    The latest comic gives us the reunion we have all been waiting for, but dreading at the same time. Keeve Trennis comes face to face with Sskeer, her former Jedi Master. Beyond this emotional reunion, we have threads from Phase II of The High Republic comics weaving their way into the story. It felt like the conclusion of one arc and the beginning of something else incredibly special.

    When the High Republic works focus on smaller casts of characters and specific situations it works better for me. So many of the things tend to be more sweeping and “operatic” in approach and it just doesn’t have the grounding it needs for me at this point because there’s just so much of it. I do like this series and it’s been growing on me from the start since it has a clear objective on some level and the characters are pretty well established at this point. It still doesn’t feel like it has a strong enough backdrop to play against but that’s more my issue as I haven’t read enough of the works to really keep up with it all. It’s a solid issue and I really liked the artwork, especially with Terec facing off against the Nameless.

    The stakes have always been high in the High Republic Era of Star Wars, but the emotional stakes haven’t always kept pace. Cavan Scott is working some overtime in that department with this ongoing comic series, keeping you on your toes not only in regards to the story itself, but emotionally as well. This is one of the few instances where it genuinely feels like things could go either way in most situations, keeping you emotionally invested around every turn.
