USA Today got the exclusive scoop on Poe Dameron comic series from Marvel Star Wars, which will see Oscar Isaac’s charismatic character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in his own Marvel Comics series. Starting in April of this year, with the Star Wars: Poe Dameron #1, written by Charles Soule (Star Wars: Lando) and drawn by Phil Noto (Star Wars:Chewbacca). Soule had this to say:
"“Poe’s one of the breakout characters of the biggest movie of all time “so to see people reacting to him so strongly now just feels like we’re hopefully in a great position.”"
He’s absolutely right, Poe Dameron was the under-the-radar favorite for many fans of The Force Awakens, so it makes sense to see him in his own headlining comic series. It also makes sense from a story perspective, as we found out about Poe’s parents through the comic series Shattered Empire. The series starred Poe’s Rebel Alliance parents, Shara Bey (an A-Wing pilot) and Kes Dameron (a soldier), in stories that took place in the aftermath of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
According to Charles Soule (writer of the series) Poe Dameron will be an ongoing title and it will include everyone’s favorite new astromech, BB-8.
Neat, now we will get to see what Poe and BB-8 were up to, before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens…and beyond. Look for Poe Dameron #1 in April, later this year.
