With Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The High Republic publishing campaign set to launch in January, IDW Publishing has announced the upcoming launch of Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, a new ongoing comic book series set 200 years before The Skywalker Saga. Check out a first look preview here…
In Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, the Jedi have long maintained galactic peace… but the coming of a powerful new adversary called the Nihil threatens to end it all. Now, a group of Master Yoda’s young Padawan learners must protect the Republic while learning the lessons that will one day lead them to become powerful Jedi in their own right.
“I’m so very excited to be able to tell this epic story of Padawans as the galaxy changes dramatically around them and danger lurks around every corner,” states writer Daniel Jose Older. “Working on The High Republic has been a dream come true and getting to watch this world come to life through the brilliant art of Harvey Tolibao is one of the highlights of my career. I can’t wait for the fans to see what we’re cooking up.”
“Star Wars has always been a part of my life, and was my first huge project back when my career started with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic in 2006,” adds artist Harvey Tolibao. “It’s awesome being part of the High Republic team, working alongside amazing writer Daniel, editors Elizabeth Brei and Riley Farmer, and Lucasfilm. It’s a dream come true.”
“Daniel, Harvey, and colorist Rebecca Nalty have crafted a truly thrilling comic series for fans of all ages,” states Lucasfilm Publishing Creative Director Michael Siglain. “Featuring a dual narrative that focuses on the heroic Jedi and the sinister Nihil, The High Republic Adventures has it all: a diverse group of young Padawans who find themselves in over their heads, lightsaber action, mysterious new villains, more lightsaber action, and Master Yoda, and that’s just the first two issues. This one is not to be missed.”
Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #1 will go on sale on February 3rd 2021.
