On this page, you’ll soon find a timeline of all-things new-canon! This timeline is based on the wonderful timeline created by the guys over at Jedi-Bibliothek! They graciously allowed me to use theirs to create my own version!

Page numbers reflect the pages in the original first editions (thus hardcover editions over paperback reprints, single issue comics over collections)
