Review: I was really looking forward to this comic. It's the first look into the prequel-era in comic book form. Poe Dameron and the Black Squadron are all about action! I loved seeing the other Black Squadron members from the film like Snap Wexley and Jess Pava. 

The actual story and missions in this volume aren't that interesting, but the characters are great. Poe and BB-8 are quite the team. Agent Terex is also a cool antagonist. I am definitely looking forward to the second volume. I keep my eyes peeled for any hints that POe may have an interest for a certain former stormtrooper in the future. No clues yet.

I give this first volume of Poe Dameron a 4/5. It's a fun comic for fans of the Resistance pilot.
