    One year after losing her love in the fall of Starlight Beacon, Zeen Mrala is sent on a mission to defuse a tense situation, as she still grieves Lula Talisola. Little does she know that this latest mission could change everything she knows about the loss and set her on a new path. For anyone who hasn’t been reading previous adventures for The High Republic, this debut issue in Phase III of Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures will likely be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of dizzying exposition to try to get readers up to speed. Virtually every four pages, we’re given a new dump of information about characters or locations to try to set the stage for this storyline, with many of the illustrations also being as convoluted and complicated. Had either the storyline or the illustrations been a bit more restrained or efficient in their storytelling, the overall experience would be highly improved, as we’re given such a barrage of information that it’s hard to keep any of it straight. That’s not to say that there isn’t potential in the overall premise of this series, as each panel or page, taken on their own, are engaging enough, but this debut installment of a book aimed at young readers is so dense that it’s hard to imagine anyone outside the devout The High Republic fan getting much enjoyment out of reading it. Hopefully with the premise established, the upcoming installments can show more than they tell, but if this premiere issue is a sign of things to come, we’re in for a bumpy ride.
