  2. 2.0 2.1 StarWars.com A Tale from Obi-Wan's Youngling Days and More from Marvel's May 2022 Star Wars Comics – Exclusive Preview on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that Obi-Wan 1 takes place during Obi-Wan Kenobi's final days on Tatooine, and since him leaving Tatooine and his death in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope are dated to 0 BBY in Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, Obi-Wan 1 must take place around the same year. Furthermore, the flashbacks take place when Kenobi is eight years old, and since ToppsDigitalLogo.png Star Wars: Card Trader (Card: Obi-Wan Kenobi - Padawan - Base Series 1) establishes that he was born 57 years before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 57 BBY, he was eight years old in 49 BBY.
