars comics in October see Han Solo’s end (literally), but not the star, while Sgt. Kreel and his SCAR team face off vs. Luke Skywalker, Leia and company aboard the Harbinger and Finn, Han and Chewbacca set off to save Rey from the First Order.
Poe Dameron, the Resistance’s best pilot continues his ongoing rivalry with First Order agent superior Terex, too.
Missing from the October line up? A third monthly series to replace Star Wars: Darth Vader, which ends in August.
In Star Wars: Poe Dameron #7, Terex seems to know what Poe is doing even before Poe does. Is there a traitor amid Black Squadron? Writer Charles Soule and artist Phil Noto tell the story in the 32-page, $3.99 issue out Oct. 5. Look for a variant cover by Terry and Rachel Dodson.
On Oct. 12, Chuck Wendig nears the end of six-issue adaptation of The Force Awakens, with #5 focusing on Rey’s capture by the First Order and Finn helping plan a mission to rescue her with Han Solo and, perhaps, destroy Starkiller Base. The $3.99 issue is 32 pages, is drawn by Luke Ross and features covers by Rafael Pinto Albuquerque.
Writer Marjorie Liu and artist Mark Brooks bring about the end of the five-issue Star Wars: Han Solo mini-series, that draws readers to the conclusion of the Dragon Void race. The 32-page issue sells for $3.99 and will have covers by Kamome Shirahama, Kevin Wada, Joelle Jones, Cameron Stewart and Mike Del Mundo. It’s out Oct. 19.
Finally, on Oct. 26, Jason Aaron and Jorge Molina continue the epic Harbinger story arc in Star Wars that has Sgt. Kreel and SCAR aboard the fabled star destroyer as they seek to prevent the Rebel Alliance from stealing the ship and stopping Luke, Leia and company at all costs. The 32-page issue sells for $3.99 and features a sketch cover variant by Mike Deodata and action-figure cover by John Tyler Christopher.
