    Default Is Marvel overdoing it with the sequel trilogy references in the OT-era comics?

    So basically:


    -Half of the Star Wars monthly features Poe Dameron's parents. Baby Poe even makes a cameo in hologram form in the last issue.
    -Darth Vader's current one is all about Exegol, the Sith Wayfinder and Ochii.
    -Not quite as bad, but part of the recent Doctor Aphra comics take place on Canto Bight.


    I'm kind of reminded a bit of Dark Horse and Del Rey when the prequels came out-even the OT stories focused less on Luke and co. and more on having them come across Clone Troopers or in one particular novel (Tatooine Ghost) which is more or less Leia going on a grand tour of Anakin's Tatooine upbringing, the Tusken village massacre, and learning about her grandmother. Or how the New Jedi Order pretty much resolved itself because of a planet Anakin and Obi-Wan did something on, and Luke, twenty years or so into his new Jedi Order, suddenly deciding to form a Jedi Council.

    I guess it's what happens when the Sequel era is basically over but you're kind of in a phase where you have to set it up or reference it somewhat because of the brand and it's fresh in peoples minds.

    I thought Poe wasn't born until after they defeated the Empire? I don't remember him being mentioned in the Force Awakens prequel comic that featured his parents.

    The current SW monthly is set shortly after EMPIRE. Poe was born around 2 years after Yavin, roughly a year or so before. However, Shara left him with her father while she and her husband did Rebel stuff.

    They do settle down eventually on Yavin IV, but then Shara dies, perhaps contributing in part to Poe's "spice runner" years.

    It's probably what the story group wants. They still have control over the comics.
