Star Wars The High Republic Phase Two Reading Order & Comic Checklist

Hola, hello, and “ruh ruh” everywookiee! The 2nd (of 3) phase of The High Republic publishing initiative kicks off in October 2022 and if it’s anything like Phase I we are in for a TON of new Star Wars content. Phase 1 of The High Republic gave us over 10 books, dozens of comics, and HUNDREDS of comic variant covers.

I anticipate Phase II will bring us much of the same and there where be a ton to go through. This post is intended to catalog every book, comic, and variant that comes out over the next year or so to help you stay up to date and lay out all of your variant choices to choose from.

Once the content begins to roll out I will also provide a proper reading order for the High Republic and list out every first appearance under each book or comic.

This post will evolve over time as we get more info and releases. So be sure to bookmark it and follow the drunkwooky instagram page to stay up on the latest news.

Note: Star Wars The High Republic Phase II is set 150 years before the events that took place in The High Republic Phase I. This also means that it’s ~350 years before we discover Anakin Skywalker in Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

Let’s dive in…

Star Wars: Path of Deceit (The High Republic)

(A) Tessa Gratton, Justina Ireland

Young Adult (YA) Novel

Set in the world of the High Republic, 150 years before the storytelling of Phase I, an era of change brings new hopes and possibilities . . . but also new dangers.

The Outer Rim planet Dalna has become the focus of a Jedi investigation into a stolen Force artifact, and Zallah Macri and her Padawan, Kevmo Zink, arrive on the pastoral world to follow up on a possible connection to a Dalnan missionary group called the Path of the Open Hand. Members of the Path believe that the Force must be free and should not be used by anyone, not even the Jedi. One such believer is Marda Ro, a young woman who dreams of leaving Dalna to spread word of the Path throughout the galaxy.

When Marda and Kevmo meet, their connection is instantaneous and electric―until Marda discovers Kevmo is a Jedi. But Kevmo is so kind and eager to learn more about the Path, that she hopes she can convince him of the rightness of her beliefs. What Marda doesn’t realize is that the leader of the Path, a charismatic woman known only as the Mother, has an agenda of her own, and it is one that can never coexist peacefully with the Jedi.

In order to follow her faith, Marda may have to choose to become her new friend’s worst enemy. . . .

Star Wars: Convergence (The High Republic)

(A) Zoraida Cordova

Adult Novel

The next adventure in the High Republic begins expanding the new era of Star Wars, with a story set generations before Light of the Jedi.

It is an age of exploration. Jedi travel the galaxy, expanding their understanding of the Force and all the worlds and beings connected by it. Meanwhile, the Republic, led by its two chancellors, works to unite worlds in an ever-growing community among near and distant stars.

On the close orbiting planets of Eiram and E’ronoh, the growing pains of a galaxy with limited resources but unlimited ambition are felt keenly. Their hatred for each other has fueled half a decade of escalating conflict and now threatens to consume surrounding systems. The last hope for peace emerges when heirs from the two planets’ royal families plan to marry.

Before lasting peace can be established, an assassination attempt targeting the couple tilts Eiram and E’ronoh back into all-out war. To save both worlds, Jedi Knight Gella Nattai volunteers to uncover the culprit, while Chancellor Kyong appoints her son, Axel Greylark, to represent the Republic’s interests in the investigation.

But Axel’s deep distrust of the Jedi sparks against Gella’s faith in the Force. She’s never met such a puffed-up, privileged party boy, and he’s never met a more self-serious, relentless do-gooder. The more they work to untangle the shadowy web of the investigation, the more complicated the conspiracy appears to be. With accusations flying and potential enemies in every shadow, the pair will have to work together to have any hope of bringing the truth to light and saving both worlds.
