Since The Force Awakens was released this past December, the internet has been flooded with a tidal wave of memes proclaiming your adoration of the talented, brave, and hunky pilot, Poe Dameron (as well as his relationship with a certain ex-stormtrooper). Well, the powers-that-be have heard your cries, and now we’re gonna get more Poe! Last week, Marvel Comics announced an ongoing comic series written by Charles Soule (Star Wars: Lando) and drawn by Phil Noto (Star Wars: Chewbacca). Star Wars: Poe Dameron will follow Dameron in the time leading up to Episode VII and his meeting with Lor San Tekka on Jakku. Thanks to the anthology book Before The Awakening and the comics miniseries Shattered Empire, we already know where Poe comes from, how cool his parents are, and that Luke Skywalker gave the Dameron family a Force tree when Poe was a kid.
Thanks for watching today’s show! If you didn’t catch it last week, watch our Colony Pre-Show, in which Dan Casey and Jessica Chobot talk about the new USA show with cast members Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Peter Jacobson, Amanda Righetti, Tory Kittles, and series co-creator Ryan Condal.
Let us know in the comments what part of Poe Dameron’s life and times you would like to see fully illustrated in the new comics series and check out all of our other Poe Dameron stories!
