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.
