    Based on the little bit we've learned courtesy of the announcement, the comic's storyline is most likely about what happened to him after he woke up to find Luke standing over him with a lightsaber and how he came to be associated with the Knights of Ren and take the moniker of Kylo Ren, which means that, as noted, it is likely going to be set in the period of time between Bloodline and The Force Awakens.

    It's possible that we could see scenes set in the time prior to his turn, but it doesn't seem likely that that is what the bulk of the storyline is going to be about.

    I agree that that is the most likely time period but they could go in different directions with it. However, a short run comic of how the KOR were formed and an eventual Ben Solo novel that includes how Snoke influences him and how he turns dark makes the most sense

    But the cover art shows Kylo with his NEW helmet. So, isn't it more likely that this comic is set after TLJ? There could be flashbacks though...

    I agree. It's a short series. I think this is about Kylo securing power as Supreme Leader, not how he became Kylo Ren.

    I think that is just marketing. Soule has described it as being from Ben to Ren.

    I am ridiculously pumped for this, tbh. They haven't announced a release date other than "December 2019", right?

    I'm really not a comic reader, but I've already pre-ordered the Age of Resistance comics (as a collection) for later this year. I hope I can pre-order this series, too, or one by one or whatever.

    I will have this series or else.

    It's a 4 issue mini series releasing every week. So, I imagine the week of Dec 1st through the week of the 20th.

    Thank you! I have no point of reference, so this is helpful.
