Dark Horse Books and Lucasfilm Publishing present the latest adventures from a galaxy far, far away in Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Phase III Volumes 1 and 2, both available for pre-order now wherever comics and books are sold. The first volume will arrive this August, and Volume 2 will follow in January 2025.

Hope burns bright for the survivors of the fall of Starlight Beacon, but the lurking presence of the dangerous band of marauders known as the Nihil grows ever closer. These two volumes are written by New York Times bestselling author Daniel José Older, one of the original story architects of the High Republic, and illustrated by Harvey Tolibao, Nick Brokenshire, Elisa Romboli, and Toni Bruno (Volume 2), colored by Michael Atiyeh, and lettered by Comicraft. Cover art for both volumes is by Harvey and Kevin Tolibao.

Hundreds of years before the Skywalker Saga, brave and wise Jedi were at their height in the era of The High Republic! The final phase of this groundbreaking story starts here, as the forces of light and life battle against the villainous Nihil.

In Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Phase III Volume 1, it’s been one year since the destruction of Starlight Beacon. Since then, Zeen Mrala, Jedi Knight Qort, and their allies have been picking up the pieces, searching for their friends amidst the wreckage. Meanwhile, the marauders known as the Nihil have advanced further into Republic space, leaving destruction in their wake. But hope is rekindled when Zeen finds new evidence of survivors scattered throughout the galaxy. Who else escaped the fall of Starlight Beacon, and where have they been during these past months? Follow Zeen and her friends as they uncover the answers to these questions, rebuild their team, and head into battle for light and life!

Continuing in Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Phase III Volume 2, Zeen Mrala has rescued the love of her life and saved her Jedi friends from certain doom. But their reunion is bittersweet. As the Stormwall threatens to engulf the planet Eriadu, Zeen, Lula Talisola, and their allies must prepare for another, much larger fight with the Nihil. The fate of the entire Republic is on the line!
