Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Captain Phasma #3

This review of Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi — Captain Phasma #3 contains minor spoilers.

If ever there was any doubt as to Captain Phasma’s lack of self doubt, let the penultimate issue of this mini series stand as the crucible of her iron will.

Captain Phasma is brutal, conniving and utterly devoid of sentimentality and the lengths to which she’ll go to ensure her dominance and success truly knows no end.

Such is the path this phantom of Parnassos treads and it’s clear of conscience, remorse or regret.

Writer Kelly Thompson is adding more and more to the legend that is Phasma, building on what we already learned from Delilah S. Dawson’s portrait in the Phasma novel. While readers of that book will find a reference or two to Phasma’s past in the comic, it’s not needed.

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.

Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Captain Phasma #1

This review of Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Captain Phasma #1 contains minor spoilers.

It’s been a banner week for Captain Phasma: A new novel from Delilah S. Dawson and the first issue of a four-issue mini series from Kelly Thompson.

Not a bad way to begin the hype cycle for Lucasfilm’s upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Both books provide a lot more depth into the character herself, something sorely lacking since her 2015 debut in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It was worth the wait, particularly with the Captain Phasma comic book.
