Review: Poe Dameron 26 by Soule, Unzueta, & Prianto

The Poe Dameron, Star Wars Vader comics have been building bridges between the canon films since they returned to Marvel Comics . Issue 26 of Poe Dameron is unique in the sense that new content from the latest saga is making it's debut in this issue.
The comic opens immediately after the events in The Last Jedi. As the Falcon moves through hyperspace, Poe, Rey, and Finn are sitting together. Poe is telling Rey about the events that kept him from meeting her earlier. 
Poe tells the story of the events of the Force Awakens through his eyes, including events that happened after he was seperated from Finn.

This story is a nice little interlude. The Poe Creative team has done a great job filling in events leading up to The Force Awakens and now Soule leaps Poe's arc into the next phase.

A bit about the art in this issue: Its stellar! I don't really enjoy the type of photorealism that has been in some of the Star Wars books, but this issue worked for me artistically. I especially enjoyed how Rey was illustrated in this issue.

This is part one of a two part story and is an easily stand alone read if you haven't been following the comic.
