    The Story: A thrilling story from Scott filled with great tension and characters. The action is fantastic and I continue to enjoy the world building of this series. The conflict between the factions continues to be interesting and how that conflict is effecting the force makes me intrigued with how the story will progress and what turns it will take next.

    The Art: Anindito delivers beautiful art throughout the issue. The visuals are bright, compelling and visually the emotion of moments perfectly.

    It’s a decent but and a good epilogue of sorts to the opening story while setting the pieces in place for what’s coming next. The book gives us a look at where everyone is after the chaos from the past couple of issues and how they can focus going forward, a coming together to deal with a larger threat. That’s mostly ignored in this issue in favor of the rescue side of things and while that may not give us a lot of action it fits with the mandate and the belief systems for most of those here so it’s welcome to see. The book continues to read decently and the artwork looks good, making for a fun experience overall while waiting for the next round of things to pick up.

    At its core, this issue dives deep into the connection that people of Star Wars have to the Force, and the relationship many in the High Republic Era had to the Jedi. Those are interesting concepts that haven’t been explored enough in Star Wars lore, making this a compelling installment of the High Republic series. There’s a lot going on in the front half, and it takes a little while to drive its point home, but all-in-all The High Republic has delivered another solid issue.

    As the rescuing continues the Jedi and Guardians must fight extra hard to protect the people of Jedha, even as those people are primed to turn on the Jedi that they now no longer trust. Hopefully some selfless heroics will help ease their minds and let the Jedi work.

    This does at least have a point of trivia for the movie Rogue One in that the statue seen laying on the planet’s surface in that movie had fallen down thousands of years in the past.

    I have not really been following this series that closely so while I could follow what was going on at the moment I did not know how it related to the wider story. I did recognise them going back to the bar from a few issues back.

    Maybe this one is more for people who want to keep reading the High Republic story and go off in a different direction with Star Wars. There are also a series of young adult novels but I am not sure how much they are related to this storyline.

    I did have some hope for the High Republic stuff but it has mostly left me cold so far and I have not been able to get into it. Cannot really get invested in it as much as there is no one I really relate to in these stories as Han, Luke, Leia, Chewy and even Yoda are thousands of years from being born.
