Hot on the heels of The Rising Storm, issue six of Star Wars: The High Republic lands in stores today, kicking off our new arc – Heart of the Drengir.
Here’s what’s in store in this issue:
THE GALAXY UNITES AGAINST THE DRENGIR.
A frontier in crisis. The Jedi of Starlight Beacon have joined forces with a feared enemy to face the terror of the unstoppable Drengir Horde. While Avar Kriss and her new allies fight nightmarish creatures on the lava world of Daivak, can Keeve Trennis save her former master from complete absorption? And, who or what is the Great Progenitor?
For those who’ve asked, it’s absolutely safe to read issue six before picking up The Rising Storm as this part of Heart of the Drengir takes place before the events of the novel. In fact, it might help you with certain things in the book!
Here’s a look at some of the pages with script by me, art by guest artist Georges Jeanty, inks by Karl Story, colours by Annalisa Leoni and letters by VC’s Joe Caramagna.
