The Temple of the Whills has been attacked, Vildar Mac critically injured in the blast.
Is Tey Sirrek to blame?
The Herald of the Open Hand has arrived to address the Convocation, but just what is the nameless horror that lurks in the streets of the Holy City?
The Battle of Jedha begins here!
SWNN - Star Wars News NetThis issue of The High Republic was spectacular and ambitious. Woven in the pages are not only interconnected stories across a variety of works of the High Republic initiative, but also several brand-new characters. Working in the personalities and ideals of each various group belonging to the Convocation of the Force is no easy task. There is a brief part in this comic for each of them along with opportunities for the reader to learn more and begin to care a bit deeper about each of them. Cavan Scott is doing amazing things with this arc of The High Republic, and I can’t wait to see where he continues to take this story.
The Fandom PostThere’s a lot going on here that’s moving too fast to be told as well as it should. Plouth and what he’s doing here is clearly a gish gallop kind of plan being put into motion so it mostly works for him, but if you go into what he presents as an honest debate it’s going to just be a disaster. The Convocation doesn’t do itself any favors here in how it’s dealing with so many things and it just points to institutional decay and failure, which is all well and fine to contend with. Pluth and the Open Path have their own approach, however, but we don’t know their actual goals just yet. It’s a decent book in what it’s trying to present and I get it but it just feels too forced at times. Broccardo’s artwork is always great and they’ve got a strong handle on this world and material that it just feels like it’s effortless. I’m excited to see more of their time in this place and property.
Comic WatchNow that The Convocation is in full chaotic swing, its impossible to know what will happen next. A large assembly of Force users gathered in one place might be too tempting to pass up if one were to desire a galaxy with less Forces users in it.
ComicBook.comThis chapter specifically highlights the all-too-common political tactics we see exploited in the modern world and how those can be far more dangerous than brute force, leaving us much more excited for what's around the corner in this series than we were at the end of the last issue.
