    This is the other big aspect of this for me, these two individually have excellent track records, but putting them together? Genius.

Im not expecting knull suddenly appearing and giving every one klyntars

    Great news all around. As young Darth Vader would say, "Yipee!"

    Great, then we both know the dance steps!

    By the by, buying Marvel's stuff in OHC / Omnibus form takes all stress out of it - granted, you have to wait for the damn things but does tend to be worthwhile.

    Fair enough I like following it weekly / monthly but that does solve most things

    Do we know if the comic is going to be a mini series or ongoing? The former would allow this to serve as an introduction to the trilogy, but the latter will allow them to run parallel. Both would have benefits. I'd like to see Jody Houser work on an ongoing because her character work is fantastic. Not that I'd be any less excited for a mini series.

    So...I wonder since it's a trilogy what the time table is like, personally I hope one of the books takes place post Jakku.

    ...Why would he lie? He already said he was working on two comics when he was let go: Vader: Dark Visions, and, as we've now learned, this. He's just pointing out what the second comic was as he'd already mentioned it. And considering Aftermath followed a group of Imperial hunters post-ROTJ, and that seems to be the concept of Alphabet Squadron, I could easily see him having been recruited for the comic.

    I was already going to get this, but the inclusion of Hera? That's something I've been wanting in the books ever since Rebels ended. This turn of events could prove to be most...salubrious for me.

    Now that Rebels has ended and everyone's fates have been decided (at least in terms of the Ghost crew), writers now can do what they want with the characters. I'm glad too. Their fates during the OT and afterwards was actually in truth doing my head in. Would love to see Jai Kell, Zare Leonis and Mart Mattin show up at some point too. The options are there for their return.

    I'd love to read a book (or three) about some of the adventures they got up to during the war.

    I wasn't expecting a group of dangerous TIE fighter pilots. Thought it would be the Ruling Council or even a new Grand Admiral. Wonder what these guys were up to? Something with the Death Stars? Protecting high-ranking officers or secret factories? Explorers of the Unknown Region who then reported back to the Emperor, thus giving leeway to the creation of the First Order? I need it now!

    Great news about this being a trilogy and also a new tie-in comic series from the Imperial POV!

    The cover is not really my style, but everything else sounds great.

    If I may inquire @MrDarth0 what is it about the cover that is "not your style" ? I'm always keen to gather feedback on our cover designs positive/negative and would appreciate additional insights from you.
