    Cavan Scott and Ario Anindito remind us of how amazing Star Wars comics can be in the right hands. The High Republic was gone too long and even with the reset this book retains so much of the fun and adventure of the original run. Read Full Review

    Anindito delivers some great art throughout the issue. The character designs are great and I love the world of these characters and how dense the city seems. Read Full Review

    While other High Republic works haven't really grabbed me, this incarnation has its hooks in me pretty good and this second issue really helps that. Focusing on just a few characters while playing in a larger and more diverse setting, especially with the various religious aspects, leads to a lot of new things that can be added. And we're very early in discovering who these characters are as well which helps a lot and makes for a good part of the journey. Cavan Scott has given this a feel that leans more toward novel than comic, which is a big plus, while Ario Anindito and Mark Morales put in some great pages and designs to make it all come together and alive in an engaging way. There's a lot of details to catch here and I'm looking forward to seeing more settings in Jedha explored that hopefully can be referenced down the line elsewhere too. Read Full Review

    The issue ends with our new trio of heroes cornered by a new, but also familiar enemy. The nest issues promises to start off with some action as it will endeavor to further the adventures of Vildar Mac, Matthea Cathley, and Tey Sirrek. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Nov 9, 2022

    Star Wars: The High Republic #2 is a good continuation of the story, with a good plot but a mediocre main character in Jedi Vildar Mac. Still, its an interesting story set on one of the more beautiful Star Wars worlds. Read Full Review

    I would recommend this one if you have read any of the High Republic stories in the past or want to jump into a storyline that is near the start without having to do much homework. Read Full Review
