    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri May 6, 2021

    This is the book where we see the largest amount of Nihil and the general Jedi order within their respective worlds and it is everything we'd imagine. It is an interesting juxtaposition of this massive Jedi order against the scrappy nests of Nihil. Thankfully all of this is just the beginning as The High Republic era and Daniel Jose Older's involvement in the Star Wars Universe are just getting started. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone May 4, 2021

    I continue to enjoy this series which has been slowly building to what I feel will be a very climatic finale. This book is packed full of Jedi and force users displaying all kinds of powers but underneath it all is a deep and meaningful story about friendship and trust. Read Full Review

    Older continues to find ways to create characters that young readers can connect with and learn from, while never sacrificing the stakes of the story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ellie J. May 10, 2021

    This series is... complicated. It's leagues better than IDW's other Star Wars series, but it's still lacking in some ways. These characters are extremely engaging and interesting (particularly how Zeen's story was seemingly an allegory for being LGBTQ and living in an unaccepting environment), but it's so barebones that it barely does anything with all that potential. The most consistent thing about it is the art, which is very good for an IDW Star Wars series. Harvey Tolibao and Rebecca Nalty are doing very well. I'm hoping the series gets better next issue, since it's pretty much locked in to actually doing something because of that cliffhanger, but we'll see. Read Full Review
