    This series has been some of the best Star Wars tales we've seen in both the story-telling and the art, giving us a visually amazing and character centered view of the central conflict of the High Republic between the Nihil and the Jedi. It will be fascinating to see how this conflict and these characters shift moving forward. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #5 is a very good concluding issue to the series first story arc. If youve read and enjoyed the previous issues, I would recommend picking up this issue also. You wont be disappointed. If you havent been reading the series, I wouldnt start here. Get all five issues or start picking up the book beginning with the next issue. Thus far Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures has been an enjoyable read in this reviewer's opinion with solid characters, writing, and artwork. I am looking forward to the next story arc.

    The action in this issue drags a little, and while the art style is usually one of the book's strengths, it muddies things up a bit when so much is going on. Read Full Review

    The first five issues have introduced a number of characters and been exposition-heavy while juxtaposing two youngsters - one aligned to the Jedi, the other to the Nihil. This issue's story is good; Art is a little too busy due to the junk planet environment, but I'm glad they wrapped up this initial arc tidily enough.

    Fans of the High Republic books in general should note that there is a VERY interesting reveal at the end of the book - not of a "shocking twist" variety, but more of a reveal you won't want to miss with regards to a specific character.
