Welcome back to another new comic book day, EveryWookiee!! Every week I take a look at the Star Wars comic releases and analyze for first appearances and key events that may be worth collecting or keeping an eye on for future development.
First appearances and keys from these weekly articles get added to or sister site and Star Wars comics first appearance and key issue database, Wookywiki.com!
This week is a light week with one Star Wars book, High Republic Trail of Shadows #4. Not many first appearances, but there is a key event.
We get the first appearance of a Chadra Fan female named Beesar. She’s a Republic operative surveilling Dr. Uttersond’s attempts to steal the Nihil’s anti-Jedi weapon.
Zagyar shows, up. This isn’t his first appearance.
Zagyar was first pictured in High Republic Adventures #2:
Emerick has a terrifying vision of Ruusstha Vidryarvrikt, who first appeared as the nursemaid from Emerick and Stellan’s Jedi Youngling past in Trail of Shadows #1. This vision was unleashed on Emerick by opening the peephole on the crate holding a “Leveler” first seen in comics in High Republic #10.
Finally, for the first time in comics, we see the fiery conclusion of Phase 1 of the High Republic publishing initiative, the destruction of Starlight Beacon. The full tale of this catastrophe is told in the awesome novel, Fallen Star by Claudia Gray!
