Comic Review 188 // Star Wars Adventures, Vol. 3: Endangered

Hey! Welcome back for another installment of Library Comic finds. I am having fun digging around my local libraries and finding new and fun comics to read. I continue the Star Wars fun this week with this Star Wars Adventures title.

Title: Star Wars Adventures, Vol. 3: Endangered.

Author: Delilah S. Dawson, Sholly Fisch & Otis Frampton.

Illustrator: Derek Charm & Sean Galloway.

Fluff: From the days when Imperial power was at its peak to the time of the First Order and the Last Jedi, the all-ages adventures continue!

Rose Tico--breakout character from The Last Jedi, and typically a behind-the-scenes operator--takes center stage in the fight against the First Order! Young Anakin Skywalker competes in a podrace unlike any he's seen before! And Ezra Bridger, Hera Syndulla, and the rest of the Ghost crew must retrieve a sacred bird from the Empire's clutches, but space pirate Hondo Ohnaka might get it first!

A rotating crew of characters and creators reveal these and more untold tales from the Star Wars galaxy, in stories appropriate for all ages, from Padawans to Jedi Masters.

Collects Star Wars Adventures issues #6-8.

Straight up, I am not the target demographic, but this can't stop me from enjoying a fun little read. The prominent two short tales were surprisingly good. Some did just feel like filler pieces. For example, the "Tales from Wild Space" sits in the filler category, with most of the tales having a moral behind them. Especially the story that didn't even match the scenario in question seems a weird thing to do.

The opening tale "Rose Knows" was fascinating as it has Rose meaning Poe for the first time, and she ultimately saves his life. This was a lovely original tale of how being different or seeing things differently is a positive thing and that you should ignore the noise and follow your own path.

Following this up comes "Endangered." This was a great story, mainly due to starting the Rebels cast (a series I really enjoyed). It seems to be set in the tail end of the series and has the team following an Ezra and Hondo plan to save a score of endangered animals. This felt like a Rebel episode and was great fun to read.

Then we hit the Wild Space stories, which in all I could do without. We get an early Anakin story about doing what is best for the community, followed by a Nien Nunb and Shriv tale, where they should have looked before leaping (this was the best of the three) and a Jawa falling in love with a Droid and learning to let go.

Overall an okay read. If it had dropped the Wild Space in favour of a third proper story, this would have been stronger. Have you read any in this series? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for hanging out with me!
