Comic Book Reading Order: Star Wars Dark Droids (2023)

Contents

Star Wars: Dark Droids takes the galaxy far, far away to a scary place.

Here’s the complete reading order.

Marvel has established their love of events, going back to things like Atlantis Attacks and Evolutionary Wars; that’s not any different with their Star Wars books. They’ve done War of the Bounty Hunters and Crimson Reign already; Dark Droids is a little different. Marvel takes Star Wars into the horror genre with this event.

Launching in August with STAR WARS: DARK DROIDS #1, the event will also spin off into new series and tie into the four ongoing series that are currently bridging the gap between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi films: STAR WARS, STAR WARS: DARTH VADER, STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA, and STAR WARS: BOUNTY HUNTERS. DARK DROIDS will be a rare horror-fueled Star Wars epic set that erupts when a new threat is unleashed throughout the galaxy, corrupting droids, cyborgs, and everything in-between! 

Who or what is the Scourge — and why is no droid safe? As a corruption spreads from one droid to the next, the Rebel Alliance and the Empire both face chaos! What role does Ajax Sigma from last year’s STAR WARS: REVELATIONS one-shot play in all of this? And whose side is he on?
