Poe Dameron (played by Oscar Isaac) is the first character introduced in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” yet he isn’t the main character of the film.
Although the film doesn’t divulge much about Dameron, he is established as an experienced Resistance fighter and someone Leia (Carrie Fisher) trusts. Despite not getting much screen time, he quickly became a huge fan favorite. Now fans of the daring pilot can get to know more about Dameron before “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” though Marvel’s latest comic book series STAR WARS: POE DAMERON.
Seasoned Star Wars writer Charles Soule (Lando, Obi-Wan and Anakin) and artist Phil Noto (Chewbacca) take you to a galaxy far, far away for the new adventures of Poe Dameron – former Republic flyer turned Resistance fighter and the best pilot in the galaxy!
Here’s the official synopsis:
Set before the events of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, be there for Poe’s daring adventures as they take him to the edges of the galaxy and back. Hand-picked for the Resistance by legendary General Leia Organa, follow Poe, BB-8 and a squadron of X-Wing pilots on a top-secret mission that could hold the key to saving the galaxy. But with the full might of the First Order on their tail, will the operation be short lived?
And as a bonus, the first issue features a special back-up story starring none other than BB-8! Chris Eliopoulos writer and artist of the “Hawkeye” series brings you an eight-page tale of everyone’s favorite spherical astromech droid!
