    It’s weird to think that, when it started, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” ranked among my most disappointing Marvel-Star-Wars-comics, both ongoing and mini. Early on in its run, writer Charles Soule and artist Phil Noto seemed way too confined by their story’s placement in the broader Star Wars timeline, to the point that the first two arcs felt stifled, telling stories that-while entertaining enough-didn’t feel like they were doing much more than treading water until the REAL story could start. As so It’s weird to think that, when it started, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” ranked among my most disappointing Marvel-Star-Wars-comics, both ongoing and mini. Early on in its run, writer Charles Soule and artist Phil Noto seemed way too confined by their story’s placement in the broader Star Wars timeline, to the point that the first two arcs felt stifled, telling stories that-while entertaining enough-didn’t feel like they were doing much more than treading water until the REAL story could start. As someone who was – and frankly, still is – craving more content in the post-Return-of-the-Jedi, pre-The-Force-Awakens-era, to have something so close to what I want fall JUST short of my hopes for it was frustrating, to say the least.And then something funny happened: over the course of its second volume, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” improved. Like, a lot. Storylines became less focused on leading up to “The Force Awakens,” characters that we’d only been allowed to know tangentially in the first two arcs started to become fleshed out, and Soule’s overall pacing seemed to sharpen. By the end of Volume 2, “Poe Dameron” had slowly but surely gone from being among my least anticipated “Star Wars” comics each month to becoming easily my most anticipated. And Volume 3? It’s the best story yet.Artist Angel Unzueta takes over art-duties this volume, and while there’s definitely an adjustment period required in transitioning from Noto’s rougher, sandier look to Unzueta’s more fluid style, I’d argue that Unzueta’s technique fits the story and characters even better than Noto: whether it’s depicting epic space battles or just capturing the physical likeness of the characters, there’s just something about Unzueta’s art that feels perfectly “Star Wars.”It also doesn’t hurt that we’re now three volumes into the series, which means that Soule is at a point with these characters that he’s able to tell stories with Black Squadron that, just by virtue of our increased familiarity with them, feel weightier and more emotionally involved than they might have if they’d taken place during the first volume. Like a fine wine, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” is series that has only improved with age. Here’s to Volume 4.

    Angel Unzueta steps in as the artist and his character likenesses are fantastic. He really captures the look and feel of the movies. I didn't find the stories here quite as gripping, but I'm loving (even if it's not that much) seeing what was happening in the lead up to Force Awakens. The movies have left this 30+ year gaping hole and seem to have no desire to explain what happened to the New Republic and the rise of the First Order. So I'm glad to be getting some of that information. While I fe Angel Unzueta steps in as the artist and his character likenesses are fantastic. He really captures the look and feel of the movies.

    The third volume of the Poe Dameron series is not as good as the previous book, but it's still not as terrible as almost every other current Star Wars graphic novel series. The problem with this story is a problem with the growing weight of the Star Wars franchise itself: too much sameness. Every new character is starting to feel like nothing more than some minor variation on a previous character. This mythology needs something new (and, unfortunately, it doesn't need the ways that The Last Jedi The third volume of the Poe Dameron series is not as good as the previous book, but it's still not as terrible as almost every other current Star Wars graphic novel series. The problem with this story is a problem with the growing weight of the Star Wars franchise itself: too much sameness. Every new character is starting to feel like nothing more than some minor variation on a previous character. This mythology needs something new (and, unfortunately, it doesn't need the ways that The Last Jedi thought it was new).Probably related to this problem, I can't clearly remember anything from the previous volumes. I vaguely remember Terex, but he also feels like a bad guy in the Vader series. Or am I misremembering? Who knows. It barely matters. Poe and his friends fly around on missions and shoot stuff and they always win. More troubling is the fact that I have no idea who the "legend" is in the title, "Legend Lost."General Organa doesn't feel like a character who has lived through a rebellion already. Is it really a new concept to her that the Resistance needs to show the galaxy its personality, and also show how evil the First Order is? Whatever the case, we now know from The Last Jedi that everyone in the galaxy couldn't care less about the Resistance, which takes the urgency out of a lot of this story. Angel Unzueta's art for Leia looks pretty good, though, if a bit repetitive. Few artists have been able to make Leia look anything like herself in graphic novel form.If this book weren't free from the Public Library, and if it took more than 45 minutes to read, I'd be grumpy. But as it is, it's an okay diversion, though not recommended to anyone except my fellow obsessive-compulsive Star Wars readers.

