THE WAITING GAME IV
With over a month go to, what is a Star Wars fan to do to keep sane? There are a few things I can suggest…
Shattered Empire is a Marvel Comics offering that fills in “Journey to the Force Awakens” with a pretty good, post Return of the Jedi story. This four issue mini series (which you can already order from amazon as a trade paperback) has more links to the characters from the original trilogy and deeper introductions to the characters from the new trilogy than Aftermath featured. Written by comic book veteran Greg Rucka and beautifully illustrated by Mark Checchetto (and others), this is a very good jumping on point for Star Wars fans who want to know a little more about Poe Dameron. It is, however, the second best comic book we’re featuring this week… stay tuned for the best!
