Star Wars Adventures Issue 17 Comic Book Review


The 17th issue of “Star Wars Adventures” is one of the best so far.

The great thing about going in cold to “Star Wars Adventures” is that you never know what characters or what era of stories will be told next. It’s a surprise every single time. Issue 17 kicks off with a “Star Wars Resistance” story titled “Sector 7-E.” The plot (written by Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt) finds Kaz and BB-8 on the Colossus encountering a group of thieves that have snuck into the off limits titular Section 7-E. It’s a quick and minor story with a nice moral, but it is completely in line with the series. The most notable part of the story is the amusing daydream on the first page.

Artist and colorist Valentina Pinto does a fine job here with art that resembles a cross between a children’s book and the animation from the ‘Resistance’ series. It’s a pleasant and colorful mixture to be sure.

The second story presented here is writer Michael Moreci’s “Flight of the Falcon Part 4: Lady and the Tramp.” ‘Tramp’ begins with Bazine asking Lady Proxima about the Millennium Falcon and then Proxima launches into a story about Han (and Chewie) coming back to Corellia looking for a part for the Falcon. Of course, Han runs into some familiar faces from his past.

Fans of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will undoubtedly eat this story up. It’s a very entertaining follow-up adventure to the movie with Han returning to his homeworld. The story is aided by nifty stylized art by Arianna Florean (with colorist work by Adele Matera) that feels like it could be the blueprint for a new animated series.

The comic closes out with a “Dispatches From Wild Space” piece which contains more character profiles from “Star Wars Resistance,” a spotlight on Lady Proxima, a cover art gallery and IDW comic ads.
