Review: Star Wars: Poe Dameron #1


4.5 out of 5


4.5 out of 5


  • Release Date: April 06, 2016
  • Pros:

    Beautifully drawn
    Captures Poe character perfectly
    Ties into The Force Awakens

  • Cons:

    The tone of the comic was divided

Not too long ago, in a comic shop just down the road…

Star Wars: Poe Dameron #1, is the third on-going series added to the current Star Wars cannon. It was released on April 6th by Marvel Comics. The series is written by Charles Soule with the art by Phil Noto.

Unlike the rest of the comics out right now, this story takes place the closest to The Force Awakens in the time line. This story starts 30 years after the defeat of the Empire. This comic is pretty much taking place before the movie starts. That is very exciting for any fan, mainly because of how little we know of events leading up to the current film.


The comic starts with Poe on a mission to find Lor San Tekka. This is the man of mystery who gives Poe and BB-8 the information to Luke’s whereabouts at the beginning of The Force Awakens. Which is exactly why they want to find him. Leia is convinced that Lor is her only hope to finding her brother Luke, and that Poe is her only hope to finding Lor. It all makes sense to me. To aid Poe in his mission, General Leia tells Poe that he can assemble a team. Besides, what good is an ace X-Wing pilot without his squadron? Poe assembles five of his most trusted allies and the Black Squadron is born. Along with BB-8, Leia sends him off with some foreboding words about trusting his team. I got the feeling that this was some foreshadowing and there is a Judas among them to be revealed in the future? Hmmmm.

The comic looks beautiful, and reads well. I could hear Oscar Issac’s voice in my head as I read Poe banter with BB-8. I loved it. Everything flowed, nothing seemed forced. I really enjoy how this comic is going to tie into the movie. I also feel this is a great way for us to familiarize ourselves with Poe’s character until the next film comes out. I think this is a great addition to the Star Wars universe. My only dislike of this issue was the ending. After the story ends, there is another short story that seems to be a little adventure with BB-8 playing Cupid. I thought this was rather childish and even looks like a Sunday morning cartoon. I get that Star Wars is for all ages, but lets not try and please everyone at the same time. I thought the tone of the second, shorter story undermined the main story and its more serious feeling.

I have said it before, and I’ll say it again, I feel bad for people who don’t get new Star Wars on the regular. By this, I am referring to the many Star Wars comics.I give it a 4.5 out of 5, the comic is worth a purchase and as always I am excited for any new Star Wars comic. May the force be with you.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    The fresh new Zune browser is amazingly Wonderful, still not as Fantastic as the iPod’s. It operates nicely, nevertheless isn’t as instant as Safari, and consists of a clunkier interface. If yourself at times system on getting the world-wide-web browser that’s not an issue, still if you might be coming up with to browse the website alot towards your PMP then the iPod’s bigger display screen and greater browser could possibly be major.

    Hands down, Apple’s application retail store wins by way of a mile. It’s a enormous option of all styles of programs vs a pretty sad amount of a handful for Zune. Microsoft includes plans, particularly within just the realm of games, however I’m not certainly I might require towards bet on the potential if this attribute is vital towards yourself. The iPod is a a great deal improved final decision within just that circumstance.

    This is turning out to be a bit even further subjective, but I considerably prefer the Zune Market place. The interface is colorful, is made up of a lot more aptitude, and some interesting functions like ‘Mixview’ that allow for yourself instantly look at very similar albums, new music, or other users similar toward what you’re listening towards. Clicking upon one of those people will centre on that product, and one more preset of “neighbors” will come into perspective, allowing your self to navigate over investigating by related artists, music, or people. Chatting of users, the Zune “Social” is too best exciting, permitting your self identify other individuals with shared choices and getting to be friends with them. Your self then can pay attention to a playlist designed primarily based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening towards, which is way too interesting. Individuals anxious with privateness will be relieved in the direction of know oneself can prevent the general public towards seeing your person listening habits if by yourself as a result pick.

    Zune and iPod: Optimum people in america evaluate the Zune in the direction of the Contact, however immediately after viewing how slim and shockingly very low and mild it is, I attempt it towards be a in its place special hybrid that combines qualities of the two the Touch and the Nano. It really is Quite vibrant and lovely OLED exhibit is a little bit scaled-down than the touch screen, yet the participant alone feels fairly a little bit smaller sized and lighter. It weighs around 2/3 as significantly, and is considerably scaled-down inside of width and top, although being simply a hair thicker.
