    It's becoming clear that this title is the inconsequential portion of The High Republic story. The highlight in this volume is the stories from the annual where the authors of the novels come in and write little stories featuring their characters. The rest is pretty bad.

    I really enjoyed this volume. I love the continuity between all the Star Wars universe. I love the way these connect to the novels and comics despite being from different companies.

    This the second collection of an ongoing series. Even though it is the second collection a reader could jump in here for a starting point. The reason for this is that there is not one continuous story line. Instead, we get a bunch of short stories. If I had to use one word to describe this collection that word would be "inconsequential". Nothing of real substance happens in this collection. Nothing of importance happens in this collection.

In fact, in one of the issues it replays a scene from another previous comic issue. That is not what I want in an unread issue. To read something that I already read. I would understand if it did this for an impact of the current story. It did not as it seemed like it was there just to fill up the pages. This series is for younger children and it definitely reads and looks it. The story borders on the silly at all times and the padawan characters come across as "mary sues" as they seem infallible. The artwork doesn't work for me either as it seems convoluted and the coloring does not do itself any favors. I wasn't really expecting much going into this and it delivered on that account. I know this series really isn't meant for the serious reader. The problem is that Disney is treating like it should be when it isn't. Basically, this collection and series is just a cash grab for Disney using the series of The High Republic.

    Two volumes deep into “The High Republic Adventures” comic site, and it’s become pretty clear that this series is basically meant to act as the ‘fun, if inessential’ pup of the “High Republic” line.

That the series itself seems to be steering away from the grander initiative-pushing narratives that characterize Marvel’s other “High Republic” series is less a fault and more a feature: “The High Republic Adventures” may not be the most “important” entry of the “High Republic” publishing line in terms of advancing the broader story, but it is among the most consistently enjoyable, month to month. And that’s not nothing.

    This was a little disjointed. Some stories had art that was just okay, and some had art that was amazing. There also wasn’t a real overarching plot, which felt weird. Anyway, it was fine.

    Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, Vol. 2 was a super fun read. There wasn't as much development of the main story as I expected but the 2021 Annual stories were such a delight that I still enjoyed the volume.

    Another Volume of the juvenile version of the High Republic stories. I do enjoy them, but wish they were longer and more involved. A bunch of topics are covered here: Attack on the Republic Fair, Farzala taken hostage during a peace meeting between the Republic and the Hutts, Defense of Takodana (next time as this was only the setup), short stories featuring some Jedi we've already lost in the adult novels... but overall, a good collection. Recommend. Another Volume of the juvenile version of the High Republic stories. I do enjoy them, but wish they were longer and more involved.

    7/10: This collection of comics is so much better than the first! It does a great job connecting to the events of the High Republic era while standing on its own in terms of storytelling and better art than the first volume! Genuinely looking for reading more about these characters soon!

    I'm not connecting with these characters as well as some others, and I suspect some of that is due to artwork I don't like that well. I'm not connecting with these characters as well as some others, and I suspect some of that is due to artwork I don't like that well.

I don't really have the heart to say no, unless they order something I already have. But today's review is one of those recommendations that hit a bullseye. Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures is the all-ages version of Marvel's more mature comics series. I haven't been reading any of this, mostly because my Star Wars era is Classic Trilogy. (The first is the best!) The premise is that centuries before the rise of the Skywalkers, the Republic is at its zenith. The Jedi are highly revered and Yoda is old, but not that old. The safety of the galaxy is threatened by two fronts. A carnivorous species of plants called the Drengir is viewing the inhabited planets of the Republic as their own personal smorgasbord. Meanwhile, a group of space pirates called the Nihil see the Great Expansion of the Galactic Republic as a threat to their territories and way of life. Using a specialized type of hyperspace that can bend the rules of physics, the Nihil can attack anywhere at anytime without warning and without remorse. The first collection of stories introduced all of the major players to this story. As I've come in somewhere in the middle, I was a little bit lost. Thankfully, the writers do a fairly good job keeping the readers on top of things. And whatever questions that still remain a quick jaunt to Wookieepedia provides me those answers I seek. Besides Yoda, there aren't very many characters from any of the movie trilogies. And for now, Yoda is M.I.A. Yet without these familiar faces, this series is very much Star Wars. There's swashbuckling adventures, crossroad level life-changing choices and Jedi. Lots and lots of Jedi. The good thing about these stories is that despite not having those icons of Star Wars that are beloved, there is a theme and feeling that young readers will love. My first toe dip into the Era of the High Republic. And I had a blast. My heart still belongs on Hoth, Bespin and a certain princess. But I enjoyed this collection enough to want to both get my hands on volume 1 and find out what happens next! I think the young reader Star Wars fan in your life is gonna feel the same.

    A collection of adventures from across the High Republic featuring Jedi tackling the Nihil, the Drengir and the Hutts, among other challenges. The bulk of this book is made up of stories, by Daniel Jose Older, continuing the adventures of the young Padawans introduced in Volume 1 of this series, beginning with the attack on the Republic Fair (231 BBY), continuing through a confrontation with the Hutts and the Drengir and ending with a Nihil attack against Takodana (Maz Kanata's home from 'The For A collection of adventures from across the High Republic featuring Jedi tackling the Nihil, the Drengir and the Hutts, among other challenges. The bulk of this book is made up of stories, by Daniel Jose Older, continuing the adventures of the young Padawans introduced in Volume 1 of this series, beginning with the attack on the Republic Fair (231 BBY), continuing through a confrontation with the Hutts and the Drengir and ending with a Nihil attack against Takodana (Maz Kanata's home from 'The Force Awakens', if it sounds familiar) We then get a series of shorter tales which range from an adventure with Bell Zettifar and Loden Greatstorm from before the High Republic series began to Vernestra Rwoh's first meeting with her Master, Stellan Gios. Whilst less engaging than the main storyline, it was nice to see some vignettes of characters from across the High Republic story era. It may be that this far in (for me; two novels and five graphic novels) that I've finally started to get to grips with the main players of the High Republic, but overall this book felt more settled and less unfamiliar than some of the other High Republic stories have. The appearances of characters from other mediums felt more natural and less forced, meaning that seeing the likes of Bell Zettifar or Ram Jomaram didn't feel as incongruous as they could have. Strangely, this book was the first time that I felt as if the High Republic had a cohesive narrative, which was particularly weird in an anthology with tales from various timeframes. It's far from perfect or mind-blowing, but this was a very solid and enjoyable addition to the High Republic era. * More reviews here: https://fsfh-book-review2.webnode.com *

