Jabba’s Palace shows a conspiracy where someone tries to take over from Jabba, Ewoks features 3 stories without dialogue that Ewoks tell each other around the campfire while in Lando, he & Chewie attempt to find full schematics of Jabba’s Palace, so they can plan a break-in to save Han! There will be 5 more comics released across the year, which Mike will delve into later in 2023.
