    By painting Sav as someone uninterested in the Jedi ways, while most of the rest of Star Wars stories see the Jedi as famous myths, we get an entirely new perspective on the galaxy far, far away. Luckily, the inclusion of figures like Maz and Dexter, who appeared in other eras of the franchise, piques our interest in what their earlier exploits were like, so while this issue did little more than set the stage for an upcoming adventure, it marks a compelling blend of freshness and familiarity and we look forward to Sav's upcoming exploits.

    This is a story we have seen before but it is well executed and a nice entry point into this era of the High Republic. This is a fun setup with classic alien rogues as our heroes and a great young Jedi character at the center of it all. Sav feels very much like Jubillee or Kitty Pryde in the X-men as an entry level character we can use to introduce us to a complex group of strangers who seem rough around the edges but are now fundamentally interested in saving their world.
