Synopsis: What happened to Captain Phasma after Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens? Writer Kelly Thompson (HAWKEYE) and artist Marco Checchetto (AVENGERS WORLD, PUNISHER, GAMORA) expand Captain Phasma's story and reveal how she escaped the destruction of Starkiller Base. It's the stunning lead-in to this winter's blockbuster big-screen Star Wars film, and everything you need to know is right here! 


Review: Captain Phasma has been the Boba Fett character of the sequel trilogy. She looks bad-ass and intimidating, but she hasn't really proven herself in the movies. This comic, taking place between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, shows Phasma in her element. We get to see her utilizing survival skills. We get to see her take the role of a leader. The Captain Phasma shown in this comic is what I expected from her when I first saw her design before The Force Awakens was released. 

I liked seeing Captain Phasma covering her own trail. It makes up for her actions in The Force Awakens. I also liked the amount of female characters in this comic. It shouldn't be something to make note of, but unfortunately it still is when it comes to such big brand stories. I really enjoyed and hope to see more of the character Pilot. 

I give this comic a 4/5. I really liked what it did to the character of Captain Phasma. She was shown as a more fully fledged character. It was an interesting, short, survival story.
