    Jody Houser is putting together an interesting story in which we see Krrshish struggle with his fear and anxiety surrounding his visions and his concerns about his Trandoshan friend. The dialogue between the Wookie and Yoda is well-handled and consistent with the way that Yoda speaks. The issue ends with the Jadi Padawans being taken to a jungle planet where they are about to be tested. The point of the trip is to have the Padawans connect to the life that is surrounding them so they can feel the Force. However, the trip may have some dire consequences for Krrshish as he continues to struggle with his anxiety.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.

    Jody Houser steals much mystery by revealing the truth behind the dark vision Krrsish fears. Still, I like how her story suggests that anxiety transformed heroes into villains that transformed the Republic into an Empire. Rich, vibrant art conveys the battle for Krrsish’s soul in Star Wars Yoda #5. Like some Jedi who came before him, let’s hope the Wookie’s story doesn’t end in tragedy.

    Overall, Star Wars: Yoda #5 is an issue which shows how darkness resides in all of us. The story by Houser is exhilarating. The art by the creative team is dazzling. Altogether, a story that being slow to hate, is harder than anyone can imagine.

    Yoda’s not a big player in this storyline, allowing Krrsish to stand at the forefront, so it’s similar to the first arc in this series in that way. Which is a mixed bag because I wanty more Yoda but I know we’ll never really get much about him per se. His interactions with the students is decent but we’re in a situation where Krrsish is hiding so much of what’s going on and even though it’s causing problems it’s not getting the attention it should. I’m curious to see how it’ll unfold as part of me doesn’t want to have all the stories end on a positive but you also want to see what the Jedi espouse as beliefs show some resilience and being worth doing.

    The Story: An entertaining story with some engaging character development. The plot is interesting and continues to add layers to Yoda and his experiences. I like that the story is focusing on an issue of trust and how it is unfolding. The message is subtle and that makes it work as an allegory for bigger issues.

    The Art: Ross delivers some great art. The visuals focus on the characters a lot and allows them to express themselves through the imagery.

    On the surface, this chapter continues to explore the mysterious nature of the Force and young Jedi who are struggling to come to terms with the past and its impact on the future. On a deeper level, though, the book further showcases the subtle ways a nefarious figure like Count Dooku can manipulate the unshaped minds of burgeoning Jedi to encourage them to embrace their more sinister side without ever realizing that these are the first steps towards the Dark Side. This arc of the Star Wars: Yoda continues to blend sophisticated concepts with more volatile narrative teases, highlighting how the sway of the Dark Side isn’t isolated to various figures in the Skywalker Saga but has been a constant struggle. For as long as there have been Jedi, there have been those looking to exploit the peacekeepers, leaving us even more excited to see how this narrative culminates, regardless of the long-lasting ramifications it might have on the galaxy far, far away.

    The interesting nature of this topic makes it an entertaining read as Yoda appears to be failing Krrsish the same way he failed Anakin in Revenge of the Sith. This arc is definitely a step in the right direction for Yoda, and I look forward to seeing how it concludes.
