IDW Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars Adventures #3

This review of Star Wars Adventures #3 contains minor spoilers.

With the third issue, IDW Publishing has cemented Star Wars Adventures as true all-ages title.

There’s great storytelling and visuals in this issue with the main feature a kid-friendly romp focused on The Force Awaken’s Finn and his effort to curtail a purple pest from planetside that caused my kids — and myself — to laugh aloud.

For adults? Plenty of subtle nods to the relationship dynamic between Kylo Ren, Gen. Hux and Capt. Phasma, too.

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

On my 46th birthday (July 16), I was reduced to my 10-year-old self. I laughed, jumped for joy, squeed more than a few times, and quite literally performed at least one happy dance. My eyes were a little brighter, and my steps a little lighter. All because of Star Wars.

And that’s a good thing…a VERY good thing!

When it comes to Star Wars, I’m a big kid at heart anyway, as I’m most (or all) of you reading this right now can relate. Overall, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan, but with all of the news that came out of Star Wars Celebration Europe (SWCE) over the last few days, my kid-o-meter has flown off the charts!
