IDW Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars Adventures #6

This review of Star Wars Adventures #6 contains minor spoilers.

Star Wars Adventures #6 is simply grand storytelling on an even grander, yet wholly relatable scale. It only gets better from the first page all the way to the end, with both the main story and backup delivering plenty of memorable adventures, art that pops and a lesson in being true to yourself while allowing what’s best about those with whom you surround yourself to make you a better person in every way.

For fans of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the main feature “Rose Knows” — written by Delilah S. Dawson, illustrated by Derek Charm and lettered by Tom B. Long — is sure to please, focusing as it does on Rose Tico and featuring plenty of Poe Dameron, a dash of Fossil from Cobalt Squadron and, naturally, Paige Tico, too.

What the editorial team promises — and delivers on — is a fast-paced tale with each of the characters, no matter minor or major, coming together to work as a team to help an ailing compadre and, ultimately, to avoid a tragedy.

Melinda’s Brew: I Give You The One & Only, The Enchanting BB-8

Melinda's Brew

What is white and orange with a touch of silver and black, rather roly-poly, and resembles a figure 8? [Like you need me to answer that question for you. 😉 ] That just happens to be the character who stole the show when The Force Awakens hit movie screens a couple of years ago – BB-8, who happens to be my favorite character from the new trilogy of Star Wars films. Off and on over the past year and a half, I’ve been naming my favorite characters from TFA and explaining why they have struck a chord with me, and now that the next installment is set to hit theaters in a mere two weeks [can you feel the electric excitement coursing through the air? I can!], it is only fitting that I reveal who caught my eye and touched my heart most of all.

Comics With Kenobi #35

It’s autumn up here in our hemisphere.

While leaves are falling, and the countdown clock is flipping closer and closer to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’re slating our Star Wars thirst with a bevy of Star Wars comics from Marvel and IDW Publishing, as well as a couple of young upstarts from down in central Florida, too.

September’s comics ran the gamut from Prequel Trilogy-era events in the Clone Wars, to Original Trilogy-era nefariousness to Sequel Trilogy-era malfeasance.

There was also a Dickensian-inspired Sithmas carol that brought us a bunch of Darths, including Bane, Malgus and Vader.