    Some fun stuff here, but it's too scattered to make much of an impact. The first half focuses on a character we haven't spent much time with before, and the unremarkable story doesn't do anything to develop him memorably. The second half fares better, as it shifts back to the cast of the first volume—who have grown up a bit during the year-ish time jump, which, unfortunately, is poorly explained, so the change is pretty jarring.

But it's nice seeing that cast again, and I'm glad the next volume seems to be shifting focus back on them. The annual issue included here is the easy standout. The collection of stories adds some fun dimensions by jumping backward in time to show us some of the earlier/earliest adventures of characters we know from the novels. It's still nothing all that notable, but they're enjoyable reads, and the artwork is nice and unique. As a whole, the artwork is hit-or-miss for me this time, but the colors remain top-notch. I love Star Wars comics when they're vibrant, and this series is certainly that. Overall, a pretty skippable collection, but I enjoy reading Star Wars stuff that's unabashedly geared toward younger readers because that's the age I was when I first got into the movies. It's fun looking at it from that perspective.

    Little bit of a detour from the previous volume, as this one doesn't focus on the two kids. Instead we are treated to a story about the Hutts, they're trying to give peace a chance whilst talking to the Jedi but an assassination attempt puts a spanner in the works. There are quite a few story stories in this but it doesn't detract from the story. It's just showing us what the rest of the Jedi are doing in the universe, which is quite interesting.

    This volume in The High Republic Adventures is much more of an anthology collection, in comparison to Volume One, collecting together issues #6 to #8 of the main book, as well as the Free Comic Book Day issue and all of the stories in the 2021 Annual.

Due to the nature of being aimed at a younger audience, all the artwork here is gloriously vibrant and is all coloured beautifully. I wasn't too fond of the text used for the lettering in the speech in the main issues, but that was a minor gripe for me, something I got over quickly. Despite this being my only interaction with The High Republic as of yet, the comic still gives me a good sense of the feeling and overall aesthetic of this era of Star Wars. I can't wait to read more.

    I'd give it 4.5/10. I really disliked the smaller size of this collected edition. The main story is still pretty bland, and seems to be targeted for younger audiences. Half of the book doesn't continue the main story anyways, as some are one shot stories from the annual release. Some plots look as if they were included just to reference characters from other stories I personally don't care about, and it just makes the galaxy look smaller than Smallville.

I didn't enjoy the art either, most of it looked too cartoonish for my taste. I'm too much of a Star Wars not to read this, but definitely something I cannot recommend to anyone.

    Awful. No protagonist. Just a series of random vignettes. They jump around in time and place with no guide. We have 20+ characters in 5 childrens comics with no character building. Krix continues to have no motive. He wants to kill all Jedi and Force users. He wants to kill civilians. He wants to kill subordinates who are too slow or scared. He is a whiny brat who was given power that he did not earn, and is literally a sociopath. So…basically the same background as most Nihil. What dumb antagon Awful. No protagonist.

The art looks like Sunday morning cartoons in the newspaper. The panels are too busy. IDW printed this at digest size so I can’t see anything. Some of the worst Star Wars since Episode IX. An emphatic: 1/10 God, why do I still read every piece of Star Wars content???

    This volume of Adventures knocks it out of the park! Issues 6 and 7, which really focus on Farzala, are perhaps my favorite issues of the series since the first one, with excellent character work and Jedi wisdom, plus a stellar Into the Dark crossover! The Free Comic Book Day issue is a great time, too, taking place smack during the climax of The Rising Storm (and after Race to Crashpoint Tower).

Having a short one-shot from each author is fun, but none of the vignettes are terribly engaging. I'd give them an average of 3 stars each.

    I liked this much better than the first volume. I enjoyed Farzala’s struggle with fear and what it meant to be a jedi. I still think Feen and Krit are utterly boring. Krix just seems overly big mad, but I understand they had been taught jedis/the force was bad. I’m glad there was a mixture of artists this time, but I didn’t care for some of the one-off stories at the end. Of course, I have to acknowledge I’ve never kept up with or been a Star Wars fan, so your mileage may vary.

    Yes, I should have known better. But I still wanted to read it! And I finally got to see my fave, Geode, in action (from a certain point of view, ha!). I was actually enjoying myself and then...oh dear. This volume contains multiple one shots and the plot ceases halfway through. Very disappointing.

    Couple of interesting short stories....leaving arcs unfinished is annoying when itis half way through the book. Short story format makes the book seem a little jumpy, especially as they add very little to the overall understanding of the larger High Republic narrative.

    I continue to ADORE the THR comics. DJO really shines in his comic contributions and I can't wait for more from him. I also am very happy that they included some stories that were first published in the SW magazines. It's nice to have access to those here. I continue to ADORE the THR comics.

    These were okay. Nothing too special. There were a lot more slow moments than were in volume 1. Some of the scenes highlighted didn't seem too especially important to the overall story of THR. Again, the art was gorgeous. These were okay. Nothing too special. There were a lot more slow moments than were in volume 1.
