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”

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.

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.

Poe Dameron #13

– Spoiler Review –

Was there ever any doubt Charles Soule and Phil Noto could deliver a fantastic finale to Marvel’s most action-packed and adventurous series? Poe Dameron #13 not only wraps up its longest arc to date, “The Gathering Storm,” but it also deals with several story threads that have been around since the beginning, making this a well-rounded, action-packed, and even emotional finale for its first leg. Oh, and a certain homicidal droid named Mister Bones makes a scene-stealing appearance…what more could you ask for? Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Poe Dameron #13”
