Poe Dameron #1 Review


Poe Dameron #1

By Charles Soule, Phil Noto (Illustrator), Phil Noto (Art), Phil Noto (Art)



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.

Summary from Goodreads.

Was one of your favourite characters to come out of The Force Awakens Poe Dameron? Then this series will be perfect as you will get to know him before the events of The Force Awakens.

This first issue shows General Leia giving Poe Dameron a top-secret mission, to find Lor San Tekka (the bloke that he found at the start of The Force Awakens). Whilst not much actually occurred during this first issue, we got what I thought was some important understanding of how Poe operates as a person (and also justifies how he acts in The Last Jedi).

The artwork was neither here nor there. Whilst it was very bright and colourful, it just was not working for me. The art style used lots of lines, and by lines, I mean thick lines. This may be what was distracting me from the story was it seem to take me out of it.

All-in-all, this gave some great context to how Poe acted in The Last Jedi, so I would highly recommend this series if you want to understand why Poe acts as he does.
