Welcome back, EveryWookiee! We’re continuing to track first appearances and key issues from the Star Wars High Republic comic book publishing initiative and today we’re taking a look at Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #3, by Daniel Jose Older and Harvey Talibao!
You can still grab copies on TFAW if you still haven’t secured your new High Republic issues!
We start this issue with Zeen and Krix split apart, Zeen is at the Jedi Temple on Starlight Beacon, and Krix is in Marchion Ro’s ship, the Gaze Electric. This looks like the first time we’ve seen the Gaze Electric. Soule’s Light of the Jedi uses the ship as a setting and describes certain aspects of it, but here we see the nose of the ship in the top right corner and some interior shots of the bridge.
Meanwhile, Zeen is meeting all sorts of new friends on Starlight Beacon. First up, we have an unnamed cameo of Lily Tora-Asi who will be the protagonist of the upcoming Manga, Edge of Balance coming in September (preceded by the Free Comic Book Day issue in August).
Next, we meet Lula’s Jedi Master, Kantam Sy:
We of course, meet the Bogaranth, which was teased last week!
Then finally, we get a look at what appears to be a Rorschach-esque effect on Marchion Ro’s mask. It looks like the swirling “storm” on the front changes with his mood or demeanor. I could be wrong on that.
