Quick update! In early March I mentioned that Marvel was creating the much anticipated omnibus for Star Wars The High Republic Phase I.
This collected edition will include
- Star Wars: The High Republic (2021) 1-15 by Cavan Scott
- Star Wars: The High Republic Trail of Shadows (2021) 1-5 by Daniel Jose Older
- And Star Wars: Eye of the Storm (2022) 1-2 by Charles Soule
READ NEXT: See all variants for all Star Wars: The High Republic Phase II comics here.
Today’s update is just to let you know that the final order cutoff (the final date for comic shops to order it and be guaranteed they get them) is May 1st, 2023. Assuming you are not a comic shop, why is this important to you? Many shops and online retailers offer discounts for those who pre-order before FOC so if you are 100% going to get this you may want to do it sooner than later.
For example, TFAW currently has them 30% off as of me writing this post.
Pre-order details below.
Star Wars High Republic Vol 1 Omnibus (HC)
(W) Cavan Scott, Daniel Jose Older, Charles Soule (A) Various (A/CA) Ario Anindito, Phil Noto
A new era of Star Wars storytelling! Centuries before the Empire and the Skywalker Saga, the Jedi of Starlight Beacon – including Masters Avar Kriss and Sskeer, and young Padawan Keeve Trennis – protect the galaxy as republic pioneers push out into new territories. But soon they must join forces with their deadliest enemy to face the onslaught of the unstoppable Drengir horde! But who – or what – is the Great Progenitor? And what nameless terror will be unleashed by the dreaded Nihil? Plus: Marchion Ro – the Eye of the Nihil – reveals the source of the Jedi’s greatest fear! And Jedi Investigator Emerick Caphtor uncovers a mystery that will change the golden era of the High Republic forever!
Collecting STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC (2021) #1-15, STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC – EYE OF THE STORM #1-2 and STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC – TRAIL OF SHADOWS
In Shops: Oct 18, 2023
I’m going with the DM variant because Ario is my guy but they are both great choices. Also, I was very pleased to see that they were including both Trail of Shadows and Eye of the Storm in this. I was halfway expecting smaller Hardcover editions to come out first before giving us the full banana with an official omnibus!
Dark Horse is also doing an omnibus for Phase I of Star Wars High Republic Adventures (originally published by IDW) but there are no pre-order details available at the moment. I’ll update you when I have more details on that one.
For Light and Life!
