Its Star Wars and Yoda is flying a ship, need I say more?

PLOT AND STORY 

Zeen has followed the Jedi to the Starlight Beacon, where she learns what it means to be a Padawan and begins her own training. Meanwhile, her best friend Krix tries to survive on a Nihil ship, fighting their way through a Republic blockade, as he wonders who the mysterious person who rescued him truly is.

Every issue seems to get better and better with this series. Daniel Jose Older is slowly teasing us with snippets of The Nihal who I feel are quickly becoming a very formidable adversary in The High Republic era. I liked the twists in this issue setting things up very nicely for next month’s issue which can’t come soon enough. 

ARTWORK

This series has a very unique style which has grasped the essence of what makes a Star Wars story. Harvey Tolibao and Rebecca Nalty have crafted a book which is full of colour and diversity with weird and wonderful creatures. 

In this issue I very much enjoyed the space battle pages. Seeing Jedi en mass flying their vectors into battle is quite the spectacle and made for some adrenaline pumping moments. 

FINAL THOUGHTS

I continue to enjoy this series which has been slowly building to what I feel will be a very climatic finale. This book is packed full of Jedi and force users displaying all kinds of powers but underneath it all is a deep and meaningful story about friendship and trust.

I read this via an advance preview copy issued by IDW and received no incentive to review this comic. All images and artwork are courtesy of IDW and their respective owners.
