Star Wars Review

    While it didn’t start off as strong as some of Marvel’s other “Star Wars” series, I’m loathe to think of another comic series that improved quite as much as Charles Soule’s “Poe Dameron” did over the course of its 31 issues. This final arc, which takes place concurrently with, and even slightly post-, “The Last Jedi,” is a blast, littered with cool Easter eggs, inventive action pieces, and humor that’s actually funny, while also providing a genuinely satisfying close to Poe Dameron’s arc as a ch While it didn’t start off as strong as some of Marvel’s other “Star Wars” series, I’m loathe to think of another comic series that improved quite as much as Charles Soule’s “Poe Dameron” did over the course of its 31 issues.

All in all, I’m sad to see this series go.

    The first four volumes of this series (as much as I remember of them, which isn't very much) built a steady story of Black Squadron and Poe Dameron's search for Lor San Tekka. What was finally revealed about Lor San Tekka was not especially enlightening, and now this final volume skips all over the sequel trilogy timeline. It starts as a frame story with Poe, Rey, and Finn on the Falcon just after The Last Jedi.

What was finally revealed about Lor San Tekka was not especially enlightening, and now this final volume skips all over the sequel trilogy timeline. It starts as a frame story with Poe, Rey, and Finn on the Falcon just after The Last Jedi. That's like a Jeopardy answer where the question is "Who are three Star Wars characters I'm not very interested in?" Some parts of Episodes 7 and 8 are fleshed out from different perspectives, but a lot of it feels like writers scrambling to invent reasons why the movies had plot holes—questions such as "If there's a Resistance bomber fleet, why wasn't it used at Starkiller Base?" and "Why did the other X-wing pilots in Black Squadron disappear in the few minutes between the end of Episode 7 and the beginning of Episode 8?" It's hard not to think that it would be better just to make movies that make sense on their own right from the start.This series about Poe Dameron had some really great, Star Wars-y moments, but the beginning and the ending were, for me, lackluster. It's hard to say how much the final volume could be improved if Snap Wexley didn't call his wife "babe," but I suspect it's quite a lot.

    I'm going to miss this graphic novel series - though as we have caught up with the released films I can definitely understand why they are finishing it here. I really loved the artwork in this volume with the exception of the Annual which had really odd art which I didn't like at all.Overall I've really enjoyed this series about my fave character from the new films.

    Honestly, this whole series is such a fun space romp. I was particularly a fan of the vibrant artwork, and Poe Dameron's character is just fantastic, as are the rest of Black Squadron. Definitely had the heart of the Star Wars franchise.

    This is the conclusion of the ongoing Poe Dameron comic series. Over the first four volumes, Black Squadron went on missions for the Resistance gathering intel on the rising First Order. This volume begins at the conclusion of The Last Jedi with Poe, Rey, and Finn aboard the Falcon. Through different characters interacting, the story of The Force Awakens and The Lats Jedi is retold from new perspectives. We get to see what the Black Squadron was up to the whole time.

I really enjoyed the format of this volume.My favorite part of this comic is the interactions between primary characters. Nien Nunb makes an appearance! In the third issue, there's an epic reveal about who's interacting. After reading this, I'm really hoping that Episode IX has a time jump. The Annual #2 that is also included in this volume was unimpressive to me. It takes place prior to The Force Awakens and features some strange cameos that I didn't think fit well with the story. I give this volume a 4/5. I look forward to seeing Poe and the Black Squadron making appearances again in comics closer to Episode IX.

    I absolutely loved all the interactions between Rey, Finn and Poe (though I am kind of irritated that Poe apparently gave Finn his jacket because it almost killed him, way to firmly No Homo that moment Disney, we get it, no gays in space!) but the huge stretches about Black Squadron were a little dry, not to mention I was really looking forward to a long conversation between Poe an Leia about leadership, sacrifice, and where the rebellion is going.

    I'm sad to see this one come to an end. I hope to see more post Battle of Jakku graphic novels come out after this. I don't feel like enough stories have been told from this era. I am sure that Resistance will explore alot and likeley more will fill the gaps after Episode IX but I am hoping for more comics as well. Poe is a great character to explore, but I think it was a good time to end it. Give us some Black Squadron novels or a Poe novel, that'd be great!

    An entertaining romp to finish up the series that has been one of the stronger Marvel SW books.It isn't particularly deep and it jumps around a lot, feeling a little schizophrenic at points but it is a fun read that brings the story from pre-Force Awakens to just post-Last Jedi.I wish that this series was continuing, so I guess that's a good sign that this one went out on a high rather than lasting past its prime.

    Gotta say I think this was a perfect ending to the series. The story was exciting and there were some stunning panels spread throughout the issues. My only problem was with the way they put the annual #2 at the end of the collection. I think it took a bit away from the way the series ended in issue #31 but that’s just a minor gripe. Glad to see Soule at the top of his game on this one! 4.75 out of 5

    Fifth book and end of this long Poe Dameron's run. And it was very nice, especially epic last issue. Poe goes out (of this story) his style - big, brave and bold. But I have a strong feeling that after the next new episode of Star Wars movie he may be coming back, again filling gaps between episodes. In style.