    3rd in the series, this follows Poe's missions with Black Squadron. I liked all the new aliens and questionable allies in this book, but for some reason the missions just felt flat to me. Terex, the previous bad guy, is not really a big part in this. When you hope he does something at the end it is really a small thing. The bad lady in this, you learn her name way later, it was like they needed a bad guy but just threw her in there. Why not Phasma?

    Oh boy, what a disappointment. The first two Poe Dameron comic collections were excellent in every way, this one was not. It seemed rushed. The art was awkward, as if they simply took screen shots of the main characters and used cartooning-software to turn them into comic book style. There were multiple mistakes drawn in (for example, in two different frames Poe's X-wing was the standard blue and silver rather than his black and orange).

    THE ART STYLE IS SO HIDEOUS, THIS DOES NOT DO JUSTICE FOR OSCAR ISAACS BEAUTIFUL FACE. That aside, I loved the Poe and Leia stuff in this, and the fact that Poe has become so infamous makes the scene in The Force Awakens when Kylo interrogates him all that more intense and also hilarious. Yet again Poe manages to waltz out of another First Order holding cell, truly that boy is blessed by the force.

    3.5 stars. Enjoyable, and we get to see individual members of Black Squadron being more than just helmets in cockpits. The story picks up shortly after the end of the previous volume; the squadron must deal with the fallout from their last mission, while Leia must deal with more mundane and vital matters of keeping the Resistance fuelled and fed.

