This comic run I think I am really going to like. I know it is only issue 2, but I am all in on Yoda being part of these adventures AND I am loving Master Buck because he does not enjoy fighting πŸ˜‚ You know, even though there are many different Star Wars stories, it is great to see people are truly taking a liking to these newest ones. I do feel we as fans have been ready to get out of the Skywalker saga and to be given something new.

Daniel Older is doing such a wonderful job at giving mystery to this comic. He has mad the storyline very thrilling. I can truly see this as a movie. So it does stink to have it as a comic because I want answers now to what is going to happen! πŸ˜… But honestly I do love that this is a comic series because the anticipation of what is going to happen next is great. Similar to how I felt watching WandaVision. I could not wait for Friday’s to come! It was just like waiting for Saturday morning cartoons.

I am also glad this is a comic series because of the artwork. . . .Oh my freaking goodness the artwork! The artwork is AMAZING. There is a fight scene that was extremely exciting to look at. Even the characters are perfectly drawn. Each character has their own unique design. Which is great because there have been other comics where people look the same and it is hard to distinguish between them. I can definitely see at future conventions people dressing up as these characters.

Even though there are TONS of colors being used in this series, thanks nothing clashes with each other. All the colors are perfectly picked. Kudos to Rebecca Nalty. She really really knows how to give this issue such bright colors that bring each scene to life, but can also contrast it with the backdrops.

With Zeen and Lula being the two front female characters, I am excited to see where their story leads. It will also be great to see them and all the other young Padawan’s reach their full potential.

πŸ”΄ Spoiler Summary πŸ”΄

We are still on Tyrmant IV, Bralanak City

When we left off the Jedi came to this city to help the people and found themselves surrounded by enemies. One of the guys says, “Time to crush these tiny Jedi!”. Then we see a bubble that says, “If looking for a tiny Jedi, you are. . .”. THEN YODA IS THERE! When I saw that line I was like awwww yeeaaaah!

While the Jedi are fighting we see Krix, Zeen’s friend, talking with Eldar Tromak about how they saw Zeen use the Force. Someone, who looks like a Vader copycat but his race is called Nihil, comes up behind them and says using the Force is a violation and that he does not like that Krix is defending Zeen.

Zeen tells the other Jedi her friend needs to be saved from the Nihil. Yoda takes it upon himself to do so. The Nihil see’s Yoda is coming and he is scared. He, Krix, and Tromak go onto the ship so they can leave the planet. Nihil is hell bent on getting rid of Yoda because he knows Yoda can ruin everything.

Then we see an all out battle that the Jedi are in. I love this part because Master Buck, who is this very tall and big Jedi Healer, who is not a fan of fighting is telling everyone to be careful and he says that he hates fighting πŸ˜‚ Zeen is proving to be very useful. The Jedi are surrounded and Zeen uses the Force to push everyone away. Master Buck is happy to see that a Republic rescue fleet has arrived.

Yoda secretly meets with Krix and tells him Zeen wants him to have a holo projector and her animal Cham Cham. Krix is hesitant because he feels Zeen has lied to him about the Force all of these years. Kriix then tells everyone on the ship that he found Yoda. Yoda was able to escape the ship with Cham Cham and they see the Nihl ship is getting away. When their ship takes off they start to attack a Republic medical ship.

The Jedi are heading back to Starlight Beacon. Zeen is crying because she does not have her best friend with her and she left the only home she ever knew.
