Despite not having a big panel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at this year's San Diego Comic Con, that hasn't stopped a ton of Star Wars news from pouring out of the convention. Yesterday we were treated to the Star Wars publishing panel and the Hasbro panel, both of which featured a number of intriguing announcements.

The publishing panel specifically gave us our first look at a variety of new books and comics based in all areas of the saga, including the reveal of a comic adaptation of the novel "Thrawn".
