Star Wars | Poe Dameron: Black Squadron!
Charles Soule writes the stories sharing Poe’s relationship and interaction with the characters that where seen in “Force Awakens” with art provided by Phil Noto and that impressive painted cover.
The conversations with General Organa after finding out that Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order are hunting for the last Jedi. In this issue also reveal his relationship to BB-8. The search for Luke Skywalker begins here and with the last man to find in Lor San Tekka another mystery character in the film that you’ll find interesting in this issue. But entirely its clear how great Poe Dameron’s potential as a character was almost cut short in that crash to the deserts of Jakku.
It is further given an expansion also to finding Lor San Tekka, which would lead him to the search for Luke Skywalker. The characteristic portrayal of Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron in the comicbook was carried out nicely when he encounters an alien race who knows the whereabouts of Lor San Tekka AKA “The Explorer.” Of course things doesn’t look well when the First Order finds out that Poe and the rest of the Black Squadron are looking for “The Explorer” which gives some intense scenes that you have to wait for the second issue to find out.
Beside the main story featuring Poe Dameron, the back up comic strip “Sabbotage” featuring BB-8 as the cupid in a scene between a nameless engineer and x-wing pilot by Chris Eliopoulos is a welcome change to the serious tone. Though this one is not connected to any Star Wars comicbook or film it’s more for the light-hearted Star Wars fan to get all the feels of romance between two people in a humorous way courtesy of everyone’s favorite astromech droid.
