This review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Graphic Novel Adaptation contains minor spoilers.
Nearly two years since it’s cinematic release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains a riveting, albeit familiar, tale that has propelled the Skywalker family saga ever forward.
The film is a lightning rod but regardless of one’s opinion, it did kickstart Star Wars into a new dawn and ensured that the Saga remains just as vital and enthralling as it did with the release of A New Hope in 1977. Still, it’s a story that has run its course.
Which is why it was puzzling, at first, when IDW Publishing and Lucasfilm announced plans for another adaptation of the movie (the first being Marvel’s six-issue 2016 mini series that fell short), this time as a graphic novel done in the so-called Disney animation style.
I was hesitant. I was lukewarm to the notion. I needn’t have been either.