    Happy New Year! Lets start off the 2018 review year on a positive note with volume 3 of Marvel's Poe Dameron series, written by Charles Soule.Looking back, the Poe Dameron series until this point, as a whole it has not been the best effort in the canon comics. While I enjoyed the first volume, "Black Squadron" enough to give it a 4 star rating, it is more in the 3.5 range due to its thin story and eh artwork. Despite having a great time with the characters and dialogue, 4 stars may have been too Happy New Year! Lets start off the 2018 review year on a positive note with volume 3 of Marvel's Poe Dameron series, written by Charles Soule.Looking back, the Poe Dameron series until this point, as a whole it has not been the best effort in the canon comics. While I enjoyed the first volume, "Black Squadron" enough to give it a 4 star rating, it is more in the 3.5 range due to its thin story and eh artwork. Despite having a great time with the characters and dialogue, 4 stars may have been too high. The second volume, "The Gathering Storm" was aggressively mediocre. I'm one of those more forgiving reviewers so I gave it a 3 stars, even though its more like a 2.5. Aside from the new backstory and development of the series' primary antagonist Agent Terrex, the second volume had nothing to offer- with a boring story, the same eh artwork, and almost nothing with the pilots (which is a big reason why I enjoyed the first volume). Poe Dameron's character came off as very flat and dull, and I found Gathering Storm to be a big slog. So going into volume 3, I didn't expect that much. However, I was pleasantly surprised with what I got: a vast improvement over what has come before. Everything that made the first volume work is here, plus more. Most of what didn't work in the 2nd volume is either gone or fixed to my liking. If Legend Lost doesn't make my top 5 or top 10 best TPB story arcs in the star wars canon, it would definitely be an honorable mention. While this trade paperback also includes the stand alone 7th issue of Poe Dameron, I'm skipping talking about that one because I already reviewed it separately. I'll be focusing on issues 14-19 here. THE STORY: The resistance has taken a hit: veteran pilot L'ulo L'ampar, a Duros who flew an A-wing for Black Squadron, has been killed. However, there isn't much time to mourn his death: the the resistance continues to face all sorts of problems, be it dwindling resources or the looming villainy of the First Order. Much like the first volume, Legend Lost is actually a compilation of two story arcs: the first three issues are for Legend Lost, and the second three issues are for another story arc called "War Stories".The plot concerns three missions: one, to recover a fuel carrier from one of the only contacts the resistance has left. "Legend Lost" covers this one.The second is to get some footage that puts dirt on the First Order to rally support for the Resistance. The third involves tracking down the traitorous Oddy Muva. These two are covered in "War Stories"All three missions tie in nicely together to provide a fun, action packed Resistance vs. First Order romp that honestly, this series should have focused on from the start. THE BAD: If there is any significant problem with this comic, it is that it has deviated from the primary story that the first volume established: finding Lor San Tekka. The first volume intended to set up the opening scene in The Force Awakens, and just like Gathering Storm, Legend Lost goes on side adventures that don't relate to finding him. While I'm actually happy that this volume did something more interesting, it will probably be an issue for some because it seems like another pointless detour. For me, I think that seeing the early skirmishes between the resistance and the first order is more interesting and still does a decent job building up to the pivotal moments from The Force Awakens that ignite the greater conflict.The only other problem I can think of is that the efforts by this volume to make us feel for the loss of L'ulo feels very forced. L'ulo was a character ]introduced in Greg Rucka's Shattered Empire, which came out in TPB well before the Poe Dameron comic series even started. While it is a nice connective nod to previous works to see L'ulo get a bigger role in this series, the character hasn't been developed enough in the current canon for me to feel bad for him. While the funeral at the beginning was fine and the characters' sadness in-story was convincing, the constant reminders throughout the comic about L'ulo's passing just felt like it was trying too hard to get pixar-style tears out of its readers. THE GOOD: I've been up and down on the Poe Dameron series so far, but as of this volume, I'm on the up side. The first and biggest improvement this comic has made is the artwork. Wow, does it look so much better than it used too. Bringing back Angel Unzueta from issue #7 was a perfect idea, and I don't see why they didn't do it sooner. While the artwork in the previous volumes wasn't terrible, I was never a big fan of Phil Noto's style. Unzueta makes everything better here in terms of visuals, from the much more expressive characters to the more exciting action. Hopefully Unzueta gets to stay on board for the 4th volume as well. The villains were pretty well done here. Agent Terrex continues to be developed in an interesting way, while newcomer Commander Malaurus captures that same mix of fun and intimidating that Terrex did when we first met him. I also think that the writing did a good job making the villains pretty effective and threatening. All to often in these comics the empire comes off as a bunch of bumbling idiots and not that threatening, even in the phenomenal Lando series. Here though, Soule manages to make the first order a fantastic threat: the heroes are not just able to wade into massively outnumbered odds and come out unscathed. Their skills are constantly tested, and whatever victories they achieve come only after what feels like a taxing challenge or a significant cost. The characters are also excellent. Poe Dameron's characterization returns to form- gone is the blandjob from Gathering Storm, and back in its place is the charming badass from Black Squadron- just how he should be. If Black Squadron's Poe is a perfect fit with what he was like in Force Awakens, Legend Lost's Poe Dameron perfectly captures what Poe was like in TFA, but some of the more complex well-roundedness that was offered by The Last Jedi is present too. Snap Wexley and Kare Kun continue to be a great pair of characters, but I was impressed by how well Jess Pava was developed. We get some welcome backstory on her, but the presentation was surprisingly effective: instead of the usual expository dialogue that is usually used in comics I have read, with soule instead relying on some impressive visual storytelling. Suralinda Javos, introduced in Poe Dameron #7, gets a big presence in this volume, and I liked it alot. While I enjoyed Javos enough from her introduction in the one-shot issue 7, her character is effectively developed and very fun in this volume. She's clever, unpredictable, and likeable all at the same time. I found her easy to root for the entire time, and she's right up there with Terrex and Dr. Aphra as some of the best new characters the comics have introduced. Even Oddy Muva, who's character arc I though was pretty badly done in Gathering Storm, is handled quite well in Legend Lost. I found his motivations much clearer, and as a whole I found the character quite a bit more sympathetic and interesting. All of the character work so great because of the wonderful dialogue. Charles Soule has created two miniseries in the canon and is currently working on two on going star wars comics right now, and I'm totally fine with it. Even if his stories don't always hit the mark, his dialogue for the most part, is consistently quite good. It's one of the reasons I found Lando to be so phenomenal, its one of the redeeming qualities of Obi-wan and Anakin, and its a big reason why I enjoyed Black Squadron as much as I did. While I haven't read his Darth Vader run yet, Legend Lost is easily among the good.THE CONCLUSION: A very nice surprise to start off the new year, Legend Lost is the best I have read from Soule since Lando. The story is enjoyable, the characters are fantastic, the dialogue is fun, and the artwork is beautiful to look at. From what I hear, the next volume brings the focus back on finding Lor San Tekka, and I can't be more excited. While the previous two story arcs I still have problems with, this one won me over. For those that miss the X-wing series from legends, I think this volume has cemented the Poe Dameron Comic series as a solid canon alternative. Looks like the third time's a charm.

