    The High Republic is back in full swing, and I am loving it. I wish we got a new issue every week, but alas, we must wait until next month for another glorious addition to Shadows of Starlight.

    The Story: Soule crafts an entertaining and thrilling story filled with great emotional moments for the characters. The Avar Kriss storyline is compelling and perfectly captures the tenacity and determination of the character. I really enjoy the stakes in this series and not only how it creates great suspense, but great moments of inspiration as well.

    The Art: Cresta delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. The character designs are fantastic and I really joyed the thrilling details and composition of the action.

    Avar Kriss is one of the most realized characters of this entire High Republic initiative, so spending a lot of time with her in this issue is very exciting. This also pulls back the curtain on life in the Nihil-controlled region of the galaxy, giving readers a glimpse into something a bit different. A lot of ground is covered here and almost every inch of it is interesting.

    The Fandom Post

    The shift in focus with this installment to Avar and Elzar works well. Avar is still the standout character for me across the High Republic era stories as she’s had the most material I’ve seen and there’s a lot of good story stuff for her to engage in. Her path here is one that certainly feels right in this more kind of freewheeling period of the Republic and going through some of the issues that exist between her and Elzar works well after coming to grips with the fact that Stellan is dead. The Nihil are handled well enough here and you can see how it would cause more ripples across the outer rim in the decades to come to keep it less connected to the Republic – making it ripe for the Empire.
