    It’s weird to think that, when it started, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” ranked among my most disappointing Marvel-Star-Wars-comics, both ongoing and mini. Early on in its run, writer Charles Soule and artist Phil Noto seemed way too confined by their story’s placement in the broader Star Wars timeline, to the point that the first two arcs felt stifled, telling stories that-while entertaining enough-didn’t feel like they were doing much more than treading water until the REAL story could start. As so

    It’s weird to think that, when it started, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” ranked among my most disappointing Marvel-Star-Wars-comics, both ongoing and mini. Early on in its run, writer Charles Soule and artist Phil Noto seemed way too confined by their story’s placement in the broader Star Wars timeline, to the point that the first two arcs felt stifled, telling stories that-while entertaining enough-didn’t feel like they were doing much more than treading water until the REAL story could start. As someone who was – and frankly, still is – craving more content in the post-Return-of-the-Jedi, pre-The-Force-Awakens-era, to have something so close to what I want fall JUST short of my hopes for it was frustrating, to say the least.

    And then something funny happened: over the course of its second volume, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” improved. Like, a lot. Storylines became less focused on leading up to “The Force Awakens,” characters that we’d only been allowed to know tangentially in the first two arcs started to become fleshed out, and Soule’s overall pacing seemed to sharpen. By the end of Volume 2, “Poe Dameron” had slowly but surely gone from being among my least anticipated “Star Wars” comics each month to becoming easily my most anticipated. And Volume 3? It’s the best story yet.

    Artist Angel Unzueta takes over art-duties this volume, and while there’s definitely an adjustment period required in transitioning from Noto’s rougher, sandier look to Unzueta’s more fluid style, I’d argue that Unzueta’s technique fits the story and characters even better than Noto: whether it’s depicting epic space battles or just capturing the physical likeness of the characters, there’s just something about Unzueta’s art that feels perfectly “Star Wars.”

    It also doesn’t hurt that we’re now three volumes into the series, which means that Soule is at a point with these characters that he’s able to tell stories with Black Squadron that, just by virtue of our increased familiarity with them, feel weightier and more emotionally involved than they might have if they’d taken place during the first volume. Like a fine wine, “Star Wars: Poe Dameron” is series that has only improved with age. Here’s to Volume 4.

    Another enjoyable entry to the Poe Dameron series... Black Squadron takes on another risky adventure... I enjoyed the artwork and the story, which had several elements that made it alot of fun. Plus, it was choc full of action.

    Once again Marvel shows it has the magic touch when it comes to STAR WARS comics. A very timely read with THE LAST JEDI just a few weeks away from release. I could very much see Poe starring in a series of his own films. He's a great character and the action featured here would work perfectly on the big screen.

    Oddly's story is tied up, and I love the new edition to the team. We also learn more about the other members, so good installment.

    This volume has some great writing. Javos is an interesting character with an initially complex motivation. Her double bluff in the first issue (#7) had me hooked. Paralleling Dameron and Terex's newfound roles in their respective organisations was a narrative highlight. The mission to get fuel adequately sets up the Resistance's desperation while further developing Poe status as pilot extraordinaire. The Oddy Muva plot line is also rapped up nicely. It's unfortunate that the First Order is only

It's unfortunate that the First Order is only portrayed as relentlessly evil and mildly incompetent.

    Overall a strong book, but Snap Wexely portrayed by JJ Abrams fat friend is still too frikin' annoying.

    4.5 Man, this series is really good. AKA: enjoyable as hell. I love the characterization and bond between the squad mates that I really hope gets expanded in the The Last Jedi WHICH IS BARELY A WEEK AWAY YOU GUYS.

  • André-claude Lebel

    I did not like it as much as the previous volume, but it was still pretty good. There's two new characters introduced, one is, so far, an uninteresting First Order lady, the other is an old friend of Poe's, her design is wonderful and she's quite cool. As for the story, it ties up most of the storylines from the previous volume.

  • Martijn Van

    Thi ongoing series has one big problem. The bad guys are covered in mist. As long as the star wars movies don't teach us more about The First Order, the comics wont be able to dig to deep. Knowing that the stuff Poe Dameron 3 Legend Lost accomplishes is even greater. It's the first real good Poe story arc and by using stuff from the previous 2 it adds dept and threat to it. Is it fun? Yes. Is it essential reading? Nope.

    Oh boy, what a disappointment. The first two Poe Dameron comic collections were excellent in every way, this one was not. It seemed rushed. The art was awkward, as if they simply took screen shots of the main characters and used cartooning-software to turn them into comic book style. There were multiple mistakes drawn in (for example, in two different frames Poe's X-wing was the standard blue and silver rather than his black and orange). This last one might seem petty, but, honestly, it's a grap

    Hopefully they fix this comic for the next issues.
