Disney Plus' The Mandalorian has shown that Star Wars can be more than just a movie franchise, but comic book fans have known its versatility for decades thanks to the massive armada of Star Wars comics in the late '70s from Marvel Comics and Dark Horse Comics.

Marvel Comics is currently the primary home for Star Wars comics to hardcore fans, as they're confirmed in-continuity with the movies and TV shows. The House of Ideas currently has five ongoing Star Wars titles - Star Wars, Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra, Bounty Hunters, and The High Republic.

Meanwhile, IDW has been serving an all-ages counterpoint to those with several tremendous Star Wars ongoings and limited series - but that appears to be coming to a close coinciding with news that Dark Horse Comics has partnered with Disney/Lucasfilm in 2021 for similar Star Wars comics in 2022 and beyond.

One thing conspicuously absent from the comic book lines to date has been any tie-in to Disney Plus's The Mandalorian. Disney announced plans to eventually create Mandalorian comics back in June 2020, but to date, Mandalorian comics have been MIA.

And that's not to mention the numerous new Star Wars collections coming out at almost a weekly clip from Marvel, IDW, and others, putting recent arcs all in one place and, in some cases, bringing back in print storylines that haven't been available for years.

Here's a week-by-week rundown of new Star Wars comics:
