Captain Phasma #1

Spoiler Review –

Curious to learn how Captain Phasma went from Starkiller Bases’ sole garbage chute occupant back to the frontlines of the First Order’s army? As part of the “Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi” initiative, Captain Phasma sets out to answer that question and it turns out, thanks to Kelly Thompson’s writing and the dynamic art from Marco Checchetto and colors by Andres Mossa, the garbage chute part looks to be the least important aspect of what might turn out to be quite the exciting journey.

Canon Young Adult Novel Review: Leia: Princess of Alderaan

Leia Princess of Alderaan

Spoiler Review –

Written by the fan-favorite (rightfully so) Claudia Gray, Leia: Princess of Alderaan is a Young Adult novel that’s part of the “Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi” initiative, taking place a couple years before A New Hope. It should come as no surprise I’m highly recommending another Gray novel, as she crafts a compelling tale of Leia’s journey into a larger world, the growing rebellion, and how it effects her and her family as the dangers of action and inaction become more real for all of them. Come for The Last Jedi tidbits, stay for the enthralling character piece. Continue reading “Canon Young Adult Novel Review: Leia: Princess of Alderaan”
