Poe Dameron #20 begins the “Legend Found,” arc, where Poe and the rest of Black Squadron are tasked with rescuing a captured Lor San Tekka, bringing the series back to its roots nearly a year and a half later. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #20”

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #19

Poe Dameron #19

– Spoiler Review –

Poe Dameron #19 delivers quite the poignant, exciting end to the “War Stories” arc, wrapping up the pursuit of ex-Black Squadron member Oddy Muva and providing the first inklings of Terex’s resurgence. All in all, one of the series’ best issues! Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #19”

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #18

Poe Dameron #18

– Spoiler Review –

The boys of Black Squadron on the hunt for a traitor, the gals on the hunt for a story to gain the Resistance some new backers; nothing can go wrong with a Squadron split, right? Thankfully, everything does go wrong and that’s why we tune into Poe Dameron every issue, and #18 is no different. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #18”

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #17

Poe Dameron #17

– Spoiler Review –

Poe Dameron #17 starts a new arc, “War Stories,” which brings back one of my favorite new comic characters of 2016, Suralinda Javos, while also putting the ladies of Black Squadron front and center and the search for the “traitor” Oddy Muva heats back up. Sure, there’s plenty of set-up,  but it’s entertaining as you’ve come to expect this series to be. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #17”

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #16

Poe Dameron #16

– Spoiler Review –

After an Annual interlude, we’re back to Speed in Space with Poe Dameron #16, which brings this particular space bus to a stop in all sorts of exciting ways, while allowing other members of Black Squadron to get a pleasant share of the spotlight. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #16”

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #15

Poe Dameron #15

– Spoiler Review –

As the fallout from the previous arc settled in the previous issue, Poe Dameron #15, aka Space Speed, gets the series right back to its fun, adventurous roots that have quickly placed it as this canon’s (early) Rogue Squadron supplement. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #15”

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #14

Poe Dameron #14

– Spoiler Review –

As the dust settles from the events of the previous 13 issues, Poe Dameron #14 slows things way down to deal with the fallout of the last arc’s finale, as the Resistance honors a fallen member of Black Squadron which also manages to serve up a nice goodbye for Carrie Fisher (that’s possibly changed my opinion about Leia’s role going forward in the films), while Poe and Terex learn valuable lessons about their role in their respective fights (from the powerful women in their lives)…with varying outcomes for both.

Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #7

Poe Dameron #7

– Spoiler Review –

Poe takes a brief break from looking for Lor San Tekka and meets up with an old friend, now a reporter, with urgent news. Of course things get out of hand quickly, but that’s just the type of situation Poe seems to enjoy the most. Charles Soule continues as series writer, telling a rollicking adventure worthy of a few extra pages, while Angel Unzueta (artist) and Frank D’armata (colorist) mostly expertly step-in for Phil Noto in Poe Dameron #7, “The Gathering Storm.” Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #7”

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars Annual #1

Star Wars Annual #1

Spoiler Review –

The Star Wars on-going series gets its first Annual issue, which breaks off from the current on-going story (we’re in the middle of the crossover event Vader Down as of this writing) and instead focuses on a rebel spy, Eneb Ray, who’s been undercover in the Imperial government for years. When a chance at killing the Emperor appears, will Eneb risk everything he and other Rebellion spies on Coruscant have worked for all these years? Strong writing and a few twists keep the tale exciting, but with a well-wrapped up story, it doesn’t really leave one wanting more. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Star Wars Annual #1”

Shattered Empire #3

Spoiler Review –

Shattered Empire #3 is quite the exhilarating ride thanks to an epic battle above Naboo where it becomes clear the planet was lucky to have three badass lady pilots on the ground when the Empire attacked. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Shattered Empire #3”
