On the latest episode of Star Wars: The High Republic Show, host Krystina Arielle dropped a ton of new The High Republic goodies, including a new audiobook, some great concept art, and much, much more!
Today on The High Republic Show we got a look at a ton of new/old character concept art as well as a batch of new and upcoming The High Republic comic books including next week’s The High Republic Adventures #3 and future issues of Marvel’s The High Republic #7 and IDW’s High Republic Adventures #6, both on sale in June.
In one of the bits of concept art, we get our first look at the Nihil creature, the Bogaranth, who makes its debut in IDW’s Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #3. All that was revealed was that, “Bogaranths are ravenous beasts that leave a trail of slime in their wake as they do battle inside the Nihil arenas.”
Coming this July we’ll see the release of Justina Ireland’s newest Star Wars book, an YA novel called Out of the Shadows, and today we got a look at the book’s main character, Sylverstri Yarrow. As the captain of the cargo ship known as the Switchback, Sylverstri makes her way across the galaxy with her long-time security droid as well as her Sullistan copilot, Neeto. And in the it’s-never-to-late category, we also got some great new concept character art of Affie Hollow and Cohmac Vitus, two of the stars from Claudia Gray’s excellent book, Star Wars: Into the Dark. You can check out all the art plus the full episode of The High Republic Show below.
As for the biggest announcement, Cavan Scott managed to find some more time in his busy schedule to pen another Star Wars audio drama, this one called Tempest Runner and is due this Fall. Scott’s previous audio drama was Dooku: Jedi Lost, which came out in 2019, and this July he’s got Star Wars: The Rising Storm hitting shelves. While not many details yet on Tempest Runner, but Del Rey Books took to Twitter to make the official announcement…
Coming this fall, a new audio original. A #StarWarsTheHighRepublic villain story!
