IDW Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars Adventures #2

This review of Star Wars Adventures #2 contains minor spoilers.

There’s no sophomore slump for IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures #2.

In fact, the second outing in two weeks for the new series is just as good as the debut issue, proving without doubt that an all-ages Star Wars comic is not just viable, but vivacious.

Issue two, like the first, sports a main story and a backup tale from Wild Space. Both are equally charming, splendidly paced and adroitly written and illustrated.

This issue also marks a milestone, too, with artist Elsa Charretier making her comics writing debut, co-scripting the Tales From Wild Space backup “The Flat Mountain of Yavin” with Pierrick Colinet.

Ruminations: Rogue One Changes Everything

It started with the Death Star, with the jolt that went through me the first time I saw it over the horizon of the then still unfamiliar Scarif. I couldn’t quite push the image from my mind. Immediately, I knew that things would shift in the Star Wars galaxy with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; I didn’t yet know that for me, the shift would be drastic.

Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Doctor Aphra #12

This review of Doctor Aphra #12 contains minor spoilers.

It’s no secret Dr. Chelli Aphra has a keen mind, sharp reflexes and a perniciously clever way of thwarting imminent demise with absolutely no concern for anyone who may, or may not, be in the way.

In fact, writer Kieron Gillen has added more depth to Aphra throughout the penultimate chapter of “The Enormous Profit” storyline in the monthly series.
