Fact : The X-Wing books were the best Star Wars books. Double fact : The Rogue Squadron comics from Dark Horse were awesome. Unassailable triple fact: Poe Dameron is the best. Bearing all this in mind, we’re just a touch excited about Marvel’s upcoming Poe Dameron comic, which seems to be a spiritual successor to the Rogue Squadron tales.
The ongoing comic is coming from writer Charles Soule and artist Phil Noto, who gave us a few extra details during an interview with Comic Book Resources. Covering Poe’s career as part of the Resistance’s crack squadron of soldiers (both in the skies and on the ground) before The Force Awakens, the series will take place in a period where the conflict between the First Order, the New Republic, and the fledgling Resistance is more of a cold war than a hot one. This means Poe and his comrades will be fighting a wide array of foes beyond the First Order as they go out on missions.
