Just Pre-ordered it on amazon
I put in my preorder on tfaw.com. I also managed to preorder the reissue of the Conan Handbook. Just to share a little of my reading preferences for comics...
One more month

Two weeks from today....
A stranger appears wielding a lightsword
I'm speaking from the perspective of the Je'Daii trying to comprehend the strange object Xesh/Tau is holding. The Je'daii had to backwards engineer the forcesabre in Prisoner of Bogan #2!
Can't see tha image.
I just posted the cover of Dawn of the Jedi, Prisoner of Bogan #2.
The cover text reads, "Can the Je'Daii unlock the secrets of the forcesaber?"
I wish someone could ask Ostrander if there were plans to continue Dawn of the Jedi before the Legends/Canon announcement.
Ostrander was active on the Dark Horse boards before the license shift. Those boards were closed around October 2014. I read his posts on that board, and yes, Dawn of the Jedi would have continued. The license shift was announced publicly on about January 2, 2014. The last Dawn of the Jedi comic, Force War #5, was released on March 19, 2014. The first issue in the Force War arc was released on November 20, 2013. Prisoner of Bogan #5 had a release date of May 22, 2013, so you can see there was a break from May 2013 to November 2013 for the third and final arc to start.
According to Ostrander, his creative team with artist Duursema and others had to conclude the Dawn of the Jedi comics faster than they would have if the license wasn't going to shift. Also, this was before the end of the EU was announced in about May 2014. So, the creative team had to burn through the Rakata invasion of the Tython system quickly compared to what they originally planned. There were other clues dropped of future developments which didn't make it into the series.
