Publisher's summary[]

NEW ONGOING SERIES – HAN SOLO IS BACK! But wait! Isn't HAN still frozen in Carbonite? Yes. But you can't keep a good smuggler down. Set a few years before Episode IV: A New Hope, Han, his partner, CHEWBACCA and GREEDO, embark on a heist for JABBA THE HUTT. It's supposed to be an easy job. What could possibly go wrong?

It is a golden age of criminal enterprise. With the evil Galactic
Empire preoccupied with brining the galaxy under its thumb,
scoundrels and thieves are free to ply their criminal trades with
abandon.

For the past several years, HAN SOLO and CHEWBACCA THE
WOOKIEE have been scamming, smuggling and thieving for the
vile gangster JABBA THE HUTT.

Business has been good, but Han and Chewbacca are always
looking ahead to the next job and the payday that will score them
more wealth than they can imagine….

  2. Han Solo & Chewbacca 1
  3. StarWars.com Marvel's Han Solo & Chewbacca Series Coming March 2022 – Exclusive on StarWars.com (backup link) places the events of Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca after the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story but years before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide places Solo: A Star Wars Story nine years after Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the events of which take place in 19 BBY according to the Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, meaning that Solo: A Star Wars Story takes place in 10 BBY. As Han Solo & Chewbacca 1 states that Han Solo and Chewbacca have been working for Jabba Desilijic Tiure for several years prior to the events of the issue, and given that Solo and Chewbacca had not yet begun working for Jabba during the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the earliest Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca can take place is 8 BBY. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas also places Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in 0 BBY, and since Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca takes place years earlier, the latest it can take place is 2 BBY.
