Poe Dameron Vol. 1: Black Squadron

Marvel also came out with a Poe Dameron comic to give the “one helluva” X-Wing pilot more of a backstory. The backstory for his parents was given in the mini series Shattered Empire, which I read but have yet to review.


This comic focuses on Poe and the Squadron he commands, Black Squadron, going on a mission for General Organa. The General tasks Poe with finding the archaeologist Lor San Tekka who studies the Jedi in hopes that San Tekka can help her find Luke Skywalker. Poe and his team go on an adventure akin to a wild goose chase to find San Tekka, but they aren’t the only ones looking for him. The First Order is hot on their trail, and The Resistance just might have a traitor in their mist.

Several pilots and character featured in The Force Awakens are in the story. This is essentially a prequel for TFA, as it gives backstory to not just Poe but the squadron as a whole. I found it exciting and engaging. I was not a big fan of TFA, but I liked Poe and was excited to learn more about him through the comic. The search for Lor San Tekka is definitely something I want to read, no matter what format it’s in.

I give this one Four Lightsabers as well.
