The 4th and final issue of Star Wars: The High Republic – The Blade by Charles Soule is due out in late March. While we are only 2 issues in and the action is just about to ramp up in the Porter Engle focused mini-series it’s already struck a chord with Star Wars fans as issue #2, the introduction of the big bad of the story General Viess, is getting a 2nd printing variant.
If you haven’t been reading because you prefer to wait for the trade paperback version you’re in luck! On June 27, 2023 Marvel is publishing a TPB that collects all four issues in the United States. I’m sure Panini is doing an international edition as well but I have not heard anything about that at the moment.
Here’s the official publisher’s description:
Star Wars: The High Republic – The Blade Trade Paperback (TPB)
(A) Soule (IA) Castiella (C) Camuncoli
Hundreds of years before the Skywalker saga, witness the birth of a Jedi legend! Porter Engle is perhaps the most skilled lightsaber wielder in the High Republic. With his sister and fellow Jedi Knight Barash Silvain, he travels the galaxy, serving as a guardian of peace and justice. As the two Jedi journey to a planet far on the Republic frontier in response to a desperate request for aid, they are certain they will succeed.
Because no one in the galaxy fights like Porter Engle. No warrior can stand against him. No one even comes close. They are sure of victory…until they see what awaits them!
Collecting STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC – THE BLADE #1-4.
In Stores: June, 27, 203
At the moment the only place I see it listed for pre-order is on Amazon but I’m sure that will change soon. You can check here to see if it’s been listed on TFAW.
Plenty more updates on the way. Just have to find the time to post them. 🙂
For light and life!
