Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #33

Star Wars #33

– Spoiler Review –

While the Star Wars mainline series was saved, momentarily, by The Screaming Citadel crossover with the Doctor Aphra series, it’s been awhile since I’ve really enjoyed an issue and knowing the next arc would start with Luke and Leia getting some alone time on an island, my apprehension was simply not helped. Thankfully, Star Wars #33 is a return to form for the series, not only giving us fantastic insight into Leia, but also some enjoyable twin team moments and the most exciting set up yet for what’s to come next (Hint: the series first (and nearly only) new character and a certain charming smuggler)!

Darth Vader Dark Lord of the Sith #2

Spoiler Review –

Darth Vader – Dark Lord of the Sith #2 can barely contain the Sith Lord’s rage as he barrels towards a Jedi enemy to defeat, who is introduced alongside an intriguing new revelation about the Jedi…with potential to tie into not only Luke’s story for The Last Jedi, but other Jedi. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader – Dark Lord of the Sith #2”

Canon Comic Review: Darth Maul #4

Darth Maul #4

– Spoiler Review –

While the verdict is still out if this latest of Darth Maul comics is a must-read, as there’s still one issue left, issue #4 makes another strong case for itself due to providing even more reasons to adore, root for, and be afraid for the likely doomed Jedi Padawan Eldra Kaitis.

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron Annual #1

Poe Dameron Annual #1

– Spoiler Review –

The Poe Dameron series has been delivering good ol’ fashion adventure and excitement since 2016 and it has now been around long enough to get an (official, more on that in a bit) Annual #1! Series writer Charles Soule takes a break and Robbie Thompson steps in, along with Nik Virella and Jordan Boyd on the art team for an enjoyably fun issue that unfortunately retreads realizations Poe’s already made about his role in the Resistance. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron Annual #1”

Star Wars #32 - The Screaming Citadel Part 4

– Spoiler Review –

Star Wars #32 is Part 4 of The Screaming Citadel crossover and it is the zaniest and most enjoyable issue yet! Triple-Zero falls in love (?!?), the symbiotes bring plenty of screams, and Doctor Aphra makes a surprising (for her, at least) decision. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #32 – The Screaming Citadel Part 4”

Darth Vader Dark Lord of the Sith #1

Spoiler Review –

Darth Vader – Dark Lord of the Sith #1 begins literally right where Revenge of the Sith left off, delving into earliest days of Vader’s Sith training under Emperor Palpatine’s yoke. Written by Charles Soule, who hasn’t disappointed yet with his 3 other Star Wars series, with an art team consisting of Giuseppe Camuncoli, Cam Smith, and David Curiel, the Dark Lord’s first trials come to brutal and satisfying light in a promising start to the next Darth Vader series!
