The Crushing Comics Guide to Star Wars – your guide to watching, reading, and collecting Star Wars Expanded Universe canon films, TV shows, novels, and comic books. Last updated April 2017 with titles scheduled for release through December 2016.
There is no exact placement of the beginning of this period, but for the purposes of this guide it begins between 7 and 5 BBY, concurrent to the beginning of the Star Wars: Rebels TV show. For ease of organization, it also includes some Rebels prologue material that could be placed in the prior section. This period continues through Rogue One, whose prologue is in 13 BBY and which ends in 0 BBY just prior to the opening frames of A New Hope.
Note that some short stories, comic strips, young readers adaptations and activity books, and web browser games have been omitted from this order.
