New Star Wars Comics: Doctor Aphra #29, Yoda #4, and The High Republic Adventures: The Nameless Terror #1
First up, from Marvel, is Doctor Aphra #29. The Crimson Dawn is in the sights of the Spark Eternal! Can Doctor Aphra’s last-ditch effort to intercept it succeed as Sana Starros and Magna Tolvan race to do so? Or will she be permanently lost to the Spark Eternal?
Doctor Aphra #29 is written by Alyssa Wong and illustrated by Natacha Bustos, with cover art by Ema Lupacchino.
Marvel’s second book this week stars everyone’s favorite lil’ green Jedi, Yoda! In Yoda #4, years before the Clone Wars, Yoda asks Master Dooku, an old acquaintance, to join him in training the next wave of Jedi. Master Yoda will need all the assistance he can get since one of his students is plagued by weird visions.
Yoda #4 is written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Luke Ross, with cover art by Phil Noto.
Finally, from Dark Horse, comes The High Republic: The Nameless Terror #1! There are shadows hiding in the galaxy even amid the bright light of the High Republic. A Jedi mission to the planet Dalna is abruptly attacked by unidentified attackers. It becomes immediately apparent that the knights are not in a secure location as they withdraw to an old building. Something horrible, a merciless predator, an unidentified fear, a Nameless Fear, stalks the ruins!
The High Republic: The Nameless Terror #1 is written by George Mann and illustrated by Eduardo Mello and Ornella Savarese, who also illustrate the cover!