Suralinda will make another appearance, but there are things that happened at the end of the last issue that are important, that make this volume start with some serious weight and I’m not sure if I like her stealing that spotlight. However you’re talking to the woman who has a hard time imagining rereading Star Wars and Star Wars: Darth Vader without them together in publication order. There is a funeral, and I think Poe’s talk really emphasizes just how much the rebellion truly is his family. Leia calls Poe a pet name and goodness I love their relationship.It’s not just their relationship that I like, but also all of the characterization of Poe. Poe as a reluctant leader for instance. I also like the insight into the status of the rebellion. Struggling with supplies makes sense, but it’s not something that blockbuster movies usually have time to cover. Conflicts that harken back to certain 90’s action movies. Hilarious probabilities, cheek pinching. Sure we start this collection with a funeral but it definitely has some good laughs including “The Great Destroyer”.Suralinda reappears in the last two issues and when she said that she would do anything as part of the resistance she meant it. I like the idea that they have to try to win public opinion. If everyone thought they were right, well it wouldn’t be a resistance. Commander Malarus is terrifying on so many levels to me. Ben is usually the one who gets excited about spotting specific types of ships but I’ll admit I got excited to see a Y-wing in the resistance. They talk about the two sides of the story here, and I think it is interesting because there are the two sides of the war, but there are also the two sides of Oddy’s story.When I think about the Poe Dameron series I struggle to remember sequence or individual issues because I feel like the story is so cohesive.Original Review on my Website

En la segunda mitad vemos la importancia de la Nueva República ante la primera órden, vemos la importancia de las historias, y aprovechamos para ver un poco más del contexto de los demás miembros del escuadrón negro. Al fin Soule se anima a explorar a los personajes de soporte de manera más profunda. Gran utilización del personaje de la reportera que introducen en el número 7 para liderar la segunda mitad de esta historia. Este volumen en general es más emotivo que los anteriores, podemos ver muchos temas sobre la guerra y como afectan a los distintos personajes.Definitivamente la serie de Poe es de lo mejor que se publica de SW actualmente.

Where action once took the lead, dialogue is now the primary focus. Too many pages feature Poe and General Organa standing around discussing fuel reserves and the nature of rebellion. I get that Poe needs to be fleshed out as a character (for real, what's his backstory?) but giving him an entire issue to stare soulfully out windows is not the way to do it.The art in this volume is also a bit unsettling, moving too close to uncanny valley territory. The occasional Phil Noto covers serve as a reminder of how much better things could be.Still, it's Poe Dameron and Black Squadron. Even if the adventures are a little lackluster, they're more enjoyable than half the Marvel/DC comics out there. I didn't come out of this volume dissatisfied - I was just less satisfied than I could have been.

Of course, being a journalist, she is always fishing for information and a big story, whether the First order or the Resistance is the source. When a sneaky journalism mission ends up showing the darker side of news media, the Resistance gains a new member. While this issue doesn't really fit with the earlier volumes, it works in this volume since Suralinda Javos becomes a highlighted secondary character in the forthcoming issues. Issues 14-19 deal with Poe and Black Squadrons quest to find Oddy Muva, a once member of Black Squadron who betrayed his men to keep his wife safe. Now Black Squadron aims to find him before the First Order does. Meanwhile, Terex has been taken by Phasma who implants a mind control device on his head to have him obey any orders and skiff through any information he has learned that he can share about the Resistance to the First Order. While half of Black Squadron aims to find Oddy, the other half, taking Suralinda the journalist along, aim to get footage on how the First Order treats the beings of new planets they aim to conquer. With such footage, the Resistance can spark a new hope (eyyy) in the citizens of the galaxy.Once again, beautiful art, as always. I felt that the story was crafted even better than the first two volumes. The story was more centered on the needs of the Resistance, through the eyes of Poe and Black Squadron of course, which was an interesting diversion from the first two story arcs. We get to know a bit more about the individuals of Black Squadron, adding more depth to the characters, as well as being introduced to Suralinda, a prospective potential secondary character of some import in the future. Overall, an excellent edition to the Poe Dameron comics.

