Star Wars: Comics In Canon - Ep 99: Revenge Of The Nihil; More Star Wars Manga (The Edge Of Balance Volume 2)
THE STAR WARS MANGA CONTINUES WHERE THE NIHIL ATTACK! In ep 99 of SWCIC, Mike continues on his journey through the manga set in the High Republic era! This volume continues the journeys of Jedi Knight Lily Tora-Asi, two excitable younglings and Lily’s padawan Keerin, all on the planet Banchii. Some familiar faces from the High Republic Adventures comics (by Daniel José Older) appear and the younglings even participate in the great jedi race aboard Starlight Beacon, but it’s not all fun and games as the notorious Nihil prepare to attack the temple once again – will our heroes be able to stop it?
