Star Wars: Princess Leia – Issue 5

Leia_05

This issue concludes the arc. It was short, but sweet. I love the way Leia is depicted as a strong female leader. As a father of two girls, I appreciate stories with strong women leaders. Girls need role models, and Leia is all that.

What stood out for me in this issue is the ideology of what constitutes Adreaanian strength. Strength is exhibited by how one responds to difficult situations. And as is asserted here, it is not through violence that we demonstrate our strength, but in our abstinence from turning to violence.

We are Alderaan. We answer rage with wisdom. We answer fear with imagination. We answer war with hope. We are, each of us, important.

Thanks for stopping by, and looking forward to the new Star Wars installment hitting theaters in December.