There's some strong action sequences, decent character development, thrilling escapes (especially the second half), and just about everyone in Black Squadron gets a moment to shine. This volume stepped even closer to living up to the Rogue Squadron series.

    At first, when I opened up this graphic novel, I was really disappointed. I missed Phil Noto's artwork. I think his work is so painterly and the colours are so so incredible and he has a touch all his own. But I love Unzueta's artwork too -- the lighting is great and the texture they're able to bring to the finished panels really adds a lot. I really enjoyed the story for this comic book and very much enjoyed the new character who was introduced.

I won't say much, because I don't want to spoil anything, but I love the type of character she is. There was also a lot of backstory for one of the other characters of the Black Squadron, which I loved and wanted more of. I love Poe. He's a lucky pilot.

    A refreshing surprise from the Poe Dameron series. I haven't been a fan of the previous titles but volume 3 was a fast-paced and dark take on a lovable character. Agent Terex is faced off against Phasma for an uncomfortable conclusion to his arc. Poe and the rest of Black Squadron are hurting from the loss of one their own, L'ulo and the betrayal of a friend. The flight to find Oddy gets messy and sad and just...good! It was such a well-written adventure! I'm only giving it three stars as a pers A refreshing surprise from the Poe Dameron series.

    This volume has some great writing. Javos is an interesting character with an initially complex motivation. Her double bluff in the first issue (#7) had me hooked. Paralleling Dameron and Terex's newfound roles in their respective organisations was a narrative highlight. The mission to get fuel adequately sets up the Resistance's desperation while further developing Poe status as pilot extraordinaire. The Oddy Muva plot line is also rapped up nicely.

It's unfortunate that the First Order is only portrayed as relentlessly evil and mildly incompetent.Overall a strong book, but Snap Wexely portrayed by JJ Abrams fat friend is still too frikin' annoying.

    Bittersweet Mission for Black SquadronThis is another exciting chapter in the Poe Dameron series that keeps getting better and better. After rescuing the much needed fuel for the Alliance, Black Squadron is split into two teams whose missions manage to collide. I really enjoy how they function as a unit, supporting each other, along with the Amazing BB8. This edition ended too soon for me. It was also sad to see the squad lose another member who was thought to be a traitor, but was protecting hi Bittersweet Mission for Black SquadronThis is another exciting chapter in the Poe Dameron series that keeps getting better and better.

It was also sad to see the squad lose another member who was thought to be a traitor, but was protecting his family. A great storyline with action and humor. The artwork is beautiful as well. Can't wait for the final compilation.

    Legend Lost ended up being quite a big leap in both the quality and quantity of the Poe Dameron series. Though Black Squadron wasn't necessarily a horrible first entry (even if it had it's problems) and The Gathering Storm definitely did a lot to try and right the wrongs of the previous collection, I think, after close to about 20 issues, Soule and co. have finally settled into a groove and evolved Poe's storyline from something on the fringes of Star Wars into something that could, if they keep Legend Lost ended up being quite a big leap in both the quality and quantity of the Poe Dameron series.

    New character Suralinda Javos joins the book as a reporter who picks the Resistance after seeing how horrible the First Order is. She is an old friend of Poe's and helps them to make pro-Resistance propaganda. Agent Terex gets a cranial control module implant from Phasma to help him stay on course and in line. A few issues surrounding an action packed story about a fuel tanker, the evils of new First Order Commander Malarus, and a rescue/capture/heroic-redeeming tale about Oddy Muva, and you hav New character Suralinda Javos joins the book as a reporter who picks the Resistance after seeing how horrible the First Order is.

    A good new entry in this very entertaining Star Wars comic. Poe is great as always with his cool attitude and witty dialogue. Terex didnt get to shine as he did in the previous issues (I know thats the point) but I really hope to see the old Terex break out and go out as a real antagonist to Poe. I like the journalist in this one, certainly something that Star Wars doesnt touch very much on. All in all, another good comic with the Adventures of Poe Dameron. I think the next one is the last one, A good new entry in this very entertaining Star Wars comic. Poe is great as always with his cool attitude and witty dialogue.
