    The Drengir have been pushed back for now. Keeve Trennis and the Jedi of Starlight Beacon must turn their attention to planet Valo, where the Nihil are causing terror and mayhem. They have been mostly absent in this series so far. It is time the Nihil meet Kreeve Trennis! Read Full Review

    This battle really allows Anindito to showcase some incredible skill, with the best art we've seen in this series. The Drengir here feel deadly rather than silly. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a fun, spectacle-filled issue and a must read for anyone interested in following the High Republic era. I have let to be fully let down by a story from this initiative and this comic remains one of my favorites. The issue's cliffhangar of an ending gives us some exciting setup for the fallout the next arc will be dealing with. I'm here for the long haul with the story of Keeve Trennis and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    The period of the High Republic offers a lot of things to explore and understand, to showcase a very different age of the Jedi than how we saw them at the end of their power and the end of the Republic. I like the superficial characters that we get here which are just starting to be explored (and getting explored in novels in some cases) but I wish the comics would lean a touch more into the novel side to just showcase and breathe in and out more. To exist within this period instead of racing from danger to the next, fighting and yelling all the way. It's done well for what it's trying to do and it certainly has a lot of fun with it, but it leaves me wishing it was just a bit more. Read Full Review

    STORYStar Wars: The High Republic #8 written by Cavan Scott with art by Ario Anindito is the climactic battle conclusion between the Jedi-Hutt alliance and the Drengir. It all comes down to this. Can the Jedi and Hutts put their differences aside and work together to defeat the Drengir? Can Keeve Trennis & Orla Jareni arrive in time to help the alliance? Whats going on with Marshal Kriss? Will her bonding with the Progenitor be too much for the Hutt Alliance to overcome? These are all questions that are answered in this issue! Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Aug 16, 2021

    The Star Wars universe gets more dangerous in this latest issue as the storyline wraps up. It's a fun actioner, but it's packed with world-building, detailed art, and is just a lot of fun. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Charlie Ridgely Aug 11, 2021

    Despite quite a few wonky dialogue exchanges at the beginning of the issue (balancing innuendo and Star Wars has always been a challenge), the action throughout this latest High Republic tale is rather exciting. Read Full Review
