Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars: Poe Dameron 18

This review of Star Wars: Poe Dameron #18 contains minor spoilers.

Writer Charles Soule has never shyed away from incorporating contemporary events into his comics tales. It’s why Poe Dameron #18 has a particular resonance about the importance of information as rallying point and commodity.

The latest issue of Marvel’s third Star Wars monthly series is jarring, illuminating and, above all, mindful, given the precarious nature of a galaxy that’s caught in a standoff by the Resistance and an ever-growing and seemingly morality free First Order.

Written by Soule, illustrated Angel Unzueta, colored by Arif Prianto, lettered by VC’s Joe Caramagna, the second part of the “War Stories” arc finds Black Squadron divided in duties, with Jess, Kare and Suralinda attempting to expose the ruthlessness of a First Order detachment on a world rich with thorilide deposits.

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

Now that I have the attention of the Star Wars shippers out there…!

August, 2017 marked the nine-year anniversary of the theatrical premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

I pined for the characters, the stories, and just the idea of being able to look forward to each passing week, so I could fill the Star Wars need in my life. I listened to the beautifully compelling musical works of Kevin Kiner, reliving the emotional journey of some of the characters and pivotal scenes.

Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars 34

This review of Star Wars #34 contains minor spoilers.

There’s a certain satisfaction when you come across a neatly contained one-issue story in comic books. Star Wars #34 is exactly that, given it’s briskly paced, energetically illustrated and rollicking from start to finish.

This issue, written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by Salvador Larroca, with colors by Edgar Delgado and letters by VC’s Clayton Cowles, focuses on Lando Calrissian and Capt. Sana Starros.

It is, to be blunt, pure joy to read, from the cover by Mike Mayhew to the final page with the surprising reveal, setting the stage for issue #35.
