IDW Star Wars Comics Review: Star Wars Adventures #6

This review of Star Wars Adventures #6 contains minor spoilers.

Star Wars Adventures #6 is simply grand storytelling on an even grander, yet wholly relatable scale. It only gets better from the first page all the way to the end, with both the main story and backup delivering plenty of memorable adventures, art that pops and a lesson in being true to yourself while allowing what’s best about those with whom you surround yourself to make you a better person in every way.

For fans of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the main feature “Rose Knows” — written by Delilah S. Dawson, illustrated by Derek Charm and lettered by Tom B. Long — is sure to please, focusing as it does on Rose Tico and featuring plenty of Poe Dameron, a dash of Fossil from Cobalt Squadron and, naturally, Paige Tico, too.

What the editorial team promises — and delivers on — is a fast-paced tale with each of the characters, no matter minor or major, coming together to work as a team to help an ailing compadre and, ultimately, to avoid a tragedy.

You wondered, aloud even: “Where’s the discussion about IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures?”

It’s right here!

We were intrigued when IDW, in announcing the new series earlier this year, noted that its stories were aimed at younglings and younglings at heart. After two issues, it’s obvious there’s no better way to explain the delightfully scripted and superbly illustrated stories.

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.
