"When I pitched the idea of focusing on Maul for issue one, I knew I wanted to set the story on Lotho Minor, the location of one of my favorite Clone Wars stories, "Brothers." Crazy, cackling spider-Maul is just so disturbing and the horror fan in me felt we never saw enough of him. This was my chance to redress that balance! He is so much fun to write."
―Cavan Scott[src]

  2. Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 ends with Darth Vader imprisoning Vaneé, and as shown in Star Wars Adventures: Shadow of Vader's Castle, he doesn't get released until after the end of the Galactic Civil War. As he appears in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 0 BBY, Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle must take place some time after 0 BBY. As Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle features Darth Vader, who dies in 4 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, then this series must take place some time between 0 BBY and 4 ABY.
  3. Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 1 takes place some time between Maul's defeat in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and his rescue during "Brothers". Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to 32 BBY, "Massacre" to 20 BBY, and "Revenge" to 20 BBY. StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link) places "Brothers" between "Massacre" and "Revenge," meaning that "Brothers" also takes place in 20 BBY, and Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 1 takes place between 32 BBY and 20 BBY.
