The first in the much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens spinoff is titled Star Wars: Poe Dameron. Writer Charles Soule teams with Chewbacca artist Phil Noto to give us a look into the life of Poe before he hit the screen in this past year’s blockbuster.
Poe is an attention demanding character and has been since the moment he crashed into our lives. He’s quick witted and charmingly confident. But this information is known, its a given, and we are still left with little to no real knowledge of who Poe was before the Resistance.
This is what we do know, he’s a pilot, and as the ‘first look‘ comic strips indicate, a fighter pilot. No huge surprise. We know he is the son of a rebel fighter pilot and a rebel commando, no doubt growing up on the stories of Alliance Campaigns. We can only imagine Poe as a child pilot prodigy scaring the life out of his mother by stealing his father’s x-wing. (Did he even know his mother? Come on, this wouldn’t be the first time a Star Wars kid didn’t meet their parents.) But thats where all the facts about Poe Dameron ends. We can only assume all the mystery is because Marvel has full intention to disclose everything in the upcoming comic spinoff.
*Chants* “We need more, give us more!” Thankfully waiting is something we won’t have to do for much longer, Star Wars: Poe Dameron hits book stores April 6th.
