Good point.

Perhaps that is the cause for concern, as the Outer Rim being majorly cut-off from the Core worlds would allow lawlessness and whatnot(in the form of the Nihil) to start running rampant, without the fear of significant Republic/Jedi intervention.

Still not sure why they couldn't use a different hyperlane to access the Outer Rim, but hopefully that will be explained as well... Maybe hyperlanes weren't as easy to come by back then. /shrug

From what I recall, hyperlane mapping is incredibly dangerous, and the farther from the Core Worlds you get, the less stable hyperlanes are. Don't remember if that's Legends or Canon info, though, but it's likely why the Outer Rim doesn't have as thoroughly mapped hyperlanes. Either way, I'm looking forward to the full novel.

Yoda will feature prominently in Daniel Jose Older's Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures comic, coming 2021 from IDW Publishing; the Jedi Master that Older depicts in his series, however, won't be quite the same sage-like being we know.

"It's especially exciting to be able to introduce him in the era of the High Republic," Older tells StarWars.com. "The High Republic Yoda is a journeyman out in the galaxy." According to Older, the Emperor's "little green friend" will still be treading somewhat familiar ground -- that of teacher.

"While he's already a respected member of the Jedi Council at this point, we meet Yoda in IDW's The High Republic Adventures series doing what he loves best: looking out for the young folks -- in this case, a group of Padawans traveling around the galaxy to learn the ways of the Jedi with a hands-on approach," Older says. "The Force study abroad program, basically."

Heh. First thing I thought of also. Sooooo, High Republic is official (books & comics so far) - Page 2 1289255181

What concerns me is that Yoda's going to be featured predominately in the IDW/Adventures side of this event... And outside of a few outliers, IDW's SW line has historically been absolute garbage.

I'm stoked I figured he'd be featured in this era given his longevity. I'm curious if we'll see any of his previous students.

Havent read the comic yet but so far the novel by charles soule is actually pretty good as far as im reading it the first ten chapters are slow but once you go to the eleventh it starts taking form i get vibes of the bane trilogy upon reading it further

the junior book is decent nothing too impressive but not too bad either.

So Yoda is still the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order in The High Republic era... But it's a shared position with Grandmaster Veter:

And I'm still reading through Light of the Jedi(which is pretty good so far, tbh), but I found it interesting that a new Jedi by the name of Porter Engle was lowkey given some parity with Yoda in sabers:
He was simply slicing the mines in half as they popped out of the ground. One after another--the maneuver Bell had performed just once and didn't even truly understand how he'd managed, Porter was doing again and again. The expression on his face never changed. His blade flashed, and the metal fell, and he remained untouched.

Both Bell and Loden were transfixed. They were both good swordsmen, and Loden had some claim to being great. But this was like nothing they had ever seen. Not at the Jedi Temple, not from Master Yoda or Zaviel Tepp, or even old Arkoff. Bell couldn't imagine what it would be like to face Porter Engle in combat. The display of skill was beautiful, and they could not stop watching...

Also, Yarael Poof and Oppo Rancisis were alive(and serving as Council members) during this era.

As of now, we don't know where HR Yoda's skill stood in comparison to his RotS self, no.

That said, it's still an ambiguous line, because for all we know the Jedi present had only seen Yoda in sparring sessions and whatnot... So the skill they have actually seen Yoda display thus far may not be indicative of his peak.

Still thought it was interesting, though.

I genuinely don't understand all the complaints about the first issue of the comic. People calling it bad, or shit, or terrible, but not actually saying what they think is wrong with it. The video provided is idiotic and deliberately ignoring the fact that this is a multi-media project, with one story being told across multiple sources (no different from Shadows of the Empire).

He spends a good chunk of the video just complaining about the "NPC" hairstyle and expressions of the main character. Judging from the guy's other recent videos, I'm inclined to believe this is due to some heavy, heavy racial bias on his part (dude posted a video 12 hours ago that appears to be openly supporting the storming of the Capitol building by white supremacists and neo-nazis, which I refuse to watch). He spends so much time complaining about her constantly being angry or scowling. But look at characters like Starkiller. Fan favorite, despite constantly "scowling" or "being angry." So why do fans love it there, but this guy constantly bashes it here? Clearly his problem with the haircut and facial expressions of the character are more of an indication that he has issues than there being issues with the comic.

He complains about the Trandoshan only having one arm, ignoring the fact that the characters openly discuss the fact that the character suffered that injury very recently in that comic. An injury which we see take place in Light of the Jedi. It's not like Trandoshans are Piccolo from DBZ. They can't just immediately regenerate in under a minute.

And yes, the little flying creatures are annoying. That's the point. The main character finds them annoying. They're a distraction to her Jedi trial. A character is allowed to be obnoxious if their role in the story is to be obnoxious.

He also spends a great, great deal of time repeatedly calling the issue boring, yet in the video he outright refuses to talk about the action. Barely showing any of what actually happened in the comic, and instead just reiterating that it's "boring." He then throws out utterly baseless claims about Yoda being "cucked" by the new characters, when Yoda is getting an entire comic run all to himself and his team of Jedi starting in February.

"They've been doing nothing but putting original characters down to make their new characters better," he claims. Clearly he isn't aware of the insane amounts of Vader wank that have been going on for over 3 separate series. Or the Yoda story that happened in the mainline Star Wars comic, where Yoda moved mountains.

He tries to say that a Padawan having a Force vision is bullshit, and it must be some new power just for her. It's a very generic Force vision, and is treated as such in the chapter.

He repeatedly, over and over again, calls Sskeer "disabled," as if it's an insult. Think he throws the same insults out about Vader every time he sees him? Or Maul?

And yes, they never reveal in this chapter why Sskeer was yelling. Because hey, foreshadowing is a thing. They have to leave some mystery for later chapters. It's how you keep readers interested.

That video was basically the most trash, "anti-SJW" "Fandom Menace" bullshit clickbait video I've watched since The Last Jedi came out. I wouldn't even call it a review. It's just the dude throwing out baseless insults and accusations and not really providing any actual valid criticism. He just kept saying, "it's boring, but I refuse to show you the action that happened. Also I don't like this haircut or the fact that a POC always looks angry, and this lizard is disabled. Disabled. Disabled."

the only reason why i dint like the new comic that came out recently is becuase it felt kinda rushed in the most part sometimes i like a story that takes their time to introduce a character or developing the main plot instead of going full action straight way.

but yeah most of the claims of that video are dogshit

not only becuase there isnt even a goddamn thing about SJW stuff on the comic like the guy tries to claim

secondly that youtube channel cames from the same hord of other fandom of the site that watches type of content like nerdocritic (mindless drones that think anything is woke this days)

its better to ignore it and just leave it like that besides youtube s a rabbit hole when it comes to opinions.

I agree the comic felt pretty rushed. But I try to overlook that, since I know it's literally just set up for the actual story that's coming. I'm reserving any judgement for the High Republic comic until at least a full arc has been released.
