Vildar and Matty at the mercy of the Guardians Of The Whills!
The truth about Tey Sirrek revealed.
Terror is about to strike at the Temple of Kyber!
GWWNo matter how closely you follow Star Wars comics, I would definitely recommend keeping up with these comics. I have been betting for a while that this era will be the next big focus of Star Wars. It is only a matter of time before it gets onto the screen. These are all new faces, and things that you think of as common are only prototypes at this point in the timeline. There is a lot of familarizing to do with this era, and I think The High Republic comics are a great entry point. #3 was another great entry, and I am excited to read #4 and beyond.
The Fandom PostWhile I don’t see Tey becoming a favorite character of mine, they’ve at least given him a bit of weight here so that he doesn’t come across as a trickster thief with a heart of gold that we were getting the sense of in the previous issue. The book does a decent job here of showing more of how the Guardians of the Whills are a problematic organization, at least from Tey’s point of view, and it certainly lines up with how problematic the Jedi here are on Jedha as well. It’s a complicated setting and I hope it’s something that Cavan Scott gets to explore more and that it’s not just a big action/adventure book as the chance to do some defining work is possible with how little has truly been done in this era, and how it can impact things in the future.
SWNN - Star Wars News NetThe first two issues of The High Republic have been centered heavily around Vildar and his mental makeup as a Jedi, and how his complicated past influences his decisions today. This third issue takes a different approach and sees us dive into the mystery character thus far: Tey Sirrek.
ComicBook.comIf the events of the first two issues of this series don't resonate strongly enough with a reader, it's easy to be overwhelmed, with the jargon of The High Republic also not making things any easier to comprehend. We only hope that this issue helps get some exposition out of the way to make for a more cohesive journey going forward.
