Star Wars Shattered Empire – review

Journey to Star Wars : The Force Awakens

Star Wars Shattered Empire #1


This comic picks up at the end of the Return of the Jedi and as the title suggests is going to bridge the gap and be a prelude to the movie being released this December.   The Death Star battle is over and there are celebrations on Endor.  The main characters from the movie take a back seat and play supporting players in a story that focuses on a rebel pilot named Shara.  After the Empire has been defeated there are still some Imperial Troops at the base on Endor.  Shara volunteers to join Han Solo and other rebels on an attack on the base.  The art work is great and it really felt like I was watching a missing add on scene from the movie.  Can’t wait for next month.

New Marvel Comics this week 8/12

More Secret Wars titles this week (12 in all) with some of the limited series coming to an end.  I’m not enjoying the event as much as I thought I would.  There is a lot going on a almost too many different titles to afford to be able to read.  I’ll probably try and read it all once it starts appearing in the Marvel Unlimited App.  The only titles that i may pick up are Secret Wars and A-Force.
