Publisher's summary[]

It should have been just another bounty like many before it. No questions asked. No complications. But when the Mandalorian finds out his prey is a child of a mysterious race, a foundling just like he once was, his life changes forever. Wanted by other bounty hunters and by what remains of the Galactic Empire, the infant forces the lone warrior to travel from planet to planet until running is no longer an option.[5]


The comic was announced on June 30, 2020, on StarWars.com, alongside several other titles in The Mandalorian publishing program, including a series by Marvel Comics. It was announced to be published by IDW Publishing.[4]

In August 2020, the comic was solicited for release in November 2020 as Star Wars Adventures: The Mandalorian, and a preliminary cover was revealed.[6] Several days later, artist Peach Momoko confirmed that she would be illustrating the final cover for the comic, but that she had not drawn the preliminary cover.[1]

The comic ultimately was not released in November 2020.[6] On March 9, 2021, several other titles in The Mandalorian publishing program were canceled, including The Mandalorian: An Original Novel, though the comic one-shot was not officially canceled.[7] Eventually the comic was picked up by Panini Comics UK, and published on May 18, 2022 under the new title of Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season One Graphic Novel.[2]

  3. StarWars.com SWCC 2019: 9 Things We Learned from The Mandalorian Panel on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that The Mandalorian is set around five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Furthermore, SWInsider.png "A Certain Point of View" – Star Wars Insider 202 dates the skirmish on Nevarro and the second rescue of Grogu—which are depicted in the The Mandalorian episodes "Chapter 7: The Reckoning" and "Chapter 16: The Rescue," respectively—to "9 ASW4," or nine years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 9 ABY according to Galactic Atlas. Therefore, the events of "Chapter 1: The Mandalorian" through "Chapter 6: The Prisoner" must have taken place around 9 ABY, while the events of "Chapter 7: The Reckoning" through "Chapter 16: The Rescue" took place in 9 ABY.
