Emerick Caphtor and Sian Holt investigate a death at Grizal and some black market Nihil dealings all while mumbling a haunting nursery rhyme from the past… Daniel José Older and David Wachter bring something strong to this mini-series. The art and splash pages pop and the writing is excellent! This comic series has a strong film noir vibe (or Tech Noir… like that club in Terminator…) Not only that but we start to get some answers about the Nihil and their anti-Jedi weapon…
And a jillion more questions…
Shadows and Dust
Right out the gate, this series pulls no punches.

Shrii Ka Rai Ka Rai
Trail of Shadows starts off strong and keeps digging deeper. The characters, like us, want answers and it’s great to finally get a few. As the first phase of The High Republic comes to a close some things become clearer and I’m definitely all in for the future!
This comic is a must-read for anyone wanting a few answers, some mystery, and a little horror!
