•  To some, he was a legend. To others, he was a teacher. Now Yoda is all but forgotten, living in exile and haunted by the past. As a strangely familiar voice echoes through the swamps of Dagobah, Yoda must revisit the many lessons he has given over the years, from the days of the High Republic to the chaos of the Clone Wars.
•  In the first of three story arcs, a desperate cry for help reaches the Jedi Council on Coruscant and only Yoda can respond.
•  But how far will he go to protect a community from attack?

    I'm not looking forward to more of this story so I can get a better idea of where it is going. I suspect that Yoda has other reasons for staying behind on Turrak. Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Yoda #1 is a compelling start to a new series exploring Yoda as a character. As the starting issue, it's fun to see Yoda experience a bit of joy while showing off his power and impressive fighting prowess. Throw in a bit of a mystery in his later years, and there's plenty here for casual fans and hardcore fans to love. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 14, 2022

    The opening story here is one that's certainly familiar but it's executed quite well through both Scott's script that's tight without being overdone with too much dialogue and Leon's artwork that provides for good action and interesting designs for the local species. The color design really is fantastic throughout as Dagobah feels authentic in this early pages but we get a great mix of brightly lit outdoor material as well as grim in the heat of battle stuff that feels truly threatening. I'm curious to see where Scott will go with this as it's planned for several arcs and the tie-ins to the High Republic aspect are interesting to me as I've had such limited exposure to it. There may be a familiar and straightforward approach here but the mystery person is intriguing as it expands our narrative about what went on at Dagobah over the years while getting to see more of Yoda at very different points in his life has a lot of positives to it.

    Yoda is spry, skilled, and clever, reminding audiences of just how many adventures he embarked upon throughout his life and piquing our interest about what the rest of this series could explore and how it may shed new light upon such a well-known Jedi Master. Read Full Review
