    But Why Tho? - Adrian Ruiz Mar 3, 2021

    Overall, Star Wars: The High Republic #3is a terrifying ride that already pays off the nuggets left in the previous two issues. Trennis continues to embody the best qualities we have come to expect from the Jedi Order as she helps others selflessly and fearlessly. Sskeer madness continues to build as his failures compound. More importantly, the Drengir have reared their ugly heads in the comics. Scott is knocking this series out of the park, and I can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - NumidianPrime Mar 7, 2021

    This seies is definitely a must-read fo all fans of Star Wars comics. The wider Marvel slate is already looking pretty decent so far and this series still manages to shine above the rest. I'm really looking forward to following it for the rest of its hopefuly long run and I hope that it can keep up this level of quality the whole way. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Mar 3, 2021

    After a battle on all fronts, the issue ends with the arrival of the other Jedi with a controlled Sskeer siding with the Drengir. The visuals throughout the issue are well done with great Jedi appearances and action. Everything from seeing a Hutt being dissected to seeing force powers and light sabers in action are done well. The plant-like prison is visually dynamic and interesting. That being said it would be nice if the Drengir were a bit more ominous looking and a bit less like extras from Little shop of horror. But the overall look of the issue is fantastic and the writing and art quality is top notch. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Edward Lee Mar 3, 2021

    The action and intrigue have really heated up in this issue, which will certainly lead readers to want to check out the next one. A big baddie had been revealed, and its using an old ally as a weapon. Its anybodys guess as to where Kreeve and Avar go next, but it is sure to be dangerous and fun. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Justin Munday Mar 3, 2021

    An entertaining third chapter that introduces a bold new threat into the Star Wars universe, with a solid (if not occasionally hammy) script and phenomenal visuals. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 9, 2021

    We get some decent movement forward here in some of what's causing trouble in the area but it's not part of the bigger picture just yet as to what's been happening since they found the empty ship that lead them to this world. There are interesting moments throughout and I'm enjoying watching Keeve trying to find her balance as a Jedi now that she's not just a padawan anymore and has to play the part until it just becomes who she is. Scott's script flows pretty well and it balances the various stories smoothly and without any problems, giving each of them enough time. At this point, it's really just Avar Kriss that doesn't feel fleshed out but that's just within the context of this series itself. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Mar 7, 2021

    Overall. I'm probably going to stick with this comic until it concludes. But for time being. I am not being wowed by anything that ‘The High Republic' has to offer. It feels very much like a poor man's version of ‘Knights of the Old Republic'. Quite frankly. I'm getting rather bored of this. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dom Berardi Mar 7, 2021

    The art in this issue is handled by Ario Anindito, Mark Morales, and Annalisa Leoni. The art in this issue is completely versatile to the needs of the event happening in the story. If it needs to fit a scary scene, the characters are depicted in horrifying scenarios that could make the reader wince, if they need to show a jedi being heroic, then you get a great action shot of them coming down and splitting their opponent in two. The designs for the characters are also to be commended as each character has their own unique look that makes them instantly recognizable. This is an important part for a fledgling series because as we learn about the characters, they need to also stand out in our heads. As mentioned before, Master Ssker stands out as more interesting than other characters and the design of a one-armed Trandoshan jedi certainly stands out among other characters. As for the action scenes, they are fun to see unfold on the page and the lightsabers of jedi are used in creative wa Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Mar 3, 2021

    The first issue left a lot to be desired, while the second issue was a fun read. Our third chapter falls in the middle. It's more safe than boring and tries new things that don't completely stick the landing but are interesting enough to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Mar 3, 2021

    Final ThoughtsThe Star Wars: The High Republic #3 continues to introduce more of the new villains of this era who continue to disappoint. The art is good but there are moments in this comic that don't feel too developed or well-thought out. Fans of the High Republic may enjoy this, but it's not a strong recommend to those waiting on the fence. Read Full Review

    This issue sucked. I find it strange that Bartol would just jump into a giant and dangerous sinkhole because of his trust that Keeve would save him, someone who he had literally just met. As if that were not dangerous enough lets just hand this kid, who was dumb enough to impulsively jump down a sinkhole, a drawn lightsaber! "...Sure, I do. I cant keep it floating up there all day, can I?" Well how about you put it in its holster, you know, like a normal jedi. Also I dont get why Keeve was still asking for help from Ceret after he CLEARLY showed that he had been possessed by these bird plant things.
    Sad issue but I still look forward to the series!
