Star Wars: The Force Awakens brings back the Star Wars franchise back to the big screen with new characters and old, but, unfortunately, with a story that has already been told before. However, the force is still strong with this film.
Rounding up this week, I will be closing with two segments outside of the DC Universe. See, I read more than DC, they just happen to be my favorite. Now, onto the reviews. I’m opening up this segment with Marvel Comics Original Sin #5, where the story seems to have lost track of where it began followed by Star Wars #19 where the writers continue to focus on Princess Leia and her character dynamic with Luke and Han versus incorporating all three perspectives equally in the piece. Enjoy the reviews and have a wonderful weekend!
Launching off this weeks’ reviews with Star Wars! In this latest segment I’m covering Star Wars #18 as the Rebel Forces are betrayed on Princess Leia’s wedding day. But of course, she is as prepared and unwavering as always, capturing her strong personality. Then I’m covering Star Wars: Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir #2 where it’s him against Count Dooku. You just can’t keep a good Sith down…especially one who is working with a Witch of Dathomir.
For anyone who is a true Star Wars nerd, the term “Mandalorian” shouldn’t be foreign to you. After all, it’s the Mandalorian armor that made both Boba Fett and his father, Jango Fett, amazing characters and forces to be reckoned with. But now, rumors are rising that Mandalorians will play a big part in the continuance of one of the most popular franchises.

Continued from Monday, the latest in comic book reviews. This article features review on Dark Horse Comics Star Wars #16, that shows the sibling connected of Leia and Luke, unknown to them, Worlds’ Finest #22 that brings the “First Contact” story line to a full close while introducing a new story arc, and Red Hood and the Outlaws #30 that brings in some fun action sequences but sacrifices character development.
By: Cynthia A. Nightwing #29 Safety Net That really was a touching issue as far as Nightwing as concerned. In this issue, Jen, a little girl that Dick and his friends have been watching, has lost her parents to a psychopath, one Mr. Zsasz, a man who cuts himself to mark each of his victims. And she knows who Nightwing is show she stole his stuff (except his costume) and went after him. But of course Nightwing saved her and took down […]
BY: SCOTT COLLURA We kind of figured this out already — actually, some of us are old enough to have been waiting for this announcement for the past three decades — but Lucasfilm has confirmed today that Star Wars: Episode VII will be set about 30 years after Return of the Jedi[…] Read more here: http://m.ign.com/articles/2014/03/18/star-wars-episode-vii-will-be-set-30-years-after-return-of-the-jedi
By: Cynthia A. Star Wars: Darth Vader #2 The Cry of Shadows – Part 2 Another amazing issue to go into the Darth Vader vault. This issue revolves around the building relationship between the former clone trooper Koda as he dons on is old armor in the service of the Empire, his anger and hatred for the Jedi the glue that helps the relationship grow. The issue is more narrative than anything, exploring who this character is and his motivation to join […]
By: Cynthia A. Worlds’ Finest #18 Control Issues Power Girl is fun. Her powers are out of control ever since her encounter with Desaad her powers have been crazy going on and off. So in the last issue, she decides that a sun bath in space should work better for her. Even that gets out of hand as she can’t even her intake, falling down to Earth crashing near Helena and causing disaster to reign. So Helena needs to hold her under […]
