Reviews Black Squadron (Star Wars: Poe Dameron, #1)

  • Sam Quixote
    Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron was arguably the best new character in The Force Awakens. The perfect blend of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, Poe stole every scene he was in and it wasn’t surprising when rumours of a spinoff solo movie started doing the rounds. I’m all in favour of that, Disney, but one thing: please, please, please NEVER hire Charles Soule to write the script, he will torpedo any interest in the character like he did in this crapp...

    Phil Noto's artwork was great as always on this book... shame about the story.Nah, that's a little harsh. It was OK. You'll probably get more out of it if you actually enjoyed The Force Awakens....

    Marvel has done amazing so far with the new star wars canon comics.Poe Dameron Vol 1: Black Squadron contains issues 1-5 of the new Poe Dameron comic from marvel. This is one of the few series in the new marvel comic selection that takes place in unknown time periods during and around the events of episode 7, The Force Awakens. So, of course, this makes me very excited to see more into the new universe.This volume was very exciting and showed me ...

    Charming Poe Dameron is sent on a mission by General Leia Organa to find Lor San Tekka. With the help of BB-8 and the members of Black Squadron, Poe travels from place to place, with First Order Agent Terex (I kept thinking T-Rex!) showing up on the same mission.Some action, a little mystery, with more to be revealed, hopefully, of how the First Order seems a little ahead of the Resistance.
  • Chad
    This was the first one of the Marvel Star Wars books I was bored with. Disney has such a tight control on what can be done with any of the characters that all these EU stories involving anything with the new movies are bland and uninteresting. Adding Charles Soule to the mix doesn't help. His writing for Marvel has been uninteresting at best and that trend continues here. The plot of this whole series is the hunt for Max Von Sydow. He's supposed ...

    Essentially a direct prequel to Force Awakens, the story of how Poe found Lor San Tekka, and, I presume, how the First Order was right behind him. The story was fairly good, and there's some nice action sequences. But there's some truly awful dialog in there. Nice art, though.

    Poe Dameron was my favourite new character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so the fan in me was curious to find out how a series with him as the protagonist would play out. Not that anyone would forget, but the former Republic flyer turned Resistance fighter is the best pilot in the galaxy. Black Squadron is set before the events of The Force Awakens and focusses on his and General Leia Organa's efforts to find the map revealing Luke Skywalker's...

    The story, the artwork, the plot, everything was below average. Poe Dameron is my third favorite character from Star Wars after Yoda and R2D2. You can say, that I have a little man-crush on the best pilot in the whole galaxy. I was super excited to find that Poe has his own series but I am super disappointed after reading it. The story is a prequel to Episode 7. The volume 1 collects issue #1-6. Everyone wants to find out where Luke Skywalker is,...

    My rating is me being a bitch. Kind of. Usually before I read any book I'll look up the reviews, to see if my bookish friends liked them or just to see what the ratings have averaged out to. If I would've seen the reviews before reading this, I wouldn't have read it. Fortunately, a friend came and dropped this on my table and told me to read it. He does this often and, truthfully, some of his recommendations are pthhhpbb. That said, I'm glad I re...

    I was expecting a lot from this, but it's overall pretty average. I won't complain about BB-8 and Poe getting their own comic, but we don't really get into their history much. Instead, we're introduced to a lot of other characters that'll be supporting players coming up. Probably why this arc was called Black Squadron. I hope the next arc is better.
