Publisher's summary

THE ASHES OF JEDHA!

Once the site of great significance to the Jedi, Jedha was left in ruins when the Death Star annihilated the Holy City there. Now, new series writer Kieron Gillen joins artist Salvador Larroca to bring Luke, Leia, Han, and the rest to the remains of the tragic victim of the Empire's fury![5]

Plot summary

Part II
THE ASHES OF JEDHA
It is period of high tension in the galaxy. The
Galactic Empire has returned to Jedha in an
attempt to collect the remaining weapon-powering
kyber crystals that survived the Death Star's
attack.

Meanwhile, Rebel leaders Princess Leia and Luke
Skywalker, joined by smuggler Han Solo, are
leading the mission to find a new base for their
operation. Upon arriving on Jedha, the rebels
quickly join forces with natives of the nearly
destroyed planet, Chulco Gi and ex-rebel Ubin.

However, when Ubin and Chulco lead the heroes of
the Rebellion to meet with surviving members of
Saw Gerrera's partisans, their welcome is less
than friendly....[2]

  3. In Star Wars 43 Trios says that "the Imperials are weaker than they have been for twenty years," meaning it must take place at least twenty years after the formation of the Galactic Empire, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. This means Star Wars 43 takes place no earlier than 1 ABY. The issue is also set before the Assault on the Mako-Ta Space Docks, which took place in 1 ABY, it must have occurred in 1 ABY. This issue is part of the same story arc and takes place immediately before Star Wars 43. Therefore, it also takes place in 1 ABY.
