I've got several questions... When do the Annuals take place in relation to the regular issues? What numbers were the U.K.-only issues released as? Then I could see when they occured within the other Marvel U.S. comics. ( These were reprinted for the digests of course, but no issue and detailed original publishing info was given. ) Also... According to various sources, Vader spends about 1 month after Yavin hunting down the pilot that destroyed the Death Star. One month on his own, before even reporting to Palpatine, right? Then it all ends in Vader's Quest, which is apparently concurrent with Marvel # 35. So this makes Marvel issues 7-35 all cram into that first month, and then there's a few afterwards, and "Riders in the Void" ( which is presumably right after the others, although no segue or dates are shown. ) This can probably work, but I won't know for sure until I read them on my "schedule", next April. So...is that all right? Anyway, I picked up Star Wars 3-D issues 1 and 2...guess what? They fit into continuity! In issue 1...Luke ( with Han, Chewie, Threepio etc. ) returns to Tatooine. It implies that it's been "weeks" since he's been there. While the comic suggests it's the events of ANH, this can actually just be mentioning the weeks since he last visited, perhaps during The Early Adventures, Rogue Squadron, or the Marvel issues with Baron Tagge's Omega Frost project and when he hooked up with Camie and Fixer again. ( BTW - They got married, and this was within that 1 month after Yavin. Any good explanations as to why it seemed so long since Luke had been there with them? Did Luke change enough emotionally and the way he carried himself - enough for Camie to see him differently? ) Star Wars 3-D # 2 fits in fine as well. Although I'm not sure about the Yavin 4 evacuation. I don't have Classic Star Wars to compare its events to that issue. Basically, after returning from Tatooine, the Falcon runs into Vader with the fleet surrounding the jungle moon. They escape the TIEs and land, but no one is around. Luke takes them all to the rendevous coordinates in another system, where they meet Leia. The Rebels need a new base. Thankfully, Han knows of a suitable location from his smuggling days - Hoth! Notice how the panel doesn't continue to show Luke's reaction. He's already been there, when he crashed and met Governor Torlock and Frija. Plus, he had to keep Hoth's location secret from Leia and the others. It was the prime location for the new base, and he had to make it appear that Han was the one who came up with the idea on his own ( hence Luke's comments on the next page. ) I don't have 3-D # 3. I know that Dantooine is in it, and that there's a spaceport of some kind there...correct? Any continuity issues here? ( I figure that after ANH, Dantooine was used as a haven for criminals for awhile, ala Mos Eisley, but then it all dried up and was abandoned to how we see it in Galaxy of Fear - Clones and the JAT. This also explains why Prince Xizor could be familiar with the Dantooinan garfish or something, in the BHWs books. Plus, the spaceport could be an isolated settlement, on a far side of the planet. ) Mav, Ghengis, Val? ( The Usual Suspects ) Any comments, ideas, answers?
