The students from Strange Academy will return in May courtesy of writer Daniel José Older and artist Luigi Zagaria, as they engage with the bloodthirsty undead in this summer’s Blood Hunt.

“As a huge fan of the incredible work of Skottie Young and Humberto Ramos, I was beyond honored to be able to jump into the world of Strange Academy,” Older said. “And what better way to do it than in this epic crossover event? Truly a comic writer’s dream come true. I’ve spent the past couple weeks walking around my home city of New Orleans, dreaming up thrilling adventures for these kids, and I can’t wait to watch them come to life in Luigi Zagaria’s brilliant art.”

More High Republic Adventures crash-land at Dark Horse

A one-shot featuring Alys “Crash” Ongwa and a miniseries featuring former Jedi Ty Yorrick will arrive this spring.

Dark Horse has announced two more projects that look back at the pre-Skywalker Star Wars universe, back in the heyday of the Jedi. Return to the High Republic era in the one-shot subtitled Crash Landing and the four-issue Saber for Hire miniseries.

Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Phase III—Crash Landing is by the team of Daniel José Older (author of several Star Wars: The High Republic novels), artist Rachele Aragno and colorist Michael Atiyeh, with letters by Comicraft.

The story features Alys “Crash” Ongwa, who has hails from the same planet that would eventually give us Han Solo — Corellia, which is known for producing ships and pilots. Corellia fell into chaos because of the Nihil conflict, which has been central to the overall High Republic saga.

“Crash and her wild outlaw team of bodyguards are some of my favorite Star Wars characters to write,” Older said, “and I’ve had this story about how they deal with the aftermath of war inside me for a long time, trying to get out. I’m so excited to be able to tell it now with this amazing team, and rest assured we haven’t heard the last of Crash and her crew.”

Dark Horse reveals details on three ‘Star Wars High Republic’ titles

Dark Horse heads back to the Jedi Council’s past for several new all-ages adventures.

Dark Horse has revealed details on three new Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures titles they have in the works.

Dark Horse announced they had picked up the license to publish all-ages Star Wars titles last year, a license previously held by IDW Publishing — and one that’s distinctly different from the publishing license Dark Horse had in years past, the one now held by Marvel. Earlier this year Dark Horse released Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories, their first foray back into the Star Wars universe.

The three new titles are set during the High Republic timeline, which is many decades before the stories told during the Skywalker saga films. So far the stories have spanned novels and comics, and focus heavily on the Jedi Council.

Here’s a look at the three new titles:
