Marvel Announces a Poe Dameron Comic Series



The first Star Wars comic to directly tie into The Force Awakens (after Shattered Empire) has been announced, and it’s about Poe Dameron!

USA Today explains the comic this way:

“The series will dig into Poe’s status as the top X-wing fighter jockey for General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and leader of a squadron with an important mission. But the evil First Order also has a goal of finding Luke, and a new villain from the organization is introduced as Poe’s chief nemesis.”

This sounds like it’s set before the events of The Force Awakens, and it’ll be interesting to see how it interacts with the book Before The Awakening. That novel detailed Poe’s history with Leia, which this comic is said to address as well.
