Plot summaryEdit

BURNING SEAS
Part I
Three [sic] years have passed since the ascension of
Emperor Palpatine, the formation of the Great Galactic
Empire, and the descent of former Jedi Knight Anakin
Skywalker into his new form as twisted half-man,
half-machine  Darth Vader — Sith apprentice to
Palpatine.

Vader and his squad of evil Force-wielding hunters,
the Inquisitors, have had great success seeking out
the few survivors of the purge that destroyed the noble
Jedi Order just prior to Palpatine's rise. Few Jedi
remain in the galaxy.

But now, a threat has arisen to the Emperor's
still-new, still-vulnerable again, and Vader must
confront both his past and present....

ContinuityEdit

The issue's opening crawl and page 7 incorrectly state that three years have passed since the proclamation of the New Order, when less than a year has passed. Lucasfilm Story Group member Matt Martin clarified the issue's placement on Twitter.[2] Wilhuff Tarkin is referred to as Grand Moff, despite Tarkin establishing that the rank was created in 14 BBY.[3] The continuity errors were later fixed in the digital versions of the comic and slated to be fixed in the trade paperback.

In one panel, Commander Jordo, an Imperial Security Bureau officer in white uniform, is depicted with a standard Imperial military uniform, despite being in the same sequence of events where he was depicted in the standard white ISB uniform. In another panel, Tarkin also appears to refer to Colonel Bergon as Commander Jordo.
