But it may not be that surprising, and it's likely not the actual end. Here are the details for Star Wars #75, the final issue due out this November.

The epic REBELS AND ROGUES storyline reaches its explosive end!

Is WARBA the master or the student?

The next shot is Kyo Ren, unmasked, inside a white room looking down... on Darth Vader's charred helmet, which is inside a case that slowly opens as white, dry-ice-like vapor rushes out.

It appears as though Lucasfilm are taking a cue from Marvel Studios here in rebranding the franchise into distinct phases, but the release of an official timeline also goes a long way to clearing up some of the confusion surrounding exactly when some of the events in the Star Wars mythology take place.

The search for a new rebel base continues!

Marvel's original Star Wars comic debuted before the first film in 1977 and ran for 107 issues. For now, let's just appreciate the series for what it is.

For those who aren't comic book regulars, this is something that Marvel and other comic publishers have frequently done to drum up new interest in a series.

In recent years, the chronology of Star Wars has become increasingly convoluted thanks to both the prequel and sequel trilogies, Anthology movies and the upcoming slate of Disney Plus shows.

During the Disney Legends ceremony at D23 Expo 2019, a sizzle reel of upcoming Disney projects showed off some new footage from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

So far, the Star Wars comics from Marvel, which began in 2015 before the release of The Force Awakens, have focused on the gap of time between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, revealing what Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia Organa have been up to with the Rebel Alliance since destroying the first Death Star. Having to wait for the context of The Rise of Skywalker would seem like a legitimate reason to momentarily pause what is otherwise a very popular comic!

Are you sad to see this Star Wars comic come to an end? Always in motion it is, after all.
