StarWars.com has announced Star Wars: The High Republic- Trail of Shadows, a brand-new Marvel Comics series coming in October.
The new limited series will be the latest story set in the exciting High Republic era, the publishing-led Star Wars storytelling initiative that began earlier this year.
Written by Daniel José Older with art by David Wachter, Star Wars: The High Republic- Trail of Shadows marks Marvel’s second venture into The High Republic, following the hit ongoing series, Star Wars: The High Republic.
‘Following the shocking events of the Republic Fair, the Jedi call upon one of their own, Emerick Caphtor, to investigate a strange mystery with ties to the Jedi Order. At the same time, Chancellor Lina Soh calls upon Sian Holt, a high-end, in-demand private detective to look into the same mystery. But will either solve this riddle before anyone else dies?’
“There are so many weird and terrifying threads to unravel here, and David Wachter’s excellent art fits the mood, urgency, and depth of this story perfectly,” Older told StarWars.com. “I am beyond excited to be working on this thrilling, creepy, delightful story.”
