Star Wars Shattered Empire: Issue 3

StarWarsShatteredEmpire_03

I wasn’t much impressed with Issue 1 or Issue 2, but this one really pulls the story together. It’s like the frayed threads of the storyline have come together and it now feels more cohesive. In addition, I love that this installment features three strong women working together: Princess Leia, Shara Bey, and Queen Soruna. And I am also pleased that the women are not portrayed as sexual objects. As a parent of two daughters, I understand how important it is to have strong women role models, and this graphic novel delivers that.

I really don’t have a whole lot more to say about this issue. It’s very plot-driven and would be hard to say more without giving spoilers, and I avoid spoilers at all costs. I will say that it is worth reading this arc. It really does seem to be setting the stage for the new film, which is only a month away. I can’t wait! My geek heart is all aflutter.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to read some cool stuff today.
