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.

IDW Star Wars Comics Reviews: The Force Awakens Graphic Novel Adaptation

This review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Graphic Novel Adaptation contains minor spoilers.
