Star Wars: The High Republic #8 drops today as we race towards the climax of the Heart of the Drengir story arc which sees the events of the Marvel comic converge with those seen in Star Wars: The High Republic – The Rising Storm. (Don’t worry, you can still read issue 8 if you haven’t read The Rising Storm. There is a spoiler but one that has been everywhere since before the book was published!)
Regular series artist Ario Anindito returns, along with colourist Annalisa Leoni and letterer Arian Maher with a cover by Phil Noto and variant cover by Ario.
Take a peek at the opening pages including a stunning battle spread by the team, one of my favourite images from the entire series. (In fact, if you’re interested you can see the script for the page over on my instagram to see how Ario interpreted my original description.)
There are so many panels that I want to highlight for you, but I guess I should let you discover them for yourself!
And what else is in store for this issue you ask?
THE BATTLE AGAINST THE DRENGIR REACHES ITS THRILLING CLIMAX!
- AVAR KRISS has gathered a team of JEDI to take the fight to the DRENGIR deep in WILD SPACE, but KEEVE TRENNIS is nowhere to be seen.
- Are other forces at work on the Drengir’s deathworld?
- Guest-starring a host of High Republic Jedi! COHMAC VITUS! REATH SILAS! PLUS NEW JEDI!
