Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Poe Dameron #22

Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Poe Dameron #22

This review of Poe Dameron #22 contains minor spoilers.

It’s not the Resistance. It’s Organa’s 8.

The effort to secure Lor San Tekka’s freedom from Baron Maccon reaches a fever pitch in the pages of Poe Dameron #22, in an energetic tale that offers readers a primer on how to pull off a heist AND how to try and save the day, too.

Unless of course there’s a wild card in the mix by the name of Terex.

The latest issue of Star Wars: Poe Dameron is a quixotic tale of deception, intrigue and strategy, as well as a master class in how even the best plans are nothing to the whim of uncertainty and fate.

Writer Charles Soule, artist Angel Unzueta, colorist arif Prianto, letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna and editors Heather Antos and Jordan D. White have turned part III of the “Legend Found” into something akin to cinematic adventure.

From Phil Noto’s frenetic cover to the final page, this is a story that features numerous twists and turns — some obvious and some alarmingly unexpected. It’s a thrill ride, this one, and we’re still not sure how this going to end, in some cases, for some characters.

In short, it’s a splendid middle act and sets the stage for a dynamic show down. Which is just what I expect when reading Poe Dameron.

Poe Dameron #22 is in comic shops now, selling for $3.99, and on Comixology.
