[easyazon_link identifier=”B01BETI9S0″ locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]Poe Dameron [/easyazon_link](2016-) #1

AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES SPINNING OUT OF STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS! Poe Dameron, former Republic flyer turned Resistance fighter, is the best pilot in the galaxy. Hand-picked for the resistance by General Leia Organa to lead a squadron on a top secret and vital mission…Poe sets off investigating sites of historical importance to the Force. Revealing backstory leading directly into the holidays’ greatest adventure, follow Poe and his X-Wing squadron on covert missions against the First Order.


Hmmmm! I’m really caught on the fence with this one – and this series as a whole. On the one side, me, with many others I expect were interested in this new character from [easyazon_link identifier=”B019FFA2AI” locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]The Force Awakens [/easyazon_link] and would like to find out more, but on the other hand, I feel as if this is quite a bland introduction to the character. Now, I’m hoping that this is going to be building onto greater things. As a comparison to the ‘old’ expanded universe of Star Wars, Wedge Antillies started off as a bland character, but he was built into an interesting one – now the issue with that was that he was originally written as a supporting character, then he was one of many in the [easyazon_link identifier=”B002SQ9C2Q” locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]X-Wing series[/easyazon_link]. Hopefully this is what this series can be – like the [easyazon_link identifier=”0785192557″ locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]Darth Vader[/easyazon_link] series and perhaps less of the [easyazon_link identifier=”0785193197″ locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]Lando[/easyazon_link] series. by working around the supporting cast – of whom we have a lot to learn about, we may have Poe growing on us!

The issue in itself isn’t bad, we get the set up to the mission from [easyazon_link identifier=”0785193170″ locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]Princess Leia[/easyazon_link] and a look at the team that Poe gets together. We get some small chit-chat between them to get an idea about them too! Poe is searching for someone (from Episode VII) and we get a closer look into how long and difficult that mission is to be. We also get an interesting opinion on [easyazon_link identifier=”B01BKT8KEW” locale=”UK” tag=”3milyea-21″]the First Order[/easyazon_link] – one which may come back to bite Poe!
