Marvel’s Poe Dameron comic, which wrapped up this week, has given us important insight into a character who has not exactly had the spotlight in either Star Wars: The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi. Despite that, Poe’s comics have had to jostle in tone just as the character himself has been jostled by the events of the films — leading to a bittersweet conclusion.

The current arc in Marvel's Poe Dameron comic series is set in a tantalising context: the moments immediately after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi come to a close.
But while it can't look too far ahead, it still manages to find some emotional time for the tattered heroes of the Resistance to decompress.
Star Wars' droids are usually meant to be a little bit too cute for their own good -- just look at BB-8! But we also love when that cuteness is subverted with a violent streak, like with Knights of the Old Republic's HK-47, Rebels' Chopper or the Darth Vader comic's Triple Zero and BT. Or, case in point, this astromech from the new Poe Dameron comic.
Ever since Marvel announced that Poe Dameron would be getting his own Star Wars comic, we've been very eager to read it. Thankfully, it was worth waiting for. Just like the film that inspired it, Poe Dameron is a blast -- one lays down the groundwork for something even better come after it.
Marvel is really looking forward to its Poe Dameron comic. I mean, it's understandable -- mainly because we're also incredibly excited for Marvel's new ongoing Star Wars series -- but man, Marvel's going all out. As in, they're taking over an entire day to celebrate all things Poe.
Fact: The X-Wing books were the best Star Wars books. Double fact: The Rogue Squadron comics from Dark Horse were awesome. Unassailable triple fact: Poe Dameron is the best. Bearing all this in mind, we're just a touch excited about Marvel's upcoming Poe Dameron comic, which seems to be a spiritual successor to the Rogue Squadron tales.
