Review: Star Wars Adventures 5 & 6

Ladies take the lead in these issues. First up Leia infiltrates to Empire with ease and humor to rescue a  certain farmboy. The backup story for this issue is about PORGS!! The porg story is a cute litle intro to the habits of the porgs It's very cute.

 Issue 6 is about Rose in her story we get to see more of her technical gifts as well as a nice cameo by Poe. I really loved the parts with Paige and Rose together in this story. They have such different personalities but support each other and various ways. The back up story in thes issue is a cute one with Young Anakin Skywalker.

Review: Pacific Eim Aftermath Issue 1

This is a comic tie in to the Pacific Rim Uprising movie. The story opens in 2021. It's a gritty world post monsters. Humans have quickly forgotten the terror or the Kaiju years, and former pilots like Griffin find themselves with nothing to do and nobody who cares. 

Griffin is working with a crew excavating old ruins when he come up against baddie hannibal Chau.

I loved this intro story but my favorite part was the the few pages of the backup story featuring Jake Pentecost son of Striker Pentecost. This is the character being played by John Boyega in the new film. 

I'm really excited to see where this story will unfold.

Review: Forces of Destiny : Hera

From IDW

Hera has quickly become one of my favorite Rebels characters. In this adventure written by Devin Grayson and illustrted by Monica Kubina, we see Hera at her best in the cockpit and on land.  Hera is visiting the Fekunda Outpost to see if she can make a trade deal with them. 

Hera arrives to find an Imperial presence at the once independent station. No Hera must use her diplomatic skills to help the local residents fight against the Empire.

The art on this issue is fantastic. I loved Hera's look and the fun bits with Chopper.

This was a really fun adventure.
