‘Star Wars: The High Republic’ Enters Phase Two With New Marvel Comics Series

Yesterday at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, fans got an exciting look at what’s to come in Phase II of Star Wars: The High Republic. The successful publishing initiative will begin an all-new era of interconnected stories told across novels, children’s books, and of course, comics! Marvel Comics’ Star Wars: The High Republic sagas will return this fall with a new ongoing Star Wars: The High Republic comic series and a new limited series titled Star Wars: The High Republic The Blade.

Launching in October, Star Wars: The High Republic #1 will see writer Cavan Scott (Star Wars: The Rising Storm) and artist Ario Anindito reunite after their mega successful run on volume 1. Set 150 years before Phase 1, Phase II of Star Wars: The High Republic will center around Jedha, a planet rich in its connection to the Force and the focus of every major faith in the galaxy. The new flagship Star Wars: The High Republic comic series will introduce Jedi Vildar Mac, who arrives as Jedha’s fragile peace begins to crumble and a nameless terror arrives…

Author of Star Wars: The High Republic Light of the Jedi and one of the chief architects behind the Star Wars: The High Republic storytelling initiative, writer Charles Soule will team up with artist Marco Castiello Star Wars: The High RepublicThe Blade #1. The four-issue limited series will explore the mysterious backstory of Porter Engle, the Jedi-turned-cook also known as the Blade of Bardotta.
