Star Wars Rebels/Clarification/Kanan

I decided to sit down and finally read the Kanan series. Very good story.
The comic world has been arguing back & forth over the spec of the Rebels crew with #1 being their first cameo (never named & one panel) & #6 being the 1st full/cover/named. It’s been even more argued due to the likelihood of Sabine Wren being in the Mandalorian.

I don’t know that it matters, but I noticed issue #5 also has a full crew cameo panel of them as well. I’ve yet to see that mentioned and I think it has been just skipped over.
I don’t know if that makes a lick of difference to anyone, but it does make #6 the 3rd appearance versus the 2nd.
Makes #5 a better book too as I’ve noticed most folks cherry pick 1 & 6.
Issue # 1 cameo followed by issue #5 cameo pics.


Issue 1 is full app

Looks like a 1st full to me. Don’t get this ‘cameo’ stuff when characters appear in multiple panels, speak and are even mentioned by name. His name is even in the title! lol

My post was relative to the other crew & mainly Sabine Wren, Ezra, & Hera as they all are rumored to be seen sooner, rather than later on screen. No doubt on Kanan as the entire book/series is a flash back origin.

While I agree #1 should be a 1st for all of them…there are just as many (check eBay for issue #6) that feel these panels are just cameos & insignificant.

Again, much of the argument has been #1 as the cameo but as pictured above, issue #5 also has them all so it’s a bit of a stretch to say #6 issue after we’ve seen them prior (one panel or not).

Certainly the fact that #6 has a far lower print run than #1 is impacting those with copies stance.

#1 is first App in cameo of the crew (other then Kaanan who is full in one).

#5 is second app in cameo of the crew.

#6 is first full app of the crew and first cover.

1/5 are one panel so that’s typically a cameo by most definitions.

Which is the better book 1 or 6? Buy both and don’t worry about it.

Others argue the Rebels magazine is first app and first full as it predates all and has comics in it I believe.

This was my logic…nabbed a graded copy of each. Now I can sit on the sidelines and watch the debate… :grin:

How about that…my copies of issue 6 just shipped from CBCS…not peeking at the grade though…
