Review: Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #1

Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #1

As a huge fan of Star Wars, I never could get enough of the literary canon. The books that encapsulated this world in the years between the original trilogy and Lucas’s second trilogy are some of the best. The books looked to fill those plot holes which fans always wondered about. For the longest time, fans had given up hope on any new movies.

This is exactly why the books filled that crucial void that fans felt. It brought us back to that universe and reminded us of the stakes our heroes had. It is within those books, an auteur like Timothy Zahn gave fans a heartfelt love letter within his sprawling novels. I do enjoy the new ones, but it exists within a world where opportunities to consume Star Wars are numerous. That still includes books but also now podcasts, TV shows, and movies. In IDW Publishing‘s Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #1 we find some of those same ghosts within these stories.

We are taken to the Trymant System, where a group of young Padawans, under the guidance of Yoda, are on a mission to Bralanak City, to save the people from hyperspace disaster fallout, and where a young Jedi, Lula Talisola, will soon become his brightest. Meanwhile in Bralanak City, we meet Zeen Mralan inhabitant who had been thought their whole lives to beware of the Force. Yoda deploys the Padawans on speeders to save any civilians they can, which leads to a skirmish with some pirates looking to loot the planet. By issue’s end, a secret comes out , which only draws opposition.

Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #1 is an exciting debut issue that stokes the nostalgia from the first six movies of the franchise. The story by Daniel Jose Older is grand and exciting. The art by Harvey Tolibao is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that pushes the narrative on the Star Wars Universe, giving way to more ways to explore.
